So the only way you have to act is, turned off and directly on the mainboard, so do it carefully.
You'll have to find out, where, on the mainboard is located the battery, (a small coin like
unpluggable metallic piece)
Remove it and let all static electricity completely disapear, so, let the cpu power unplugged,
battery removed, for 1h,
Then, place back, battery, try to start again if not working it's hardwaire failure.

Monitor stuck in safe power mode


"Power Save Mode" but it tells you to press a key or whatever?

were you able to reboot the PC?

if you can reboot the PC but no screen is showing up during Windows load (you can see the hard drive activity LED lighting up and your hard drive spinning), then, youre probably have a broken monitor.


Or if your problem is you cannot wake from power saving mode (after your PC goes to sleep, then its probably just the driver for your video card). VISTA has some issues with certain drivers that the PC cannot wake from sleep. http://www.ezsystemrepairs.com/

Hello..just moved my desk top to new desk..everything is fine..but mouse won t work..while it was unplugged i cleaned keyboard..monitor with soft cloth..can u tell me why my mouse won t work


IF it's a serial mouse (meaning green round connector) it's probably not plugged in correctly. Now these are not plug and play so you need to reboot your system in order for it to work. Try that.

I set my computer to power save mode last night by changing the setting so the monitor would turn off after 5 hours. Now I can't get it to come back on. I've tried moving the mouse, turning the monitor...


hold the power button down for 5 secounds, then turn back on . if you can get the bios load up page try pressing f12 or f8 constantly untill u get a menu to boot computer in safe mode and try tunring this power saving off and restart.

To test the hardware all you have to do is to boot from a Linux Live-CD like

If all is ok there then your Windows is corrupted, reinstall.

How do we turn off the POWER SAVING MODE on the monitor screen?


Try going into your Start Menu then going into your control panel...then clicking on your "power options"....then switching the options to 'always on'..if this does not work..(as it seems you may not be seeing this because the monitor is in power saving mode) try fiddling with the setup option on your monitor and find a possible powersaving mode enabled function and disable it. every monitor is different so I couldn't really help you here...if this doesn't yield results try another monitor to see if it's the monitor having the problems or the computers video card...the video card could very well be the culprit...

My Gateway 500s monitor is stuck in power save mode


Try tapping the F8 key while booting the computer, you will get the start up menu, choose safe mode, when you log on, go to the display settings, that is right click on the desktop, properties, screen saver, advanced and make sure that hibernation is off, along with turn off disks or whatever , probably see turn off monitor after XX minutes, I make ours 15 minutes (150 computers and servers), I don't let the disks turn off. Choose always on also, not home/office. Try this and see if these settings help.

Monitor goes into Power Save mode unexpectedly


What are your settings in Control Panel, Performance and Maintenance, Power Options? Do you leave your pc on all of the time or do you turn it on just when you need it? If you are getting lines on your monitor, it is possible that it's starting to give out on you. Please don't try to fix a monitor unless you know EXACTLY what you are doing. It can be very dangerous.
