Having problems with your Dell OptiPlex GX280 PC Desktop ?

The video goes to sleep.. and I can only get it back by powering down and back again.,.,..what a pain..???

Answers :

I don't think it is your computer I think it is your monitor and your power options settings in the control panel. If you have turn off monitor after xx mins. and you have the wrong or no driver for your monitor then it go's to sleep and don't know how to wake up. Find the right driver for your monitor or chose never turn off monitor and use a screen saver. Please rate me, myseluth
Hi there.
Go to the control panel, select power options and set the computer to never go to sleep, all the options and quick links are down the left hand side in Vista.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
