Monitor stuck in Power Saving Mode.

Q: Monitor stuck in Power Saving Mode.

I left my computer running overnight as I usually do. When I went back to it this morning, it was stuck in power saving mode. When I rebooted, everything looked fine and the windows logo loaded but when I reached the login screen it went directly to Power Saving mode and got stuck there.

I am posting this from Safe Mode with Networking.

I have a Dell E152FP monitor stuck on power save mode . The light is yellow when you press any of the adjustment bottoms you get "power saving mode move mouse o hit any key" Doing this do not do anything any ideas . Video card ok try another monitor works fine.
 

A:monitor stuck on power saving mode

Does the monitor work with different computer?

Try this.
Turnoff and unplug the monitor from the power supply and disconnect the cable to the computer.
Wait about 2 minutes, plug the electrical supply back in, turn the monitor back on and let it run its selftest.
Hopefully this will reset the monitor and you will get the no signal notification.
Connect back to the computer.

My computer has been working fine ever since i newly bought it at least a year ago. I had a little accident the other day where water came in contact with my LG monitor and my wireless laser mouse. After letting them dry out for a few hours and reconnecting everything I tried to power up the computer like usual, to no avail. The tower powers on and boots up like normal but it seems as if there is no signal from the monitor. I can hit the power button on the monitor but when i do It says 'DSUB Power Saving Mode' then immediately goes blank again. I can't boot in BIOS either and I try to shake the mouse as to get out of power saving mode but that does nothing. This is my family's computer and I'm having no luck.. im pretty helpless at this point. The water damage was minimal.. if the monitor is able to display and power on then it should be fine right? One other thing i noticed is the mouse laser is gone. I swapped out the mouse and that did nothing. I'm not sure what's wrong here. Is it my monitor?
thanks in advance for any help given

I have a Lenovo, machine type 7747, IdeaCentre K330B. When I turn on the PC, the monitor displays Lenovo then displays power save mode. I took the Lenovo monitor to another PC and it works just fine. I tried a different monitor on the Lenovo PC and still get the power save mode. Even tried a different cable and still got the same results. Any idea as to what would cause this?

A:IdeaCentre: Monitor stuck in power saving mode - CMOS reset to correct boot failure

hi copiman,
 
Sorry to hear what happened,
 
This is not an issue with the monitor,
 
The computer is not able to boot fully.
 
The power saving mode is when a Monitor is not recieving any signal from the PC,
 
I believe that the computer stops working after the Lenovo Screen. REason why the Monitor goes into a power Saving mode.
 
Is this K330B Brand New?
  If yes are you plugging it to the right Graphics port. 
        Are you using VGA or HDMI?
     
 
 
 
Regards
Solid Cruver

Please can someone help with my new S2340L computer keeps getting stuck and says entering power saving mode. I have to turn off on hard drive as cannot seem to revive it any other way. what is going wrong. Brand new computer

A:S2340L stuck in power saving mode

Hi Joxfox,
The monitor may enter the power save mode when it does not get enough power for its operations.
You may try to re-seat the monitor cable and ensure the connections are secure. You may also try to swap the ends of cable or try a different good-known cable and check if the issue persists. If it does, as a last resort you may try to reset the monitor to factory defaults. For more information on this, you may refer to the manual of the monitor by clicking on the link below:
http://dell.to/YNLhL9
Once the system has booted to the desktop, please check the link mentioned below for changing power options. Since you have not mentioned the computer model or operating system, the link is for Windows XP.
http://bit.ly/14enMJq
Another possible cause of the same issue might be the video drivers of your computer. Please let me know the computer system model and operating system so that I may assist you further.
Please reply if you have any further queries.
Thanks and regards,Babita S#iworkforDell

