It sound as if there is a system file error. If you havent already, try booting up in safe mode (F8) on start up and when and if it allows you highlight 'Last known good configuration' and hit enter for a restart. If still nothing you need to insert your windows installation disc and hit enter when prompted. This will run a file installation, but not a format and when the files have installed you will have the choice to install windows or repair; select repair for system file installation.

Sounds like the computer is shutting it down and the monitor is fine. Check for viruses then check your settings in device manager for the screen saver and power down (screen off) options.

My Dell Optiplex GX270 goes into power saver mode


this sounds like a bad power supply unit. First check that your Ram and graphics card a free from dust and dirt by removing them from their slots and cleaning them with a dry soft paintbrush then replacing them gently but firmly. Next check that all of the power cables going into the motherboard are pushed in gently but firmly. If this is done and you still get the same problem, then I suggest changing the power supply unit.
