Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop

Screen says power save mode or blank

When I turn on the machine, the monitor stays blank with yellow symbol. If I push one of the monitor buttons it says "power save mode" press any key or move mouse. This does not do anything. Have checked out monitor and keyboard on separate computer. Both work fine. Problem in box. I have tried both ports and done the off on thing numerous times. Nothing works.

    I've got the Dimension E310. It's been off for a long time. I'm trying to get it back up and working. When I turn the PC on, I get a series of beeps. The Monitore is black screen. When pushing the monitor menu button it tells me it in the Power save mode and to press any button or mouse! I'm getting nothing

You might have put the computer into hibernate; have you tried pressing the power button? It should wake the computer up if it is asleep or hibernating. It is also possible that your monitor cable is unplugged.

Power Save mode on, can not use computer


If your computer is indeed running, simply unplug your monitor from the wall, and then plug it back in. This will bring your monitor out of power save mode instantly.

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.

Blank screen on my laptop but power button is on.


Depending on what kind of laptop you have, your button may look different. Look at the Function keys (all those keys up at the top that have F's in front of them) and see if there is another colored symbol on any of them. You should find a colored symbol that looks like a rectangular monitor.

Press another key toward the bottom of your keyboard that probably says "Fn" or some other kind of "Function" key - not Alt, Ctrl, or Shift. Hold that Fn key down while you press the first key you found that looks like a monitor. That will change your laptop video output mode between several different modes like: laptop LCD panel only; LCD panel and external monitor; and external monitor only.

The purpose of this is if you wanted to plug another monitor into the back of your laptop, or a projector for a meeting or presentation, etc.

Most likely your video card is broken. To check if the motherboard isnt broken either, I would suggest you test usb, sound, and other features of the motherboard.
 If your motherboard isnt broken then you have to buy a "pci-e graphics card" at your local store. Shouldnt cost much, about $40-70. Hope that helps.

Screen keeps going blank


First thing to do is always check the cable. Make sure it push in all the way. If needed to screw it down. Could also be stand by time out. were the monitor is on a power saving mode. It will go black after 20 minutes or so. If this system stays on all of the time, change the power schemes to "Always On", just make sure you set the monitor and system or hard drive are set to "Never"

Check your power option in the control panel. Look for tab mark "Power Schemes"

Below are pull down menus to change the timeout setting for hard drive, monitor and system.

First of all, most monitors now a days are plug and play. Make sure the monitor is secure on both sides. There is also another connecter like the one attached to the CPU on the monitor, so make sure they're both securly attached. Also make sure you have the connector plugged in the correct monitor port. some computers have 2.

Computer monitor comes on for 1 seconds, flashes "analog power save mode" and then goes black.


Most monitors will say "Power save mode" when they can tell through residual voltage that the signal lead is plugged into a machine, but there's no picture being transmitted. The four states of a monitor are:

* Off entirely.
* Switched on, plugged into a computer but no video signal being received - usually displays "analog power save mode" or "digital power save mode" for a few seconds, then blanks. Comes back to life the moment a video signal is received. This state is the default in full power saving mode.
* Switched on, not plugged into a computer. Some monitors don't display anything, some go into power saving mode, some fly "CHECK SIGNAL CABLE" or a similar message around the screen. Picture is restored when the signal cable is plugged back into the computer
* On fully, receiving an image, and displaying.

Hope this helps.
