How to Fix a Computer That Keeps Going into Sleep Mode?

by sun89 / August 9, 2011 10:57 PM PDT

My Monitor keeps going into sleep mode after using for 5-10mins. But the CPU is still running. I can still hear my songs playing from the com. So is there any way i can fix this?

I would go to your graphics card mfg's website and install the latest driver updates before you replace any hardware.

It appears that no make or model is noted and that you don't do your own repairs. Remember I can't repair over the internet either. Just supply ideas about what a member could do.

make (Dell, HP, Compaq, Acer, etc.) and model of the computer so we can't check to see if this is a systemic problem or not.

It was suggested you clean the computer and update the video drivers but you don't seem to have done that.

Have you gone into the Control Panel and selected the Power Options applet and set the power scheme to NEVER shut down the monitor?
