Monitor Stuck In Standby

I spent much of yesterday with my partner (guy) re-building my old knackered pc with a new motherboard, processor, graphics card and ram yesterday. Basically all i salvaged was the psu, dvd drive and the hard drives. The main guts of the machine has been replaced. Guy ran the machine through his monitor and set up windows 7 on the machine and it was all working like a charm at his house. I brought the machine home this morning and hooked it up to my monitor, an f-419 neovo 19" lcd and i can't get the monitor to come out of standby mode. The machine boots and you can hear the internal beeps but the monitor light goes orange and the screen stays black. It looks like this is a reasonably common problem but i can't find any topics online that fit my problem exactly.

Can anyone suggest what may be the cause of my problems and how i can solve it? Unfortunately i don't have a spare monitor i can test but i'm fairly sure there is nothing wrong with my monitor as it worked fine with the machine before it was upgraded. If it were a resolution problem i'd expect the monitor to at least show signs of life until windows loaded . But i don't get anything at all on the monitor. T find any topics online that fit my problem exactly. Can anyone suggest what may be the cause of my problems and how i can solve it? Unfortunately i don

Monitor Stuck In Standby Mode

My pc has run perfect for about 2 months now. But the other day i was on it and it suddenly crashed. I waited for a while but it still remained frozen. So i restarted it but there was no display on my mointor, it's like stuck in standby mode it's just stays on the orange light not the green. At first i thought it may of been the video card so i swapped it with a gforce 4 and still it stays in standby mode. It's not the monitor cause it's working fine with this pile of junk for a pc im having to use now. Anyone have any ideas whats causing this problem.

Eee 701 Stuck In Standby Mode

I have a eee701 (one of the original 4gb) i installed windows xp (a small condensed version of it) but it still has most of the things we usually need. It has worked for the past year with no hiccups. Recently i put my computer lid down (as i usually do) so it can go into standby mode. I may have been downloading something while i did this. However, this time, when i tried to open the monitor again after, my screen was black. My mouse could move, and all the fn (functions) could work just fine. I can change contrast, turn off and on internet.

However, it is stuck on a black screen nevertheless. No key stroke, no monitor changing can make the black screen change. If i plug any usb mouse, usb chargers, they all work. But it just seems like its stuck at a black screen. I have tried all the f8 start up options (use last good config, safe mode), but they don't change the situation either. I have taken out the battery, and also just tried to let the laptop load for 10 - 15 minutes. But this not working either.

So in summary:

1) after windows loading screen = screen is black with a working mouse
2) monitor does not display anything else besides a mouse, but all other functions are or seems to be working. 3) bios and f8 can be accessed fine

Someone mentioned that i should try taking out the cmo battery from the motherboard? Is it that possible with a eee 701?

After Booting Monitor Goes Straight Into Standby Mode

I recently got a new case, and after removing everything, and installing them into the new case, i get a blank screem. The computer appears to be booting, but the monitor goes straight into standby mode when i turn it on. Whilst i had the case open, i installed a new heatsink fan on my 9800 pro, which i thought may have been the problem, but i have used an old 4000xt, which was previously housed in this computer. Still, blank monitor. I've already tried it with just the old 4000xt in, without soundcard and 9800 pro (the old one is pci ops: ), should i try it with just one stick of ram as well, or without the hdd connected. I don't think it is a broken monitor, as when i remove the cable from the gfx, i get a 'no signal' error on the monitor. Update: i've managed to pass post and beep, but the monitor goes stright into standby with either gfx, well it is in standby, and doesnt turn on shall we say - when i turn it off, and on again, its on green for a few seconds before it goes onto its orange standby colour.

