So, MSI's tech support is pretty much useless, unless I wanted to, I kid you not, fill out a form specifying every piece of hardware in my computer, which I really don't know because unfortunately I'm on a manufacturer's computer (*sob* I know. The shame).
Anyway, I've got an MSI ATI Radeon HD 4550, and every time my computer goes to sleep/shuts off the monitor, there's no way to wake it up except by pressing control-alt-delete, except in the case when it's at the login screen, in which case I have to correctly login to get it to wake up.
Any ideas on how to resolve this? Thanks.
This is the only problem I've ever had with ATI. Kind of saddening.
The screen is BLACK. I have multiple accounts on my computer. This can make it a tad difficult to figure out how to CORRECTLY login when I can't see what account is selected nor if I've typed an extra character or two.
Moving the mouse does not wake up the computer. THAT is the issue.
I had the exact same problem with my build. Intel i5 750 processor on Gigabyte P55A-UD4P motherboard, OCZ Vertex 60 GB SSD boot drive, XFX Radeon 5870 xxx version, Windows 7 Professional. Even powering down and restarting resulted in a black screen. (I thought maybe something had died). Trying powering down, unplugging the power supply, reconnecting and rebooting fixed it. I don't know the reason for the problem, but setting my power options to have the computer never enter sleep mode prevents the problem.
