|I have recently had to reformat my hard drive after a power surge, and now my monitor will randomly go into standby mode even when I'm using programs. Jiggling the mouse will bring it back, so I wasn't all too concerned. Then yesterday while playing an MMO it did this about 6-7 times within 5 or so hours! (Previously it would only happen about once a week.)|
Both the computer and monitor are 4.5 years old, and I never updated the graphics card from the one that was embedded into the motherboard. The monitor is set to never go on standby, but is set to go to screensaver after 5 mins. I always turn off the monitor when I leave the computer as well. After reinstalling the OS I forgot to install the software that came with the monitor. It works fine as a plug-and-play, excepting this problem of course. Would having the correct drivers fix the problem?
