I have an emachines T2984 running windows XP Home Edition. I have an emachines eview 17f3 moniter.

When I place my computer into standby mode by pressing start; turn off computer; standby it goes into standy mode. Then when I move the mouse or press the button on the front of the machine to resume the computer from standby mode with the moniter turned off their is a blank black screen when I turn the moniter on.

If if place the computer into standby mode and leave the moniter on and then resume it, it resumes just fine.

To sum this up, if my moniter is powered on my computer resumes just fine,
If my moniter is turned off then my computer resumes as a blank black screen.

Can anybody help me,

Thanks for any help.
