Re: no signal when turned on

Hi! Odhran
Not good to mee too, may be is your motherboard problem, or, just reset the CMOS on MOBO, be carefull on that, like Furion187 say, and try to startup your PC, if not work, you may have a power supply problem, time to change, or your RAMS are bad. take out one DIMM and try to restart, or if you only have one DIMM put it in other slot.
Good luck!

I have a dell studio 540 desktop, I need to restore to factory settings but my monitor will not stay open. It opens for a few seconds then immediately goes into power saver mode and turns off, how can

I see two things here, but need clarification;

1) Monitor goes to Power Saver Mode, then turns -> OFF?

Sure that monitor didn't go into Standby Mode?

2) Why are you performing a restore back to factory settings?
Pick up a virus?

The monitor receives a signal. A video signal. The video signal comes from the computer.

If the monitor is NOT receiving a video signal, then the monitor will state No Signal.
This is for older monitors.

New monitors do not state No Signal anymore.
It's Power Saver Mode, or Sleep Mode.

If the monitor is truly OFF, the Power On button will Not be lit up.
Or the Power On LED light on the monitor.

Monitor power on LED is lit, or Power On button is lit?

Monitor is not receiving a video signal;

Use a monitor cable from a KNOWN to be working monitor, for a temporary test.
Use a Known to be working monitor, and it's monitor cable.

Need to find out if monitor cable is good.

Monitor cable checks out good?

Then problem is computer.

The two leading issues with desktop computer failure, is;

1) Computer is dirty inside
2) Power Supply inside computer is bad.

Please post back in a Comment.

When I turn the computer on it goes into digital power save and windows does not load

The monitor is going into power-save mode because it's not receiving a video signal from your computer. Are you turning on the computer at the monitor or on the tower? If you're turning the tower on are you hearing any noise (i.e. fans running, beeps, drives spinning, etc.)? Does the power light on the tower come on and stay on? If not you may have a bad power supply or other hardware issue.

Have lg monitor flatron e2260 . Have had for about 3 weeks. Starting today, the monitor goes black and states "d-sub power saving mode". The tower stays on. Thx

1. Check the connections and make sure they are still tight. If the monitor isn't getting data signal it can go into power saving mode. Since it was working I would check this first.

2. Look in control panel under POWER OPTIONS and make sure it's not set to turn off after so long.

3. Also check the settings for your screensaver under display settings. That too could put it into poewr saver mode.

It could be a setting on the monitor itself that somehow got changed. Check out the settings to see if anything has changed.

Monitor goes into power saving mode when turned on. Doesn't go on when mouse is moved.

It's not on power saving mode, it does not sense that it's already is plugged at your VGA.
The only thing to test it out is to have another monitor/computer *to see which one is not working
But I'm pretty sure that it's a computer problem, Probably a VGA driver problem or a motherboard.
The best way to trace is to have another monitor/computer.

My monitor shuts down after one second.

Dell monitors automatically go into power-save mode after a preset amount of time when the computer is inactive. The Dell monitor will go completely black, instead of showing a screensaver. This doesn't mean that your Dell computermag-glass_10x10.gif has shut down. Instead, this allows your monitor to essentially turn off until it's needed again. You can change how long it is before the Dell monitor goes into power-save mode by changing your display settings.
  1. Step 1 Press any key on your keyboard or move your mouse. Either will turn off power-save mode. Alternately, you can press the power button on your Dell computer tower or laptop.
  2. Step 2 Press any key a second time if the monitor goes from power-save to stand-by mode. Stand-by mode allows the screensaver to appear.
  3. Step 3 Enter your user name and password into the login prompt if your computer requires a login. Press "Enter" to begin using your Dell computer.
  4. Step 4 Change the display settings on your Dell monitor to prevent your monitor from going into power-save mode prematurely. Right-click anywhere on your desktop and choose "Properties." Click the "Screensaver" tab and press "Power." Beside "Turn off Monitor," choose a time amount from the drop-down list and press "Apply."

My Gateway 500s monitor is stuck in power save mode

Try tapping the F8 key while booting the computer, you will get the start up menu, choose safe mode, when you log on, go to the display settings, that is right click on the desktop, properties, screen saver, advanced and make sure that hibernation is off, along with turn off disks or whatever , probably see turn off monitor after XX minutes, I make ours 15 minutes (150 computers and servers), I don't let the disks turn off. Choose always on also, not home/office. Try this and see if these settings help.

Computer monitor comes on for 1 seconds, flashes "analog power save mode" and then goes black.

Most monitors will say "Power save mode" when they can tell through residual voltage that the signal lead is plugged into a machine, but there's no picture being transmitted. The four states of a monitor are:

* Off entirely.
* Switched on, plugged into a computer but no video signal being received - usually displays "analog power save mode" or "digital power save mode" for a few seconds, then blanks. Comes back to life the moment a video signal is received. This state is the default in full power saving mode.
* Switched on, not plugged into a computer. Some monitors don't display anything, some go into power saving mode, some fly "CHECK SIGNAL CABLE" or a similar message around the screen. Picture is restored when the signal cable is plugged back into the computer
* On fully, receiving an image, and displaying.

Hope this helps.
