I have an HP Pavilion computer that I just bought about 6 months ago, recently the monitor has not been going into power saving sleep mode, I have NVidia Graphics built on the motherboard and when I reinstall the drivers the monitor will start the sleep cycle and use the screen saver will come up but after a few weeks I'm back to the same thing. No screensaver and no sleep mode on the monitor, this is really driving me crazy java script:add_smilie(":flowers:","smid_48") because I have to shut the monitor off when I am done with the computer to save energy and monitor use. Has anyone been able to solve this or should I just start looking for another graphics card. My Domestic partner suggested I get an ATI Radeon card like he has because it has not given him any trouble.

I have a HP Pavilion a6703w with 5GB of RAM Vista 64-bit, a 320 GB hard drive and a hpw2007 monitor.

Should I update the monitor driver, the NVidia Driver (Who I have heard alot of people complain about) or replace the on board graphics with a PCI-E x16 Card? java script:add_smilie(":thumbsup:","smid_80")

Any help would be greatly appriciated. Thanks

How are you Replacing the video driver
Is this the driver you used?

I was using the drivers from the Nvidia website but I'll try this one and see if it works any better.
