Hi. power save mode being displayed by the monitor could be caused by 3 things. 1)VGA cable to monitor is unplugged - check connections at computer and monitor 2)video card has been partially dislodged from motherboard socket. -remove computer cover and ensure video card is firmly pushed down into motherboard socket - do not use excessive force. 3)Monitor does not support video settings on the computer. - to fix on PC, turn on computer and press F8 button a few times during bootup - Windows will go to bootup screen - select SAFE MODE and hit enter. follow onscreen instructions - dont worry about weird colours and huge desktop icons - this is simply to get you going. Right click on desktop, select PROPERTIES>SETTINGS TAB. select screen resolution 1024*768 0r lower, select Apply or Ok. Now restart your machine
Im assuming the monitor worked OK until now. The two things I can think of is, First is the cable from the monitor to the computer is either not connected tight either on the monitor side or the computer. The second thing I can think of is a bad video card. I think the monitor is ok because your getting the power save mode on the screen.
I hope this helps you out, if it does please leave me some positive feedback.
You have to start trouble shooting with elimination. First try to connect the monitor to another computer with the correct cables then if that works, you know your problem is on the computer end.
If not, you probably have the wrong cable.
There is also another option and that is that the screen resolution from the graphics card is not compatible with the resolution of the monitor.
This can be changed in the display settings in the control panel of your computer.
Hmmm...Stuck in power save. I guess when you push the power button, the monitor says power save, then blanks to power save, no matter if the Computer is on or not. This means the monitor does not see any signal from the computer. I would suspect the computer first. Try a different monitor (borrow one). If the size of the monitor picture is too high and the monitor is an older LCD, you may have set the image size too high (1280x1024 will not work with this monitor and it will do this very thing). A broken or damaged connector cable to the monitor can also cause this. Was the monitor unplugged from the computer just before this problem?
The burners may have nothing at all to do with this. Try the monitor on another computer (a laptop will do) if you have one. If the problem perists with the monitor, then the moniitor has failed. If the monitor works on another computer, or you do not have another to try, then start the computer and tap the F-8 key to boot to safe mode. If that gets you a display, then fix the display settings, also check the device manager for any signs of hardware trouble, and make any corrections that may be needed, and reboot. If safe mode does not get you a display, try disconnecting the new hardware. If still no joy, I'd say it's the monitor.
I tried the following options and neither worked. 1) Hitting the monitor buttons as stated only got me a "digital" message and then the monitor went black as usual. Never got to any menu options. 2) Going into Safe Mode and changing the monitor settings or downloading/installing the correct driver didn't stick once you went back to the normal startup.
I didn't have another monitor handy to swap out so I had to be a little more creative. The only solution that worked for me is re-booting (F8 during startup) into the mode "Enable VGA Mode". This allowed me to go into the normal desktop with a screen resolution of 800x600. I went online, found the driver, downloaded it to the desktop. Deleted the video driver (Device Manager), installed the downloaded version, rebooted and....no problems.
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.
