    Power safe mode usually comes up when the monitor isn't getting anything from the Video Card. You made need another video card or make sure that the cable is securely connected and the video card if it isn't attached to the motherboard.

    Does it go directly into Safe Mode ? Have you tried pressing F8 when starting and choosing "start normally"?

    Did you want to reset your monitor settings through Windows or the monitor, or both?

After starting the computer start tapping F8 for advanced options, select " Last Known Good Configuration" with the keyboard and hit enter. If this does not resolve the issue than once again boot to the Advanced Options and get into safe mode.

Click on Start > All Programs > Accesories > System Tootls > System Restore and than click on next after selecting Restore Select a date which is in bold and on that day your computer should be working fine, after selecting the date click on next till the system starts the restoring. System will restart, Should work out.

If it's an older 2400 series and you suspect it doesn't have a good signal going to it, I would try the monitor on a different tower to see if it's the monitor. If it isn't, I would recommend that you try to disable and change the VGA card in the Dell, if possible to a known good VGA card.

Also, try wiggling the connections at the monitor and graphics card, if this applies.

Or else, it might be a lost cause for that tower.

Good luck on getting the Princeton monitor working with your Dell Dimension 2400 series.

I have a Dell Dimension 2400 series that is very slow & freezes.


It sounds like you might have spyware on you computer. The two iexplore files might be spyware. I am not sure about the teatime.exe file but there is a file called teatimer.exe which is associated with the SpyBot software. I usually recommend Webroot Spysweeper software to remove and keep the spyware off of computers.
If you have software such as SpyBot I would disconnect the computer from the internet (after you update the software to the most current definitions) and boot the computer to safe mode. Log in as an administrator and run your software. This should pick up spyware before it has a chance to load.

Refresh Rate, the reason why it works in safe mode and not normal mode is because in safe mode the system only loads the most basic and reliable drivers and sets the screen resolution and rate to their default values. In safe mode right-click on the desktop and go to properties, go over to the tab Settings and click Advanced. You should see another tab that says Monitor, there you can change your Hz, change it to something like 60hz to be on the safe side.

Monitor issue


Just sounds like the monitor cable is loose or bad or the input mode on the monitor is set wrong - set it to auto or step through the modes.
