Analog Power Saving Mode

I went to reboot my husband's computer and instead just turned off the power and now he can't get it to turn back on. When he restarts it, it will run for about 2 minutes and it say's something about analog power saving mode and then goes dark. He tried switching the monitor power to "never" but now if it does go past the 2 minutes the system freezes up. He's trying to reboot into safe mode and is having trouble doing that. Could it be the graphics card and how would just turning it off mess this up?

I need more detail. Can he get into an operating system (Like windows?) Does he ever see a picture? At what point does it freeze? Can he access the system bios?

More detail please

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...

Computer monitor comes on for 1 seconds, flashes "analog power save mode" and then goes black.


Most monitors will say "Power save mode" when they can tell through residual voltage that the signal lead is plugged into a machine, but there's no picture being transmitted. The four states of a monitor are:

* Off entirely.
* Switched on, plugged into a computer but no video signal being received - usually displays "analog power save mode" or "digital power save mode" for a few seconds, then blanks. Comes back to life the moment a video signal is received. This state is the default in full power saving mode.
* Switched on, not plugged into a computer. Some monitors don't display anything, some go into power saving mode, some fly "CHECK SIGNAL CABLE" or a similar message around the screen. Picture is restored when the signal cable is plugged back into the computer
* On fully, receiving an image, and displaying.

Hope this helps.
