Let me give you the background. I have a Dell. It’s plugged into a monitor.
My mom has a Dell. It’s plugged into HER monitor. Yesterday, I needed to use her Dell PC where MY monitor is. I plugged HER Dell into MY monitor.
It worked fine.
Then I plugged MY Dell into MY monitor. I turned on MY Dell. It all worked fine. Then after the “Windows XP, Service Pack 2” window (with the little blue bar) loaded, MY monitor went to sleep. Like totally, conked out, ZZZ asleep. I hard rebooted MY PC, and the same thing happened. I got scared. I went to sleep. I got up. I tried some more. It didn’t work.
Any suggestions? Translation: DEAR FRIENDS, HELP ME!!!
