Power saving modes are automatic for some LCD monitors some have setting like after 20 ,30 mins to an hour the computer monitor itself will go into standy saving modes like power led switch indication go to yellow led lighting or the monitor of the lcd screen go blank if ur computer have no pictures for displaying as a screen saver modes.Power saving modes it best for uses if ur computer it on all day long.If u don't touch the mouse or a keyboard the monitor will go in the power saving modes for less electricities consumption for less stress for the monitor electronic components for working to hard for the monitor not to malfuctions sooner or the monitor life cut too short because the computer it on all day.
No signal at the monitor indicates (if you know the monitor is working ok) a failure of the graphics chip or graphics card, The lack of indicator light on the num lock LED and the lack of power to the mouse would indicate that there is a major issue with the motherboard. you can try using another monitor to confirm the problem lies with the graphics, and in the case of the keyboard and mouse, swap them for a usb version, if they work, the Ps2 ports are probably damaged. I'd be thinking of replacing the motherboard
Hello sir, I have samsung 22in lcd monitor and nvidea fx5500 card. since last more than 6 months, my monitor goes blank If system remains idle (means I don't move mouse and don't touch keyboard) for 1 minute. After monitor goes blank I have to move mouse to brink it back to on. The power led keep on during this problem. I tried everything including power options in windows but could not fix it. Is it bios setting to be checked or could it be windows bug? Please help
Nothing to worry Just your LED has given way due to long usage. It seems you never switch off your UPS or power supply properly because you can monitor for yourself even after shutting down your red laser on the mouse will keep on glowing until you switch off the power supply to CPU. You can use your mouse without that LED also.
this is just an led burnout. lots of us think that these don't burn out but, they do in rare cases. to replace this, you will have to repackage and mail this monitor back to the manufacture for repair.
Try another (Known good monitor). Or try you're monitor on another system.
Remove all memory except 1 DIMM. Double check all data cables (internally) & power cables. Remove the added video card. Try booting the system. Watch for the case LEDs to flash/blink, listen for hard drive spin up /cd-rom spin up. Lastly pull the battery & check with a volt meter. Bios battery should test no less than 3 volts. Post the correct MD rev.
Check your Keyboard-Video-Mouse (KVM) switch. If the system is connected to a monitor, mouse, and keyboard through a Keyboard-Video-Mouse (KVM) switch, or console selector switch, then disconnect the switch and connect monitor, mouse, and keyboard directly to the system. If this solves the issue, please contact your switch manufacturer for support and compatibility on the switch. Some switches can have a firmware update applied to resolve common problems.
Note: BladeCenter Telco chassis - The KVM module contains keyboard port, mouse port, Power LED, Location LED, Critical Telco Alarm LED, Major Telco Alarm LED, Minor Telco Alarm LED and a video port. The PS2 keyboard and mouse connectors are standard 6-pin Mini Din. The Telco alarms mirror the Telco alarms located on the front panel of the media tray because they use the same signal lines. The KVM module allows the connection of a VGA monitor for system maintenance and control. The video connector is a standard 15-pin VGA. The KVM module is hot-swappable. It is docked into an edge card connector located on the backplane:
If you have your system daisy chained for KVM capabilities using the C2T port (e.g. xSeries 330), then you must flash the C2T firmware after flashing the system BIOS, in order for the mouse and keyboard to work. Otherwise, after a BIOS flash, you will lose keyboard/mouse capabilities unless you walk up to each machine and push the select button.
If you are using NetBAY Advanced Connectivity Technology (ACT) CAT5 cabling in your rack server, instead of KVM cabling, click here for ACT information.
Check for POST/startup errors. If you are getting a POST/startup error on the keyboard and/or mouse:
Verify that all items are firmly connected to the correct ports, and that the cables are undamaged with no bent pins. The PS/2 style mouse and keyboard ports look identical, but are not interchangeable. The mouse and keyboard must be attached to the correct ports in order to be recognized by the system and to function correctly.
Swap each item for known good units. If a new item works where the original did not, then the original component must be faulty.
If the keyboard works during the POST/BIOS screens, but not in the operating system, check software logs for device driver errors. Contact your software vendor for more support in configuring the I/O devices.
Check the F1 Setup error logs for system component failures or errors. These are found under Event/Error Logs. Troubleshoot suspect components further to determine if the hardware is faulty. If an IBM component is determined to be faulty, please contact your local IBM Support Center for warranty replacement of the part(s). Please have the Field Replacement Unit (FRU) / Customer Replacement Unit (CRU) part number and Machine Type, model and serial number ready.
Run hardware diagnostics. Replace any parts found defective.
Try cleaning out the PC. Clean the CPU fan, remove all dust build up within the case. Canned air helps a lot. Blow out the power supply too. When you are able to power up the PC, do you see the case LED's light up / flashing?
I'm keeping in mind that when you loose the video display you also loose the use of the PS2 keyboard & PS2 mouse. If the CPU is over heating the system will shut down the PC.
If you're system is still under warranty, please call Fujitsu. http://www.fujitsu-siemens.com/home/products/personal_computers/scaleo_p.html
You may need a new power supply, CPU or board. Sorry!
