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.

Gateway computer is stuck in power saving mode.


The Gateway 818GM is a few years old but if - hopefully - the motherboard auto-detects a video card, try removing the MSI MS-8936 video card & swapping over the monitor lead to the other VGA connector fed from the motherboard.

Failing that, if you think it's a faulty video card, they're cheaply available on eBay eg for US$6.70 here:
MSI NVIDIA GeForce MX 4000 MS 8936 64 MB DDR SDRAM AGP 4x 8x Graphics

My monitor on my gateway mid tower goes straight to power saving mode so I can"t log on


Hi, if the monitor stays on "saving mode" it means you have some bad capacitors inside the monitor, so you have to get it fixed. If you connect another monitor and you still get the same thing, it means the display's resolution is out of range. So restart safe mode and reconfigure it. I hope this helps.
