I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Usually indicates that the monitor is not receiving any video from the computer.

If you have a graphics card in the PCI slots, with the default settings a new computer has, the monitor must be connected to a port on the graphics card -- the ports on the motherboard amongst the other ports on the rear panel are disabled. Lenovo graphics cards for ThinkCentres often have two DisplayPorts (DP), the sole VGA port is on the motherboard.

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.

I just recently connected dual TV P24 IPS monitors to my X1 Yoga (2nd Gen). The monitors are capable of displaying 2560x1440 rez. I have them both connected to the USB-C dock via display port.  One of the monitors displays fine, but the other won't display more than  1920x1080 and even then it continuously flickers. I've tried updating drivers, changing cables, etc.  Is the X1 Yoga not capable of outputting that resolution to both displays at the same time?

What could be causing the following situation- When restarting my computer (Windows 7 64bit) after the "starting windows" screen appears the screen will go dark and display "power saving mode". After about 60 seconds the computer will restart from the "starting windows" screen and complete the restart process. Once it completes everything the computer runs fine. Any help would be appreciated!

A:During restart computer enters power saving mode

Could be a boot sequence problem. Under the BIOS, make sure you're booting in the usual order (1. CD/DVD Drive, 2. Hard Drive, 3. USB, 4. Anything else). If that does not work, go into the BIOS and click the option to reset to defaults, save, and exit. If the previous methods still do not fix the issue, update your BIOS.

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 turned it on and a choice of regular start or safe mode or safe mode with networking, If I pick regular then it only booths as far as it plays a little tune the microsoft shows on bottom of screen. that is how far it gets. I turn it off if I turn it back on same thing happens. But if I unplug power cord from computer and plug it back in turn on computer then the safe mode screen choice come up. If I pick safe mode then OS vista come up on the screen. If I put the battery in nothing comes up not even a choice of safe mode.I did a restore didn't seem to change anything.

A:Computer Enters Power Saving Mode and Restarts with Error

any help?

I recently re-installed my computer with windows 7 Professional.
It works perfectly, but the only thing that bothers me is the power saving.

When I start a big game (like settlers 7, just cause 2) my pc goes to power saving mode, that leads to a black screen.
The pc freezes, and I have to manually restart the computer.

It only happens with big games (and my computer matches the requirements), not small games, programs etc.

I switch off powersaving in control panel/power options/change plan settings, but that doesn't solve the problem.

I hope someone can help.

Thanks in advance,

This happens whenever my computer encounters "Bootmgr is missing". After fixing up that problem, when I let my computer around 5 minutes, it goes to "Power Saving Mode". I have checked the settings at power management, and I never set my computer into that mode. I also replaced my monitor with another one, but it appeared the problem is still persist.

So, after a good's night rest, I was all fired up to go on the internet again (computer was on hibernate during the night), but sadly enough, it wanted to be an arse and not work.
I'm running a Dell Dimension 9150, can't get any specifics since I never bothered looking, and obviously it's a bit hard to go to run dxdiag when the computer doesn't even boot..
It's 3 years old.

Anyway, the problem, specifically, is that when I start up the computer, firstly the computer gets stuck in something (noise from computer doesn't change, it is silent) and doesn't boot (the first time i started it up I heard some fast repeating sounds, which, when I looked up, meant suposedly that there was something with the harddrive, but I cannot be sure on this, I might have misinterpreted the sound), and then the screen tells me that it is in Power Saving Mode. This is basically it, and it doesn't do anything beyond this point.

I've cleaned up the inside of my pc a bit (gotten rid of the dust), but i've never reseated a piece of hardware, so i'm not quite sure of the process. Also, I cannot quite tell which piece is which either. Simply put, when it comes to hardware I have absolutely no clue of what i'm doing. This is also the first time in my life that i've opened up the inside of a computer, so please understand if I cannot quite grasp what you're saying.

Also, if I posted this in the wrong section, please forgive... Read more

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!

