Having problems with your Dell PC Desktops ?

My computer monitor keeps clicking off and remains off until I push the power button on the monitor. Then it immediately clicks off again. I have tried shanging the monitor and it continues to do the same thing. Any ideas?


Answers :

Hi,
If you have changed the monitor and it's still doing the same thing then the problem is not your monitor but the power options of your computer.
If you go to the control panel and select power options you can set when you want your display and hard drives to power down or you can set them to "never" in all cases.
If you just want to wake the PC up, hit the return key or space bar.



Regards.
