Display Shuts Off When Pc Unplugged


I upgraded my asus 1005pe netbook from windows 7 starter to windows 7 enterprise. Everything worked fine. Did the online updates and now when i unplug the netbook, the display goes black. The computer does not shut down, the display just goes away and comes back when the unit is plugged back in. If i boot the computer in "safe" mode there is not a problem. The display stays on whether it is plugged in or not. Windows is the only program currently loaded on this machine. I have another asus 1005hab netbook with windows 7 enterprise loaded that this does not happen on.

Screen Saver Does Not Work - Display Never Shuts Off

The screen saver never works and the display never shuts off. How do i fix this? I have no idea how to make the screen saver work or get the display to automatically shut off. The preview for the screen saver doesn't even work. Everything i've read said this is typically because of a wireless mouse, but i do not have a wireless mouse or anything else attached to my laptop.

Does Win 7 Reinstall Automatically Printer Drivers If Unplugged ?

Does windows 7 automatically re-install an additional set of printer drivers if un-plugged, re-plugged "hot?" Recently installed windows 7 upgrade on our new office computer. Does windows 7 reinstall an additional copy of printer drivers if a printer is unplugged and re-plugged "hot?' seems that way, or am i imagining things.

Monitor Shuts Off

My computer monitor keeps shutting off on me. I have a dell inspiron b130 (i know it is kinda old) but i don't think its a hardware issue. It has started happening since i installed windows 7. At first i thought it was because my original product key didn't work, but i did the automated phone activation, and validated on the website, but it still shuts off. If i don't use my computer for awhile, it may stay on for a good 20 mins or so, but once it shuts off once, the time it stays on gets less and less. But, i just close the lid and open it back up and it works again. Any ideas as to what is going on?!?

The system reboots automatically and tells me windows shut down unexpectedly. I just upgraded to windows 7 yesterday. I was always able to backup with windows vista home premium 64-bit. I have tried to format the hard drive but the computer does the same thing, that is shuts down, and i get the same message. When i ran windows advisor it told me this drive was compatible with windows 7. What is my solution?

Computer Randomly Shuts Down

I checked the "similar questions" options and didn't none of the solutions seemed to apply to me, so here goes!:So i've had this computer for a while now (i would say about two years). It's a home-built made by a computer-savvy friend of mine and it's been fantastic. It still has high marks in everything but my hard drive. I'm some-what of a gamer, and it's been running games incredibly well. So i decided to move to taiwan to teach english. I really didn't want to miss out on pc gaming for a year(+), so i brought this sucker with me.

I get to my apartment - no 3-prong outlets!  Get a cheap 2-to-3 prong adapter, buy a fancy new screen, and voila, computer seems to be working!  It made the flight with me! (Yes, i had to check it, i had the airline people put tons of "fragile" stickers on it, but that was probably mistake number one, even though i had the original box, and even though i still tried to keep it from getting damaged by putting in other clothes to hopefully brace the shocks. Nyway, so i'm listening to some itunes, for about an hour and then suddenly. Shut down. Oh well, i'll just turn it on.

Itunes. Shut down. I plug in my first-video-gen ipod to update new songs and what not? Shut down. I also brought my laptop here with me so after several more instances of random shut down, i focus on my laptop, and say goodbye until i can bring it to a repair shop or something in the states or have someone with computer knowledge take a look at it. My laptop dies (it was old and had some liquid damage that i guess finally killed it). So now i have to use my desktop. Hey, it's been working ok, even updating my ipod with no problems!

Oh wait, unless i'm playing music at the same time as updating it. So i just don't do that anymore! My computer-savvy friend recommends that i get a diagnostic program to see why i'm having problems. I get this thing called sisoftware sandra lite 2010 from cnet after reading their enthusiastic review. I start up the program and it starts checking. Something. I can't remember, had to do with running calculations and the computer shuts off.

Almost immediately after the test starts. I download and install starcraft 2. Successfully!  "Wow it stayed on long enough to complete it without shutting down! Maybe it's better!"Try to play starcraft 2 - shuts down. Damn! What is wrong with my computer! I see that the little icon at the bottom right has a red x circle on it. I click on it for the first time. "Troubleshoot a problem with your computer. "Oh, might that fix the problem?"Your computer might be encountering a memory problem. " Hmm, hopefully because that's easy to fix, right? Just buy new memory!So i let the windows memory diagnostic test do it's thing.

