    I have read other posts about this issue, but I don't believe my problem is my system. Everytime I boot up the computer monitor goes into sleep mode. Won't let me in safe mode or anything else. I connected the monitor to a whole other system and it does the same thing. So this would mean it has to be the monitor correct? And if so, what causes this kind of thing and can it be fixed? I tried getting into the monitor menu and it just goes down into sleep mode.Thanking everyone in advance for any help offered.

    If you have tried the monitor on a known working system, then you pretty much have your answer. The monitor has failed. With the price of new lcd monitors so cheap now, it does not make any sense to try and repair an old monitor. A new widescreen lcd is all of $99

    As for troubleshooting, I would check the pins on both the monitor and the cable. If you have another cable to swap in, then do so. Other than that, there is not really much else you can do. While it is possible to open a monitor and replace, a failed component, it is not really cost effective.
