Question about Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor
My dell 19'' flat screen monitor says it is in power save mode. The monitor light turns from green to yellow. It says to press any key or the power button, nothing works. On my cpu the numbers 3 and 5 are lit up. I unhooked the monitor cable and did the self check. It worked. I bought new cables. However, my computer is still in power save mode. Any suggestions
Do you see the POST info when it boots?
check the video cable and card and make sure there are no bent pins.
have you tried to boot to safe mode or vga mode?
In the Control Panel > Power Options -- what "power scheme" is selected?
What happens if you select "minimal management"?
it's possible the problem lies with the video card drawing too much load at the outset. Or the power supply has degraded and is not able to meet the current demands.
if there is an input selector on the front of the monitor have you pressed that? Also try using a DVI cable to connect to the monitor and vid card (if you can). Take the video card out and reseat it. After that i would consider trying a different video card.
