Vista x64 - slow recovery from sleep mode - flashing monitor light

Q: Vista x64 - slow recovery from sleep mode - flashing monitor light

Every time I try to recover from sleep mode, the monitor light flashes, but nothing appears on the display. I haven't had the patience to wait for it recover (if ever), but have rebooted to Safe Mode, then rebooted again. From Google search results, it's clear that this is a common problem in Vista x64 with a variety of systems running dual monitor displays. (I have a Matrox M9120 PCIe x16 graphics card.) See:

vista 64 sleep mode monitor flashes - Google Search

Is there is a solution, other than what I have done -- change the "Put computer to sleep" option to Never? I wonder whether the same bug occurs in the Windows 7 x64 beta.

I have a lenovo twist running windows 8.1. This computer will be running run fine but will freeze then come right back. It also will not wake up from a sleep at times and the only way to get it back on is to cut all power or hold down the power button until it shuts off. It just started not being able to do some of the windows updates.

A:Will not wake from a sleep power light just keeps flashing

When did you install 8.1? The reports show that your OS was installed a month before it was released.

No further info in the reports, and the last BSOD was from Nov 2013.
Please do the following:
- open Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc from the "Run" dialog))
- expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
- right click on Administrative Events
- select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
- save the file as Admin.evtx
- zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
- upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).

Hey folks,

First of all hello everybody, great to be on board on this great forum!

I am a proud owner of Windows 7 Professional 64bit and a completely new PC since 2 Weeks.

Unfortunately I am facing some issues that I could not solve even through excessive searching on the web/forum.

My Issues:
1. My system is very slow when I am copying/moving data on my hdd. I.e. when I am copying data and watching a Movie at the same time, it is not possible without sudden pauses in playback. Another example: When I am copying/moving data on my hdd, I can not open new programs(even small ones!), and even working with already open programs(also even on tasks that do not require any or alot data from hdd) is a real pain. Now all of this was possible with a 10 year old pc with Windows XP Professional 32bit(!), so I am quite a bit dissapointed and have a hard time accepting anything along the lines "don't do more then one thing at once" etc...

2. It is also very slow recovering from sleep mode. Symptoms: Screen activates, I see the normal Desktop and the previously opened windows but I am unable to use any software for at least 30sec-2minutes, it's like windows has a hard time recovering data from the swap disk.

Now these two issues could most likely be related, right? One thing I did was to enable raid on my mainboard to be able to install intel smart response technology drivers prior to installing windows 7, so I could use a ssd later on to boost my hdd speed. My guess is t... Read more

i have this problem it just start like yesterday and when i turn on my computer it sounds like its booting up like normal except the monitor will just blink with a green light and i checked to make sure the cords and everything was good and it still dont work.
 

A:green flashing light on monitor

A light blinking at a rate of at least once every second often seems to be made to indicate there is a problem, as in the makers of the device that has the light did it to show that there is a problem, so at least the monitor "knows" there is a problem...So maybe you should read the manual or contact the manufacturer and see what the blinking light means.
First things I would try are to plug it into a different PC, trying a different data cable, a different power cord, and a different outlet. If all of the above fails (including reading the manual or contacting the mfr.), it is probably a part inside the monitor not working correctly. Make sure all connections are secure, and not crooked or anything, including the video card's (if there is one) connection the the motherboard's slot, any internal power cord to the video card, etc.

Assuming that the monitor in question is a LCD ?
You could hold a torch up close to the screen and if you can see the normal screen (the one that's there normally there when your computer boots) then the problem is the back-light for the screen -may be repairable.

However you might also find on the monitor manufacturers site a list of "Blink-codes" which will be interpretative in much the same way as Morse Code. And this may have implications to what is actually wrong internally with the unit.

Hi My F1904 monitor seems to have a fault. When I power it on the power switch flashes amber and I get no display. Any suggestions? There does not seem to be any mention of this in the documentation. Many Thanks 

A:F1904 Monitor flashing amber power light

amber usually means sleep mode. flashing can mean different things. Disconnect the video cable, turn it off, pull the power plug, wait 10 seconds, plug it in and turn it on. Press the OSD buttons to see if you can bring up the on screen display. If that comes, up try connecting it again. Hopefully the PC is not sending out a bad video signal.