LG L1960SR-BF 19" 2ms LCD MONITOR (Artistic Series)

I installed XP and Ubuntu and everything was OK. I could play Doom3, PES6, No One Lives Forever and Max Payne flawlessly, using the best graphic settings. But when i'm listening to music with Windows Media Player, the screen goes pink and all i see is cursor. But cursor changes depending on its location. It's shape gets different when it's on text, for example. The Media Player runs still, i can hear the music. And all programs (like IMs) work as they used to be. I use alt+f4 to restart my PC. The same thing happens everytime i run Media Player. I dediced to use Winamp then, and everything was OK.

But then some games weren't running good anymore. For example, Painkiller. I run it, the game begins, i kill some monsters and suddenly the screen goes black and then i see "Power Saving Mode". The music kept for a few seconds and then stop, and keys do nothing. Monitor's led turns blue to orange. Just like when the PC's turned off. Reset was the way to go. I trie... Read more

A:Power saving mode?

Hello ,

Have you tried going into safe mode & checking the device manager to see if you have any bad drivers ?

This may have danaged / corrupted you video drivers and they may need to be uninstalled , then reinstalled

Also , can you enter into the bios to see if the video settings have changed for your VGA / PCI

I have seen weirder things happen from a lose of Power or a Surge

And then again your Chipset could of been damage or corrupted & need reinstalled

These are just thoughts to think about

Try safe mode & the Bios first

I have an old gateway computer on xp platform that when it boots and trys to run the sofware then goes right into a power saving mode, then loops back around and will continue to do so. It gives me the option of starting nomaly or safe mode, either one continues the loop. Is this a hard drive failure or power supply?

A:Power saving mode

Hi ozzytrotter and welcome to TSF.

Is this a desktop or laptop. Can you give us the make and model and any other system specs you may know. If you are unsure what your specs are, download and run Speccy, then when it's generated the information (about 10 seconds) go File>Save Snapshot, and attach that .speccy file as well.

Could you also tell us what PSU (Powers Supply Unit) you have and what wattage it is. To find this out, turn off the computer and open it up and look for a label on it. It should tell you the make and wattage there. If it's a laptop, don't worry about this part.

Are you able to get into BIOS? If so can you try disabling Power saving mode.

Also, can you make sure that any cables from your computer to your monitor are correctly plugged in. Also, if this is a desktop, can you make sure that your graphics card is firmly seated and the inside is dust free.

Do you have another monitor you can try to use to see if it is a failing monitor.

After my computer sits for a while the moniter enters power save mode like it should but it won't come out of it unless I force restart my computer. I can't even press the power button once and wait for it to shut down properly, because it never will. I have to hold the button until it forcibly shuts down.

Then, after I start it back up and sign in to my profile, the screen goes black and it takes 1-2 minutes for the desktop to load.

I've tried searching on the internet and I've come up with "It's either the monitor or the graphics card, or possibly the cable connecting the 2." Well my moniter tests out fine. I bought a new cable. I bought a 250 dollar amd 6950. It worked fine all day yesterday, but this morning it was stuck in power save mode and did the same song and dance all over again. Can anyone guess as to what's up? (I hope it's not hard drive related because I'm on my 3rd one for this computer as it is)

I've had this Gateway 504GR for around 6-7 years now, sometimes when I unplug it or the power gets turned off on it, the computer will boot up and the monitor will say "Power Saving Mode". This only happens once every 3-5 months, and it usually starts working again after a couple days of going into power saving mode. It's been a bit longer this time around though and I'm not sure what even causes this problem. I reinserted graphics card and RAM cards, tried to plugging/unplugging different stuff. Tried hooking the comp up to other monitors (same results), using a different VGA cable ...

Hey, my computer started to go into ''Power Saving Mode'' 6 to 8 months ago. The only times I saw it go into power saving mode so far, was when I played 2 of my 6-7 installed video games(the rest work just fine). IT ONLY DOES THAT IN THESE 2 GAMES!!!!!! I can browse the internet, do whatever else, but in these 2 games(which worked just fine before but suddenly don't work without having the error after about 10-20 mins).