The problem is after 10-60 minutes of gaming or a long time idling, my computer freezes. The monitor goes in to power save mode and won't wake up, so the only way to stop it is to forcibly shut it down. Whatever sound was playing skips, like if someone said "ahhhhh", it would loop "a-a-a-a-a-a" until i shut it off. The only things I have done was to check temperatures with speedfan, and clean out all the dust in my computer. The temperatures seem fine, and cleaning the dust out changed nothing. If anyone wants more info, I will post it. My computer is a little more than two years old. Heres some more basic info:

I came home today and found my Samsung Syncmaster 216BW in power save mode (blank screen, power button blinking) and it won't come out of it. I've tried everything I can think of, including trying it on my other pc and it still just flashes with no picture. Its not the refresh rate or resolution as these settings have been fine since I first installed it. I've tried rebooting and re-inserting the cables a number of times without any luck, and the power turning off/on and hitting keys does nothing. None of the menu buttons on the actual monitor itself do anything either.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Searching the net, others seem to have had similar issues with other samsung monitors.

I have a cyberpower pc with win 7 that i got a few months ago. It has been running perfectly until today. I was playing world of warcraft and all of the sudden everything froze and there was a sound like the audio got stuck like eeeeeeeeeeeeee. Since everything was frozen I tried to alt=f4 to get to desktop, wouldn't work. I hit the reset button and that didn't do anything. So I shut the power off, turned it back on, all the computer lights and fans came on but the monitor stays black and a box pops up saying power saving mode. There are also no lights on my keyboard. I tried unplugging the monitor and plugging back in, it stays the same. I tried a different keyboard and no lights come on it either. I have no idea what could have gone wrong with this, I play WoW nearly every day and have never had a problem. Hopefully someone can help. Since I cannot get into the BIOS or even to the desktop I can't give you any system specs. Hopefully I can look up any info you need. I am on another computer in my house so I will check back to see if anyone can start helping me. Thanks!

Hello,
My monitor randomly goes into power saving mode and doesn't snap out of it unless I turn off my PSU and restart the computer. It's very frustrating, especially since I just built my PC, and don't want any components to be damaged. 
This is the monitor I have:
E2414H (digital-DVI)
gpu : gtx 970

The drivers to my gpu and monitor are up to date. I have went through all of the windows power settings to "never sleep" and never turn off my monitor. The problem only primarily when I'm in a game, but has occasionally occurred when I'm on the desktop. I honestly think it's a problem with my monitor because my computer used to not do this, but I'm open to any ideas, and help with troubleshooting.

Is there a way to completely turn off power saving mode? I've read similar posts after Google searching and this seems to be a consistent problem with dell monitors.

Within the week, my monitor has started going into the power saving mode shutting down Windows so I cannot access Windows XP. When this happens, I get a message saying "Power savings enabled. The monitor will shut down in a few seconds." The problem has now worsen in that all I can access is the (F1) set up screen. When I was in set up, I also disabled the power management mode. I'm pretty sure it's not a monitor problem because I hooked another good monitor and my computer does the same thing. Then I thought it might be VGA card problem, so I purchased a new, compatible VGA card, installed it, and still the same problem. So I believe I have eliminated the monitor and the VGA card as problems. In set up, I can view the choices for "safe mode" and "normal," but when I try to go to either, I get the "Power savings enabled" message on the monitor screen, and I cannot open up in "safe mode" and "normal" mode. Any suggestions or help? Thanks!

I currently run Win7 Home Premium with a XFX HD4870 GPU. After adding a new hard drive to my system & re organized some power connections to increase airflow around my tower ive had a problem with my monitor sticking in power saving mode when i first boot up my system.
The monitor is a LG FLATRON W2243S. When i first turn on my system & monitor for the day, the monitor stops on power saving mode until my win7 desktop has fully loaded, but when i restart my system it activates from the off quick enough to show my GPU post screen before my board Post screen.

I swapped my monitor with the wifes & she plugged mine in hers & booted up this morning for the first time & both activated instantly to show the GPU post screens before anything else loads. But when i connected back my monitor after shutting down the system, i get the same power saving mode hang.

