Dimension 2400 problems
My grandmother has a Dell Dimension 2400 with a celeron processor and 256mb ram.
The problem is, when you are using it the monitor will all of a sudden go into standby mode and the led on it is amber like it's getting no signal. When you move the mouse and press a key on the keyboard it doesn't come back on like it's in standby or whatever. The only way you can get out of it is to restart the pc by holding the power button till it turns off. The pc seems to be still on when this happens, it doesn't seem that the whole pc goes into standby mode, just the monitor. But the pc isn't frozen since you can actually restart it by holding the power button. This has just started recently as far as I know, I have no idea what the problem could be.
This happens when you are using it, not just when it is sitting.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
