Crt Monitor Stay In Suspend Mode

We are currently upgrading the operating system on our computers from windows xp to windows 7 and i have picked up a problem. After the os is installed and the computer reboots the monitor just stays in power save mode. I have tried booting in safe mode and setting the screen resolution, the color depth and even refresh rate lower. When i connect a lcd to it instead of the old crt it works fine. Any suggestions on how to get the old crt monitors to work?Blue screen of death is not the end, it's merely the beginning!

Monitor Goes Directly In Sleep Mode On Boot Up

I bought a computer last week online (had it built from a popular site that i've used before). The computer worked fine for a few days. Last night, in the middle of playing a game, it crashed or something. Upon reboot, the monitor went directly into power saving mode. I thought my old monitor was t he problem, so i bought a new monitor. Same thing. When i turn it on, the monitor goes right into sleep mode. Maybe once out of every 20 or 30 reboots it will actually boot up, or i can spam f8 and get it to boot into safe mode.

I read online to turn off all the power-saving options. So i did (and i also installed the new monitor driver from the disc while i was able to do so). Rebooted. Same  problem. Every time i boot up, all i see is a black screen and the monitor goes right into power saving mode, hitting f8 does nothing, no normal boot screens even appear. The boot up "beep" never sounds off, and the fan seems to die down very quickly as well. Whats really confusing is that it worked fine for like 5 days. Then poof there's some kind of conflict.

Maybe the onboard video card is turned on in the bios or something? I don't know cause i cant even get that far. Booting up gets me to a sleeping monitor every time. Anyone got any ideas? These are the exact parts i am working with: amd phenom ii x2 550 dual-core cpu4gb ddr2-800 pc6400ati radeon hd5750 1gb single cardasus m4a785-m amd785g hybrid crossfire chipset power supply 600 watt windows 7 (64 bit)

Sound Only Comes On When Monitor Goes Into Power Saving Mode

Windows 7 ultimate on a gigabyte g33-ds2r mobo, no sound :(hi i wonder if anyone is having the same problem? I have tried everything i can think of, installing drivers from the dvd that came with the mobo, going to download the latest ones from gigabyte & realtek, but still no sound. Everything seems to be working correctly. Drivers are detected. No errors. In fact on my taskbar, my volume controls have that little green bar moving up and down. Nd i just noticed that when my computer's screen goes blank, there's sound its only when i press a key or move my mouse. It jumps back to the desktop that the sound disappears :(please help i am real close to buying a sound-card.

Keyboard / Mouse Inactive After Monitor Goes Into Sleep Mode

I seem to be having a problem with both the keyboard and mouse going inactive after my monitor goes into a "sleep" mode and is "woke-up". The mouse works for a few seconds after that and then "freezes& if i unselected the "turn monitor off after 1 hour", then i never experience the problem. I'd like to select "after 1 hour" as i leave my pc on constantly. I have the most recent drivers for my monitor (acer al2216w), am using a logitech "access" keyboard and ms wheel mouse optical usb. The drivers for the keyboard and mouse were installed by windows 7.

When Coming Out Of Sleep Mode, Monitor Wont Turn Off

When coming out of sleep mode, my pc's screen saver won't come on and the monitor won't turn off. My windows 7 64-bit pc is set to bring itself out of sleep mode every morning to run backups. About one third of the time, when it does this, the monitor stays black, with the only visible element being the cursor. The full display is only shown when i move the mouse. This is what i would like to happen all the time.

However, other times, the full desktop is shown when the pc comes out sleep mode, and the screen saver will not come on after this, nor will the monitor put itself in standby mode after 10 minutes like it's meant to. Does anybody know how to fix this so it behaves the way i'd like all the time? It drives me mad as the monitor lights up the darkened room. My graphics adapter is an ati radeon 4200.

Win 7 Does Not Recognize Monitor When Wakes From Sleep Mode

Windows 7 does not recognize my monitor when it wakes from "sleep" mode. When windows 7 awakes from "sleep" mode my desktop screen is distorted.control panel, screen resolution lists the monitor as "generic non-pnp monitor". I have gone to control panel, screen resolution, and picked "detect", "identify", "apply", "ok", and restarted my computer to save my monitor and native resolution setting. The nvidia control panel lists my monitor as the primary display, but "sleep" does not seem to remember this. If i "shutdown" or "restart" my computer everything is fine.