I know the monitor is not faulty or my GPU as it would of shown when i swapped monitors over to do the test. The only other possibility is my GPU at first boot isnt getting enough power to activate my Monitor strait away but im told thats not a likely cause being lack of power provided to the GPU, as i have 2 drives sharing the same lead that powers the GPU & i thought its struggling a little.

A:monitor is power saving mode

If you have a second monitor you should plug that in to the Dell that you mentioned. If it does not work you have a bad video card (or some part in the motherboard).

Is the Dell still under warranty? If so it would be good to call them and start getting a replacement set up.

Once every couple of days when my monitor goes into power-saving mode, it will not wake up, no matter what keys I type, or how many mouse clicks I do. My power-saving settings within Windows 8.1 is set to No hibernation or sleep, so the PC is running while my monitor is in power-saving mode. I need to do a manual restart on my tower in order to re-start Windows. I suspect the OS may have something to do with it.

There are no BSOD errors that I see.

I have a Dell XPS 8300 that randomly goes into power saving mode. It could be anywhere between 1 to 5 minutes before it does this. I know the monitor is working as well as the cable, so neither of those are the problem. I actually already paid Dell to fix the issue, which they did, but now it's back to the same problem I was having before, and they want me to pay again.  I am wondering if I need a new graphics card. If anyone could help me with suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it.

A:Monitor randomly goes into power saving mode

A quick test of the added discrete video card would be to power the XPS 8300 off. Disconnect the power cable from the XPS 8300. Lay it down and open the cover. Disconnect the monitor from the video card. Remove the video card. Connect the monitor to the onboard video HDMI out port or the onboard video VGA out port. Turn the monitor on, then the XPS 8300. If it stays on using the onboard Intel video, then the video card may be faulty.

Hello! A week ago the problems with my monitor started. It suddenly went in power saving mode and I couldn't do anything. I rebooted my computer and my screen was really creepy, like the one the TV has when it's no signal. I then rebooted in safe mode with networking. I uninstalled my graphics driver and installed again. I then did that again and installed another one, the one I have now. For a day everything worked fine and I thought my problem was gone, but it happned again and now it happens more often. At first I would see "ANALOG OUT OF RANGE 28.0 kHz / 53 Hz" sign when the monitor shut down, but now that doesn't happen anymore.

I have an LG Flatron L1960TQ monitor. I tried to change the screen resolution as I thought it might be a problem, and it seems as if when it's only 800 x 600 it works more than usually, but the problem still occurs. Another thing that happens when I reboot the computer after the monitor shuts down is that sometimes some lines appear on the whole screen. They appear from the start, when the BIOS message appears and don't dissappear until I reboot again (sometimes not even then). If I take a print screen they don't appear. When that happens most of the time the graphics are very low quality too, lower than they should be.

At the moment I am in safe mode as I can't turn it on normally. The monitor whether shuts down when the welcome screen should appear or when the Windows loads it freezes and nothing... Read more

Hey there,

Have you got a ps/2 keyboard and mouse that you could use?

If so, when the monitor goes to sleep, you should be able to wake it with these two connections because you don't need to install ps/2 connections. it automatically detects them on start up.

If not, I know this sounds simple, but try and just keep clicking and typing on your keyboard and mouse so that your monitor should not have time to go into sleep?

Try these and please tell me the results so I can try and help you further.

Hello, my problem happens only when I am gaming. Basically when I am playing a game such as the warhammer beta, I will go for hours and things will be fine. However, when there is a lot of movement on the screen, my computer stutters and my monitor turns all black then enters power saving mode. However, I can still hear the in-game sounds and my tower is still running. Turning my computer monitor on and off does not fix the problem. I have to manually restart my computer. I am pretty positive it is not a monitor issue. I believe the issue is either a faulty motherboard or perhaps a faulty video card.