It restarts the computer and "oo, that's a new thing" the test starts. 1%. 2%. Shut down!So. Is it my memory? If it was my memory wouldn't the test finish?Is it my cpu?  There is a big fan covering the cpu and it moved slightly after the flight.could that have affected the processor?Is it the fact that it's not technically grounded even though it's plugged into a seemingly ok power strip?Is it something else? The motherboard? The fact that it's 110v here and not the us standard 120v?I've also noticed that i can browse the internet ok, but if i try to full-screen a video, it shuts down! 

But if i don't full screen the video, there are no problems. It's also really hot and humid here, and i don't have air conditioning yet. Is it overheating? This case is a coolermaster cosmos, it's supposed to be pretty good at keeping everything cool what is going on!?

Monitor Shuts Off But Computer Remains On

Not sure if this is under the right topic, sorry. Well, the monitor will just shut off after booting up the pc. When i bootup in safe mode, the problem still occurs, although it took a longer time for it to turn off. Everything is still running though. This just started happening today. Right now, it seems to be okay, though it took a while before i was able to start it up normally. Several times before, when i tried to boot up, it refused to turn on. The graphics card fan would be on at its highest speed but won't become quiet again, as its supposed to. I had to turn off the main power at the back and wait awhile before i could start it up.

Could it be graphics related? Right now, using speedfan it says my gpu is at 57 c, which is hotter than normal. Also my cpu is at 40c, when its usually at 30 - 35. Usually my com is extremely cool, though i don't use liquid cooling and the room isn't air conditioned. So i don't understand why its suddenly like this.

Or is it a virus? Problem started when my sis tried to change her wallpaper. She said she just clicked on the photo and then the monitor shut off. Virus? Or coincidence? Need your help on this asap :) im using intel core i7 920, overclocked to 3. 2ghz. Asus rampage ii extreme mobo. Expertvision 8800gt sonic.coolermaster storm scout chassis. Windows 7 ultimate.

Floppy Drive Shuts Down Computer

I own a 2005 dell 8400 xp, it did not come with a floppy drive. When i purchased my designer i embroidery unit it required floppies. I ordered a small floppy drive and plugged it in a usb port. For the past couple of years this had worked fine. Now when i plug it in the computer acts as though something is attacking it and shuts down. I use frontier "peace of mind" for my troubleshooting and what not and they told me that when windows did an upgrade it must have down something to no longer recognize the floppy drive and suggested i call dell. Since my computer is no longer under warranted they wouldn't hep me. What can i do?

Computer Shuts Down After Awake From Sleep Mode

I just built a new computer with an asus p7p55d premium motherboard. When i try to wake the computer from sleep mode (i've tried both s1 and s3 sleep modes in the bios), the fans start to run and the motherboard leds turn on, but then the computer just powers off. I then have to turn the computer back on, wait for the bios to load, and then i get the "windows was shut down unexpectedly. Start windows normally or safe mode?" Prompt.

I've tried changing all of the settings i can think of in the windows 7 power options, as well as in the asus bios menu. A friend of mine said it might have to do with acpi settings, but it doesn't seem to change anything when i enable or disable them in the bios.could it possibly be a physical hardware problem? Does anyone have any ideas?

Display Problem With Display Driver When Multitasking

Just installed windows 7 home 64 bit a few weeks ago. I have been having a problem with my display driver. The screed flashes and turns black and then comes back on with a message in the lower right of the screen that reads "display driver stopped responding but has recovered". I have attempted to download and install a driver from amd web site, which is supposed to be the correct driver. When i attempt to install this driver my computer restarts because of a corrupted driver. Windows won't let me install the driver that is supposed to be the correct one. The graphics card is a ati hd3470. How do i fix?

Also i am missing other drivers for my fitjitsu lifebook a6220 like audio for hdmi output and many more. All was working fine with windows vista, now im missing several utility drivers i called fujitsu they say they are waiting on microsoft! If windows 7 was to be released all parties should have been sent a fix with all drivers not wait for the consumer to purchase windows 7 and have to deal with all the problems!

Power Options Page Doesn't Display "dim The Display" Option

I just installed windows 7 on my laptop and the power options page doesn't display a "dim the display" option, nor do the keyboard commands to dim the display do anything. I am running a lenovo g530 machine and there does not seem to be driver support for windows 7 on their support page. However i downloaded the mobile intel 45 chipset graphics driver for windows 7 and i downloaded the newest bios update; nether seemed to solve the problem.