I enter the game, it lets me play for 10 to 20 minutes approximately and then the monitor turns black and then I hear a ''bzzzzzzzzzz'' in my headphones and at the same time I get the ''HDMI Power Saving Mode'' Error.

I have this computer and this monitor since about 2 years and the 2 games I play since a long period of time too. It just randomly started one day.

I tried lowering the graphics of my games, made sure I had the good resolution, changed my Power Plan to NEVER sleep or turn off. What angers me is that as I said, the game worked very well before and now I can't play a single match without that problem.

My specs:

Hello everyone!

So, since about a week my LG monitor has went into Power Saving Mode during video games. I'm not sure if it's only during video games because it might be coincidental. But Yeah, it goes into power saving mode and of course I can't reopen it. My PC is running but my Monitor isn't.

Sometimes it happens during very small intervals or sometimes it happens on long intervals. I am right now trying to install the Windows Update: ''nVidia - Display, Other hardware - nVidia GeForce GT 220'', but I don't know if it's going to help me or not.

I have Windows 7 Home Premium, a pretty good graphics card, a lot of disc space, 9GB of Ram.
Does anyone knows what I must do to fix this problem?

If you need more information, just specify what is the info you need and I will immediately give it to you.

Hope this helps someone. I had a problem with one of my monitors going into Power Savings mode.

Disable 'Monitor Off' detection, how?

A two year long thread describing this problem from a variety of users who have experienced this dreaded feature of Windows 7. I run the same monitors with DVI cables directly plugged into another box with Ubuntu, never had this problem. So the issue is definitely not the monitors. BTW, I am running Windows 7, x64, Pro, SP1, with Nvidea GT 220 graphics card. 2 Monitors plugged into Windows PC, 1 with VGA cable directly, 1 with VGA cable going into the VGA to DVI connector. The 1 going into the VGA to DVI connector seemed to be the problem for me, but as per the Microsoft link, other people had this problem with different setups, like DVI or HDMI cables. I did not create the solution, just want to pass along the info that worked for me.

I recommend you get an adapter for your cable of choice, then remove the PIN that is related to the Hot Plug Detected/Auto Detect/PNP functionality for the monitor.

In my case, one of my VGA monitor's was connected to a VGA to DVI connector going into my graphics card. I simply pulled PIN 12 from the VGA cable going into the VGA to DVI converter, problem solved. Monitor ... Read more

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!

Pressing the + button on the Dell E173 FP monitor brings up a message on screen " in power saving mode. Move mouse or hit any key on keyboard" - doing this brings no response. Eventually I tried holding in the CD eject button while simultaneously switching on mains supply - ( a friend sugggested this ) - and a normal power up followed. I have done a virus scan which showed a clean result. This problem has occured since I loaded a free route planner from a DVD which came with the March "Computer Shopper" magazine - but I dont know if this has anything to do with the problem.
Has anyone experienced this irritating problem? I tried many times to re boot - I am not sure the CD eject button routine works every time- I tried today after an overnight break & it did the trick.

A:Power Saving mode problem

power saving problem - resolved for now

The problem seems to have stopped for now - I removed all the connectors from the PC poweredon & off before re-connecting. So far it has not recurred. I still suspect something on the DVD started the malfunction - but I am not keen to try it again. I know these "freebies" come with all sorts of disclaimers , but it seems that we should be able to run them without running the risk of messing up the system. I only bought the magazine for the route planner & the review of sat. nav systems - seems to have been a waste of 4.99 !!!

My monitor goes into power saving mode on boot. I've tried to determine what the problem is but have been unsuccessful at narrowing the faulty component down.

