Question about Corsair Memory Corsair VX 550W Ultra Quiet PSU SLI & Crossfire Ready 550-Watt Power Supply

Monitor goes into 'Power Saver Mode' on boot up!

Hi, i read some similar topics to this on here, but didnt feel like they were helping me as i still havnt solved the issue!

I've built myself a new PC today, put it all together, with help from an experienced PC builder, and everything it fitted securely and properly. When i start up the computer, my monitor immediately goes into power saver mode, and will not come out of it.

This is what happens when booting (I have NO OS currently installed);
- Press the Power Button
- Keyboard lights come on, then go off
- 1 Beep from the computer, none after
- DVD drive will not open
- GFX card, PSU, CPU and case fans all working

My Setup:
Gigabyte GA-EP31-DS3L motherboard
Intel Pentium Dual-Core Processor 2.5Ghz
Corsair VX550W PSU
ASUS EAH4850 GFX Card
Seagate 500gb HDD

if you need any more details then i can give them to you.

Thanks in andvance!

Andy

You need to upgrade your motherboard BIOS to the latest version (V.5a) to support your DUAL CORE 2.5Ghz processor... that's the problem.

I have a dell studio 540 desktop, I need to restore to factory settings but my monitor will not stay open. It opens for a few seconds then immediately goes into power saver mode and turns off, how can


I see two things here, but need clarification;

1) Monitor goes to Power Saver Mode, then turns -> OFF?

Sure that monitor didn't go into Standby Mode?

2) Why are you performing a restore back to factory settings?
Pick up a virus?

Primer;
The monitor receives a signal. A video signal. The video signal comes from the computer.

If the monitor is NOT receiving a video signal, then the monitor will state No Signal.
This is for older monitors.

New monitors do not state No Signal anymore.
It's Power Saver Mode, or Sleep Mode.

If the monitor is truly OFF, the Power On button will Not be lit up.
Or the Power On LED light on the monitor.

Monitor power on LED is lit, or Power On button is lit?

Monitor is not receiving a video signal;

Use a monitor cable from a KNOWN to be working monitor, for a temporary test.
OR,
Use a Known to be working monitor, and it's monitor cable.

Need to find out if monitor cable is good.

Monitor cable checks out good?

Then problem is computer.

The two leading issues with desktop computer failure, is;

1) Computer is dirty inside
2) Power Supply inside computer is bad.

Please post back in a Comment.

Why no video


a HP monitor. as old as 2006... (o0ps)
read the manual yet? on "power saver modes" turn off them?
i bet you dont know spec, on caps. it's not published by HP ever.
most are +80% - 20% for filters. (ever seen that?)
so a 100uf can read 180uF, or 80uf and is IN SPEC.
but no caps stated, by you, lots there are...
my guess you are
looking for the caps used in china long ago that all failed, every one.
first off you never fully stated whats wrong, in DETAILS.
first have good running pc , with live VGA output (using VGA are you)>? unstated...
the MON, will now live sync, now , Horz and vert, on both pins
the OSD screen now works, if not the monitor is bad.?
or see No/syn, no sig, out of range or no input errors.
Monitor Going to Sleep
see page 34? in your manual yet?
and page 31, turn of power saver ?
if OSD is dead, say so first.




OSD can be locked. push mon menu button for 10sec, now unlocked
then go to OSD screen

Power-Saver Feature
When the monitor is in normal operating mode, the Power li
ght is aqua-white or green (depending on model) and the
monitor uses the normal watts of power. For power us
age, refer to "Technical Specifications" (Appendix B).
The monitor also supports a power-saver mode that is
controlled by the computer. When the monitor is in the
reduced-power state, the monitor screen is
blank, the backlight is off, and the
Power light is amber. The monitor uses
minimum power. When the monitor is "awakened," a brief
warm-up period occurs before the monitor returns to
normal operating mode. The energy-saving reduced power stat
e activates if the monitor does not detect either the
horizontal sync signal or the vertical sync signal. The powe
r-saver feature must be activated on your computer for this
feature to work, << read that carefully?



turn this off ? first?
osd-vboix4tqi2kfzapulla5cn4x-5-0.jpg the early models of the monitor
had CCFL back lamps, and the 2 inverters are on the main power board. left side here

Is this a Software/Config/Hardware Problem ?


hmmm..sounds like a sleep or screen saver conflict...try booting up on Safe mode(F8) on turn on, and then see how that works. Set your screen saver for Never, and see what happens.

You may be hitting a thermal issue with your video circuitry.
