Question about Computers & Internet
If that's the case, first check if your computer itself is on. If it is, then you need to check the connection from the monitor to the computer. If the connection is secure, then there is another issue going on. At this point, I would recommend reseating your RAM and your graphics card (if you have one). If you need help on that simply ask another question or try Google.If you follow all of these steps and the computer still isn't working, I suggest having a IT Professional look at your computer.

There are times when you need to install software for a monitor to work with a PC. If you have the software disk that came with the monitor, you can try to install. You can also try changing the power cord to the monitor. Generally, power cords for PC's and monitors are the same. If you use your PC power cord and the monitor comes on saying that there is no connection with a computer, and it was not doing this before, you can get a new power cord for the monitor. If you can, try the monitor with another PC or laptop to rule out a bad monitor.
I hope these suggestions have given you a place to start and that they were helpful.

Try tapping the F8 key while booting the computer, you will get the start up menu, choose safe mode, when you log on, go to the display settings, that is right click on the desktop, properties, screen saver, advanced and make sure that hibernation is off, along with turn off disks or whatever , probably see turn off monitor after XX minutes, I make ours 15 minutes (150 computers and servers), I don't let the disks turn off. Choose always on also, not home/office. Try this and see if these settings help.

Actually, it most likely is not the monitor which is in "power save mode", it is the computer itself.
When you cannot get a computer out of "power save mode" by any other means, typically the cause is that the button-cell-type battery of your computer, which is located on the motherboard, is empty.
Usually, this happens on a computer which is a few years old, since its batteries will have run out after such a long time. (The motherboard battery is used to store various settings when the computer power is off, such as date and time. When your computer detects this battery is empty, it goes into a low-power mode).
The solution is to replace the button-cell battery on the motherboard of your computer:

So the only way you have to act is, turned off and directly on the mainboard, so do it carefully.
You'll have to find out, where, on the mainboard is located the battery, (a small coin like
unpluggable metallic piece)
Remove it and let all static electricity completely disapear, so, let the cpu power unplugged,
battery removed, for 1h,
Then, place back, battery, try to start again if not working it's hardwaire failure.
