Hold down the function key on your keyboard (lower left hand side of your keyboard between the control key and the windows key) and the F8 key simultaneously. This cycles through all monitor set up modes.

Most Dell LCDs have multiple inputs and they will go into "standby" while waiting for a signal from your PC. This happens when your PC goes into "sleep" mode or if you are sure your PC is not in "sleep" mode then usually the LCD is not in the correct input selection. Check the input selection for the appropriate input. As always, make sure the cables are securely connected. Hope this helps.

Stuck in power save mode


stlmeuzyk, Internal "switch-mode-power-supply"/"ccfl-inverter-supply" will probably need to be refurbished (repaired). Use Dell warranty first if valid option! Try monitor on different pc or verify your pc is working properly with old, but known-good monitor. If your E228WFP unit is still not working then you or qualified electronics technician will need to tear-down monitor to evaluate and repair the ac to dc power supply printed circuit board. Before you do anything read my fixya profile to learn flashlight test that every ccfl back-lit lcd monitor owner should know how to do and interpret the results of test. The basic design and operation of your E228WFP isn't any different than any other brand!!! Read the older solutions in my profile and follow the links you find there. Then do additional comment if need more info. Good luck with the repair. 12fixlouie

Dell screen (1901FP) won't come out of power saver mode


hold down the Fn and F8 keys, and it worked fine for me. 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

My desktop pc has gone into power save mode


Turn the whole pc off then back on. If the LCD stays in power save then I would try a diffrent monitor on the PC. If that fixes it the the monitor is probably stuck in power save. Check www.lcdrpair.us for parts and instructions.
