This is because your monitor is going into a resolution that is out of the capacity for your monitor. Try using a lower resolution!

Hope this helps!!

Have a Dell E228WFP monitor keeps going into power save mode.


does it go into power save mode with your actually doing something. Like for instance if your typing does it go into power save mode? If its going into power save mode when your not doing anything on it then its as simple as a setting either on the monitor itself or in the power settings within your computer accessible by the control panel and screensaver

My desktop monitor direct go in power save mode.so please solve it as soon as possible its urgent


power save mode indicates no input signal. Check the input signal with a known good monitor. if the signal is good then dell monitor is faulty. Power cycle (unplug the power then plug it back in) the monitor to reset to factory and if it still goes directly into power save mode the unit is faulty.

My monitor shuts down after one second.


Dell monitors automatically go into power-save mode after a preset amount of time when the computer is inactive. The Dell monitor will go completely black, instead of showing a screensaver. This doesn't mean that your Dell computermag-glass_10x10.gif has shut down. Instead, this allows your monitor to essentially turn off until it's needed again. You can change how long it is before the Dell monitor goes into power-save mode by changing your display settings.
  1. Step 1 Press any key on your keyboard or move your mouse. Either will turn off power-save mode. Alternately, you can press the power button on your Dell computer tower or laptop.
  2. Step 2 Press any key a second time if the monitor goes from power-save to stand-by mode. Stand-by mode allows the screensaver to appear.
  3. Step 3 Enter your user name and password into the login prompt if your computer requires a login. Press "Enter" to begin using your Dell computer.
  4. Step 4 Change the display settings on your Dell monitor to prevent your monitor from going into power-save mode prematurely. Right-click anywhere on your desktop and choose "Properties." Click the "Screensaver" tab and press "Power." Beside "Turn off Monitor," choose a time amount from the drop-down list and press "Apply."

In power save mode


The monitor is not receiving signal from the computer. Is the power light on on the computer? If so - press and hold power button on computer until the power light goes off, then press again to restart. If the computer starts and you still have no picture it is most likely a video card or motherboard problem.

In power save mode


I just bought my first computer. After the tech set it up and left I used it to become familiar with Windows. Then I did not have the time to reuse it for about a month. All I get is the same "power save mode" message on monitor then it goes blank.

Can anyone provide an answer as to why this occurred and what I can do about it? It's a barnd new HP 6130 Pavilion desktop.
Why do we need these machines if you can't control them? Nothing in the limited problem guide for the PC even addresses power save mode. HELP!!!!!!!
