Q: Solved: Dell Optiplex 740 in Power-Saving Mode

Our Dell Optiplex 740 PC won't come on. The "power-on" button is blinking green, indicating that it is in the "power-saving mode". No matter what I do it will not come back on. The DVD will not open even. Unplug it and restore power and nothing happens but the blinking green light. Is this indicative of a power supply failure? Thanks

I have a dell optiplex 760and when I connected to the monitor it says power saving mode please help

A:Power saving mode dell optiplex.760

It means either the monitor is not set to the correct input, or the computer is not outputting the video. Edit: also bad cable.

How are you connecting the monitor to the computer, and is it set to the correct input?

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

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?

Left unattended overnight, my HP Officejet 4500 G510n printer goes dead, with"Power saving mode" displayed in the status window of the printer. The only way I've found to wake it up is to unplug the power cord and re-plug it after a brief wait. It's hard to believe that HP didn't provide some better way to wake up the printer, but if they did, I haven't been able to find it. Is there a better way?

Hi peeps,

I need some help.
I got a Dell Optiplex GX520. When I try to boot, after the windows logo comes on screen, the pc goes into sleep mode. This also happens in safe mode.
I found out that it had a faulty HDD. So I replaced it.
However when I try to start from Windows install disk it goes into sleep mode right after it shows de Loading Windows logo.
I tried to go in to the bios to load the optimized settings but when I press F2 to load the system setup the computer goes into sleep mode.

So basically I cant do anything to boot or to re-install Windows.

some other things I tried:
- check PSU with PSU tester: PSU ok
- boot without DVD station: still going into sleep mode
- boot in safe mode: sleep mode again
- last known good configuration: sleep mode
- swapped RAM: still same issue... sleep mode FTL

I cant test GFX cause its on board and theres no AGP or PCI-e slot on the mobo.

anybody got any ideas???

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!

Howdy doodles, here's one for you:

I have this PC I got 3 years ago, it's been great until now:

AMD Athlon 64 @ 2 GHz
2 gigs of ram in dual channel
Ati X1600XT video card
some seagate 160gb HD
420W PSU
LG L1750SQ monitor (17 inch)

Here's what happens:

-I turn on the power (press the button on the extension cord my pc components are connected to - monitor, pc, printer, speakers)

Monitor goes into standby as expected, speakers are on

-I press the on button on the pc and it powers up, I get a green splash screen saying A8R-MVP which is my motherboard, for a few seconds

-then it beeps once, it's a short, singular beep (I've read that this can matter) and winxp starts loading, I get the xp splash screen

-just as xp finishes loading and I'm supposed to get the first glimpse of that glorious microsoft desktop BOOM! the monitor goes into power saving mode (yellow LED)

However, the pc itself continues to function normally; if I randomly start clicking and pressing enter I can hear sounds from games and other programs, so the pc works

I've tried switching the ram around, removing the battery for the bios for a while, reconnecting the cables; I don't know what's causing it, this is a fresh OS install and it did happen a couple of times before I did the reinstall but it fixed itself and the monitor worked upon restart

Hi, I'm at work and appear to have wrecked my colleague's computer. : (

I printed something using her computer (mine is not hooked up to a printer) and then went to reboot the computer as there was a request from Microsoft to reboot, allowing updates to be installed. (I had postponed the updates until after I had finished printing.)

The screen went black and I got the message, "ANALOG POWER SAVING MODE".

I have tried turning the computer on and off; unplugging the computer (after turning it off); checked the cables to the monitor/power/computer; holding down the 'autoset' button on the monitor; holding down assorted keys on the keyboard and tapping F8 as soon as I turn the computer on, all to no avail.

The monitor is an LG Flatron W1942TQ. It's not my computer so I don't know which version of Windows it is running, though I'm pretty sure it's Vista. I have spent the last hour looking up "Analog Power Saving Mode" threads on Google. Most recommend checking my settings or BIOS...but I can't get the screen going. It would be great if I could get this solved before my shift ends at 11 pm (Mountain time)!!

Thanks much!

I just spoke with a very friendly Microsoft tech who suggested I unplug the monitor/tower cord, switch the ends and plug it back in.

This, sadly, had no effect.

He then suggested taking out and putting back in the video card. As this is a work computer and I am so NOT a techie I am now (two and a half hours after the beginning of this adventure) retiring. My colleagues will have to continue with this tomorrow.

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.

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:
Windows 7
i7 Processor 2.66 GHZ
9GB of Ram
nVidia GeForce GT220 Video Card
1000 GB of space SATA Hard Disk
And an LG Monitor W2353V

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.

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

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.

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.

This is causing me problems mainly when i boot from a cd to perform boot time scans or other tools & my duel boot system i can use as i cant switch between whatever windows i want as it dosnt activate u... 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!

When starting up computer (from being shut down), it was in Power Saving Mode, and nothing seems to be able to get it out of it. I have unplugged and reconnected everything, tried another monitor, etc.

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

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!

What started as a entering power saving mode error the system will now no longer boot (or allow a re-install)

I don't have all the specifics of the system, but basically HP Pavilion a250n; a decent (upgrade) video card; the other day the PC froze forcing a hard shut-down and reboot. When windows began reloading (right before opening desktop), the monitor would shut off and the message about PC entering power save mode would come on. The computer seemed to continue the boot (normal lights and beeps) with no view.
At one point I went into safe mode to check power saving modes (and video mode); all seemed OK.
The next reboot and I couldn't even get into safe mode
After several attempts, I decided that a system recovery was in order, which resulted in even further decay. Now the PC will not boot at all.
When I put in the windows disc to reinstall the OS, it starts the installation, then the computer restarts after a few short minutes.
I tried before to look on the hard drive, using another computer and it said it was damged (or corrupted). Do I need to reformat (using the other PC) before I can try the windows (XP Home) installation again or does that even matter?
I have never seen such an easy fix turn into a full destruction...

Hi there. I just finished building my new computer and want to install Windows 7. Unfortunately, my monitor seems to be acting up. When ever I turn my computer and monitor on, I get a black screen with a pop up that reads "DVI-D Power Saving Mode". Is there any way to get rid of this without having Windows 7 installed already? If no, how could I possibly fix this? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Here's a list of my specs...
Processer: Intel I5 2500K
Video Card: Galaxy GeForce GTX 560Ti
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB 1600MHz kit.

Motherboard: Gigabyte Z68AP-D3 & 2.0 Revision
PSU: ModX Stream-Pro 700W & 25A on +12V Rails
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB
Optical Drive: Internal/Gh24 LG Super Multi DVD Write 24x
Monitor: LG Super LED 23" EW234
Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit

OS should be irrelevant. Error messages on the monitor would indicate a hardware issue (ie: monitor, cable, video card).

Try swapping the cable. You could also test the monitor on another PC, that would at least verify the monitor (and cable).
