My co-worker has a problem with his monitor at home. He will be using his computer, and after some random time (1-2hrs) the monitor will just go on standby/suspend mode, with the orange light on. Turning the monitor off, then on, does nothing. The only thing that works is turning off the computer for about 30 minutes, and then powering it back up. He went into the power management area under the “Settings” tab to change the monitor settings to “never go into standby” for the computer and the monitor, and nothing has changed. He has Windows98, the computer is a Compaq Presario 5284.
The monitor is a MV-900 (Compaq), and I already ribbed him for that. He says he borrowed a friend’s monitor, and didn’t have this problem at all.
So, any ideas how to fix this?
