  • Vista- monitor keeps on falling asleep and not waking up again..

    I've just started using a new PC with vista, but for some reason the monitor turns itself off like it's in sleep mode(which I have disabled via control panel), I press the power button on the monitor and it turns on for a second(the power LED, not the screen), but then shuts off again so I have to turn the PC off at the power button and restart windows. It does it more frequently when It's running games. Anyone have any ideas what I can do? because I'm stuck.

    It sounds like there is a problem with either Windows Vista (of which I have not much experience with) or your computer is configured incorrectly. The best option for you is to try and contact the technical support of your PC manufacturer; since it is definitely still under warranty they will be obliged to resolve the problem.

      what graphics card do you have.
      have you tried a different monitor.
