Question about Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop

1 Answer

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.

Black screen


Sounds like your screen is being switched to "Power Save" mode due to inactivity. This should switch back when the mouse is moved. This can take several seconds on a laptop. You can remove this "Power Save" by right clicking anywhere on blank desktop, select "Properties", "Screen Saver" and "Power Settings" then select "Always On" for the monitor.

Try the monitor if you can on another computer and see if it stays in power save mode. If it does then the monitor is bad.

If you try the monitor on another computer and you get video then that means theres an issue with the original computer.

Powersave


If it's going into powersave mode, it usually means it's not getting a signal from the video card. Try plugging this monitor into another machine or laptop and you should be able to tell if that's the issue.
