The inverter power logic is probably going bad. You can get it here as well as look at instructional videos on DELL monitors.

My HP A735W is turning on but stays in power save mode and no key board or mouse function


I think the issue is your monitor. If the monitor constantly says Power Save Mode and not let anything else display then the monitor might be bad. See if we can isolate the problem by the steps below.

Try booting up in Safe Mode and see if the monitor works ok.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal. If it works ok in safe mode then the monitor is ok and we might have an issue with a setting.


Try connecting another monitor to your computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor works ok, then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does the same thing as your original monitor then the issue is with the computer (possibly the video card).

Monitor says 'auto detect, entering power save mode' and then goes black, moving cursor or buttons doesn't help


This is usually not a monitor problem.

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.

My monitor was going zigzaging in different lines with my color back ground going with the linesand then went each time it came on then had to restart it to make screen go back to normal then went all...


When you first power on the computer does the monitor work fine?
can you boot into safe mode? - Click Here for step by step to boot into safe mode.
If the Monitor works in Safe mode or works when you first power on the computer then it could most likely be an issue with your Video Card.
Try testing the Monitor on the laptop to see if it gives you the same issue. If it doesn't then you know for sure it the Desktop. I would most likely say its the video card.
If it turns out to be the Desktop, post the model of the PC and I can help see what other options you have.
