My monitor keeps going into power save mode. I thought maybe overheating had something to do with it but this morning when I turned it on it happened within few minutes of turning it on. I cleaned off the dust inside the computer and I'll probably switch to VGA from DVI to see if the plug is the issue. IF anyone has experienced this or has any suggestions please do tell. I've searched for answers through different forums and this question often seems to be left hanging?? Any advice from any experts would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

does it go into power save mode with your actually doing something. Like for instance if your typing does it go into power save mode? If its going into power save mode when your not doing anything on it then its as simple as a setting either on the monitor itself or in the power settings within your computer accessible by the control panel and screensaver
power save mode indicates no input signal. Check the input signal with a known good monitor. if the signal is good then dell monitor is faulty. Power cycle (unplug the power then plug it back in) the monitor to reset to factory and if it still goes directly into power save mode the unit is faulty.
If your monitor is going in Power save mode it can be cause by following reasons.
>Check the data cable going from monitor to your Dell Dimension 4600 Tower is connected properly.The connector will be blue or white in colour.
>If the Dell Dimension 4600 Tower is powering on.
If still in power save mode then try to shutdown Tower and monitor,disconnect power cable from tower and monitor.Hold the power button on tower for 15 seconds.Then again try to connect monitor and check,if still nogo,and if tower has no lights then issue with motherboard or video card or power supply.If possible try connect spare known good monitor.
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 computer
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
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.
any key a second time if the monitor goes from power-save to stand-by
mode. Stand-by mode allows the screensaver to appear.
your user name and password into the login prompt if your computer
requires a login. Press "Enter" to begin using your Dell computer.
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."
try to reconnect the cables to ensure it's properly plugged in (if you have another monitor, you can try it to ensure that your system is running properly)
If you narrow it down to a monitor problem, it's most likely the inverter/power supply board in the monitor.
If it's covered under warranty, you can send it back to Dell and they should send you a refurbed unit. If not, the board can be as expensive as finding a decent used monitor on ebay that works.
I had this problem as well as a lot of other people. The solution is to go to the power options in the control panel and turn power saver off. This should keep the monitor from going into power saving mode.
If the monitor is making the noise , the monitor circuit baord has gone bad.
If you have purchased the monitor on a seprate order from dell it would be covered under 3 yr warranty. If the same has been bought with the Dell computer , it would hold the computer warranty. would request you call the manufacturer.
Before you call Dell , you can try the following things
1. Disconnect call cables from the back of the montior
2. Press the power button a couple of times in the front of the monitor to drain any resident charge
3. Reconnect the power cable
4. check if you see the monitor self test running and if the noise is still there with there
