    The computer BIOS power management and Windows power management may be conflicting.
    This is my best guess.
    Have you made any changes to the computer system itself lately, or flashed the BIOS?

    Does this monitor behave properly on another computer?

    This would let us know if it is the monitor or the computer itself.
    Nope I have not made any changes to the computer system and not sure what "flashed the bios" means. I haven't tried a different monitor on this computer, or this monitor on another computer. When I get a chance to do that, I'll give it a try.

    Thanks Josdin

    If the old monitor has the same problem on a different computer, then your only recourse will be to get a new monitor.
    Sorry!

    Re: Monitor problem

    Yup the old monitor did the exact same thing on a different computer. How do you know whether a monitor will work on the video card in your monitor or is there even a way to tell before you plug it in?

    Thanks Josdin

    Make sure you bring your computer type as well as operating system version/type with you when you buy the monitor.
    The guys that sell you the monitor will make sure you get one that works.
    If they can't then go someplace else were they can.

    Will that work for almost any type of computer? I have an HP and Windows XP service pack 2, I believe. Any place I can check out if I have the original pack or #2?

    Thanks Josdin

    I think he means you're supposed to stand in front of your computer, drop your pants & wiggle your penis at it.

    What you need to ensure is that you have the correct driver in your operating system. Nowadays that isn't as big of a deal because Microsoft, in all its infinite wisdom has gone to the next step and made sure that they provide adequate driver support for almost all makes and models.

    Again, just tell the guy you have Windows XP and what type (Model) of computer and he/she should be able to tell you that the monitor will work.

    Shouldn't be that big of a deal.
