Monitor goes into power save mode while playing games. Forced restart.

Question: Monitor goes into power save mode while playing games. Forced restart.

As the title states. Just recently my monitor has been going into power save mode while playing certain games. Not all games but some games. Which I am trying to figure out what the problem is before I take it to the shop. If i can somehow fix this issue myself that would be great. Since I really can not afford to buy a new system right now but will consider it if that is the case.

Before we get started I would like you to know the things that I have already done and still couldn't find a way to fix it. I do not think it's an over heating issue since I have ran programs to test my GPU temp and it seems fine. I tried the FurMark program and it shows that the temp is around 65 degrees. Which I was told that anything under 90 degrees is fine. I cleaned out the case so there is no dust in there anymore as well. I checked for any viruses and my pc is clean of any viruses. Lastly, I have also went into the power options menu and switch to high performance and changed the settings to Never on both sleep mode and turn off display but I still get that power save mode problem.

This problem just recently happened as well after I put in a new keyboard and mouse about a week ago. Not exactly sure if that caused anything though. I doubt it but could be. For the most part my system runs fine but just some games I play goes into power save mode and I am forced to restart my pc. Other times it automatically restarts my pc. I saw that it could be a dead battery on the motherboard that needs to be replaced or maybe that my graphic card is damage but I am unsure. So any help in this matter would be appreciative. Even if it means I need to take it to the shop to get fixed at least I can know what the problem might entail. Thank you for your time.


The PSU wattage is 300 watt max. Should not exceed 160 watt.

Preferred Solution: Monitor goes into power save mode while playing games. Forced restart.

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.)

Answer: Monitor goes into power save mode while playing games. Forced restart.

I had something similar happen while watching movies and it turned out to be a screen saver issue.

As part of my trouble shooting, I set the Power Options to never dim or turn off the display but the problem remained. Eventually I traced it to my screen saver which was enabled but set to "none" so the screen just went blank at the time-out I had in my SS.

Does it happen after a specific period of time or is it random? If it is the SS, the problem will occur at the time you've set in the SS. The clock starts after you last touch the keyboard.

It may be happening only during games because you're using a controller and not touching the keyboard. And it may happen only on some games and not others because of the way the game communicates with the computer; some games may disable the SS or periodically make a keyboard entry every minute or so.

Disable the screen-saver or set the time out at 60 minutes and see what happens.

Dell ST2310 monitor goes into power save mode after around 10 minutes playing a game from disc. The disc is still playing, I can hear it through the speakers. When I press the button on the monitor it says no signal is being received from the computer. I cannot get the screen back on and so need to switch off the PC by holding down the power button. This only happens when playing a game.
PC is Dell, windows 7 64bit i-7 CPU 4GB RAM.
Any suggestions?

Answer:Monitor entering power save mode when playing games

Could be the GPU is over heating. Check your card's fan is clear of dust and all the air flow grids on your case are also clear of dust.

I've spent a good amount of time trying to solve this problem, but unfortunately to no avail. Here's to hoping you wonderful people can help me out!

The issue is that, when I play certain games, they just absolutely freak out and crash. What'll happen is that I'll be playing, and suddenly everything on the screen will stretch and distort, while the sound makes that really loud stuttering that I can only assume is a sound being repeated over and over again. The game crashes, and when I get back o the desktop, Steam is messed up. If I have a chatbox open, all the test flashes green and pink, and the main store page is all messed up, with everything out of place and flashing. I usually can't open other programs, as they crash when I try. The only way to fix it is restarting my computer, and it goes back to normal.

The odd thing about this is the lack of consistency of this error. It can happen immediately, or an hour into playing. The issue happens extremely rarely in Skyrim (Graphics maxed), but I got it frequently when playing Terraria full-screen in multiplayer. Just to be safe, however, I'll list the games that I can remember having this issue with, and how frequently it would cause it to crash.
Battlefield: Bad Company 2: even at lowest settings, I can't get through a single multiplayer map without it crashing.

Answer:Graphics freak out when playing certain games, forced to restart computer

Hi and welcome to TSG.

My first thoughts based on your description is it sounds like a possible failing GPU.

A few questions to start off with:

1) What is the exact make, model, wattage and approximate age of your power supply (PSU)? Your voltages look OK in Speccy but it could be a problem when its under load.

2) What software are you using to monitor temps etc (I assume Speccy as you posted a report, but just checking)?

Your not quite up to date on the GPU drivers, there were a new set released about 2 weeks ago (v353.62, your running v353.30 according to Speccy) , however I don't think that is the problem, worth trying though.

Do you have access to any known working GPU you can swap out to test with? It doesn't have to be a gaming card, just something you can use that will at least start the games up and run them, even at low settings?

