    I have a very similar problem, but don't understand what you meant by, "then run the repair console, do this from the SECOND prompt"...could you clarify for me? I can't get any kind of reaction from the keyboard, nor do I get any kind of prompt...

    (Pushing the power button causes the blue "Vaio" power indicator lights to come on, then the yellow HDD access indicator lights up for about 2-3 seconds then goes off. Nothing appears on the screen unless you press the button for the monitor, then I get a similar message to the one the previous poster sees.)

    So how does one run the repair console? I've tried inserting the recovery disks, but nothing new happens.

    Thank you for your help!

Hi, I dont like to tell you this but your problem sounds like you have lost your boot file on the HDD, this can be caused by a faulty file or a dead HDD, If you have your restore disk or a full version of XP then run the repair console, do this from the SECOND prompt and Windows will either tell you that you have no hard drive [dead] or will repair the missing boot file.

I have a Dell Dimension e521 desktop that has gone into energy save mode after I ran Norton security check.. Pressing any key or clicking the mouse doesn't do anything. The screen is black and says...


you may find you have the screen resolution set to high, try changing to 1024x768 and try again. if this works it means your monitor ain't up to the job of your better machines.

Stuck in analog power save mode. cant get passed black screen.


During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
or you might try
During the boot process tap the f8 button repeatedly this will boot into safe mode where the only things
working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer
hope this helps you

Dropped keyboard. Now display on monitor says 1. Analog input in power save mode - press any key or move mouse to turn on. I have done both, neither works. I have turned off system and I see it rebooting...


Hello,

the message Analog input in power save mode means that your monitor is not getting a signal from your computer.

Maybe you moved the video cable while reconnecting your keyboard? check both ends of your video cable.

If you have a DVI cable, then your monitor has to be switched to digial input.

I hope this helps.

Inspiron 530S Power Save Mode Loop


First you need to make sure that there are no other removable devices plug on the system, like usb, external hard drives, then if that will work try to go to the bios, press f2 when you see the dell logo, and go to the system setup, go to the boot device configuration and make sure that removable device is not the first boot device, if it is the first one choose hard disk and then second boot device ad cd rom/dvd rom and then disable the 3rd boot and the fourth boot device. Make sure to save the changes. And restart the system again. Once the computer is back and running try to go to support.dell.com and check the bios, download if there is a bios update for the system.

LG Flatron monitor remains in Power Saving Mode


Sounds like an issue with a memory card or pci card not properly in place. Try opening up the sytem, then make sure each card is properly inputted in it's slot. This may cause the the monitor to show power saving mode especially if the memory is not properly placed.
Thanks

Dell E173FP stuck in power save mode


Just had the same problem... what worked for me was simple. Unplug the cable from the monitor, hit the power button a few times until Dell screen poped up with a few color bars because it knew it was no longer connected to a PC. Then plugged the cable back in and all was fixed.
