Recording Digital TV progs is when it usually happens...monitor goes into PSMode and the only way I can get it out is by crashing the computer and restarting. Obviously this is not what I want to do while recording!!!
Computers clean...Mobo and peripherals are all in good working order.....and clean. All cables the same...none loose or *%*$ed.Cmos battery is new, also took out and gave it a clean just in case..but no go. Power Saving Option on Monitor is greyed out so I can't get to it to change its settings.
Gone into Bios/Cmos and there is no settings there to alter to fix this problem. Definitly linked to the Monitor itself and not the computer. Maybe OS/Monitor related but as I say, I am as yet unable to find the source.
Any more ideas would be welcome.
I agree to badcarma. you must Replace CMOS battery
Did you check your "NEW" CMOS battery if it's working? Try the steps below to check your CMOS battery
1. If your PC is currently on, shut it down.
2. Remove (don't replace) cmos battery.
3. Start your PC.
4. If in any case your monitor will lead to a poor visualization of logo startup just restart your system.
5. Set date and time of your system (though this would not save if you restart again since you remove your cmos battery.)
After Saving & exiting on cmos setup, your system must be working fine without a CMOS battery. If it does, then probably you have to replace your CMOS battery with a new "WORKING" one.
Hope i've helped. If this worked, please post your reply.
