Yes, you arent getting a signal to your monitor from your video card. Try replacing. If its onboard then the Mainboard may be bad. These machines are known by Dell to go bad and is covered under warranty, provided you still have it.

The message you are getting is coming from the monitor, not the P.C.

Its telling you you it went into power save since its not getting a video signal from the P.C. Check connections as well.

If your using any kind of splitter, remove it and connect monitor directly to P.C. to be sure.
Good luck

My Dell gx 280 keeps saving that i'm missing a ntldr, how can I fix this problem


Start the pc with your rescue disc as there is a boot file error. When you get it started, in safe mode, run CHKDSK/F to find the error and attempt to fix it.

Have you tried to go into Safe Mode when the computer first starts? As soon as the initial Dell splash screen is displayed, start tapping the F8 key. A start-up menu will eventually be shown. Use the down arrow key to highlight Safe Mode at the top of the menu and then press <enter>. The computer should start in Safe Mode. It will take a short time. Once it has started, a window will come up telling you that it is in safe mode. Read the message carefully. If you click OK, you will go into Safe Mode. If you click Cancel, you will be able to do a system restore. Click Cancel and follow the process for a system restore. Restore to a date before you did the downloading. It is a pretty straight forward process. The computer will go through the restore process and restart when it is finished.

Good luck, and please let me know how it works out!

Stand by mode


Check the display cables , and if you have one test a different monitor on your computer.

If this is not a sceen problem, then it is an internal fault possibly the motherboard.

Try first leaving the PC power cord unplugged for ten, fifteen minutes and check if PC restarts afterwards.
