Make sure your cable is the right one, and that it's truly well-connected to the monitor. My monitor stays in self-check when it's not receiving a signal from the ol' computer.

How to start dell monitor that is stuck on self test feature to start in safe mode? Or really I just need help getting it off self test feature


Hi, I would check the connections to and from the monitor. There will be 16 pin connecter. Make sure the pins are not damaged bent or broken. replace with same cable. Go to your local computer store and buy new cable. Good luck.

My Lenovo mouse won't work. It connects and registers but won't move? Is there any help?


Hello,

Try booting to safe mode and check if your mouse works inside safe mode.

Restart the computer and tap F8 until you see the options to boot to safe mode. Use the arrow keys to highlight either safe mode or safe mode with networking. Hit enter.

Once you are inside safe mode, check if your mouse works. If it works, then you just need to update the mouse driver. You can use RadarSync to search and install the update into your computer. You better use Safe Mode with Networking because RadarSync needs the internet or even the manual updating process needs an internet connection.

I hope this helps!

My HP A735W is turning on but stays in power save mode and no key board or mouse function


I think the issue is your monitor. If the monitor constantly says Power Save Mode and not let anything else display then the monitor might be bad. See if we can isolate the problem by the steps below.

Try booting up in Safe Mode and see if the monitor works ok.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal. If it works ok in safe mode then the monitor is ok and we might have an issue with a setting.


Try connecting another monitor to your computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor works ok, then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does the same thing as your original monitor then the issue is with the computer (possibly the video card).

When I turn on the computer the monitor starts to come on and then it goes into safe mode and goes off. I first get a green light for a couple of seconds then it goes to amber.


Have you tried with another computer? I suggest to do it first, before assuming this is your monitor problem...as this is usually caused by most of computer problem not monitor.

Monitor stays in sleep mode?


when you disconnect the monitor from the PC do you see the self test appear on the screen? if you do then the monitor is working fine.
the issue is most likely that the computer's screen resolution is too high and your monitor cannot output that resolution , so it stays a blank screen or in 'sleep' mode as you described.
youd need to go into either Safe Mode when booting the system or find another monitor preferably a newer model to connect your computer to and decrease the resolution before connecting your monitor.

Distorted display


Hi,

You could isolate the problem if it is a monitor / video card problem by removing the cable (VGA/DVI) and see if the self test feature will have a distorted display

If Yes - Monitor Problem
If No - Video Card Problem or Software problem

If no, try to go to safe mode by tapping "F8" once you turn the computer on.
1. Select Safe mode (Check for video distortion)
2. Select Enable VGA Mode (Check for video distortion)

If one of the 2 is distorted the video card has a problem

If one of them doesn't show any distorted video it means its a driver/software problem.

Hope this helps.

Monitor keep going into "sleep" mode


Check the power setting in control panel of windows. If you have a monitor from another computer swap them and see if the problem stays with the computer or monitor.

Flatron LG monitor safe mode


Your monitor goes to Power Saving Mode when the signal it is receiving is not correct. In all probability this is not a problem of the monitor itself, rather you should check the connections and the computer the monitor it's connected to. For example you could try a different RGB cable and try it in a different computer.