4850 - Monitor Goes To Standby After Winxp Boot

I'm having a strange issue with the 4850: after windows xp is done booting, just before the login screen, the monitor goes into standby, however i can boot find in safe-mode. This only occurs after installing amd drivers for the card. When i uninstall the drivers via safe-mode, it works fine. I've tried display driver version 9. 5, 9. 4 , and a couple of 8. X's. No help. This issue just started for some reason. Intel 7200 on gigabyte p43 , 2 gigs ram and visiontek 4850 on windows xp sp3

Monitor Stuck In Power Save Mode After Coming Back From Long Idle

Not sure if this is os, display or graphics card trouble; i have my displays set to turn off after 15 minutes of inactivity in windows 7 with a nvidia gtx 260. If i come back to the computer, after it has been idle for a long time (especially when logged out) the secondary display will turn on but the primary display will be stuck in power save mode. When i move the mouse or hit a key, the secondary display (dell 2407wfp) shows the wallpaper image or blank screen if logged out but effectively turns back "on".

The primary display (dell 2408, much newer) flickers for a sec, shows the dvi icon, then goes back to power save mode and turns off as if its not getting a signal from the graphics card. Turning the monitor on or off again does not solve the problem. Restarting the computer (holding down the power button) does solve the problem, but i'd rather not hard-restart it like that every time i come back to my computer. Sometimes by bringing a window to the foreground on the primary display, such as pressing ctrl alt del then opening task manager blind, or right clicking on the secondary display and opening the nvidia control panel, i can get the display to turn back on.

Standby Battery

Basically i have got a problem with my dell latitude d500 laptop. I was using it with no problems, until i moved to a different room, when i got there i noticed that the computer had turned itself off, i tried to turn it back on but it wouldn't start up. Whenever i press the power button 4 lights come on, the speakers click once and the lights go back off after a couple of seconds. I tried removing the standby battery and preesing the power button and the same thing happened, so i replaced the battery. Now with the new battery in i have the same problem. Is there anything special i need to do after replacing the battery? Is there anything else that could be causing the problem?

Computer In Standby Mode Never Came Back

I accidentally pressed the little moon key on the dynex keyboard connected to my desktop pc which although normally causes the pc to enter stand-by apparently means "commit suicide"! I saw a message that said the system was entering stand-by and i have as of yet been unable to get the machine to wake from it's slumber. I've completely powered off the system and disconnected the power cord and i've tried the cmos jumper trick as well. I can't even get a post screen with no thing plugged in but the video card and monitor!

I've removed the cmos battery and will let the system discharge over night so i'll post back in the morning, but any other suggestions would be appreciated! I have never encountered a case of a computer being this difficult to get out of standby, so i'm afraid the problem must run deeper than that.

Computer Freezes Starting Up, Shutting Down, Standby

I don't know why but my computer has started freezing when its started up, shutting down, or coming out of standby. At start up it doesn't make it to the post screen, everything turns on and then just sits there, nothing shows up on the display. Same thing with standby. On shutdown it will freeze at the "windows xp is shutting down" screen. I have to either hit the restart button to get it to start up and come out of standby or i have to hold the power button for 4 secs to get it to shutdown. I didn't have these problems till about 1 week ago when i received my dell 2407wfp-hc, i doubt this would be the cause though.

Computer Disconnects From Internet When Put On Standby

My computer sometimes disconnects from the internet when i put it on standby. Okay, when it comes back on, sometimes my internet has simply stopped working. The network connections page will tell me it's still working though. It says it can't renew the ip address when i try to make it repair itself, unplugging and replugging the internet cord has no effect, and if i try to disable and then enable it, it doesn't register that i've disabled it unless i shut it down and start it up again. Which is also the only thing that gets the internet working again. Does anybody have any idea what might be causing this, and what i can do to stop it?

X-fi Titanium Drivers For Vista X64 Cause Standby Problems

The drivers that are on the web now for the x-fi titanium cause an error message to pop up upon resume from s3 standby. The message is: host process for windows services stopped working and was closed. The audio system then has to restart in windows which forces me to wait longer. Also for whatever reason 5% volume is moderately loud and is the lowest volume i can go which requires me to go into the eq to lower the volume further. I noticed the driver change said it increased the system volume for vista sp1. Looks like they forgot to even test headphones.

