  1. My samsung syncmaster 152v keeps sleeping and I have tried everything I can think of 2 cure it, but after downloading new drivers for both the monitor and my nvidia geforce fx 5200 graphics card, nothing has worked.

    Please help me with some ideas what to do next

    thanks

    Check your power management settings in Windows. Assuming you're using XP...


    Start>Control Panel>Power Options

    There you will be able to set the various power options for the monitor and hard drive. Make sure your monitor is set to "NEVER", and then you shouldn't have this problem anymore. Let us know if this helps or not.

    Did you solve this?

    Hi,

    I read your post about your Samsung monitor sleeping. I've got the same thing . Did you ever solve this?

    Regards,