Display Pictures

This pc is built from a components and running genuine (licensed) windows 7 (32bit) home premium. When browsing craig’s list classified ads, this computer would show the attached pictures on any ad, simply be hovering the cursor over the subject line and without opening the text. However, this feature abruptly quit and the pictures (jpeg) would not be displayed without clicking and opening the classified ad. I had assumed this was one of the windows gadgets that had by default been activated when installing windows 7 and then inadvertently turned off. Any suggestions how to turn this feature back on?

Display Distorted

Running w7 home prem; 32-bit ie8 computer; laptop. Dual core. 3gb memory. This laptop was upgraded doing an in-place upgrade from vista to w7. Since the upgrade to w7 occasionally my desktop becomes distorted. The desktop looks like vertical bars. I can correct the appearance by right click desktop. Select properties. Refresh. I have checked for a newer graphic card driver update. I have the latest driver installed. Any ideas why i am experiencing this issue since upgrading to w7? And what i can do to resolve.

Display Brightness

I cannot for the life of me figure out why my computer won't let me change the brightness of the display. When i go to the battery options as i used to with vista, there is no possible location to change the brightness (no there is no slider displayed below the power options). When i try function+f7/f8 nothing happens (in fact, i don't think my function key works at all since i updated to windows 7). A possible reason for this is that, when i updated my graphics driver in vista it crashed my computer.

Only after downloading windows 7 could i use my laptop again. Unfortunately my computer automatically updated to the new geforce graphics update after downloading windows 7 and i had to roll the computer back to get it to work again. Since then i have turned updates to manual, and have not updated the nvidia driver. Even if this is the problem, there's no reason i shouldn't be able to access my display brightness right? I can barely see the screen in a sunny room.

Problem With Display

So i just have gotten a new computer with windows 7. When i connect my pc to my samsung monitor (hdmi cable), everything is blurry, too sharp, and doesnt look good. The text is the most blurry thing. Also the edges of icons and some pictures are not smooth.

So i contacted samsung and they said "the problem is that windows 7 is having issues with certain video cards. " I tried using the same monitor with a computer that has windows vista on it and everything looks fine. They said contact microsoft and they may be able to help.

Cannot Display Webpage

It will not let me go to pogo.com. I have been visiting this site on my computer with no issue until tonight. The site is not down, my internet connection is fine. I have no virus or spyware (i did a scan). I can go to any other site i pull up. How do i fix and why is it doing it in the first place? This happens with other sites i frequently go to from time to time and after a few days it will go away. It only happens when i use internet explorer and if it keeps up i am dumping this stupid browser because it is the only browser to have ever given me trouble.

Display Is Out Of Range

I was messing around with my screen resolution because there was this site that was supposedly best viewed in a higher resolution! So i changed the resolution to a higher one and pressed execute or confirm, (i dont know the exact word in english) and the screen says "out of range" som i press escape and im back with my old resolution, but the drop down list is still set on the higher resolution, so i change it back to 1440x900 and instead of pressing confirm/execute before i press ok, i press ok by accident, and the resolution is still confirmed/executed in that higher res, so the screen goes black with a message "out of range" and now there is nothing i can do, i have tried to restart the computer and screen etc, but im lost, i cant get to my desktop!

Display Drivers Stopped

Display drivers have stopped and have been recovered.nvidia driver kernal 191. 07 has stopped and have been recovered. My display drivers keep stopping then recover whilst playing call of duty modern warfare 2 and also while i play combat arms. I have recently purchased a brand new pc that runs an i7-920 6gb ram a bfg gtx 285. I have tried every version of drivers from nvidia with no solution. My previous machine ran xp and combat arms ran fine on this. My friend is also having problems with call of duty and he has an ati card so don't think its related to drivers. He also runs windows 7.

Display Driver Crashes

I use a 6 months old xps dell 8000 with windows 7, 64 bit, with an nvidia geoforce gt220 video card. 1 or 2 times a day the monitor goes black and then restores with a message "display driver has stopped responding and recovered. Display driver nvidia windows kernel mode driver ?" This continues to happen for no reason, even though dell has replaced my video card 3 times. With dell customer service help i uninstalled and reinstalled the current drivers from the dell site previous drivers downloaded from the  nvidia site caused other problems which have been resolved. I would appreciate any guidance in resolving this issue which neither dell or nvidia want to claim as their fault.
