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.

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

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

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?

I ve been looking and looking for a 350 watt psu that would fit my dell c521(slimline) and i havent had any luck. My dell is only 4.25 inches wide and i was wondering if there is a psu that could fit in it or an external power supply that would have at least 300 watts of power. And I kind of want to stay away from getting a new case because i've read that people have had some trouble with transferring all of the components. And i also need to know if there is any video cards that will fit my computer.

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!

I have a custom desktop, and a 2 year old Dell 1905FP LCD monitor, the monitor is connected through a VGA cable to the graphics card of the PC. The monitor has been flawless ever since i bought it until a few days ago.

My dad turned on the computer and the monitor was black, the power button on the monitor went from green to orange. I pressed one of the monitor buttons to see if it would do anything, and a message came up that says;

1. Analog Input
In Power Save Mode
Press Any Key on Keyboard or Move Mouse

...Only problem is that pressing keys on the keyboard and moving the mouse does not do anything. I tried pressing all the buttons on the monitor but it does not go out of this mode, i have tried everything and unplugged all the cables ect., but nothing works. The computer worked fine for years, and we didn't touch anything, so it's pretty weird that it just did this all of a sudden, is there any way to get out of this power save mode or any way to fix the monitor? I havn't been able to use my computer for almost a week now. Thank you!

A:Solved: Monitor stuck on power save

Hi KGR,

Sorry to hear about the monitor problem. Been there, contacted the manufacturer (in this case it was Acer). Their solution (and it worked!) was to literally unplug the monitor's power cord from the wall, and wait 30 seconds, then plug it back into the wall and powerup the monitor first, then boot the computer.

It didn't seem logically different to me, but physically unplugging from the power in the wall DID allow the monitor to reset.

Good luck, hope this works.

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.

This morning I came to my computer and it had a BSOD from my wireless adapter driver. This has happened a few times before. But when I turned it off and tried to turn it back on, it wont start! As soon as I press the power button, the lights flash and the fans get one jolt of power causing them to spin and die out immediately and then everything stops in under a seccond. What could be causing this? I did add a new new hard drive to my computer yesterday, but it has restarted fine a few times since then, and unplugging it didn't fix the problem. Other than that, I can't think of anything that is different that would be causing this. Any ideas?

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 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.

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!

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.

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.

Hello again everyone,

I am frequently uploading things to my website with a shaky dial-up connection, so I need to often check to see if the connection has terminated. Beyond signing up for broadband (I wish) or buying an LCD (ditto), what is the best balance between saving energy use with my monitor and extending its life? At one extreme I could simply turn the monitor off and on every thirty minutes or so to save energy, but I highly doubt that is very good for it. At the other I could just leave it on all the time to avoid power cycling, but that would waste energy.

My real question is: If I turn the brightness and contrast knobs all the way down so there is a dark screen (like it is off), what effect would that have on energy usage and monitor life?

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.

There are no BSOD errors that I see.

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

I bought a new processor and motherboard today. The Monitor upon turning on just remains in Power Saving mode. This problem occured before the purchase. Everything seems to be working. The monitor is fine, the HDMI input works fine I use it for my PS3.

The problem occured first when the computer crashed for some reason and I rebooted and then this just occured.

Thanks if you can help somehow.

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.

A:Monitor goes to power saving mode during windows 7 installation

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.

I really need help! It's been 3 years since I've been hooked up to the internet. I had Xplornet out to hook me up yesterday. After the guy left, I tried to hook up my Comwave for my phone service. Well, I don't know what I did, but my monitor went black. I turned it off and then on. The "Analogue Power Saving Mode" came on and then the screen went black again. Can anyone help me please?

I'm running Windows 8.1 desktop with 3 monitors. They are set up to show password-protected screensaver after 5 minutes of inactivity and then to turn all screens off after 30 minutes. It used to work great until ...

I installed Windows updates yesterday and noticed today that one of the screens doesn't go into power saving mode. It is weird because two other screens do. I noticed today when I walked into the room and saw this bluish glow.

I tried changing the setting in the CP under display to turn off screens after 1 minute and it still did the same.

Any idea how to fix it? Roll back the updates?

I have a new problem. My monitor has begun to blink repeatedly after coming out of power saving mode (when the screen turns off automatically due to inactivity).

I have no problems with this in that past. This problem just started out of the blue a few days ago. Initially, it would just blink once or twice coming out of power saving mode, now it might blink 10 or more times before the monitor stays on. Once the monitor is on, it functions fine. The blinking only occurs after coming out of power saving mode.

A:Monitor blinks repeatedly coming out of power saving.

Hey there, CSSteve.

Have you recently altered your screen's resolution? Often this can be the issue when it comes to blinking. I'd suggest booting in Safe Mode and adjusting the resolution back to the default or other appropriate resolution. Let me know how this goes. Good luck.

I had no problems whatsoever when I had Windows 7. However, after upgrading to Windows 10, I've gotten several BSOD crashes. I think I have a general idea of what's happening, but not why.
 
As well as I can figure, my computer seems to be crashing after going idle for a few minutes. I looked up "windows 10 bsod after going idle" on Google and found lots of threads that seem to describe the same issue, but I'll explain anyway in case there are any hints I'm not noticing.
 
I originally had the power saving settings set to turn the monitor off after 5 minutes and put the computer to sleep after 20. After the monitor turns off, the HD light shows the HD is being accessed heavily (because of automatic maintenance tasks?). But after a few minutes the light stops flickering and just stays on constantly. If I jiggle the mouse to turn the monitor back on, the screen is either blank or frozen, the mouse cursor is the spinning wheel for a while (I can move it around but that's all), I can't start Task Manager or anything, and then I get a BSOD.

Recently purchased a new dell s2716dg on amazon and a new Alienware Area 51 from dell. I have never seen such a complicated monitor in my life. I plugged it the dp, hdmi, ss wires from the monitor to the new pc and it is still in power saving mode. I've spent 2 hours trying to figure it out. Whenever I press the buttons on the
Monitor, I don't get other options only hdmi or dp input. About ready to throw this monitor out the window

You might want to re-post this in the Monitors forum:

Be sure to mention exactly which Area 51 you have, eg Alienware Area 51 R2, Alienware X51, X51 R2, etc.

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

Hi All Recently our company purchase a bulk of x1-carbon and P27h-10 monitors. However we are expericing issues when we try to connect the laptop back to the monitor after some time. 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. This happens only with the x1-carbon laptops and we have no issues with other brand laptops like Dell. Just to note we have already update the firmware and drivers for the x1-carbon. The Lenovo on-site engineer have also replcace out display ports and motherboard of the notebook but the problem still exist till date.
