HP 1825 Flat Panel going into Sleep mode

I have a HP Flat Panel 1825.

During start up the monitor is fine... it shows the BIOS information and it says starting Windows XP.... During when it says starting up windows XP, the monitor will say "entering sleep mode" and then the monitor will turn off and the light will go amber....

I cannot get the monitor off this what ever i do...

Any suggestions at all ?

Thanks

You may have set the screen resolution and refresh rate beyond what your monitor can handle.  You can boot into safe mode and remove the video driver so that it will reset and ask you to reinstall it, and you will be able to change the resolution then.

Have you got the power settings incorrect (possibly BIOS too) sending it into sleep mode

Hello.

The problem was the cable on the monitor ! replace it with a standard vga cable and it worked all ok.. It was supplied with a digital end ( monitor end ) and a vga end ( computer end ). but replaced it with a VGA cable and all worked ok