My computer is mainly a 2000 dell with a replaced video card, motherboard, ram, cpu, and powersupply. When putting the motherboard in place (which is an Abit VT7) my brother forgot to put the copper bearings in the tower and just screwed in the motherboard. Flipping the switch on would produce nothing. Finally I discovered what he was doing wrong and placed the bearings inside. For years, nothing seemed to be wrong with my computer. Then, while playing counter-strike source and world of warcraft, I started getting horrible framerate and then the monitor would turn off like it does now, even though the rest of my computer is running fine.

I think that when my brother did not put in the copper bearings, he may have partially damaged my mobo and only now the problems of that initial damage are making themselves visible.

However, I read on another forum that the ... Read more

I recently bought a Dell XPS 8900 desktop and Dell U2414H monitor. After hooking the two together with a Displayport to Displayport mini, everything seemed to be fine. There was a signal and the display was on. I turned off the monitor and put the computer in sleep mode for a little while. When I returned and turned both systems on, there was no picture. Just a statement saying the monitor was going into power saving mode. I tried unplugging and replugging the monitor back in and that didn't work. I got the same problem after connecting the computer to a different monitor so I suspect it's the desktop. I also get the same problem using the HDMI port instead. The only thing that seems to fix this is by doing a cold shut down and restart of the desktop. Can anyone tell me what the problem is under these circumstances?

It does not wake up from the power saving mode. Even restarting the laptop does not solve this issue. We need to keep restarting multiple times and by chances it will be detected.

After restoring my desktop to factory settings and then rechecking to see if everything still worked, (it did....checked email and played solitaire) I gave it to a friend. When they hooked it back up and turned it on, the monitor just says power saving mode. Tried rebooting several times, moving mouse, pressing keys on keyboard, rechecking connections....nothing has worked. I am at a loss as to what is causing this. The computer is a 2005 Gateway running xp. Any help would be greatlly appreciated!

After hooking up a new monitor, Dell 2010H, and it not leaving power save mode, I tried re-hooking up my old monitor, but my old monitor wouldn't leave power save either; so I tried powering down by holding in the power button (because, of course, without a monitor I couldn't navigate to shut the computer down properly) and then starting it back up. I have also tried the power button on both monitors them selves and when I do the indicator lights come on and then quickly turn to amber--sleep mode I assume. Everything was working fine until I hooked up the new monitor.

I opened the tower to see how many memory slots I have available, and unplugged the monitor first. When I replugged it and powered up, I got a blank screen; the monitor buttons give me the message: In power save mode. Press any key on keyboard or move mouse.

Also, neither the mouse nor the keyboard light up.

I've checked all the connections and they seem to be fine.

I am running windows xp on a Dell Dimension 2300.

What else can I do?

Good day forum.

My LG D2343 is stuck in power save mode.

Tried different cables and my main monitor works fine on all GPU ports.

Reseated the ram and tried a different GPU.

Tried multiple restarts.

Hi there, my monitor is stuck in power save mode all of a sudden and my mouse and keyboard cant activate it. I know the monitor is good because I just tried it with another computer no problems. I have an old Dell Dimension 3000. Im thinking the RAM is bad on my computer because that is the only thing that i have changed in my computer lately and with my ignorance I bought some of the cheap no-name ebay ram.
Is there any signs to know it is the ram causing the video not to power up? The computer boots up as if things are perfectly fine, lights are on, fans come on, disk trays can open and close.....with my experience with bad RAM the computer makes some beeping noises and fails to boot up anything.

I would try my old OEM ram, but i dont have it available anymore. I plan to just try some new RAM but before I drop the money for it, are there any other possibilities of other things going bad? i dont have a video card, just on board.

I have also tried resetting the MOBO battery as well with no luck.

Thanks for any help.

The Dell 3000 has diagnostic lights on the back.. you should have all 4 green,, if there are any yellow then you have a problem and you can check the color code combination here for a possible answer.

