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

    Awesome, thanks so much for your help!

    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 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...)

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
Plug the battery backup into a working electrical outlet. If the battery backup turns on when the power button is pressed, then the problem may be that the previous electrical outlet is faulty. Proceed to step three. If the battery backup doesn't turn on, proceed to step two.
  • 2 Reset the circuit breaker on the battery backup. APC battery backups have a labeled circuit breaker button located on the unit near the phone line, fax line, USB, network and coaxial cable inputs. Press the button to reset the circuit breaker. Power on the battery backup by pressing the power button. If the battery backup powers on, proceed to step three. If the battery backup doesn't turn on, proceed to step six.

  • 3 Determine if the battery backup is charged and providing battery power. With the battery backup on and plugged into a working electrical outlet, plug a computer monitor into one of the battery backup outlets labeled "battery backup plus surge protection" on the battery backup. (APC power supplies have some outlets that provide only surge protection while the other outlets provide surge protection plus battery backup.) Turn the monitor on. Unplug the battery backup power cord from the wall outlet. If the monitor remains on, the battery is holding a charge, supplying electrical power and the battery backup is working properly. If the monitor goes off, proceed to step four.
  • 4 Charge the battery. Plug the battery backup into an electrical outlet and allow the battery to charge for 16 hours. This will fully charge the battery.
  • 5 Test battery charge. Once the battery is fully charged, repeat step three. If the monitor stays on when power is interrupted to the battery backup, the issue is solved and the problem resulted from an incompletely charged battery. If the monitor turns off when power is interrupted, the battery within the battery backup is faulty and needs to be replaced.
  • 6 Replace the battery backup unit. The unit itself is faulty. If the battery backup is under warranty, contact APC to request a replacement.

    Battery does not get charged fully... and does not support load of computer in backup mode...


    hello,

    If the battery backup unit is over 2.5 years old then you will need to replace the battery. Go to your local electronics parts house or battery distributor. They will have the gel cell battery you need in stock. These units are just like small car batteries, after a few years of use they will break down and not hold a full charge. When this starts to happen the battery life is about to be over, it will hold less and less charge until one day no power at all and then the UPS will not power on. The UPS have a monitor circuit that will prevent them from powering up with a dead or missing battery. The replacement battery should run less than $20.

    I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

    My 485VA back up system beeps after I have a few things plugged into it. Does the beeping mean the battery is bad?


    Try only the computer and monitor - it may be overloaded, 485VA is around 400W only, so it won't accomodate much more than a standard computer + monitor.
    Especially a laser printer is very power consuming and should not be connected to any UPS.

    When I boot my PC up I get a blank screen and a message saying no signal then the screen goes into standby mode


    OK, it's gonna be one of these 3 things :

    1. The cable linking your CPU to your monitor might not be properly plugged or has been damaged. You should hence ensure that the connection between the two devices has been properly done and that the cable’s state is fine. 

    2. You might be facing a problem with your monitor if the CPU makes a single beep error sound when you switch on the system. You can check whether the problem comes from your monitor by testing it on another CPU. If you still have “No Signal” error displayed including the error beep, I would strongly suggest you to try to get your monitor fixed by a competent technician or to get a new monitor. 

    3. If you receive several error beeps when starting the computer, this might be linked to a graphic card dysfunction. You can refer to the motherboard notice or check that the connection has been properly set

    The monitor goes into power save mode and the ups disconnect


    It should work, make sure each profile is set the same way. Keep in mind you should still be able to utilize your standby feature, and your screensaver as well.

    Ac plug in for E15T flat screen monitor


    If it has been ripped out of the back of the monitor, then you will need a new monitor. If it has an area in the back of the monitor where you can plug in one end of a power cord, then all you need is to buy you a cord that fits your monitor.

    Unit is switching to battery power for now reason.


    Any UPS monitors the incoming AC level to determine if it is needed or not.  I think the APC unit doesn't know any more when it is needed; it's sick.

    you have to have the power rating rated in amps of the bed...if the rating of your bed and the system are same or even less than that..(i.e. the rating of television is less than that of computer monitor,so u can connect tv for long time than monitor when power goes off ) then u can surely use it.....but it ll provide the supply only till the back up is stored in the battery,when the power goes off
