Question about Dell E228WFP LCD Monitor
I was on my computer when suddenly I moved the mouse, and my monitor screen became multiple colors (not the screen itself) after that my monitor displayed "Entering auto power save mode" and I couldn't get back to the original screen. There was no way to disable the power save mode.
I decided to turn off my computer by using the power button, and unfortunatly my boot screen was messed up as well. Letters were all over the place, horizontal stripes ran across the screen. Can anyone help? Thanks.

SOURCE: No display.
Make sure the proper input is selected
1: D-SUB for Blue VGA cable
2: DVI-D for White DVI cable
The option selected should be indicated on the power save screen.
If changing the input select and rebooting the computer have no effect an no video from the computer is ever displayed, then the monitor is in need of repair.

To your problem number 1:
I would check to see what the refresh rate is on your main monitor. Especially after waking the monitor from sleep, Windows tend to forget the refresh rate settings on secondary monitor and set it to the same as your main monitor. If your main monitor is set at 75hz or something, it could cause the secondary monitor to display the "out of range" message. When you reset the "extend my desktop to this monitor" setting, it probably resets the refresh rate to 60hz again.
This can sometime be remedied by checking to see if the monitor drivers are installed correctly. A lot of times the video card driver also gets in the way. I've had a lot of experiences with ATI drivers behaving very sporadically with multi-monitor setups, where they will consistently change to "plug-n-play monitor" and thus reverting any custom setting I have.
As to your problem #2:
I've had a fair bit of experience with this as well. The fact that the line shows the same way regardless of the monitor's own tilting orientation, means the error is probably coming from the video card signal rather than the LCD panel itself. This usually is a foresight of a nVidia card that's about to break.
I've went through many, many nVidia video cards over the years. They all inevitably break over time, probably because nVidia relies strictly on third party vendors... and to stay price competitive the third party vendors cut corners wherever they can. I always get the same horizontal line error over time as you described here.
The only way to know for sure, is to get a replacement video card, borrow one from a friend if you can, and see if the same problem still comes up. It's very possible for this to show up on only one of your two monitors. Try switching the monitor output as well, to see if the line now shows up on the other monitor instead.

You should make sure the cable is plugged into the video port on the back of the tower. Also, if you have more than one video card, ie an "onboard card" and another card that was added later, try alternating one to the other and see if the other one works. You can identify video ports by finding the blue pentagonal plug. It also will be the only plug that your monitor cable fits into (that is describing a VGA cable, a white cable is a DVI cable and is even easier to identify.) You might also want to make sure the video card wasnt jostled out of place. The final solution could be you have developed some bad memory modules, or the memory was jostled out of its slot during the move.

You'll need to troubleshoot a little. SOmething may be broken, but you'll need to find out what. 1: Try the monitor on another computer, see wether it will work on that one. If it doesn't, the monitor's broken and you're probably going to need a new one. 2: If the monitor does work, put it back, but now use another cable to connect it to the PC. If that fixes it, your cable was broken. 3: If not, you could try to switch the graphics card in the PC with another one. Do not attempt that, however, unless you know what you're doing. If you don't, get someone you know to do it for you, or take it to a computer shop. If the PC will boot with another graphics card, the old one is broken. 4: If not, it may be your motherboard that's broken. Repeat step 3 with it. These steps should fix your problem. If not, please post back here. Regards, Yannick.
