Aurora R7 Desktop
Dell Monitor P2418HT
Plugged in Via: HDMI
After auto maintenance, the monitor says (no HD cable connected) and goes into energy savings mode.
I have already tried messing with the input features on the monitor, to no avail. Rebooting does nothing. The only thing that works is turning off the monitor and the computer at the power source (unplugging from the wall), waiting at least 1 full minute, and re-starting the power. Everything else fails.
Try turning everything off, unplugging the monitor power cable too, and holding the power button on the monitor for 10 seconds, then retrying.
You can also run the built in diagnostics to check for errors while its disconnected from the PC.
Yes -- that works for a 1 time fix... BUT... this has to be done constantly, which is the problem. I should not have to do ANYTHING each time the system goes through auto maintenance.
