Monitor goes to power save mode on startup

Hello. Just two days ago my monitor began to go into power save mode shortly after starting up the computer. Sometimes I can get to the windows load screen, twice i got to the desktop but only for a very brief period of time - not enough to do anything - but it usually goes into that mode only a few seconds after i turn the computer on. (The lights go from green to steady amber on the monitor). I have read people changing the setting for the mode from desktop properties and also in BIOS but i dont have enough time to get into either to check. I am connecting the monitor to my pc with a dvi cable. I tried a new cable and that didnt work. I have two video card in my cp and i tried cleaning all connectors and switching them around and tried all four dvi slots but still nothing. I moved my monitor to a friends and used his vga cable with his computer and the monitor worked. I do not have a separate computer with a dvi slot to test, but I did use an adapter to connect the DVI slot on my computer to the VGA slot on my monitor and still nothing. Any Ideas???

    I have two geforce cards as i had stated and i did try trading places, cleaning them out, and trying different dvi spots, so you think that both cards just went bad?

  • vinniemacceo Dec 09, 2008

    Hmmm, i really dont have any way of testing any of these other things. Guess i am totally screwed. We did blow a fuse the other night and my comp was on that circuit. I wonder if that could have caused a problem.

  • vinniemacceo Dec 09, 2008

    it is on a surge protector so I would assume it would have saved anything from corrupting. Is there a way to test the power supply without putting it in a different computer?

  • vinniemacceo Dec 09, 2008

    Yeah, that is correct. the computer stays on and I have to hold it in to turn it off

  • vinniemacceo Dec 09, 2008

    ok, what i just did was take out the ram and shouldnt it beep as a warning if a memory stick is missing? There was no beeps. I would think this is also a sign that the motherboard is bad? am i correct?

  • vinniemacceo Dec 09, 2008

    That would be great. What info do u need on my comp? Also, there couldnt be just a problem with the "watch" battery looking thing on the motherboard right? no really sure what that is for.

  • vinniemacceo Dec 09, 2008

    hmmm, not really sure about any of this. It is a dell so I may have to call them. It is out of warranty though

    Thanks for all your help. How easy is it to switch out the motherboard? I've done memory and video cards before but never the motherboard

  • vinniemacceo Dec 10, 2008

    Awesome, thanks so much for your help!

Sounds like a bad video card (if embeded "built in") then you need a new mother board

    Or you mother board do you have another system to test the cards in, It could even be you ram or power supple so what you should do is go through and test the different parts tell you know what is doing it here is a list of what can do it
    Power supple
    RAM
    CPU
    Video card
    So testing these will tell you what went wrong


  • Eric Mitchell
    Eric Mitchell Dec 09, 2008

    If you did not have it on a serge protector then yes that can do it (even saw one where the power supply burned) when this happens the computer light stays on and you have to hold it to turn it off correct?

  • Eric Mitchell
    Eric Mitchell Dec 09, 2008

    Yes with a power supple tester but im betting you dont have one but if you have a friend that could test the parts for you that would be great

  • Eric Mitchell
    Eric Mitchell Dec 09, 2008

    Oh and try plugging it into the wall and not using the power strip it may be damaged

  • Eric Mitchell
    Eric Mitchell Dec 09, 2008

    Though so then yes sound like motherboard is dead but without testing I can not say for sure

  • Eric Mitchell
    Eric Mitchell Dec 09, 2008

    Yes if there is no beeping with the memory removed then you need a new motherboard If you want I can help you look up a good one

  • Eric Mitchell
    Eric Mitchell Dec 09, 2008

    The battery is there so your bois info stays even when you computer is unplugged and it is not "required" but you would have to set bois every boot if you do not use it in default. And yes I will need you specs (CPU type/socket/bus speed, RAM type and speed, is your hard drive sata or ide ect...)

Monitor has gone to power saving mode


Hello, The reason your monitor switched to power saving mode is because the operating system on your computer told it to. A computer left on and unattended is programed to sleep/hibernate after usually a short period of time. Without going to in depth, There are stages of sleep and after time the hibernation deepens. However, moving the mouse or pressing a key should take it out of sleep. Microsoft has a support page for this issue: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/266283 Good Day

Laptops often have a function key which switches from laptop only, external monitor only, laptop & external. One of the top number keys, along with the function (fn for short) must be pressed simultaneously to step through these.

My HP W1907 monitor works fine until I try to play The Sims 3 game. I play for several minutes or hours and the monitor shows the message that it is going to sleep and the light on the monitor goes...


Hi there. I had the same problem months ago when I try to play high end games like Sims 3 my monitor goes into power saving mode. I tried to check every possible causes of the problem. It could be that your computer is overheating try to clean your computer and check if your fans still works. Second it could me your power supply malfunctioning, maybe it does not meet the required power to make your game work. Last cause is your video card malfunctioning, what I did is to just buy a new video card and it works.
If you do not have spare power supply or video card you can go to a computer repair shop for them to check the possible problem that causes it to go into power saving mode. It can also save you money before you can buy a new one.
Hope this helps, Have a good day!

Monitor goes dark


If the power light turns yellow, there is no signal being received by the monitor from your computer's graphics card. The screen will shut off (go into idle mode), which is a low-power state, that saves energy. Check that the cable on the back of your computer is plugged into the right graphics card (many PCs come with more than one, these days). There may be one built into the computer's mainboard, and another one may be on a separate graphics card located somewhere else on the machine. Only one of these will work on startup. If one doesn't work, try the other.

Problem w/Dell E176FPf monitor stuck in power save mode


Ok if it the monitor works fine on another unit discount it out of the equation as a monitor problem.
I would suspect the driver on the PC that delivers the problem, especially the video card.
. Check that the cable is also on tightly. remove it and even clean the pins and replug it .the plug on that PC may be dirty

You May need to replace the video card as the communication to the monitor is intermittent and that is why you get the amber light.
Open the box with power off. clean the card if it has a lot of dust on it ( most do and its always a shock) wipe it over ( BOTH SIDES) and then try to start it up as usual with the monitor connected to see if that fixed it ( sometimes works) if not get another card and replace it. Best I can offer without being there to help on the spot.
A new card should allow you access to install and configure it and these days they are pretty cheap to buy

Monitor not starting up -


I think the Power Settings in your Computer needs to be changed. As whenever your computer been IDLE, it goes in a Power Saving Mode.

Adjust your Power Settings from the Control Panel "Power Options" and set them to "Balanced Power Settings" or as per your requirement. There are lot of options their to mention.

Hope your problem will be solved.

Monitor in Power Save Mode


The inverter power logic is probably going bad. You can get it here as well as look at instructional videos on DELL monitors.

No picture


Start with the basics - Replug in the monitor on both ends, try another monitor if possible on your computer - It may have failed on you.

Are you sure the computer is actually booting?? Can you hear the usual startup noises?
