Power save mode

I have a Dell SE198WTFP flatscreen monitor and when i plug it into my video card port directly the monitor will not come on, rather go into power save mode and will not come out. When i plug it into the other monitor port i can get my screen to come up but does not recognize my video card...i believe... it says (when i pull up a game) no display port available. What to d?

Try first, plug it into the pcs default video card if it is working. If screen works fine. Then we know it is something to do with the new video card. If so turn PC off unplug it till all power is off most pcs have a little light inside make sure it is off. Remove the new PC card clean contacts on card and in the PC . put it back making sure to seat it good. turn PC on. run a driver update scan for the card. restart PC. Then try to see if your screen will work now. If not you have a bad card or slot were card is hooked into. Hope this will help you some.

My dell gx260 ligth come green if i turn it on but for a few mins time it turn orange why


Do you mean the monitor's power light starts green and then turns orange when you turn it on? Most monitors will go to a power saving mode when they do not get a signal from the computer.

The Dell GX260 has a green power light when on. When the computer is off, the light is off. If it is green and blinking, then the computer is in a power saving mode.

Diagnosis: start with the obvious: is the monitor cable plugged into both the computer and the monitor (if not permanently connected to the monitor)? Are you connected to the active port? (You can add a video graphics card in most desktops. The motherboard video port usually needs to be disabled to use the card ports. If you plug in the monitor cable to the disabled port, it won't work.) Is the monitor set to the correct input? (This applies if the monitor has several ports. In that case, there will be a Source or Input button on the monitor.) Is the computer on? The GX260 has the power button on the front. (Other computers have the power button on the top.) There is also the power supply switch on the back which needs to be on.

Next try a different data cable between the monitor and the computer (if you can). Try a different monitor. If a second monitor works, than the monitor has a damaged main board. If the second monitor doesn't work, then the video graphics adapter has probably failed. Replace the add-on card, if in use, then boot in the safe mode to remove the old graphics driver. Then install the correct driver for the graphics adapter.

Note: the computer and the monitor should both be off when you connect the cables. Then turn on the monitor first and set it to the correct source before turning on the computer.)

I hope this helps.

My desktop monitor direct go in power save mode.so please solve it as soon as possible its urgent


power save mode indicates no input signal. Check the input signal with a known good monitor. if the signal is good then dell monitor is faulty. Power cycle (unplug the power then plug it back in) the monitor to reset to factory and if it still goes directly into power save mode the unit is faulty.

I have a Dell 8400 with a wired keyboard and wireless mouse. My computer went into Save Mode and my flatscreen monitor says to press any key on the keyboard or move the mouse to restart. When I do this...


try shutting down, remove power cable, remove memory chips, remove battery on motherboard(coin battery). remove grpahics card from slot(if its the kind you can remove). Now wait 10-15 sec then put in the graphics card, the batter, the memory sticks and close the case plug in the power cable and see if this works!

Dell228wfp on start up pwr on is green screen


Either the cable is not connected to the proper port or the display-source is not configured properly.Here's what you can try.
  • Ensure that you have connected the VGA/DVI cable in the correct port. If you have an extended graphics card in your computer, use a DVI cable(Digital input) else the VGA would be the only option available.
  • If the cable seems to be plugged at the right place, press the first button from the left on the front panel of your monitor (Button 1 shown in the front view: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/monitors/E228WFP/En/ug/about.htm#Front_View), once. This toggles the digital mode to analog mode of your monitor, and vice versa.
  • If the first two steps do not work, its not an issue with the monitor. It could be a failing cable or a defective video card, or the system itself is not completing the POST.

Thanks,
Abhishek

Monitor on power save mode and using wireless keyboard and mouse


This sounds like the monitor is not reading a signal from the computer. I had the same problem when I installed a DIV cable from my old VGA cable. The video card was still sending the signal via VGA port instead of the DVI port of my video card. You should cheack the cable to you're computer and what port is being used. If everything is hooked up correctly then there might be a problem with the cable. Other then that it could be you're video card. If the hard drive is running and everything is running fine then what I said should be whats wrong. If nothing works go back to the shope and tell them the new problem you have.

Lp w1952tq goes into power saving mode


one some laptops you need to enable the video/vga port (where you plug the monitor in). On a Dell, you'd press function (Fn key) and F8 - this will activate the additional video out port. If you keep pressing that combination, you'll get one, the other, or both working in sequence.

Power save mode


Yes, you arent getting a signal to your monitor from your video card. Try replacing. If its onboard then the Mainboard may be bad. These machines are known by Dell to go bad and is covered under warranty, provided you still have it.

The message you are getting is coming from the monitor, not the P.C.

Its telling you you it went into power save since its not getting a video signal from the P.C. Check connections as well.

If your using any kind of splitter, remove it and connect monitor directly to P.C. to be sure.
Good luck
