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?

Primer;
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.
OR,
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.

Dell backlight indicators


A computer monitor has a front-mounted LED that displays its current status and flashes in the event of an error. When an error occurs, the flashing may be accompanied by an error message on the screen. If the screen does not display an error message, the problem most likely falls into one of four common categories.

Unsupported Display Mode A video card has the ability to send output to the monitor at many display resolutions and refresh rates. However, no single monitor is capable of supporting every possible display mode. When the video card sends an unsupported display mode to the monitor, the monitor shuts off to prevent damage and blinks, or displays an error message. Standby Mode b> When a monitor detects no video signal from the computer, it assumes that you have turned the computer off and enters standby mode to reduce power consumption. Dell and HP monitors display an amber light when in standby mode. The status light on an Apple monitor blinks slowly. Incorrect Power Supply Some monitors such as certain Apple Cinema and Studio displays use external power adapters. Because different power adapters may have similar connectors, these monitors are designed to detect when an incorrect power supply is connected and blink the status LED rather than attempting to turn on. In the case of an Apple display, the LED blinks in an alternating short and long pattern. b> Backlight Failure b> A flat panel LCD display has an LED or fluorescent backlight that illuminates the pixels and makes it possible to see the contents of the screen. If the backlight fails and requires replacement, the monitor is unable to display any information. In some cases, you may be able to resolve this issue by turning the monitor and computer off, disconnecting and reseating all cables. If the monitor still has a backlight issue, it requires professional service.

Problem for Acer Aspire M1641- PC Desktop


Hi I looked at your cards spec's its calling for a power supply of min 350 Watts,so I'd try replacing that.
here are your Spec's
GPU Clock MHz The main attributes of the GPU are the core clock rate, which typically ranges from 250 MHz to 1200 MHz in modern cards. 589 MHz Shader Clock (MHz) The number of pipelines (vertex and fragment shaders), which translate a 3D image characterized by vertices and lines into a 2D image formed by pixels. 1402 MHz Stream Processors Through the use of stream processing, computer benefit from the ability to transparently access a large number of 'cores' (or, computational units) on a chip without having to separately manage each and every one of them along with their associated busses, memories, I/O, etc. 16 Bus Type N/A PCI-E 2.0 Performance N/A Standard Memory Interface Bus (bit) The bit data rate between memory and the GPU. 64 Memory Type VRAM was typically based on DDR technology. During and after that year, manufacturers moved towards the vastly superior DDR2, GDDR3 and GDDR4. DDR2 Memory Size (MB) the video card will have its own video memory which is called Video RAM or VRAM. The VRAM capacity of most modern video cards range from 128 MB to 2.0 GB. 512 MB Memory Clock (MHz) The memory clock rate in modern cards are generally between 400 MHz and 2.4 GHz. 800 MHz Microsoft® DirectX® Support The standard for today's PCs and next-generation consoles enables stunning and complex effects for cinematic realism. NVIDIA GPUs offer the most complete implementation of the Shader Model feature set-including vertex texture fetch (VTF)-to ensure top-notch compatibility and performance for all DirectX applications. 10.1 Shader Model Support Enables stunning and complex special effects. Next-generation shader architecture delivers faster and smoother gameplay. 4.1 Open GL Optimization and Support Ensures top-notch compatibility and performance for OpenGL applications. 3.1 Minimum Power Requirement (Watt) This is the minimum power supply wattage requirement for the graphics card to perform properly. 350W Cooling Fansink Sometimes known as an active cooling device, a small electrical fan which drives air across a heat sink and as such will generate a small amount of noise. It is more effective than a heat sink alone at cooling. √ ROHS The RoHS Directive stands for "the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment". This Directive bans the placing on the EU market of new electrical and electronic equipment containing more than agreed levels of lead, cadmium, mercury, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB) and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) flame retardants. √ Profile Some graphics cards have the capability to swap out the current bracket to make it compatible with low-profile computer systems that require a lower bracket card.
