CPU: AM2 5200
Mobo: M2N32-SLI Deluxe wifi edition
O/S: Vista 32 home premium
GPU: 2 X EVGA 7600GT 256mb (sli mode)
Monitor: Viewsonic 27" LCD T.V. utilizing DVI port from primary slot vga

the unsigned drivers
vista os zip file from viewsonic's website)
All drivers are current/up-to-date.
PROBLEM: Put computer into sleep mode either through start menu or pushing
pwr button (i've set requirement for pwr button < 4sec = sleep mode). I go
to work. 8 hrs later, I come back, click mouse or push a key on keyboard.
Electronically, computer wakes up, however, display/monitor stays on standby.
I'll press a button on the Viewsonic's remote control to get the bugger out
of standby mode, but it immediately goes back to a blank screen/standby,
which tells me, computer isn't "waking" up the lcd like it should OR
basically, the two ain't communicating.
So, I'll 1)Press the reset switch (but sometimes this is a hit or miss, b/c
upon reboot the LCD may or may not come out of standby and start displaying,
which again means the two ain't communicating), and if it does work, I'll get
asked to start in safe mode, last known config, etc. OR 2)I'll decide to
hold down pwr button, shut computer off, then power on, upon which I'll get
asked to start in safe mode, last known config, etc. This has been happening
before and after sli mode, so I know it's not that. This has been a pain in
the rear, even with XP, so I know it's not just another new bug with vista.
But now I'm finally fed up with it, and am querying about it.
Q: How do I fix?
I've tried messing with bios plug n play options, windows "sleep" mode
options, removing and re-plugging DVI cable while computer just sits there
on, the t.v.'s menu options, etc, but to no avail, the display won't come up.
So, I've just set settings to never turn off hard drive or monitor, or enter
sleep mode, and leave screensaver on, so that I don't have to deal with my
blank screen issue.
In advance, I'd like to thank all those that provide T/S tips, I'm
desperate. It'd be nice to come home, and after the comp has been asleep a
while, just click mouse button and everything comes up normally, everytime,
all the time. (This may also help you help me troubleshoot, USB Razer
diamondback mouse & USB generic dynex keyboard, AND this problem doesn't seem
to occur when the comp is in sleep mode for a short while, say less than 1 or
Lastly, apologize for the novel read, I'm comp. literate and am capable of
entering the registry to tweak this or that, have exhausted the forums/faq
sections, and will do whatever I gotta do to get this unique problem solved
once and for all.
