monitor question

Postby cncnb on Sat Dec 18, 2004 1:50 pm

What would cause a monitor to not come out of stand-by? I have tried hooking up another tower to it but it does the same thing.
It is a HP Pavillion mx75 that is not quite 2 yrs old and has just started this in the past 2 weeks. When you hit the space bar it tries to come out and the power button will turn green but after a couple of seconds goes back into standby. I have ended up forcing the computer to reboot to get it back up but I hate to do this.
Is there a way to keep it from going into standby at all? I want to get another monitor but that will have to wait until the first of the year.

HP Monitors are Junk!

You are very lucky you got Two Years from your MX 75; I got 15 months and the CRT tube blew. I bought the extended warranty from Best Buy and they replaced it with a View Sonic. The Tech's said "HP monitors were junk," and they were willing to give me another HP, MX 75, but they recommended I take the View Sonic, so I wouldn't have to come back. At Best Buy they don't even repair CRT monitots, they throw them in the trash! [-X
