Monitor or graphic problem?

Working on a Gateway ATXSTF MNT 700C, running XP and it has a Gateway FPD1810 monitor. And has a Radeon 9000 Series graphic card.

The sys tray has An ATI Catalyst control center. Only showing a pug and play monitor.

The monitor sometimes shows log-on screen and then goes into "power saving mode" which you can't get out of. Hard reboot.

If the monitor does stay on it almost always prompts to "Active Desktop Recovery screen". If I do that it screen goes to sleep have to hard reboot.

I have changed the connection from PC to monitor. No joy.

Also screen is freezing. Created a Sys restore and click on "Create" and screen froze. Ctrl, Alt, Delete will not work either.

*New message - VPU Recover has reset your graphics accelerator as it was no longer responding to graphics driver commands.

  1. Can I try an older graphics card to see if that makes a difference?
  2. Yep. That's a good idea. If it works fine then it is your current video card. If you get the same issue then it's the monitor.

    If your current video card has two DVI ports then try the other.
  3. I downloaded a new driver for the card so tomorrow I'll try another card if the driver doesn't do it.

    Thanks for the post.
