Monitor goes into Power Save mode unexpectedly

This problem seems to be getting progressively worse. When I'm on the computer the screen sometimes breaks up, looking a little bit like I'm looking through a venetian blind with bands across it. The computer will freeze up and sometimes then go into Power Save mode. When I try to reboot, 7 out of 10 times it will go immediately into Power Save Mode and nothing I try gets it working.

    I thought my monitor was starting to go so I went and bought a new one...same problem. I turn the computer on when I need it and off when I don't. I checked my Power Options and all seems to be OK, there was nothing that was changed and this seems to be a progressive problem, i.e. getting more frequent and harder to reboot.

What are your settings in Control Panel, Performance and Maintenance, Power Options? Do you leave your pc on all of the time or do you turn it on just when you need it? If you are getting lines on your monitor, it is possible that it's starting to give out on you. Please don't try to fix a monitor unless you know EXACTLY what you are doing. It can be very dangerous.

    Is it possible that you have a virus? Have you scanned your system for problems? It appears that the problem is NOT the monitor, since the new one is doing the same thing. (Did you buy the same monitor?) Here's what I would do if I were you. I would back up my system and reformat the "C" drive and reinstall. Yes, I know it's a pain, but if this problem is continuing, then it's not the monitor, it's something with the pc.

Computer screen goes into "digital power saving mode"


You should be able to adjust the settings on the monitor to prevent it from going into power save mode, or at least to delay how long it takes before it goes into power save mode. Press the menu button and look for settings that might disable or change power save mode.

Also, does your desktop/PC display show anything before the monitor goes into power save mode? If nothing comes up, its possible that you have a loose VGA connection or that your video card/motherboard are defective in some ways. Try using a different monitor.

If the other monitor works fine with your computer, try changing/lowering the screen resolution. If in XP right-click on the desktop and go to Properties, and select the tab for display settings and adjust the resolution. If in Vista/Win7, right-click the desktop and select Screen Resolution/Display Settings and adjust it there. Then check and see if your newer monitor works on it.

If the other monitor also doesn't show any display, most likely the problem is either with your video cable or your PC's video card/motherboard, not the monitor.

Hope that helps. Good luck

My Dell E176FPc monitor seems to be stuck in power saver mode. There is no way to access the on screen menu. When the monitor is unplugged from the compouter, it shows a self test screen with 3 colored...


Try the monitor if you can on another computer and see if it stays in power save mode. If it does then the monitor is bad.

If you try the monitor on another computer and you get video then that means theres an issue with the original computer.

LG Flatron L1710S Monitor stuck in Power Save Mode


Try wiggling the Cord on the backside of the monitor.. Not the Power Plug Cord, The Other Cord that attaches to the PC. Do this once the monitor turns off , grab ahold of the cord about 2 inches from the back of the monitor, then bend the cord to the right, keep bending from the right to the left a couple times to see if your screen comes back, if it does, than you have a Loose connection and this sometimes causes the Symptoms you are receiving.. Hope it helps.
