"monitor going to sleep" on startup

Hi, any advice on this issue would be greatly appreciated. the other day i booted up my slimline s3500t. the monitor showed a box indicating no input for dvi and vga, which then changed to "monitor going to sleep". i turned it off and reseated everything. it fired up fine, and started up ok again for the past couple days. today however it's doing it again, this time with reseating having no effect.

 

I tried hooking it up to my tv via hdmi, and that also indicated no input. that leads me to believe that the monitor and/or the cable are not the culprit. I'm thinking either the video card, power supply, or motherboard. unfortunately i dont have any spare parts with which to test. the fans seem to be working ok. i dont think its the power settings since this happens straight off the boot. i can hear sound through the speakers as it goes into windows. i checked for loose cables and everything seems secure.

 

any thoughts as to the most likely cause, before i start replacing stuff one by one?

 

thanks for your time!

Re: "monitor going to sleep" on startup

First, try reinstalling or updating the drivers for your monitor.  See if that makes a difference.  If not, do the same for your video card.

 

Let us know what you find out.

I suggest that you start by removing both memory modules and installing only one in the slot nearest to the CPU. Now try a bootup to Windows. If that produces no improvement thentry the other memory module.

 

There is no video card. Your PC uses an integrated chip solution.

 

 

Please post your results.

Best regards,
erico

On the left side of your screen click "Change when the computer sleeps"

Re: "monitor going to sleep" on startup

You may have figured this out by now, but in case you haven't and for the benefit of anyone who finds this in the future.  This is a common problem with several HP monitors.  Mine's a vp17.   The best information about the problem is here:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?lc=en&cc=us&docname=c00061509&dlc=en&product=459838

Follow that trouble shooting process if you want to give it a chance, but likely you will discover that none of these solutions work and the final suggestion is to contact HP for a replacement.  If you're like me and you are not the original purchaser of the monitor or it's a little old, you're screwed.  There is no solution anywhere for this.  My monitor has been dead for 4 months, and I've tried everything short of taking it apart.  And I only stopped there because I can't figure out how to take the thing apart.
