When booting the cp is going to power saving mode
Unplug power sources for the monitor and computer.
Hold down the power button of the computer tower for 10 seconds, this will drain remaining from the motherboard.
Plug back in the power sources for the monitor and computer tower.
Power on the monitor first, make sure the monitor power button will turn green then amber.
Power on the computer tower.
Try to check if you were able to see the Dell blue logo just right after you power on the computer.
If you were able to see the Dell blue logo then do these steps:
1. Turn off computer then turn it back on then immediately keep tapping on the F8 key. If options will appear please select safe mode.
2. If you were able to access in safe mode the problem we have is the video card driver needs to be uninstall then reinstall. To uninstall/reinstall the video card driver. Once you access the safe mode go to device manager then uninstall the display driver. Reinstall the display driver using the CD drivers came with the computer.
3. If you were not able to access safe mode then try again step 1, when you reach the option screen then select "last known good configuration".
If all fails from these steps, back up your HD files by asking a local tech to use an enclosure to copy all your data from your HDD to a different storage cause this will end up reinstalling the windows operating system.
Just in case just right after you power on the computer and it immediately gave you the message entering powe safe mode then you need to re-seat the video card which needs to open the side cover of your computer.
Re-seating the video card ut's just like taking it out from the slot then put it back again, make sure it's properly seated.
