Go to your computer manufacturer's support website. They will have links to download drivers for your system. They will include the video drivers as well.

If you see a message box that says "Power Saving Mode" after pressing the power button, then it simply means that the monitor/display is not detecting the computer. Check the connection/cable between the display and the computer and make sure your computer is not in standby mode by moving your mouse.From what you stated in your problem, you dont need a inverter or a bulb. If you have any image like the message box displayed then its working fine. It just isnt seeing any signal changes on the input and therefore goes into power saving mde. Try another cable or hook it up to a different computer to check the cable.

Start the computer in SAFE mode by pressing F8 repeatedly as it boots up

What you have done is set the resolution for the monitor too high on the computer

Try lowering it to 1024 x 768 to start with.

Change the resolution once you are in to safe mode

It goes into sleep mode if it does not get the video signal from your PC, or like you said, it may have power supply problem. We need to narrow down the problem first by trying this monitor with another PC or another monitor iwth this PC.
If it is the monitor problem, then you will need to do an in-depth troubleshooting, please read my guides first before DIY repair.

There are more than one inverter circuit for this model. One is prone to have poor solder connections in the transistors Q8 & Q10.
Another can be repaired by replacing 2 1uF electrolytic capacitors near the center edge of the board between the lamp sockets.

Have you tried connecting this monitor to another computer?

Have you tried resetting the BIOS? That should reset any problem the video driver for the monitor maybe facing.

LCD monitors use a fluorescent backlight system. A 15" probably needs just one. These are sandwiched on the perimeter of the monitor (usually under some tape that holds the lamp, reflector and other parts together. You need to order by length and width and get ones for your monitor size. Separate the panel from the bezel. Remove the tape, and separate the reflector (make a note of how things are put together) then you have to Dremel (or use another rotary tool) to remove the plastic to get the backlight out. (They are often molded into the frame.) Some backlights are sold without the wires. In that case, desolder the wires from the old backlight and solder them to the new one. Then put in the new backlight and reassemble everything. (http://www.lcdparts.net/howto/default.aspx) but for an overview: http://www.inventgeek.com/Projects/BacklightFix/overview.aspx Then push the new backlights into place, reconnect the wires and close up the sandwich of tape and other parts around the screen. Then replace it in the bezel.

Sometimes the inverter will fail but since you see the image that is likely not the case. However, you should consider testing the backlight with the inverter before installing it. (Unplug the old backlight (similar to a molex connector) (or desolder the wires from the old backlight and resolder them to the new one, depending on your backlight replacement), connect to the inverter and plug in. If it lights, you are good to go. Inverters can be tested with a high end multimeter (that can read frequency) or an oscilloscope. They cause an induced current which changes sign around the unit. Depending on the age of the inverter this can be 60 Hz or 50kHz. Hold the multimeter probes a fraction of an inch apart about an inch above the inverter. If a multimeter reads zero or near zero, the inverter is bad or the multimeter can't resolve the frequency. If you see a value or 1., then the inverter is good.)

I hope this helps.
