Can't wake monitor after going to sleep

Hi I recently purchased an Intel Arc A770 and have been enjoying the experience so far, however there is one issue that bugs me and actually affects my workflow.  When my monitors go to sleep the graphics card is unable to wake up my monitor connected via HDMI, the power light on the monitor will switch from 'standby' to 'active' while my other two monitors flash as the windows are re-arranged.  Along with this the Intel Arc Control panel will pop up with notifications that something has changed and it will do this ad nauseum until I hold down the power button on the HDMI connected monitor to power it off and then power it back on, only then will things start working.

 

This has been an issue with the three different set of drivers that I've tested, is there any fix for this?

 

  Thank you!

 

Software

OS Version: 21H2

OS Edition: Windows 10 Pro

Hello Andres,

 

Thank you for reaching out and for taking the time to respond to us all!  I tried to install the latest driver but sadly I'm still experiencing the same issue, the new Control interface is great however!  I did generate a report using the Intel Graphics Command Center, please let me know if you need anything else.

after a long time without having that problem, today, i had to reboot the computer 4 times to get a display.
The computer boots normally, even go to windows, (i got the boot song) it just wont display anything wathever wich display port i use or monitor i use. 

I dont know if its what changed something or if it just chance, the 4th time i flipped of the psu switch and its only after that i got a display. 

Its just EXTREMELY painful.

Hi there, just created an account on here to explain how I was able to fix this problem as I recently got an a770 and was forced to keep turning my PC off every time it went to sleep.

I downloaded the 'Chipset INF Utility' driver for my motherboard and it seems to have fixed it. I also had an unknown device in device manager and it cleared that as well. That driver gives windows INF files about hardware connected to the PC. Cheers guys, hope that helps someone. 

It was one of the chipset drivers anyway that fixed the problem for me as I downloaded a few, but I'm fairly sure it was the INF Utility one. 

Edit: My PC feels a lot smoother and snappy too. 

Edit 2: Yeah, fixed more issues than I thought. My stuttering/audio pops are fixed as well.

Had the same problem. Integrated Iris Graphic on 13gen Intel I7 with LG screen connected via TB.

 

Good news. It did disappear with 5194 and everything worked like a charm. Thnx

 

Bad news. Came back with 5333 and same old problem is here again.

 

Downgraded to 5194 as the issue is so annoying that I rather live on an old driver version.

I have the same problem in a brand new computer, details:

 

Graphics: Acer Predator Bifrost Intel Arc A770

Monitor: HP Z32 4K UHD

Processor: intel i9-14900K

Motherboard: Gigabyte Z790 Aorus Pro X

Memory: Kingston FURY Beast DDR5 6000 64GB

Systemdisk: Samsung 990 pro 2TB M.2 SSD

Cooling: Arctic Liquid Freezer III 280

 

OS: Windows 11 pro

 

I estimate about 1 out 5 resumes from sleep fails in the intel graphics card. I can hear the Windows wakeup sound but the card will not give a signal to any output. I have a motherboard graphics output as well which I think takes its signal from the processor, but I have not been able to see a signal there either. I'm not familiar with the power options in the motherboard BIOS, but perhaps there is a solution among these settings. The failed wakeups show a brief booting screen before the monitor return to sleep indicating some sort of "deep sleep".

To add to the above:

I installed the latest driver including firmware in gfx_win_101.5382. 

After suspension, the computer resumed normally from sleep mode but the intel graphics didn't. Fortunately, I installed a second graphics card (AMD Radeon RX 460) which resumed normally. To get the Intel graphics to respond again, I need to restart the computer.

 

edit:

I made an Intel® System Support Utility report.

Hi just an update since this appears to be the only thread/info on the internet regarding Intel arch graphics monitor not coming back on after going to sleep.

 

The issue is still present even today (23rd June 2024)

 

I have the latest mini pc based off Intel Core Ultra 5 125H cpu with the Display Adapter(s): Intel(R) Arc(TM) Graphics 31.0.101.5007 installed.

 

Its random but sometimes the monitor does not wake back up id say its 3-4 times out of 10 atm, Intels previous Arc display driver before the .5007 was much better and id say it worked almost every time I woke my mini pc back up but then a few days after this newer version got installed with the windows update and it broke it again.

 

So I can see intel engineers are trying and doing something, I have my mini pc set to sleep every 3 minutes so can replicate the issue asap.

 

Considering Intel has been trying to fix this issue after a year is discouraging though, I am just sell it off and try and go for and AMD gpu/system which is what I should have done in the first place.

for me, what fixed the problem, was to send back the card to intel and going back to the store buying another one.
(but the original from intel was no longer available, had to get a predator a770)
Never had any problems since

Cant edit or update my last reply above but I double checked with intel driver support assistent tool which said my Arc and intel drivers were up to date (31.0.101.5007) I just figured let me triple check this on the intel driver site:

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/download/785597/intel-arc-iris-xe-graphics-windows.html

 

And the driver I had was from 2023 december..... so not sure why windows 11 updated to that driver and why intel tool said I was on the latest driver which was clearly wrong.  Its quite possible its due to the new meteor lake cpus that came out this month which I have.

 

Grabbed the new one which is 31.0.101.5522 which came out 2 weeks ago and back to normal with sleep and monitor working.

 

Now I just need to figure out why YT screen is flickering when I scroll up and down.

 

Also another good thread on intel drivers is found here:

Regarding my post above, just a quick update. Intels driver support app was saying my drivers were up to date despite me having: 31.0.101.5007 version installed.

 

Not sure why that was but it caused a lot of issue for me, I went onto Intels own website here

and spotted actually 5522 newer version is out (which works fine), so used DDU in safe mode to uninstall the old intel drivers and reload the newer 5522 and its back to working properly again.

 

Please don't take intel's driver support utility word for it when it says all your drivers are up to date!   Manually check the intel website or google every now and then to avoid the issues I did.
