You'll need to troubleshoot a little. SOmething may be broken, but you'll need to find out what. 1: Try the monitor on another computer, see wether it will work on that one. If it doesn't, the monitor's broken and you're probably going to need a new one. 2: If the monitor does work, put it back, but now use another cable to connect it to the PC. If that fixes it, your cable was broken. 3: If not, you could try to switch the graphics card in the PC with another one. Do not attempt that, however, unless you know what you're doing. If you don't, get someone you know to do it for you, or take it to a computer shop. If the PC will boot with another graphics card, the old one is broken. 4: If not, it may be your motherboard that's broken. Repeat step 3 with it. These steps should fix your problem. If not, please post back here. Regards, Yannick.

The monitor is not receiving signal from the computer. Verify the computer is on and the monitor input is set to the correct mode or auto. Try another monitor if possible.

SOURCE: monitor will not display - when switched off and

It is not detecting a signal from your computer.
This means your video card is not sending an image.
You can try another monitor, but I don't think that will help.
I would boot the computer into safe mode and see if that helps.
If it does, then the problem most likely is that your video card is trying to send an image in a resolution that is too high for your monitor.
Otherwise, your video card has a problem. (Assuming that your computer is actually booting up)

SOURCE: E172FP (Black) 17 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor: Dell monitor problem, its the power save mode agai...

First, try it on another PC, check or try another VGA cable, if it still does not work then you need to open it up. Dell monitors are known to have bad solder connections, bad caps. See my photo albums of failed Dell monitors to get some idea what to look for.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed DELL monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Acer pc and lg monitor blank screen says power save mode on start up, anyone know how to fix this?


Actually during start-up there is a slight delay before the HDD & OS is detected by the CPU. Normally all monitors slip into power saving mode within 10 secs of inactivity of either mouse or keystroke. This inactivity is read by the monitor which promptly switches to power saving mode. However the moment the HDD LED starts blinking, the monitor wakes up & starts displaying. This power saving mode in most of the flat screens is only associated with movement of mouse or keypad. This does not register till the CPU starts up & thats why the monitor switches over to power saving mode till it starts receiving signal from the CPU.
It is a normal behaveour, so don't get worked up over it, plus you can always hit the Auto set feature on the monitor after booting the PC completely. ( I think the time out for the monitor to enter power saving mode is only 10 secs). Hope this helps.

Monitor says 'auto detect, entering power save mode' and then goes black, moving cursor or buttons doesn't help


This is usually not a monitor problem.

You have to start trouble shooting with elimination. First try to connect the monitor to another computer with the correct cables then if that works, you know your problem is on the computer end.

If not, you probably have the wrong cable.

There is also another option and that is that the screen resolution from the graphics card is not compatible with the resolution of the monitor.
This can be changed in the display settings in the control panel of your computer.

Screen goes black while in use


If your monitor it's good the reason may be that the settings of the refresh rate is to high for your monitor. Try to enter in Safe Mode (Press F8 key before booting in OS and from the menu choose Safe Mode) and then from Control Panel try to remove de video driver and then restart the computer. After restart, the OS will detect your video card as standard VGA card. After that install your video driver again.

My monitor shuts down after one second.


Dell monitors automatically go into power-save mode after a preset amount of time when the computer is inactive. The Dell monitor will go completely black, instead of showing a screensaver. This doesn't mean that your Dell computermag-glass_10x10.gif has shut down. Instead, this allows your monitor to essentially turn off until it's needed again. You can change how long it is before the Dell monitor goes into power-save mode by changing your display settings.
  1. Step 1 Press any key on your keyboard or move your mouse. Either will turn off power-save mode. Alternately, you can press the power button on your Dell computer tower or laptop.
  2. Step 2 Press any key a second time if the monitor goes from power-save to stand-by mode. Stand-by mode allows the screensaver to appear.
  3. Step 3 Enter your user name and password into the login prompt if your computer requires a login. Press "Enter" to begin using your Dell computer.
  4. Step 4 Change the display settings on your Dell monitor to prevent your monitor from going into power-save mode prematurely. Right-click anywhere on your desktop and choose "Properties." Click the "Screensaver" tab and press "Power." Beside "Turn off Monitor," choose a time amount from the drop-down list and press "Apply."