Intel Core i5 3570K at stock speed
MSI Z77 G45A Motherboard
Mushkin 8 GB (4GB x 2) RAM
XFX R9 390 GPU (bought in 2016)
Dell U2414M 1920 x 1200 monitor
Corsair TX650W PSU
Samsung 850 Pro 256GB SSD (bought in 2016)
Western Digital Black 1TB HDD
Windows 7 64-bit (Fresh install on the SSD a few months ago)

When I start the computer the monitor usually says 'Power save mode' for a few moments and then goes blank. Pressing the monitor's buttons shows the message 'There is no signal from your computer. Try moving the mouse or pressing a keyboard key to ...'

Here is what I have tried to figure out what's wrong:

1. Plugged monitor into onboard GPU.
2. Used VGA cable instead of DVI.
3. Used a single stick of RAM. When I tried to use a stick in one of the slots, it gave me the 'memory has been changed' message and I went into BIOS to enable XMP. This has only happened once. I couldn't get the PC to recreate this. Rebooting after this caused it to again go into power saving mode. Also, when I try to dual-channel the RAM in slots 1 and 3, the computer keeps rebooting after a few seconds.
4. Moved the GPU into another PCI-E slot.
5. Cleared CMOS by pressing the button on the I/O shield.
6. Removed motherboard battery for more than 10 minutes.
7. Unplugged the comp... Read more

Sometimes in certain areas in WoW for example The barrens and the nexus, my monitor goes black and says 'Entering power saving mode'. I have had no other problems like this on any other games and ive played Fallout 3, Team fortress 2, Garrys mod and Portal. This problem only occurs when playing wow. I have lots of characters and it runs fine in most places but when im in some places it does it every minute.
My computer's spec is:
Intel quad Q8200 4x2.33ghz processor
Vista home premium 64 bit OS
4gb cosair 048-6400C4DHX ram
512mb Nvidea 9800 gtx+ graphics card
MSI p31 neo V2 motherboard
600w psu
case has 5 fans
cpu cooler
19" widescreen 1440x900 LG w1952tq monitor

ive read alot of forum posts with other users having this issue, people have said it could be down to overheating but my GPU has never passed 44 degrees centigrade. Others say it could be down to having a weak psu,
Do u think 600w should be enough to run my computer easily?
Others say it could be down to dust but the computer is about 2 months old and there isnt much dust at all inside the case.
Ive used the blizzard repair programme but it didnt fix the problem. does anyone have any solutions or things i could try?

Recently I've been having problems with my PC. I have installed Call of Duty 4 on the machine, and it runs fine. The graphics, FPS, and all that other stuff is great, it's just that after 10-30 minutes of play, the sound will lag, the game will stop, and the monitor will go black. The message


pops up on the screen, and there is no possible way to recover from this other than rebooting.

This has not happened any other time, except when playing CoD4.

What is the problem, and how do I make this stop!?!

Please help!

Anyone have any ideas what could get out from under this problem before I tear apart the machine?

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.

I've just installed Windows 10 on two Dell PCs. The Dell PCs are identical model and purchased at the same time - client wanted them upgraded from windows 7 to 10.

One of the PCs is having monitor trouble. Two monitors on an ATI HD 5400 graphics card. One connected via VGA D-Sub and the other via the DVI port (using a convertor to change from DVI to a VGA cable).

The monitors go into power saving mode showing a message that they are about to go to sleep - it is the same message as when you turn off the pc or pull out the video cable.

The screens blank, then the display shows on the other monitor. After a few seconds the screens blank again and the Pc returns to using both monitors.

so far I have:

Changed both cables
Changed both monitors
Checked physical connections are screwed in
Turned screen save to be 20 minutes plus
Set power saving to not turn off the screens

Set PC to maximum power

Done a windows update on the screen drivers
Downloaded the latest drivers from ATI and installed them
Checked resolution
Deleted and reinstalled the display driver
Logged in as multiple users
I've had the issue disappear for as long as 20 minutes and as short as every two minutes.

The PC was working perfectly under Windows XP ( yes they are licensed for windows 7 but software needed to be held at XP as there was no upgrade path for specialist software)

Display settings have been set at single colour background, no transparency, no power saving settings, no screen sa... Read more
