    Does the message come up right when you press the power button on your computer, when the login screen comes up or after you log in? Also, is it a message box that the system is giving you or is it a message that the monitor itself is giving you (like when it says No Signal Detected, etc)?

If you are using a desktop computer, chances are that you don't want the computer to go to sleep automatically. This is even more the case if you are running Vista in a virtual machine for testing purposes.
Disabling power management is simple and easy. First go to the start menu and click on the Control Panel.
Click on the System and Maintenance link

Then click on the Power Options link:

It will disable automatic sleep mode, but will still turn off display.\
You can click on change plan to disable.

If you are using XP than.

Open control pannel-> click on power option -> keep turn off monitor setting to never.

When i turn on it goes start to pc entering power saving mode


Are you sure it isn't the monitor entering powersave mode?
An unhooked monitor (especially flatscreen DELLs ) will go into powersave mode if it isn't getting a signal but is getting power.

First unplug and then replug your monitor. Both ends of the cord, the end in the back of the monitor (if it comes out at all) and the end that plugs into the computer.(unplug it from the wall first)

Reboot computer.

If that fails...(and you do have a video card)

Unplug everything from the computer, open the box, ground yourself by touching the metal frame of the computer case and reseat your video card....you may have to undo one screw to get it out.
DON'T drop the screw into the case!

Put it all back together and try again.

If that all fails Boot Windows (windows right?) into safe mode and change the power settings for the monitor...perhaps something got changed or broken by an update.

If that fails....

Get Linux.

On most Dell monitors there is a built in diagnostic check. Disconnect the VGA or DVI monitor cable from the computer and power on the monitor. If you see floating color bars then the monitor is not the problem.

I have a sylvania monitor model CL772B. The light is green and flashing after a power outage. The manual doesmnot describe this condition. There is no screen image. How can I correct the problem? If needed...


This seems to be issue with the Computer not the monitor. Check the monitor with different computer or you can check the monitor also. For this take out the monitor cable from the tower and turn on the monitor alone, if you get any message on the monitor screen it means that monitor is fine. Try this and let me know.

You may want to check the power supply fan whether it works properly or not. Also, you may need to check your BIOS setup if you had done anything with it.

Flat screen monitor functioning strangely


Sounds like there maybe bad caps on the power board in the LCD. Try a different monitor on your computer and if the known working monitor comes on with the computer and behaves properly then you know its a problem with your original monitor. If the known working monitor acts strange as well then you know its a problem with the video card. Let me know what happens.

How do we turn off the POWER SAVING MODE on the monitor screen?


Try going into your Start Menu then going into your control panel...then clicking on your "power options"....then switching the options to 'always on'..if this does not work..(as it seems you may not be seeing this because the monitor is in power saving mode) try fiddling with the setup option on your monitor and find a possible powersaving mode enabled function and disable it. every monitor is different so I couldn't really help you here...if this doesn't yield results try another monitor to see if it's the monitor having the problems or the computers video card...the video card could very well be the culprit...

NO SIGNAL What do I do?


These messages are normal when the computer truly goes into suspend mode or loses the video signal (such as when the computer is suddenly turned off).
If the monitor displays any of these messages when the computer should be displaying video , do the following items until an image from the computer appears:

1.
Ensure the computer is really sending a video signal. To bring the computer out of suspend mode: move the mouse, press the spacebar, and press the suspend button on the keyboard twice (the suspend button has an icon that looks like a quarter moon).
2.
Ensure the video cable is connected (and connected to the correct video port).
3.
If you are trying to view video from a set-top box, DVD player or similar device, use its menu system to set the proper video output channel so that it matches the video connection are using. For example, if the monitor is connected to a satellite receiver via a second HDMI connection on the back of the receiver, select HDMI-2 (or similar) using the remote control for the receiver.
4.
Turn off the monitor using the monitor's power button and then restart the monitor.
5.
Cycle the power on the monitor as follows:
1.
Turn off the monitor. The power light on the monitor should be off. Leave the computer turned on.
2.
Unplug the power cord.
3.
Wait 5 seconds.
4.
Plug in the power cord.
5.
Press the power button on the monitor to turn on the monitor.
One of two things happens:
1.
The image from the computer displays on the monitor and you can use the computer again. This indicates that the monitor was unable to detect that the computer had awakened from suspend mode. Turn the monitor off when it is not being used or disable suspend mode. For some computers, updating the BIOS corrects these types of suspend problems.
2.
The power light on the monitor comes on but the screen displays one of the messages again. The monitor is not receiving a video signal from the computer that it can detect and use. Continue using these steps to adjust the Windows display resolution to the Monitor's native (default) resolution.
6.
Adjust the Windows display resolution to a setting that is compatible with the monitor:
NOTE: The native resolution setting for your model of monitor can be found in the Monitor User Guide, the monitor's product packaging, and product specifications.
1.
Restart the computer and press F8 repeatedly after the first logo screen.
2.
Select Safe Mode .
3.
Windows should open showing a Windows desktop with lower resolution and fewer colors.
4.
In Windows Vista, click Start , Control Panel , and click Adjust Screen Resolution in Appearance and Personalization.
In Windows XP, click Start , Settings , Control Panel and then double-click the Display icon and select the Settings tab.
5.
Move the slider bar until the native resolution for the monitor is set, click OK and restart the computer.
6.
If the native resolution is not available from the slider bar, click Advanced Settings , click List All Modes (from the Adapter tab), select the resolution, and click OK .
If the native resolution setting is not available as a selection in Windows, you can temporarily use 1024 x 768 to complete these steps. However, you should update the graphics driver on the computer. Updating the graphics driver can provide more display resolutions to Windows; possibly including the native display resolution for the monitor.
*
Check for nVidia video driver updates at nVidia Home Page (in English).
*
Check for ATI video driver updates at ATI Home Page (in English).
*
Check for S3 video driver updates at S3 Graphics Home Page (in English).
*
Check for Intel video support and downloads, Intel Downloads (in English).
*
If you own an HP or Compaq computer, HP hosts video drivers and some video driver updates at the HP Software and Drivers site (in English)
7.
Connect the monitor to another computer that you know is working to determine if the monitor should be serviced or replaced:
*
If the monitor displays an image from another computer, you know that the monitor works. Troubleshoot the video connection and graphics adapter on the computer.
*
If the monitor remain blank when connected to another computer, the monitor signal processing hardware may be bad. The monitor should be repaired or replaced.
