Can anyone tell me what it means when a computer monitor goes blank and shows DPS Mode? I pressed ctrl+alt+delete and the screen came back on. Is this a fluke or is it showing that something may be going wrong with the monitor?

Thanks!

Sounds like you monitor is losing it signal for some reason. Can you give us any more details?

Unfortunately, there isn't any other information. It happened once and I wanted to make sure I was on the right track in that there was a problem somewhere with the monitor. The screen just went blank while one of our employees was working and it showed the DPS Mode screen.

What would you suggest I do if it happens again? Should I check the connections or do you think there may be something wrong with the monitor itself?

By the way, I'm very happy to find your site. I'm just working into troubleshooting!

Thank you!

Probably the monitor itself. If its power supply is failing it will "black out" randomly, and probably occur more frequently.