I sometimes get msgs like Your graphics accelerator has been reset. Its ok when i play games with basic graphics such as football manager. I am thinkin of gettin a new graphics card but might not because iv heard other people still get it with new carsds. I also dont know much about PC's so wouldnt know how to test the temps. If this helps when the PC boots up sometimes the Windows Xp logo is crackly. I av also tried formatting the PC and new drivers but nothin has happened. It only seems to happen when the screen starts to get crowded in the games. Any suggestions? Thanks

Answer:My desktop (M73 SFF) keeps power down and restart while playing games

Probably heat related.    You can monitor the temps using Hwmonitor or SpeedFan.    Your BIOS may have a fan setting, that you can adjust for better cooling performance (acoustic performance is the default.)   And check that your BIOS and drivers are up to date, using Lenovo System Update, including the optional ones.

Hello,I run an Edge E530c with the USB 3.0 Dock. This works fine until the notebook goes in power save. After resuming from power save the following happens:- If I click on any icon on the desktop the icon in the far left upper corner is always activated.- If I write any text in any application the cursors jumps to the left of the character, and any following character is typed to the left of the character before, i.e. I write from right to left. I cannot move the cursor to the proper position, neither with the cursor keys nor with the mouse. This issue is hilarious and kind of fascinating but completely blocks working with the notebook ! A restart cures this. Using the mouse pad and keyboard of the notebook itself works fine. This only happens with the USB 3.0 dock attached mouse and keyboard. Windows 7 Pro 64 bitLatest drivers via Windows update installed, also for the USB 3.0 dock. I searched all Google and did not find a similar problem description, far less a solution! Any hints from someone? Regards, Eckhard

I have bought a new computer with no OS installed.

When I connect the dell monitor to the pc via VGA, the LED quickly changes colour from green to orange and says it is in power save mode.

It can't be the graphics card (I don't think), because the monitor said the same thing with another computer, but for some reason when I plugged the VGA into my laptop, it shows up fine on the monitor.

I have the Windows 7 install disc I just cannot install it as I cannot see what I am doing.

Thanks in advance.

if you're getting similar results on varying computers, then I would start by checking the BIOS settings. seems to me that some computers are recognizing it and others are not. Compare it with working computers BIOS video settings.

I have a strange problem with my monitor (Dell P991). This morning when I turned on my computer (custom made: Asus A7V600, AMD 2700+, 2X512 GB Ram, 80GB Seagate HD, ATI 9200 Radeon 128MB) it displayed "monitor in power save mode activate with your computer". I disconnected the video cable, and the monitor self diagnosed OK. The power LED on the motherboard is green. The optical mouse red light does not come on, and I cannot see if the keyboard is detected. Restarting everything did not change the situation. I tried with two other monitors (a Samsung and a DigiView), each with its own signal cable. The Samsung did not display anything, and its on light near the switch kept blinking, as if in a power save mode. The DigiView displayed: "please check the signal cable). I know that these monitors are OK. So, the problem is with the communication between my computer and the monitors. I removed and reseated the video card and the Ram, but nothing changed. What might be the problem, and how should I proceed?

Thanks.

Do i need to buy a new graphics card to keep my resolution high or do i need to buy a new PSU (please new graphics canrd and not new PSU :( )

Answer:Monitor power save mode

Your monitor has a native resolution that should be used. You didn't state the make/model of your monitor, so there's no waying of anyone knowing what that setting should be. You also didn't list the make/model of your video card or PSU. In other words, you didn't provide enough info for anyone to be able to help.

Sometimes, my monitor will not come out of power save mode even when I hit any keyboard key or hit a mouse button. Its been fine up til now. In order to get it to come out of power save mode; i have to constantly and completely power down then power up; and i dont want to keep doing that as i know that can eventually corrupt windows files. I tried removing the monitor from device manager and let it re detect it; but that apparently did nothing for me. As knowledgable as i am about computers etc; this one has me stumped. What would anyone out there in forum land suggest? my monitor is just a standard run of the mill much older flat panel dell(19 or 20 inch approx.). I also have a wireless keyboard and mouse which also begs the question should i remove the mouse and keyboard from device manager and reinstall them; or go a different route. Thanks Matt

So about a week now I lost my dual monitor (2-Dell 1908FB monitors) capability. This is a company laptop (Dell Latitude D630 NVIDIA video card connected through a docking station and output to VGA and DVI) and they freely install updates and patches at will with no control from me, not sure if that is what caused it but one day it worked fine and the next thing i know i lose the DVI signal. I went through all the troubleshooting the cables, docking station, and monitor; conclusion was it was the DVI signal was asleep since the computer and monitor were giving me indications that they were being detected by the other but the monitor was still going to sleep. In all my searching I find a lot of people with the same issue but very few solutions (not sure if people figure it out and don't report back???)

