Having problems with your HP PC Desktops ?

Cannot get monitor out of sleep mode

\015 I have a HP m7463w desktop computer. For some reason I cannot get it to come out of sleep mode. I can turn it on and off and it comes back for maybe 3 secs then goes right back to black. I have tried unplugging everything and waiting for a while to maybe have it reset itself and nothing. I ran a virus scan and did find a virus that has been quaranteened, I have set everything to never as far as sleep mode and hibernating goes. I checked the bios and it is set to PCI, I have uninstalled the driver and that didn't work, and checked the color settings, as well as updating the graphic driver and also tried rolling back the graphic driver. Nothing is working. Any ideas what I can do. I do know that before this happened my son was either on You Tube or WWE.com. Thanks\015

About 90% of the time this is a cable problem. Check the connection on both ends. Make sure the cable is firmly seated. If it is, pull out the cable and check the ends to make sure that none of the pins are bent. If so, straighten the pin back out and reinsert the cable.You could also try a replacement cable.

It could be a video card problem but since you seem to indicate that you have worked on the computer, I'm betting that you connected a different monitor to your computer. If that is the case you are good.

The only other thing (well there are other but even less likely) that might have happened is that the refresh and resolution for you video card got changed to a setting that your monitor (assuming it is a CRT monitor) can't handle. This could have actually permanently damaged the monitor. In WinXP right click on the desktop, select properties, select the settings tab and move the slider all the way to less. Click apply and try and connect the non-working monitor.