External Raid 5 Gpt Volume Split In Half

External raid 5 gpt volume "split in half" after connecting to new windows 7 64-bit install. I have an ams venus t5j (ds-2350j) external disk enclosure; it is populated with 5 western digital 1 terabyte caviar green drives, model wd10eads. The venus device uses a control board with a jmicron jmb393 chipset, which is capable of creating raid volumes transparently to a connected host system. I used it to create a 4 terabyte raid 5 volume spanning all five drives.

I have been accessing it using a toshiba p105-s9337 laptop with a vantec pcmcia esata adapter card, which worked but was very inefficient. It was of course necessary to structure the volume as gpt because of its size. Therein was a challenge. My primary system had windows xp 32-bit installed, which doesn't support gpt disks. I experimented with ubuntu and another distro of linux, which does support gpt, but ran into problems getting them to transparently mount the raid 5 volume (it may have been partially my own inexperience, but it *should* have been easier).

As a result i decided i would have to install windows 7 on that system as well, so that i could access this raid volume from it. The system is based on an asus m2n sli deluxe motherboard, which has a built-in esata port driven by a jmicron jmb363 chipset (not port multiplier capable). Upon installing windows 7, installing the jmicron driver for the motherboard, and connecting the raid enclosure, windows shortly wanted to assign the "disk" a new disk id in order to use it.

I have routinely encountered this process in the past without issues when new disks are presented to a windows system, so i thought nothing of allowing it to do so. However, that did not as expected make the existing volume accessible. Upon investigating i discovered that disk manager believed there to be a 1. 67 tb unallocated space, and nothing more!At this point i was understandably anxious, since i had data on the volume.

I checked the volume by connecting it to the windows 7 (32-bit) laptop with which it had previously been working, and discovered a slightly different and more telling picture in disk management: there were two regions shown for the disk, one exactly 2tb and the other one 1. 67 tb, the latter clearly occupying the space in excess of 2tb. Both regions, again, were indicated as unallocated. In both systems, windows 7 also clearly presumed the volume to be mpt, since in both i saw the option to convert it to gpt. Which it already is!What has happened? 

Did simply allowing windows to write a disk id to this volume somehow corrupt it? How do i recover the previous single 3. 67 tb volume that was present? Must i simply instruct disk management to convert it to a gpt disk? Is doing so a non-destructive operation?

Black Screen When Using A Monitor

I am on a windows 7 starter net book. I just got a new monitor that has a lower resolution than my old one, it no longer works. When trying to use just the monitor the screen goes black. When trying to start windows in low resolution it starts it in low resolution on the netbook screen and not the monitor screen. When it is being sent out of both the monitor and the netbook the resolution is just what my netbook is. Is there a way that i can modify the resolution of the monitor because right now it is basically useless.

Monitor Not Displaying On All The Screen

I have just completed the windows 7 home premium upgrade (from windows vista home premium) on my dell studio xps 16 laptop. Everything has gone smoothly except now, when i connect my laptop to my dell sw2409w 24" monitor (via hdmi), i'm having a small issue. While windows does indeed detect the monitor type correctly and sets the resolution to 1920x1080, it doesn't fill up the entire screen. There is a 1-2" black space all the way around the outside.

I initially went into the monitor settings (using the buttons on the monitor) to auto-adjust the screen settings, but they're all disabled in hdmi mode. The monitor works perfectly with my other computer, and the screen on the laptop is fine too. I've updated the monitor driver, as well as the driver for my video card (ati mobility radeon hd 4670).

Any suggestions?

Website Screen Is Filling Monitor

Website screen is filling monitor - instead of having access @ top & bottom of screen to other websites/programs. I've lost the screen i usually have - where you have a top & bottom showing all the websites you have open, and on the bottom, outlook, word, etc. None of that is showing up, i just have one big view of my one and only current website page that i'm viewing. How do i get my other setting back where i can access everything?

Monitor Shut Off After Boot Screen

Can't believe i have to ask this problem again, previously my problem is my screen gets lower resolution when windows supposed to shows login screen (honestly it's remain unsolved) now my monitor suddenly just turn off when windows supposed to shows login screen (even though i can clearly hear the login screen's sound. )

It works fine after i press the power button to power up my laptop, the monitor showing bios & windows boot screen, but after that my monitor just turn off. Even when i'm performing clean boot (disable all startup items and disable other than microsoft services via msconfig) this problems still remains.

