If the problems happens on another computer then call dell to get the problem resolved. You could also go into the system setup by pressing F2 when the computer loads up and see if it happens in their, or you can also put the known good monitor in your system and it you get the same problem the problem is with the computer and the issue is either a hardware or software issue. If the problem happens in the system setup or during the diagnostics then the issue is hardware. Please call dell tech support if you find out the issue is points to the monitor and we would be glad to replace the monitor, if the monitor is not tied to the system(not in the order details or was purchased later) then the monitor has a 3 year warranty, if the monitor was purchased with the system , the warranty is the same as the system or if that warranty more than 3 years than the warranty for the monitor is still only 3 years. Thanks and please reply back if you still need assistance.

How can I disable my monitor's sleep mode? I don't want the screen to go black, I want to be able to see the screen saver as it cycles. Thank you.


You can do this in the Power Savings options with Windows. For Windows 7, rght click on the display (anywhere with no icons or running programs) and choose Personalize. Click on Screen Saver in the lower right hand corner. Adjust the Wait time for the screen saver if desired and click Apply. Then click on Change Power Settings. This brings up the Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Power Settings. Then click on Edit Power Settings for the active power plan. (For desktops it is usually the balanced power). Then change the setting for Turn off monitor to Never when plugged in. Also change the Sleep time for the computer to Never. You can do the same for when on battery but it will shorten the length of time that the computer will be able to run on the battery for laptops. Then Save Changes and close the windows.

For older versions of Windows, these advanced power settings are also available from the Screen Saver settings page but details may differ.

I hope this helps.

My monitor goes to sleep and I would like it to stop. I can't figure out how to accimplish this. Karen


That's probably a Windows setting. For Windows XP:
1. Right-click the desktop.
2. select properties
3. go to the screen saver tab in the window that opened
4. check wether the screen saver is set to "None" If not, do so.
5. Click the "Power" button
6. In the window that opened, set Turn off monitor to never.
7. You're done!

For Vista and Windows Seven:
1. Right-click the desktop,
2. In the windos that opened, click personalize,
3. Click screen saver (bottom right)
4. In the window that opened, set the screen saver to "None"
5. Click "Change power settings"
6. In the window that opened, click "Choose when to turn off the display"
7 Set "Turn of the display" to Never.
You're done!

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

Monitor goes into sleep mode as I'm working on it. How do I shut off/


How do you shut off sleep mode? I take it you're using Vista, as XP has "standby:" mode rather than sleep. You first right-click the desktop, then click "personalize." from there, click on "screen saver," and then "change power settings." from there, look on the left hand side of the window and choose the option you want to change. Probably, you'll want to "choose when to turn off the display." Hope this helps,

SP2208wfp monitor goes into sleep during videos


Assuming you are using Win-XP, go into control panel, Appearance and Themes and Choose a screensaver. There should be an option below the screensaver choice to adjust Power Saver settings.

Computer asleep


If you go to control panel > display settings > Screen Saver > Power (win XP) or Control Panel > Power Settings (Vista).

This will allow you to turn off the sleep or change the amount of time until the computer goes to sleep or turns the monitor off.

Monitor "sleeps"


There are two places where the sleep time can be affected, both of which are accessed through the Control Panel that is normally an item on the Start menu.
Check the Display folder first and look for Screen Saver. This can be turned off completely or set to longer delays. The second, is the Power Options provided more for laptop users to conserve battery life but also can control the shutdown of your monitor.  Power Options aren't too important to desktop machines but the options are still listed.

Dell E178FPf LCD monitor goes to standby and won`t come on again


Check your Power options in Windows.

right click on the desktop. select properties, Gop to the screen saver tab, click on the power button at the bottom right and check to see if its set to turn off or standby the monitor, turn this off.

Keep the screen saver on and set it for like ten minutes.

Also, on the monitor itself, it may have a sleep or power save option set as the default. check all the monitor settings on the actual moniotr itself.
