Computer wakes up, monitors do not?

Recommended Posts

 I was wondering if anyone on this form has encountered this:


Out of the blue my two monitors will not wake up/turn back on when I wake up my computer.

I need to turn off my computer on the tower and then turn it back on to get the monitors back on...

I've looked online and tried everything...


is it something in the BIOS?



Here are my specs:

Intel i7 3.50 GHZ


2X Nvidia Geforce 1080ti cards

Mother board ASRock FATAL1TY X99X Killer


EVGA SuperNOVA 1000 P2 1000 W 80+


Any suggestions?


Thank you in advance!!

Are you using sleep/hibernation mode?

I suggest that you don't use that, it can make problems like yours.

Every pc setup these days has ssd/nvme disks, boot time is 10-20sec, so no need for sleep modes and similar.

  • Yeah, I right click the window icon and choose sleep in the shut down or sign out section.

    I have been doing this since I built this PC, then about a week ago the monitors stopped waking up.


    Any other suggestions?

    If it worked before it has to work now. Did you update graphics card drivers in meantime? Was system updated? Changed cables? How are your displays connected? Do you have display switch maybe? Please provide as much info as possible how things are setup...

    In Windows settings check your power settings and what happens to the display / monitors. I never put my my computer into sleep mode. It boots up in a matter of seconds so isn't an issue.
