Dell XPS 8900 to U2414H monitor in power saving mode after sleeping

Q: Dell XPS 8900 to U2414H monitor in power saving mode after sleeping

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 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.

I just bought a new XSP 8900 directly from dell.com. Plugged monitor (U2414H) to the computer using smal DP in port. As input source I checked Mini DisplayPort in the monitor settings menu. Constantly see "Entering Power Save Mode" even after reboot.
What am I doing wrong?

I have a Dell XPS8900 with a Dell UH2414H connected to a GForce 750ti by HDMI, using a mini HDMI convertor at the graphics card end.
More often than not, when I switch on the PC, the Dell logo appears, the PC boots, then the screen goes black.
If I launch games in full screen mode, the screen goes black.
Sometimes when if I get to a login screen for Windows 10, I login, then the screen goes black.
I've updated all the drivers using Windows device manager. All the drivers that I can find via the control panel have also been updated, such as the GForce experience drivers.
The only way that seems to fix this issue, is to switch the monitor off and on again, then most of the time I can see my desktop again. This does not always work with full screen games though.

Any ideas on what to check for? I presume the cable is OK. Testing it on other devices without issue.

Thanks

A:XPS 8900 with U2414H (single monitor)

Do you have any way of testing the HDMI converter?  I had a similar setup one time and the converter I was using went bad (and intermittent).   Not saying that is the problem but it is suspect.

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!

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 have seen many threads with different sleep/ power saving issues but can't find the right one for me so here it goes: the monitor seems to go into power saving mode when entering/exiting a game such as a game in steam.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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 just bought a Dell XPS 8900 with a Nvidia GeForce GTX 745 add-in video card. I also bought a Dell U2414H. When I connect the Dell-provided cable into the mini-display port on the back of the monitor and then connect the other end into the Display Port on the back of the computer, the monitor simply says "No DisplayPort cable.". I called Dell Support and spent almost 90 minutes on the phone with absolutely no resolution. Finally, I got a manager on the line and was told that my computer had a "add-in" graphics card and that the cable coming from the monitor would have to connect directly to the add-in graphics card. I asked the manager to send me the cable. He told me that I would have to purchase it myself, since it wasn't included in my original $1,600 purchase. He also made sure that I understood that I just didn't just need the cable. I also need a Displayport-to-HDMI converter as well because the NVIDIA card uses an HDMI signal while the monitor uses a Displayport signal. The two aren't compatible, apparently. The manager informed me that while the monitor does have HDMI ports, they're actually "HDMI MHL" ports which only connect the monitor to tablets and cell phones. Don't know why Dell never bothered to inform me that the add-in video card wasn't compatible with the monitor. Per the Dell Manager, in order to get my monitor to work correctly, I either have to remove the Nvidia add-in card and then connect the ... Read more

That does not sound right. Have you checked the manual? Buy a $10 dvi-d to hdmi cable. DVI is the same technology as HDMI. Like this CABLE from amazon
The monitor has this--1 Digital Visual Interface connectors (DVI-D) with HDCP
The card has this--
1920x1080 HDMI 2569x1600 DVI I/O Ports: 1xDual Link DVI-D 1xHDMI 1xVGA

Do not use the on board video when you have a discrete card. It will not work.

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?

I can add a few more details, but my problem is exactly the same. Trying to run chkdsk and monitor goes into power save mode midway through and wont come back without a manual reboot. The computer use to go into power save mode randomly a lot at various times, but after doing various things it seems to have stopped that. Can't remember what all I did but it seems like uninstalling things like flash and java and reinstalling them seemed to help. But it does it every time I run chkdsk.

Now months ago the computer ran great with no problems. Then one day the computer started making a crackling sound through the speakers and then a small pop sound. My office (spare bedroom) had a bad burning smell for a few minutes. I thought that was odd and something must have happened. Computer didn't go off or anything but obviously that was not normal. So I looked at it and noticed it was starting to get some dust on it. So I turned it off, unplugged it, opened the case, and blew some air in it to get all the dust out. Upon restarting that's when all the random power save mode crap started t... Read more

I have a new Dell XPS 8900 connected to a Dell U2413 monitor using the HDMI to mini-HDMI cable.  When I switch off the monitor (to save the screen and energy), the PC jumps into an unrecoverable power saving mode, shutting down all open applications in doing so.  The mouse and keyboard lock up.  The only way to restart the PC is to press the power button for several seconds (hard reboot).   This began happening recently.  What can be done to fix?

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

another thing to note is that if I remove the drivers in safe mode (I'm in safe mode right now) for the video c... Read more

Had some Dell 3040's rolled out last year. Have had 3 of them play up in the last few weeks.
User is happily using it, then the monitor suddenly goes black with message "Entering power save mode".
User usually has to power off PC, then finds sometimes they still can't get a display again.
I've seen this problem strike myself last week, whilst using it myself when investigating. Unplug and re-plug the DisplayPort (DP) cable *may* get your display back. Swapping a monitor *may* get your display back. Leaving it off for an hour or so *may* get your display back. Albeit temporarily.
Ok, I was told by Dell a while back to update BIOS and latest drivers, such as video, but that is not a solution.
Swapping monitors and the DP cable is not a solution (PC's do not have VGA or DVI ports).
When it did this to me last week, I replaced the DP cable and got my display back. But the downloads I was performing had stopped during the time the monitor was in power save mode, so looks like it's the mainboard at fault.
You run the Dell diagnostics and it doesn't find any hardware faults.
Dell have however, replaced a mainboard on one (or possibly 2) of them, and it still had the problem again.
It's rather annoying when you log this with Dell and the technician says they haven't heard of this problem before.
Anyone got a definitive answer as to why this happens. I am happy to gamble my life's savings that I will see this problem again this year.

I recently called Dell Support and they used Dell Connect to try to fix it. Yesterday, I got home and my screen was blank. So I turned the computer on and logged in. Within seconds it did the Power Saving Mode thing. Then I let it go until today. Now I can get on the internet but when I run games that I play, it still does it. When the Tech Support people were on the computer, it happened but they said nothing happened to them and I'm just trying to resolve this problem. For any further information, please ask.

it sounds like your games are using refresh rates or resolutions that your monitor cannot cope with.

The only way I can get my computer out of power save mode is to unplug it.push the power button ,take the side off tap the power supply with my fingers to discharge any static electricity ,then put the battery back in ,hook every thing up and if I'm lucky it will start properly ,I thought it was my windows 10 .but I have reinstalled 8 upgraded to 8.1 .but it still happens I don't think it's a monitor problem because it says power save mode move mouse or push any key ,well the USB ports will not pick up in power save mode ,I have made progress 80% of the time on a restart I have no problem any ideas ,I'm going to try Chris,s answer when it happens again,and that's power down pic,disconnect power cord from monitor,disconnect video cord from computer ,then go back in reverse to see if that will help .

A:I have an hp6-2326s desktop and a dell monitor 1702FP , power save mode

Correct, not a monitor issue. Possibly a computer video card, power supply, or motherboard issue.
* Disconnect the power cord from the rear of the computer* Disconnect the monitor from the computer* Open the computer* Disconnect/reconnect every cable going to and from the motherboard and the power supply* Remove/Re-insert every card, memory stick* Stand the tower back up* Reconnect the monitor to the computer* Turn the monitor on, then the computer* Retest

my dell monitor is stuck in ANALOG power save/standby mode. It tells me to move my mouse or press any key on the keyboard but this still doesn't take it out of this mode
 

A:dell fpt1704 monitor stuck in ANALOG power save\standby mode

have you tried specifically the space bar?
Check out your cable running from the PC to the monitor. Make sure it is plugged in securely to both the video card and the monitor.

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!

Hi,
What cable do I need to connect my old E228WFP Dell 22" monitor to my new XPS 8900 PC?  The monitor has 15 & 24 pin female connections and the PC has HDMI and DisplayPort connections connection.  And one 24 pin female connection for which I'm not sure the purpose.  Excuse my ignorance...
Thanks...
