Computer is stuck in power save mode. I have shut it off, on, pressed keys, and moved the mouse. It beeps 6 times and then won't come up.


What is the make and model of your computer? There are so many out there, it is hard to figure out your exact problem. Also - are the 6 beeps all at the same time, or are there any pauses in between them (i.e. 1 - 1 - 2)? If you can provide this information, perhaps we can find a solution for you.

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."

My computer(a dell) is stuck on save power mode


The reason your computer is in power save mode is because the little battery inside your tower is going dead. It needs to be replaced. It is a small battery about the size of a nickle inside your tower. Change the battery and it will solve your problem.

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.
