Re: Second monitor - 'power save' mode.
Firstly, you can try to switch the second with the first monitor. Secondly, use only the second monitor as a main monitor and check that if there is still a problem or not. It might be because of BIOS. You can check and update BIOS with your computer manufacturer.

Hi there. I had the same problem months ago when I try to play high end games like Sims 3 my monitor goes into power saving mode. I tried to check every possible causes of the problem. It could be that your computer is overheating try to clean your computer and check if your fans still works. Second it could me your power supply malfunctioning, maybe it does not meet the required power to make your game work. Last cause is your video card malfunctioning, what I did is to just buy a new video card and it works.
If you do not have spare power supply or video card you can go to a computer repair shop for them to check the possible problem that causes it to go into power saving mode. It can also save you money before you can buy a new one.
Hope this helps, Have a good day!
If the monitor goes into power saving mode as soon as you turn your computer on then maybe your graphics card is only half-way in and not secured properly. I would first recommend plugging in a different monitor if you have one, if it doesn't get any signal either then read on. I had this issue, basically a couple screws need to be put back in because they have fallen out. The graphics card was only partially plugged in and the computer would run but not "communicate" with the monitor. If you are unsure how to do this then I recommend taking a trip to your nearest IT shop, the job takes only about 1 minute so you should have your computer back quickly. Hope this helps,
Maybe you can update your video card driver. My wife notebook is connected at times to my DELL17" flat screen and ever so often it cuts off in the middle of something. I update the video driver and reset the monitor to factory settings and it's working like a dream.
I suggest, you use the menu buttons on the LCD and reset it ot factory settings, and possibly update your video card.
If you know how to open it up and get to the power supply you will find three capacitors 2-820uf and 1-330 @ 25vdc 105o.they will have puffed up tops replace them. FYI the monitor has a 3 year warranty.
I bet you plugged into the VGA output on your motherboard instead of your video card. I accidentally did this once myself. Look on back of the machine and see if there is more than one possible place to plug the monitor into.
If that's not it let us know and well try to find another fix.
