Question about Acer Aspire 5610 Notebook

External monitor says laptop is in power save mode and goes blank

I have an LG Flatron LCD TV which says it can be used as a computer monitor, and has a 15 point female port marked PC. I have an Acer Aspire 5610 laptop which has an identical port. I bought a connector which uses these ports to make this possible.

When my computer is booting up, the TV (if in PC mode) acts as a monitor until my desktop is about to appear. At that point the TV comes up with a message 'going to DPM mode', and the screen goes blank. The TV manual says that DPM means Display Power Management, and that when the PC is in power saving mode this feature automatically turns of the TV screen.

I don't know what power saving mode is, and my laptop is operating on mains power (not using the battery). I did try removing the battery so that only mains power could be being used. But that did not help.

Is it impossible to use this TV as an external monitor?

right click your desktop->

click the settings tab->
click the advance button->
click the display tab->
depending on your graphic card there should be 2 or 3 different monitors being displayed switch them on and automatically your TV will turn on then you can change the settings to your likings

Monitor automatically clicks into power saving mode


Laptops often have a function key which switches from laptop only, external monitor only, laptop & external. One of the top number keys, along with the function (fn for short) must be pressed simultaneously to step through these.

Where these keys are at, may differ from laptop to laptop.

My main home computer whener turned on goes to analog powersaving


LG does not show the 1750 monitor on their web site. It did show some discontinued monitors including a 1752, but there was no information available about them.

Another LG site said to use the far right bottom to auto adjust....for another monitor.

My HP has four buttons, MENU, <, >, and Return (also AUTO). Menu opens the monitor dialog box, with the arrow bottoms shifting through the menu. Select an item with return, then arrow to your selection, menu is also your exit button.

You may have a power saving selection here.

Also check the control panel for the POWER OPTIONS properties. A power scheme selection here will also change the mode of your monitor.

good luck

LG Flatron L177WSB-how would I use my newly purchased unit after switching it on, LG logo appears followed by the Power Saving Mode it all goes black on the screen.


Hi, the Power Saving Mode, turns the screen off to conserve energy. On the remote, press Menu, and scan to Power Saving Mode. You can change the amount of time, when the Screen turn-off, the TV shut-off etc. You can set the time to (5 min) to, (never, turn-off). This should help with your problem. Thanks paul7of9

Power saving mode


What brand is your laptop? Sometimes you have to manually switch between your laptop and an external monitor. Usually pressing the "CTRL" button and "F5" might work to switch the signal from laptop external.
