Booting up with hmdi monitor, windows activates but does not display on monitor.
Result is blank screen with repetitive pings. I suspect defective cable, and checking for secure connectors to both monitor and computer there is still a blank screen an d repetitive pinging sound and eventually after some time later the windows login screen is displayed.
Hybernation was disabled, but when leaving computer on for extended periods it still indicates the computer is hybernating. Screen saver is activated the computer still slips into hybernation. Running HP Pavilion Elite e9240f. Could this be a monitor problem, syncMaster 2220wm -- or a cable problem? This computer was doing the same before installing a new boot drive and continues to do it now. The reason I am inclined to think that the problem is a monitor problem or cable problem is that the sounds of activating windows log in screen is also heard when monitor displays black screen. The hdmi cable connecion on borh ends are locked and secure. Plan is to replace cable first, next to test on a different monitor. Cannot think of anything else to do. I am curious if anyone else has encountered this problem..especially with the repetitive pings.
