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 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 desktop that my buddy drought to me and I was gonna put a new windows xp os on it and the monitor will turn on then goes into power saving mode??


replug your cables and wirings inside your CPU, if your using a Video card and it goes power saving mode, use the on-board video card if you have, if you dont have try using another video card to isolate the problem.

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

My DELL flatcreen just went blank and is now flashing yellow light, won't turn on


Check and make sure your connections on the back of the PC are snug...and make sure you have a good connection at the back of the monitor.
Flashing light...is loss of signal.
Good Luck,
Mike

Dell screen (1901FP) won't come out of power saver mode


hold down the Fn and F8 keys, and it worked fine for me. or if your problem is you cannot wake from power saving mode (after your PC goes to sleep, then its probably just the driver for your video card). VISTA has some issues with certain drivers that the PC cannot wake from sleep

Screen is black and power button gone amber colour.if you press buttons on monitor it says,in power safe mode press any key or move mouse. when you do this nothing happens


Restart the computer and turn off power save mode. If this is vista the power save mode has a lot of problems and can cause things like this to happen.

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.
