Hello, possibly you've got the resolution setting in 'display properties' too high for your monitor. Point your mouse pointer to an unused part of the desktop and right-click. Scroll down to 'properties' and select 'settings' then use the on-screen slider to select a lower resolution setting. Have a look at the spec. for your monitor to see what the max. resolution is supported by it.

Dell backlight indicators


A computer monitor has a front-mounted LED that displays its current status and flashes in the event of an error. When an error occurs, the flashing may be accompanied by an error message on the screen. If the screen does not display an error message, the problem most likely falls into one of four common categories.

Unsupported Display Mode A video card has the ability to send output to the monitor at many display resolutions and refresh rates. However, no single monitor is capable of supporting every possible display mode. When the video card sends an unsupported display mode to the monitor, the monitor shuts off to prevent damage and blinks, or displays an error message. Standby Mode b> When a monitor detects no video signal from the computer, it assumes that you have turned the computer off and enters standby mode to reduce power consumption. Dell and HP monitors display an amber light when in standby mode. The status light on an Apple monitor blinks slowly. Incorrect Power Supply Some monitors such as certain Apple Cinema and Studio displays use external power adapters. Because different power adapters may have similar connectors, these monitors are designed to detect when an incorrect power supply is connected and blink the status LED rather than attempting to turn on. In the case of an Apple display, the LED blinks in an alternating short and long pattern. b> Backlight Failure b> A flat panel LCD display has an LED or fluorescent backlight that illuminates the pixels and makes it possible to see the contents of the screen. If the backlight fails and requires replacement, the monitor is unable to display any information. In some cases, you may be able to resolve this issue by turning the monitor and computer off, disconnecting and reseating all cables. If the monitor still has a backlight issue, it requires professional service.

How do I keep my computer from going into powersave mode and crashing when I play games?


The computer is changing the screen resolution to a mode unsupported by the monitor. The "power saving" message is being generated by the monitor/tv not the computer. Check device manager and ensure that under displays, that you do not have "standard vga" I shall try and make a screenshot of what you need to look for or a youtube link.

I have a Jensen (JE1909ACB) 19 LCD TV Can't get it to hook up as a monitor on my desktop. It reply's unsupported mode.


Are you using the VGA port on the Jensen TV? What is your computer's OS?

The usual reason for the unsupported mode message is that the the computer did not recognize the TV as a monitor on boot up or that the previous settings were incompatible with the TV. (For example, if you previously had a CRT connected to the computer and used a refresh rate of 75 Hz, the TV can't handle the refresh rate. It needs to be set at 60 Hz.)

First turn off both the TV and the computer. Then turn on the TV and set it for the PC input (assuming you are using the VGA port). Next turn on the computer. If you have Windows XP or later, it should find the TV and set the resolution without any input. (If it doesn't, use a different monitor and set the resolution to 1366 x 768 and 60 Hz. Then try again.) If you used the HDMI port, try the VGA port. This TV doesn't understand a computer signal over the HDMI port (only set top boxes).

I hope this helps.

Monitor does not work when connected to desktop . if i plug it into a laptop it works


Most likely the display resolution set in the desktop is unsupported. Boot in Safe Mode and change it to something that will surely be supported like 800x600. Next boot normally and try to increase it step by step till you reach what you want - if by accident you select another unsupported resolution and the screen goes black just wait 15 seconds an the pc will revert to the old setting.

Adjust the resolution on your computer to one of the standard resolutions - 800 x 600, 1024 x 768, or the native resolution of the screen.

Unsupported Video Configuration Detected


Apparently you set a video resolution which your monitor isn't able to handle. Try booting in safe mode by holding the F8 key at boot, then change resolution to something safe such as 1024x768. Reboot in normal mode and set the resolution you're most comfortable with.
