Re: monitor keeps going to power save mode

The settings should be the same as your notebook power saver settings or you will have to check extended monitor in your graphics card properties in control panel.

I have an asus v2225n that keeps blacking out after 5 seconds

Desktop or Laptop computer ?

WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. - rules

Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.

Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty

If its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail.

Even something as small as a faulty electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems

computers need all power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error.

Make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket

if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free.

Restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard

Check the VGA cable connection running from the computer to the monitor.

This cable must be completely inserted into both VGA connection ports, otherwise the video signal is not going to reach the display.

Disconnect the VGA cable from the computer and monitor, then look at the metal connectors on both ends.

If you are missing connection pins, the video signal is not going to transfer between hardware correctly.

Examine the power connection on the monitor.

If the monitor is not receiving power, it is not going to turn on.

Turn off the monitor for a few minutes, then power it back on.

Like other computer hardware, the monitor may not initially turn on correctly.

Move the mouse and press the "Enter" key on the computer keyboard.

If the computer is in sleep mode, the monitor is going to appear as if it does not have any display.

Hope this helps

LG Flatron Monitor w2361v turns on, but than says that it's in power saving mode.

It is not detecting a signal from source (PC or laptop). Check video cable by subbing in a known working one. If a laptop, you may need to use a function key combo - usually ctrl-F5 to force signal to external VGA. If desktop, then verify connections are plugged in and video card is seated properly. Good luck!

Need to confirm how to properly connect the computer cables to a Belkin Outlet Surgemaster Energy Saving Surge Protector (e.g. laptop power cord in the "Master slot" and the Dell monitor display...

Sounds like you got it right. When the Laptop draws power it will trigger the Surgemaster to turn on the monitor. The only problem you might have, is being you are using a laptop the power supply might not draw enough power to trigger the energy saving features.
These devices work the best when a tower PC is plugged into the Master slot.

The monitor is on power save mode and I can't turn it on?

Check that there is video going to the monitor by trying another monitor or trying your monitor on another pc or laptop.
That way you can find out if the fault is in the monitor/monitor cable.

My monitor keeps saying no signal

Please verify the following: 1. There is power going to all devices. 2. that all cables are securely connected from the monitor to the pc or output device. 3. that the monitor is on the right "channel" if you will. most monitors will have an imput button, usually right next to the power button. It often will look like a rectangle with an arrow going in it. press that a few times and that should cycle it between available modes such as VGA, DVI, Component, HDMI, etc. try each one see if you get a picture. 4. if this is a laptop try using the function key (Fn) and the key which below it in blue has pictures of screens on them. Usually F5/6/7. If none of this works Try a different monitor if you can.

How do i get my monitor out of "d-sub power save mode"

Turn it off. Turn it on, and it should go to "full-power", at least for a few seconds.

Then, connect it to a computer that is turned-on, but not in "sleep" mode,
so that the video-card sends a signal to the computer.

Try connecting a different monitor to your computer, to see if your monitor is faulty.

Monitor went into power save mode and would not come back on

If your monitor is stuck in power save mode then first of all check all the power cables connected to monitor and your CPU.
After checking the connectors start the monitor if it does not come back from power save mode then lets move towards to second step.

2 . First unplug all the power cables to avoid power shock. After unplugging the power cables open the cabinet and look for the video card on *********** board.

Take the video card out and clean it with a normal eraser.Rub it on the golden pins and clean it.
Place it again at its place.
Close the cabinet and then start your monitor and your problem will be fixed.

Thanks for using Fixya.