...to get on with it. This is what has worked for me, so far...somewhere i came across a file "56.72_winxp2k_english_whql.exe", unfortunetly i don't remember where i found the file.

Answer:DVI monitor intermittently in power save mode.

Hi and welcome to TSG.

The file you have mentioned is a set of NVidia Forceware (All in One) video drivers for Windows 2000 and XP. The driver version is 5.6.7.2 and are actually quite old, they are dated 24 Mar 2004.

The most recent drivers I can find for a Dell Latitude D630 are here:

http://support.dell.com/support/top...plash?c=us&l=en&s=gen&~mode=popup&file=286482

These are the drivers for the Quadro NVS 135M display adaptor, is this definately the display adaptor in your machine?

I ask because there is also a link to a set of drivers for the Intel GM965 Express chipset here:

http://support.dell.com/support/top...plash?c=us&l=en&s=gen&~mode=popup&file=247781

If you actually have Intel graphics and are installing NVidia drivers this will cause problems and the displays wont work correctly.

I would recommend totally removing all previous video drivers before trying to install new ones.

I've had this problem before. When I start up my computer, the screen goes blank and the monitor says its in power save mode. I fixed this by reinstalling my graphics drivers. The whole fiasco occurred when I was updating my monitor drivers when Vista suddenly shut itself down.

Since then my monitor has thrown a fit whenever I restarted my computer (goes into power save mode). Yesterday I installed drivers for a new video card, and about 3/4 through the installation, the screen went into power save mode (I shut the computer off, started it back up, and everything seemed to work okay).

Today I tried starting up my computer and the monitor went into power saver mode. I could not boot windows in safe mode or anything like that, so I fear I must replace my monitor. I need help!

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 have a mesh matrix pc circa 2004-5 running xp.Lately, the (LG) monitor goes to power save mode after boot up, just before the login page should appear. I can make the monitor work fine if I start in safe mode. I have spent a lot of time looking at similar problems online, I have removed the computer's battery in the hope that this was the root of the problem. I have returned the computer to factory state but the problem recurs when the antivirus has to restart to finish initial installation. I have removed dust from the interior of the case. I left it alone for a couple of months, then fired it up today. Everything was fine at first, I had to reinstall Kaspersky cos my subscription had lapsed in the meantime. When the message came up 'restart computer to finish installation' I duly restarted only to find I was back at square one and the monitor is going back to power save mode after boot up at the same point as before.Any help much appreciated.

I usually Logoff instead of Shutting down my computer at the end of the day. Upon Bootup I first get an Information screen which reads:

"Monitor is in Power Save Mode
Activate Using PC"

Normally, all I have to do is to hit the Enter key or Space Bar and the bootup commences. Lately, however, nothing happens when I hit either of those keys and in order to achieve a bootup I have to turn off the computer and start from the beginning just as if I had shut it down initially. Any ideas as to what has happened and suggestions for overcoming the problem?
 

Answer:Monitor Power Save Mode Problem

I believe the message is from your monitor not your computer. Are you sure it is actually running? Have you tried putting a CD in and see if the HDD light flashes? If teh system is alive, the monitor is asleep and you haven't disabled auto insert notification the drive light should flash as it starts the autorun app on the CD.
Be sure and try a CD that launches by itself.

Ok, so... I turn on my computer (dell) and it's just a black screen. I press one of the buttons on the monitor and it says power save mode, click or press any key to exit, which doesn't work. But... i can unplug my monitor from my graphics card, take the graphics card out, and plug in the monitor to the basic input on the pc or wut ever, and it works. But I need it to be running with my video card, can any one help me out with some possible problems or solutions.

Thanx -mike

Answer:Monitor - Power save mode stuck

check bios to ensure it is set up to use the graphics card.

try gpu in another computer. try another gpu in your computer to determine if the one you have is dead or a problem with the motherboard.

If this has just suddenly happened then I don't know why, but you could consider disabling power saving altogether and simply shut down your computer when you are not using it.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

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.
 

Answer:monitor stuck in power save mode

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.

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.

When using a brand new Arbico PC with Vista Home Premium installed after a short period of use the monitor goes into 'Digital power save mode' and no matter what I try to do to get the PC to wake up using the mouse, keyboard or the power button, it does nothing. The only way I can get the PC back to life is using the reset button, hardly a good thing to have to continue to do regularly.I have checked all of the usual hardware features to ensure they are all set correctly and all appears to be fine, but still the problem persists.I have been told by the 'Techies' @ Arbico that this is a known Vista problem, so I wondered if anyone else knew of the problem and had any suggestions for a work around?

