Question about Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor
My dell 19'' flat screen monitor says it is in power save mode. The monitor light turns from green to yellow. It says to press any key or the power button, nothing works. On my cpu the numbers 3 and 5 are lit up. I unhooked the monitor cable and did the self check. It worked. I bought new cables. However, my computer is still in power save mode. Any suggestions
Do you see the POST info when it boots?
check the video cable and card and make sure there are no bent pins.
have you tried to boot to safe mode or vga mode?
In the Control Panel > Power Options -- what "power scheme" is selected?
What happens if you select "minimal management"?
it's possible the problem lies with the video card drawing too much load at the outset. Or the power supply has degraded and is not able to meet the current demands.
if there is an input selector on the front of the monitor have you pressed that? Also try using a DVI cable to connect to the monitor and vid card (if you can). Take the video card out and reseat it. After that i would consider trying a different video card.

A solid green light means the computer is operating normally.
A solid yellow light indicates the power supply is operating normally but the computer is not processing data.
This could mean there is a problem with the CPu or another component on the motherboard.
((A blinking yellow light indicates the power supply is receiving power from the wall, but not functioning properly.
This generally means the power supply itself is bad and should be tested or replaced.))
A blinking green light means the computer is in standby mode.
You should consider visiting Dell Support and downloading the manual for your
your Dell computer. So use the LED power light codes if your Dell computer has them.
hope this helps
