Why dell monitor stuck in power save?

There are actually a few things that can cause this
1. VGA/DVI cable unplugged
2. Monitor input settings wrong ..
a. for instance you are using the VGA (Blue) plug and the monitor is not set to auto or analog.
b.or white plug (DVI) is plugged into monitor set to analog.
A few worse case scenarios;
bad video card on /in computer
bad RAM on motherboard ( i have seen this a jillion times)
and the worst case is motherboard is toast..
Play with it and let me know what one it was..good luck

I have a 20" HF205

You only need to use the DVI cable. If your computer has a spot for one dvi and one vga, you will be fine. Hope that answers your question.

If you add a DVI adapter to the the DVI cable going to the Dell Inspiron 580 VGA input, do you get true DVI quality? Can you use a DVI to HDMI adpater?

For the best results, you a straight DVI cable.

VGA is analog, while DVI is digital. The quality will not be as good a a regular DVI cable.

You can use a DVI to HDMI.

I use one going from my PC to TV and the quality is awesome.

My monitor cable does not connect to my computer, which is a optiplex 745, is there cable apadter that i can buy?

I ahve to assume that your new monitor has a DVI connection that looks like this...

You'll need a VGA to DVI adapter (available at electronics stores or online everywhere.
Or, to take advantage of the higher quality resolution of your new monitor, you might consider buying and installing a new graphics card with a VGA & DVI adapter so you can plug it in directly and get higher res.

Vga lead will not fit tower

Try turning it around. If it still doesn't fit, you may need a DVI to VGA adapter.

For DVI you need to probably upgrade your cheap graphics card, something not that expensive would be a ATI Radeon HD2400 Pro, it'll do. May want to check what pwer supply maybe required on your PC.

DVI input on monitor not working

Contacted viewsonic about this issue- they suggested- have both dvi and vga hooked up to same machine. start with poweroff on both. power on monitor, then power on computer. when you see display coming from the vga, power off pc, then disconnect vga cable, turn off power to monitor, disconnect power cord from monitor for 5 + seconds, reconnect power cord, power on monitor, then power on pc.
If this doesn't work to get the dvi working, (as happened to us) we returned our monitor for a replacement, since it was still under warranty.
