My computer monitor won't wake up from sleep mode. The power light flashed blue like it is asleep but when I hit the keyboard or click the mouse nothing happens. I even restarted the computer and tested to see if the wires were bed or loose and that didn't help either. I switched out the monitor and the new one works on the computer so it seems it is something with the monitor. Any suggestions?

All the best Brett :)

No guarantee, but for giggles I would try unplugging the monitor (from power) for a few minutes then plug it back in and see what happens. I have seen this correct that behavior.

If that resolves the issue then you might want to look at how the power saving and sleep settings are configured on the PC, or just remember that unplugging it made a difference.

One other thought would be: Does the monitor have an A/B source switch on it and is the correct source selected?

Good luck.
