Monitor Problem

Posted on 1999-01-19
Last Modified: 2013-12-28
I installed Windows 98)(clean install) and ever since my monitor turns off after about 30 minutes use, it doesn't lose power but it just loses picture. If I turn it off then on it works for awhile. I checked the connections and that isn't the problem. If you know please help!

This sounds like power managment settings.
Click Start-> Settings-> Control Panel-> Power to disable it or make whatever corrections desired.
Let me know if you need more.

When you turn on the computer, there is usually a key pressed to be used for entering the system setup.  It varies from on brand to the next but if it isn't displayed on-screen, try Del, F1, F2 Ctrl-Alt-Esc.
Once in the setup program, you select from a menu used for configuring the way your system uses it's installed components.
Find the setting for Power management and simply disable it.
Save & exit the program.
Hopefully this will correct the monitor shutdown problem.
Let me know what you find.