I have HP Desktop Tower Pavilion with windows 10, I had two HP S2031 monitors in dual mode, worked fine. One of them died, I got a good deal on a larger HP 27er monitor.  I hooked it up, they were both working fine ... it was using a default monitor
setting ... and then yesterday the computer downloaded some updates, and in doing so, it downloaded the driver for the HP 27er and installed.  The next thing that happens is the older HP S2031 starts to go dark ... like it is going into sleep mode, and
then it is totally black.  On reboot, it starts up with both monitors working, but within seconds of reboot the HP S2031 goes black again. The HP S2031's buttons do nothing, other than the power button, which turns it off and on, but that is it.  
I have done all troubleshooting, I did not even have them set up to sleep, all settings are at NEVER.  In coming here, I have done all the fixes I can find for similar  that are posted for similar issues, the Windows Key + W... nothing.

Hello,

I just had my new build finished and it's been running for a day. Well, I'm new to windows 7 and I hadn't turned off sleep mode yet. Well, I stepped away for a few and came back to find that my pc was in sleep mode. I reeactivated the pc and everything kicked back on except for the blue power led on the front panel of my HAF 932 case. The hd led was working just fine but the power light has not turned on since. At first I thought that the LED went bad, but I realized that this only happened after sleep mode. It was fine just before sleep mode. I since then turned off sleep mode but no power led. After reading a bit about Windows 7 I have realized that there is a possibility that sleep mode caused this. What do you guys think? If Windows 7 is the reason than how can I fix it?


Thanks a bunch

For a couple of years I've my Yoga 900 laptop with 2(!) Dell P2415Q 4K monitors using a USB-C to MiniDP dongle. I was shocked the laptop could handle both of these monitors (combined resolution 7680x2160!), but it did just fine. I recently sold them and am now using the laptop with a single Dell U3417W widescreen monitor (resolution 3440x1440). For some reason, even though the new monitor has FAR fewer pixels that the two 4K monitors did combined, the laptop will now frequently get into a state (often after a sleep/wake cycle) where the screen starts blanking out every 3-5 seconds. Usually I can't get it to stop until I do a shutdown and cold restart of the laptop. I have the latest display driver available on Lenovo.com for this laptop. What's going on here, and how can I fix it? Thanks in advance for any help!

The two messages "ME in Recovery Mode" and "ME FW Update Failed, Please Try Again" flash for a few seconds during startup. This is a T420 with Windows 10 64-bit. As far as I know, I did not change or update the BIOS or anything else prior to this. However, at the same time these messages started appearing, my laptop would not start up properly, it would sometimes black screen and not start at all. I thought my laptop had a virus or the primary SSD (C: drive) was going bad. I read that I should check that the BIOS version was up-to-date, it was. I installed and ran an Intel updater, but that didn't seem to do anything as far as I could tell. I also read to unplug the laptop, remove the battery, and hold power down for 5 seconds, then restart. So, I did that as well. Not sure if any of that helped, but, the next day everything seemed normal, as far as starting up, but I'm still getting the "ME in Recovery Mode" and "ME FW Update Failed...." messages at startup. It's been about a week now.   I was thinking of just reinstalling Windows, as I want to repartition my C: drive anyways. But, I'm wondering if reinstalling Windows is even likely to fix this problem, if the problem is BIOS related? Thanks for any help.

I’m working on my daughter’s MSI A6200 laptop running Windows 7, Home Premium, 64 bit.

The computer was freezing up from time to time and then stopped working. It hung up when I tried to reboot. I went to safe mode, used msconfig to turn off all system services and start-up programs, rebooted but no change. Rebooted in safe mode with networking but all network connections are gone, the wireless adapter seems disabled but it does show in Device Manager. Interestingly, the “sleep” light on the laptop is lit. I opened control panel and clicked on Power options but nothing happens.

I downloaded Norton’s emergency bootable recovery tool and booted via a USB drive. I scanned the laptop and it found a virus but I’m embarrassed to say I didn’t write down what it was (I foolishly thought I was done). I ran it again and it came up with nothing. There may be a log somewhere but I couldn’t find it this morning. I have a feeling the virus did some damage before I removed it.

Can you help me repair my laptop? Get my wireless adapter back and resolve the power/sleep mode issue?

Thanks very much!
Steve

A:Laptop only boots in safe mode, no wireless, sleep light lit, no power options

That really, really sounds like a motherboard problem.

