You probably mean "Safe Mode" -- it is a restricted-functionality version of Windows, designed to be used when trouble-shooting because Windows will not start normally.

Press the SPACE bar, or click on the 'OK'.

But, the big question is why is Windows starting in "Safe Mode"?
Just shutdown, and restart, and see if it will restart in "Normal" mode.

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron 530 I turns on and nothing happens

1.) If when hitting the power button, ABSOLUTELY nothing happens, no fans come on, nothing- You need a new power supply most likely. I see this all the time in my shop. Here's the bad news- Dell likes to use their own special power supplies, so a normal one may not even fit in the case. If that is the case, then I'm sorry to say Dell likes to charge over $100 easily for a new one.

2.) Fans come on, lights come on, but no screen. This can mean any number of things. Bad VGA cable (or DVI), bad RAM, bad mobo, even a bad PCI card. time to start troubleshooting. Change what parts you can, remove any PCI cards that are not needed, remove one RAM card then the other, etc....

SOURCE: Power Save mode on, can not use computer

If your computer is indeed running, simply unplug your monitor from the wall, and then plug it back in. This will bring your monitor out of power save mode instantly.

Hi Tomccaw,
In this case your monitor is working fine. Your system is going to power saving mode. To resolve that remove your RAM and insert it. It will fix your issue.

My monitor states its in power save mode.when i press any key,nothing seems to happen.


To bring the computer out of the power save mode press the "Windows" key once and release, wait one second, then press enter. The system should come out of power save mode. The Windows key is the key with the Microsoft Windows Symbol on it. Another solution would be to disable power management.
To disable power management, right click on the desktop, click on properties, screen saver, then Energy Savings Settings button.
Change all the settings to "Never", then click on "apply" and "ok". Power management has been disabled.

I accidently hit power save mode on the keyboard and now nothing with work on my PC...help,,,how do I get out of power save mode


It should come out of it when you hit any key on the keyboard, or if this doesn't work, when you momentarily click the power button on the computer.

Sleep Mode Lockup on Dell Inspirion 530 w/ Vista


Try hitting the "Windows" key on your keyboard to bring it out of sleep mode. The "Windows" key is generally found on the bottom row of the keyboard, near the Alt and Ctrl keys, and it has no letters on it, just the Windows logo. That key brings my Windows Vista machines out of sleep mode when other keys won't.

As for the power button, anytime you need to force a computer to turn off, you can press and hold the power button to do so. Usually, you need to hold the power button for 5-10 seconds and it will shut down. Use this option with caution, as it turns the computer off without running through the shutdown process and can cause you to lose data.

Hope this helps.

In power save mode


The monitor is not receiving signal from the computer. Is the power light on on the computer? If so - press and hold power button on computer until the power light goes off, then press again to restart. If the computer starts and you still have no picture it is most likely a video card or motherboard problem.