Game Getting Stuck

I just formated my pc and reinstalled everything. Now when i started to play deus ex on multiplayer, it started to lag. If i start running i would stop suddenly and could see a couple of frames pass by and then return to normal for like 4 seconds. The same cycle goes over and over again. I have a cable internet connection and ping is also like 124 in the game. Moreover, my computer and graphics cards for far better than what the game requires.

Data Stuck On Computer

I have an old computer at my office. There is some important business data stored on the hard drive that i would like to transfer onto another computer. The computer has a cd drive and a 3x5 disk drive, but neither of them work (the computer does not recognize any cd in the system, and any disk inserted the computer reads as not formatted, even if it is). The computer does not have usb port, only serial ports. Since the computer is old and i have no desire to upgrade it, i was wondering if there was any way to remove the data without spending large amounts of money to replace the cd and disk drives. If possible, i would like to keep the hard disk intact. Any help would be appreciated. If you need further information, i will try to accommodate you.

Stuck At Obtaining Ip Address

I've tried just about every typical wireless internet troubleshooting solution i know of, including resetting the router, and i still can't connect. The best i can do is "limited access. " Windows troubleshooter seems to think that i have entered the wrong security key, but that is not the case. And the problem is not with my computer because i can't connect with my droid either. It gets stuck at "obtaining ip address. " Any ideas?

Keyboard Malfunctioning, Some Keys Stuck

My keyboard on my tower seems to some stuck keys on it (namely z x y c v), and i really need it to work. I never needed any drivers or anything, and it's a generic ps/2 keyboard i got for 10 bucks. Whacking it against the desk worked last time this happened, but so far no beans. My other option is to use my original apple imac keyboard. I tried plugging it in, and it works for about 10 seconds, cuts out, and comes back again, and this keeps on repeating. What are my options? I really need to get this working again, so i can use my pc.

Stuck In Pci Device Listing

I've had this problem before and i had to format my hd. I thought it was a one-time thing, but it's been a few months since that happened and now it happened again. When i turn on my computer, it gets stuck in the pci device listing and never boots windows. This is what the screen looks like: after a few seconds, it tells me i have a disk error or something. I set this hd as a slave and i can access it just fine from windows so it seems like the only problem is that it is not booting windows. My computer is a sony vaio pcv-rx450, my hd is a 250gb seagate, and my os is windows xp pro. I ran a diagnostic thing that i downloaded from seagate's website, and it told me that my hd passed the test with inconsistencies. It also said that this is normal and not considered a corruption. It doesn't tell me what to do either.

Memory Clock Frequency Stuck

My crappy 512 meg evga 7300gt has been exhibiting a strange syptom as of late. I'd been running it for months oced to 415 mhz (core) and 650 mhz (memory), up from 350 and 533, respectively. I've been playing games like s. T. A. L. K. E. R. , Hl2, bf2142, prey, coh, supcom, etc, and aside from the occasional artifact, they all ran pretty consistently with few episodes of overheating. I recently updated to the latest forceware drivers (94. 24), and soon after i noticed that my memory clock was set to 266 mhz as the supposed stock setting. It'll only overclock to 1/2 the speed increase i had before, so it'll now run at a max of ~325 mhz. Anything much above that and it won't even pass the little test it runs in xp. I don't know if it ever ran correctly with these new drivers, because the week i updated them i wasn't really playing games. Does all this indicate that maybe half my memory dead? It doesn't seem like the card would even work if that was the case. It plays some of my games-albeit slowly-pausing to load an area or room and then running okay until a lot more needs to be rendered. My system tends to crash frequently now though. If you're thinking bad drivers are the issue, i already uninstalled the new drivers, ran driver cleaner, and tried using the quadro 160. 02 drivers and also the original forceware (84. 66) that came with my card. Still the same problem. Any help/input is greatly appreciated. If i wasn't so broke, i'd avoid soliciting all of you for help and just chuck it for an 8600 gts.