To eliminate hardware as a possibility I'd back up the data and reinstall to see if it fixes it or not.

Alternatively, you could try booting it off of a linux live distro CD to see if it keeps up its shenanigans.

People write bugs to do strange things though. Is the sleep light lit prior to windows actually booting, or only when in windows?

You keep saying that the "monitor would not come out of sleep mode" however can I suggest that the problem is the computer is failing to boot up?

Can you confirm that the computer is / is not booting?

Easiest test is to see if the caps lock light toggles on and off with the caps key. If so, the computer probably has booted. If not, it has not actually booted at all.

I've searched online about this issue and can't seem to find one exactly like mine. We bought a new desktop a couple of months ago, Windows 7 home Premium is our operating system. We previously had Vista. We are using a 22 inch LCD Westinghouse moniter. The issue I am having is my moniter will go into sleep mode, especailly while I am in the middle of doing something, Be it playing a game, surfing the web or typing an email. I have disabled sleep and power saver mode and have turned off my screen saver as some people have suggested on other forums I have looked at. It still does it. I have gone onto Microsoft.com and the only help there is to tell you how to turn sleep mode off. Mine already is! What usually happens when it does this, I'll move my mouse and it'll pop right back on. Sometimes however, it will not come back on unless I hold down the power button on the moniter. I have updated all of my drivers and the only conclusion I can come to is this is a Windows 7 glitch and they have yet to fix it. Can anyone tell me whatelse I can possibly do to fix this? Some days it barely does it and others, like today so far, it has done it 3 times within an hour. Very annoying to say the least....

Almost sounds like what I had cept not as bad. My monitors would go into sleep mode on a brand new comp with my radeon 4750. cept it happened either at power on or whenever it felt like it in windows xp. they would not however come back unless i forced the computer off and even that didn't guarantee it. moreover, no one seemed to know about this cuz no one repsonded to me on this forum.

my problem was solved by upgrading windows xp to windows 7. in ur case i can't really suggest that. are you running 32 or 64bit win 7? what's your power supply unit? could also try running a registry edit program to fix registry errors in windows. also, post the specs of your computer like i did below.

Hello guys,
Around last week I noticed when I moved the mouse to wake up the monitor, it would show the desktop then go black. I would turn the monitor on and off a few times, and the monitor would come back on without problems for the rest of the day. However, today the trick did not work, and the monitor's green light went back to an orange/red saying there was no input.
I switched monitors hoping that the monitor was the problem, but the second monitor immediately stated that was there no input and also went into sleep mode.
At that point, I switched my 9800 gt with another pc's 8600 gt, just to see if it was the video card. Needless to say, neither video card gave an input to westinghouse monitor (main one). I then switched the 8600 gt back into it's original pc and the sony monitor works fine.

I know this is a lot of information, maybe needless as well, but I'm kind of confused now. The computer having the problem doesn't shut down or overheat or anything, but it's just not sending any input towards the monitor. I'm sorry if my information is jumbled up and confusing, but I, myself, am confused at the moment. Any help would be much appreciated, thank you.

I have the monitor set to never go into sleep mode in power options, but it still shuts off after about 10 minutes. I would appreciate any help. Thank you.

Welcome

Check your settings again. It may not be sleep mode, it can be the monitor turning off.

Make sure that your monitor is not set to turn off. In addition, make sure that this is not a feature of your particular computer.

Hi,
We've been having this problem on and off for a few weeks now. The tower turns on but is very quiet and the monitor tells us that is is in D-Sub power save mode and will not come on. We tried putting the computer in safe mode by pushing the power button and tapping F8 at the same time. We have also tried shutting everything down and unplugging. No luck.

A few days ago I noticed my monitor was not going to sleep. It seems to have started after I tried Windows Live Mesh or at least that's when I noticed it anyway. The only other software or drivers I've installed since I last knew it was going into sleep mode is the Microsoft IntelliType Pro software. I've unistalled Live Mesh and the IntelliType software and still no go. I've even tried system restore to a point a day before I knew the monitor was going into sleep mode.

System is now and always has been malware free. I installed MSE, Malware bytes and even SuperAntiSpyware to be 100% sure. The only programs running are Live Messenger, Yahoo Messenger and I do use Media Center with my tv tuner. They have always been running and never stoped the monitor from going to sleep before.
