    Monitor problem

    When I turn on the PC the monitor light indicates green but the screen remains blank. I have to disconnect the power cord and reconnect it in order to get the windows screen. I also have to do this when the screen goes idle. I think it may have something to do with an error message that I keep getting "esrv.exe application error 0xc0000142". From what I have read it has to do with intel update driver utility which I don't have install. Instead I uninstalled Intel Driver and Support Assistant and I am still getting the same error.

    Check because it is part of Vaio care, so it might be on your computer. (I've also seen it show up on other brands of computers).
    The location of the problematic esrv.exe file is C:\\Program Files\\Intel Driver Update Utility\\SUR\\x64

    I'm trying to find out more about this in your scheduled tasks: C:\WINDOWS\System32\Tasks\IntelSURQC
    but so far it seems to be mentioned in threads at forums dealing with malware.
    I"m not qualified to determine if this is a good or bad file.

    The Intel Driver Update Utility folder was empty so I deleted it and the error message popped up again.

    Sorry it didn't work. The only solution I've found is to remove the Intel Driver Update utility and since you don't have it, I'm out of ideas.

    If you're brave, you could disable this task C:\WINDOWS\System32\Tasks\IntelSURQCIf it doesn't do anything about the error, then enable it again.

    msconfig then click on the startup tab. If nothing there, look in Task Scheduler. (Control Panel, Admin Tools, Scheduled Tasks)

    Re: Monitor problem

    Could you run this command in command prompt and upload it as a zip file (right click > send to > compressed (zipped) folder)
    msinfo32 /nfo "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\msinfo32.nfo"

    I was able to disable IntelSURQC in Task Scheduler for which there were 2 entries. msinfo32.rar
