    My monitor is not coming out of sleep mode. I have hard booted and reconnected all cables. When clicking on source display comes up for 5 secs stating DVI Active

    I disconnected DVI and connected VGA cable. Same happens. Says its active but displays for only 5secs or so. Keyboard inputs don't activate display

    Now I have both cables connected and same thing happens stating VGA and DVI Active but display goes blank after 5secs

    It's an HP widescreen monitor
    What is happening?

    First you need to do a RAM cleanup remove your RAM and insert again and see what happens.

    Could be the monitor is actually faulty or the computer isn't providing a signal.

    You can test the monitor on another device or computer to confirm whether it is actually functional. And/or test a different monitor on that computer to see if the computer is working.
