View Full Version : Gateway Monitor goes unexpectly to standby mode

I have a Gatewy VX700 17'' CRT monitor. When I connected it to my PC it run for few minuites and goes to the standby mode. It does not come to the operation mode till I turn it off and on again. Then, this routine is repeated in shorter intervals.
This problem does not happen with my old monitor. I tried to change the power management settings in the Windows XP with no way. Does any one have a solution.

maybe your refresh rate is too high, but it sounds like the monitor is faulty

I assume this is with no activity by you or the computer. Does it come up if you move the mouse? If so there might be a BIOS setting which has accidentally been set, though if it's only this monitor which this happens to, that's unlikely.

Is it a proper standby mode? If the power light flashes, that usually indicates a monitor fault.

It goes to standby even during my active work.

It does not come up when moving the mouse or striking a key. The only case it comes up with is turning it off and on again.

From where can I change the frame rate?