My monitor is stuck in power save mode ever since i restarted my computer the other day. I've tried unplugging everything, repluging, and restarting. I was reading that sometimes the monitor wont get a power on signal from the PC if the lithium battery on the motherboard is bad, so i took that out. I've tried unpluging the RAM, starting it with just one stick, then the other and also starting the PC without either RAM stick in. However, when i did this it didn't beep like it should signaling that there is a problem with my RAM (because it was gone). I don't think its the monitor though because i can use it in digital with my xbox (computer is hooked up to the analog port.) I don't have another computer that I can try the monitor on in analog though.

A month or so ago my monitor started going into power save mode and wouldn't come out without a manual restart. I tracked down that it was happening only when i was using a lot of graphical power, so i opened up my PC and cleaned out the dust (of which there was a shameful amount) and put everything back together...problem solved. I think my graphics card was overheating due to lack of ventilation brought on by excessive dust build up on the cooling fans. Well now its doing it again, except permenatly and a restart doesn't fix it. I tried switching out my graphics card (nvidia 7950) with an old nvidia 5000 series card but that didn't help either. These are all the suggestions i've fou... Read more

Hi,

I have just moved my works PC to home and have reconnected all cables again but am having a black monitor screen, with orange on/off switch and not green.

At the back of the box the monitor cable has a male blue connector,, this is connected to another female blue connector then a larger white connector which goes into the box.

If you take the female blue connector/white connector off the the monitor displays the four coloured boxes for self test. When you replace the female/white connector it goes blank again in the power safe mode.

I cannot understand why it is not working and why it is going into power safe mode as nothing has changed and i am only 2 mins from work.
Can someone help as I am not brill.

Whenever I turn on my computer, the monitor doesn't turn on, but the computer does. When I turn on my monitor, it says "entering power save mode". Whenever I press any other buttons on my monitor, it says "there is no signal coming from your computer" and tells me to use my keyboard or mouse to wake it up and switch to another source. I've tried that, but it didn't work. I've tried unplugging it and plugging it back in, but that didn't work. How do I fix this?

Always include exact PC model and version of Windows in your posts.
Can you test this monitor on a different PC or a different monitor on this PC?
How do you know the PC turns on if there's nothing on the monitor?

When I start my computer, the monitor is stuck in power save mode. The screen appears blank until I hit a button that shows that it is in power save mode and can be activated using my pc. I can't activate it though. I tried unplugging everything, but that did not work. I checked if my video card was in properly, and it is. I tried using my old video card, but the monitor was still stuck in power save mode. I even tried using a different monitor and it was also stuck in power saving mode even though it works perfectly on my sister's computer. My monitor even works fine with her computer. I tried clearing the CMOS, but that didn't work. I have no clue what is wrong. It was working fine yesterday >.<. Any ideas?

Okay... I have a really bad feeling about this. Just now I plugged my headphones into the front jack and heard a bzzt sound and felt a shock in my ears. Immediately after that the screen went completely black. I tried moving my mouse but it didn't come back on. I tried pressing a button on the monitor but it says it's in power save mode and press any key or move the mouse but that didn't work... I'm guessing there's a really big chance I fried the video card there. Any way to figure out for sure?

Did you try using another display? Open your CPU and see if there is any burning smell. Check your PSU also for the burnt smell.

ok this is messed up--i own a dell 1504fp HAS digital/analog flat screen--since the day i have unpacked my pc i have always used my digital (DVI) connector for my monitor--

The most recent install on my pc was "roxio ez cd 6" after install was prompted for reboot and when my pc rebooted i had no picture! (took me a while to realize it was the digital) for when i pressed the menu button on my moniter it read "in power save mode-press any key on keyboard or move mouse"--but none of that works--

so for kicks i unwrapped and plugged in my analog cable and was able to get picture again--my power saving options are ALL set to "never" btw-- soooo it seems my digital output is gone!

Spoke with dell tech support and they walked me through unplugging this and that for an hour--but nada! So they are sending me a new video card saying this one "must" of failed--I for one will not believe this will be the fix!

Anyone have the slightest idea what is going on?