The only thing i could do it's just press the power button to shut down my laptop improperly then press the power button again to power up, then the problem's gone. Why this problem come on my 1st boot, suddenly gone in 2nd boot and sometime happens again when i'm trying to restart or power up again after shutting down my laptop from my 2nd boot?

Need to upgrade my graphic driver? Already have the newest version 
15. 12. 75. 4. 1930 (8. 15. 10. 1930) from downloadcenter. Intel.com

My device manager shows no problem/conflict at all. Don't have any second monitor plugged in my laptop ever since i've installed windows 7.

Xp Mode Fails To Show On Screen

I've been using xp mode on windows 7 and it has worked ok for some time. Suddenly i am not able to use xp mode. The program starts, and the virtual icon appears in the bottom task bar, and when i mouse over the icon a tiny window appears. When i click the window, the window just disappears, that is it doesn't come up on the full screen. Previously upon starting xp mode, it would automatically open as a full screen. I suspect that the problem may have been created when i attempted to shut down the computer (in windows 7 mode) before hibernating the xp mode.

I have tried windows restore, going back to a point before the time of this incidence, but without success. I have also re-downloaded xp mode over the top ot the existing version, but also without success. Using various options in control panel, i have come across a message that says "xp mode was closed with a user logged on", upon which i have hit the continue button. No success. Ny suggestions?

Blue Screen When Entering Sleep Mode

Bsod when entering sleep mode and with system restore. I recently started to have problems with my system crashing and bsod when it went into sleep mode. I updated all of the drivers and have attempted different fixes but i cannot resolve this issue. When i attempted to do a system restore, it, too, was unsuccessful and also crashed with bsod. There is no apparent malware or virus; however, windows doesn't recognize my avira antivirus program, which is running normally.

Black Screen Sleep Mode Issue After Win7 Upgrade

Since i have upgraded from vista to windows 7, i've been having problems with my computer. My main issue is that when i close my laptop (and it enters sleep mode), when i open it back up, its just a black screen. I click, and tap the power button, and nothing happens. The only way to get out is to hold in the power button. I never had this problem prior to the installation, and ive checked for viruses and everything came back clean. Is there some way to fix this/how do i revert to windows vista?

Crashes And Debugging - Black Screen After Login, Safe Mode Ok

My laptop seems to hang after the login screen, the screen either goes completely black or sometimes shows the desktop picture and an empty taskbar, but i am unable to do anything such as task manager. Leaving the system running for 10-15 minutes after trying ctrl-alt-del will bring up some error message, but i forget what it said, i'll try to get it again.

I can get into safe mode just fine, and ran the sf diagnostic tool from there, i have attached the files it created as requested. The laptop hung on me on shutdown before this issue started and after waiting for 30 minutes for it to try to shut down normally it wasn't responding so i had to power it down. I'm thinking that might've fudged something up but i'm unsure if there were any windows updates queued at the time or not. I'm really unsure what to do at this point, there aren't any system restore points, i didn't remember turning it off but i must have at some point.

How To Get Movie Maker Not To Split Movie Into Clips?

I use movie maker to compress videos or to put a split movie back together again. How do i get the movie maker not to split the movie into clips. This makes it so slow to load the movie, as if the combining/compression of 1-2 hrs was not already long enough. In win vista, the movie maker did not split into clips (or i have forgotten and can't figure out how to stop this). I have recently upgraded to win 7 and found that the live movie maker dosen't compress is the reason i am using the 2. 6 download.

Dual Monitor Problem - 2nd Monitor Detected Black

Ok, so i have a dell that was running vista and two monitors. When i upgraded to windows 7 pro i ran into the infamous black screen problem and fixed it. However, i only fixed my main monitor. When i open the display window, both of my monitors are detected but my secondary monitor shows a black screen and the monitor itself says there is no signal detected from my pc.

The strange thing is my pc thinks its working (i can drag a window from my working monitor towards the black one and it moves out of my working monitor into the black screen). I currently have both of them plugged in using a dvi to vga splitter and i have also updated the drivers by clicking the "update driver" button in the monitor properties window. Please help if you can!
