My monitor goes to sleep immediately when I turn on the computer not allowing time to start in safe mode or the get to the settings to change the sleep mode, how can I fix this problem?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

First I would exercise the connections to the monitor.

Then I would test another monitor. If you get the same problem, it’s not the monitor.

Hope this helps!

I agree with the above answer, first check connections, then try another monitor, if you can try a different make or model of monitor, the signal might be outside the range of the monitor you are using. Another thing to try is to try a different video card in the problem system, if there is another computer available, try the suspect monitor on that one.
Good Luck!
