Question about LG L1918S-BN (Black) Monitor

Second monitor - 'power save' mode.

My second monitor has been stuck on 'power save' mode since I bought it a month ago.

It's not the graphics card, I've tried other monitors and they work fine in it.

It's not the power settings in control panel, I've changed them all to 'never' turn off.

Can I change settings in BIOS maybe? Which ones?

Thanks, anything will be helpful.

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.

Golden fingers of graphic cards are broken (URGENT)


It can be a lot of things, First what's is your system specs (CPU,Graphic card,HDD), Second What's is your power supply (how many watts). If your graphic card is too powerfull for your power supply the graphic card will burn.

For checking your system specs you can download cpuid-z or go to this website to know if your computer can run the game

My dell gx260 ligth come green if i turn it on but for a few mins time it turn orange why


Do you mean the monitor's power light starts green and then turns orange when you turn it on? Most monitors will go to a power saving mode when they do not get a signal from the computer.

The Dell GX260 has a green power light when on. When the computer is off, the light is off. If it is green and blinking, then the computer is in a power saving mode.

Diagnosis: start with the obvious: is the monitor cable plugged into both the computer and the monitor (if not permanently connected to the monitor)? Are you connected to the active port? (You can add a video graphics card in most desktops. The motherboard video port usually needs to be disabled to use the card ports. If you plug in the monitor cable to the disabled port, it won't work.) Is the monitor set to the correct input? (This applies if the monitor has several ports. In that case, there will be a Source or Input button on the monitor.) Is the computer on? The GX260 has the power button on the front. (Other computers have the power button on the top.) There is also the power supply switch on the back which needs to be on.

Next try a different data cable between the monitor and the computer (if you can). Try a different monitor. If a second monitor works, than the monitor has a damaged main board. If the second monitor doesn't work, then the video graphics adapter has probably failed. Replace the add-on card, if in use, then boot in the safe mode to remove the old graphics driver. Then install the correct driver for the graphics adapter.

Note: the computer and the monitor should both be off when you connect the cables. Then turn on the monitor first and set it to the correct source before turning on the computer.)

I hope this helps.

Monitor went into power save mode and would not come back on


If your monitor is stuck in power save mode then first of all check all the power cables connected to monitor and your CPU.
After checking the connectors start the monitor if it does not come back from power save mode then lets move towards to second step.

2 . First unplug all the power cables to avoid power shock. After unplugging the power cables open the cabinet and look for the video card on *********** board.

Take the video card out and clean it with a normal eraser.Rub it on the golden pins and clean it.
Place it again at its place.
Close the cabinet and then start your monitor and your problem will be fixed.

Thanks for using Fixya.

My HP W1907 monitor works fine until I try to play The Sims 3 game. I play for several minutes or hours and the monitor shows the message that it is going to sleep and the light on the monitor goes...


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!

Monitor turns on for less than a second, then off. I bought a 19" Samsung LCD monitor (953BW) about 10 months ago and the first time I used it, it would only switch on for a split second and shut down. ...


Although the OP was 2009. I had this problem.

I simply replaced the power board. Which I bought from ebay for $20AUD.
It was real easy to remove as well. Just have a look for youtube videos.

Fixed!

LG w2361vg sometimes get stuck in DVI Power Saving Mode


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.

Analog power save mode


Are you connect via Analog (Blue VGA connection) or DVI (White Digital connection?

If you are connected via DVI, then you have to change the input select button to DVI

If you are Connected VGA, make sure the system doesn't have 2 VGA ports. If it does, connect to the other port.

LG Flatron power save mode


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.
