I have a dell 22' WFTP monitor, and today I had a circuit breaker overload which resulted in my system shutting down illegally, But when I restarted there was no error? It just booted normally, But now my monitor shuts down, like I have changed the power settings options to enable shutdown (which are set to never shut down) In the power options properties, power schemes, there is nothing to select from?? and further on down the window it has "turn off monitor" and "turn off hard disks" but they are greyed out now and I don't have the option to select anything anymore!!!! I assume the default setting is to shut down the monitor after X amount of time but I can't change it now? can anyone please help??/

Do you have a XP CD? If so, run SFC scannow

I tried to run SFC but it has not resolved the issue, The panels are still greyed out, I think the timer must be set to default at 20min? It had me worried the first time, If I use restore, I lose my subscription to my antivirus? Thanks for your help! :thumbsup:
