LG is a manufacturer of assorted electronics, including LCD monitors such as the M2762D. As monitors can consume a substantial amount of power when they are turned on, the default setting on your Windows 7 computer is to turn off the monitor after a certain period of inactivity. While this practice is helpful for reducing energy consumption, you may find it inconvenient when you are in the middle of working on a project. Fortunately you can configure your computer so that your M2762D monitor does not enter power-saving mode.

Tips and warnings

  • If your monitor is not waking from power-saving mode when you turn on the computer, there could be a problem with the monitor, the monitor cable or the computer. Take a different monitor from another computer in your home, or borrow one from a friend, and see if that monitor will work with your computer. If the new monitor also doesn't work, then there may be a hardware or operating system preventing your computer from booting up. Consult a computer repair specialist to determine the cause of the problem.