Answer:Monitor goes into 'digital power save mode'

Some time back while fiddling in the BIOS (AMI) I came across an entry in the opening screen saying Load high performance defaults. Having had a number of glasses of plonk & in a moment of complete madness I pressed enter I immediately lost all video output from the monitor, the PC still made the right noises during boot but throughout, absolutely no display was shown on screen, not even the BIOS screen.The monitor was in power save mode. To resolve this because I couldn't?t find the JBAT jumper to discharge the BIOS I removed the battery for 10 minutes refitted it, turned on the PC, hit delete, got into the BIOS and was able then to reset to the original setting with no further problems with the display. My question, can someone please expand on what happened, to explain why or how I managed to loose the video? The reason I now ask, is a friends done what seems to be the same, but finds it hard to believe that changing this setting could affect the video out. __________________MSI KT8 NEO-FIS2RAMI BIOS A6702VE5 V1.5B1 042104AMD 64 3400+Windows XP Home, SP1.512 DDR (PC3200) 2x256 Sony 8x DVD+RWSony 52x24x52 CDRWRaid-0 2x160 GBRadeon AIW 9800SE 128mb512 ADSLA Black boc a few fan'soh, and a monitor, keyboard, & a mouse.

Answer:What caused monitor power save mode

I did a similar thing last week with one of my PC's to see what difference it would make. Similar terminal result, however after BIOS did its thing I was left with a black screen and flashing cursor in the top left corner. It didn't even try to boot to windows. I quickly put things back as they were and all is working now. Can only guess that the result achieved by selecting the high performance settings varies depending on the other hardware installed. I suggest you go to the web page for the manufacturer of your motherboard for an explanation of this setting.

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.

I just bought a 19" Dell Trinitron Monitor to go with my recently bought PC and as i plug the monitor's wires and power-on the monitor, i get a blank black screen with the following message; "Monitor is in Power Save mode. Activate using PC." *Note that i didn't even turn-on the PC yet, i just plugged the monitor's wires. So i turn on my PC, and still get the same message. I know as a fact that the monitor isn't broken neither is the PC damaged since i tried them first before buying, it seems like the monitor and my PC aren't compatible together since i saw the Dell Trinitron work on another computer and saw my own computer work on another monitor. How confusing

Let me know what to do if you have experienced/know the cause of this problem.

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.

Answer:Dell monitor in power save mode

Try installing video driver again to see if that will fix it. Maybe the video driver got set to generic and so it no longer had HDMI support. The driver can be downloaded from Toshiba's website or the OEM of the GPU. If this doesn't fix the problem then maybe the HDMI jack got damaged on the laptop such as it was tugged when something snagged it and broke a connection with the main board.

Hello and HELP!Just unpacked a Dell Inspiron 530 I purchased in Jan. 2009 (long story). After hooking everything up, I turned it on. Monitor displays, just for a brief moment, just a flash really, AUTO DETECT (ANALOG INPUT) ENTERING POWER SAVE, then it turns black, and nothing I do brings it back on. This Inspiron only came with a VGA monitor plug. The flat screen has both a DVI and VGA plugs, and both the DVI and VGA cables. I plugged the VGA cable into the VGA plugs. I tried the fixes I found on this site: With pc on, unplugging VGA cable from both pc and monitor, plug back in. Disconnecting power plug from monitor, plugging back in. Upon booting, pressing F6 key. Nothing. Nothing. Nothing. It's past warranty. I noticed when the monitor is not plugged into the pc and I turn it on, it still flashes the AUTO DETECT (ANALOG INPUT) ENTERING POWER SAVE message, and shuts down. Could the cable be bad? Could the video card be bad? Could the video card be set to DVI? I can't even get into and see the BIOS, blind without visual. The speakers are in the monitor, and no sound is coming from them. Don't know if Windows (Vista) is even launching. Any suggestions?

Hello, I have a homebrew computer that has an Acer H233H monitor w/DVI connection, EVGA nVidia GTS 250 video card and Windows 7.

Check your M/B manual for BIOS power-saving settings, CPU Intel C-State Tech settings, etc. These settings have additional power plans besides Windows.After you change power plan settings in Windows, you may have to restart ( highly unlikely ) Windows for the changes to take effect.RegardsSuatCINI

Hey again.
I went to do something on my desktop (play sims as a stress-buster, I think). The tower was on, screen off, so I jiggled the mouse to wake my screen up...and got nothing. I tickled the keyboard. Nope...nothing. Pressed the settings button and got a message telling me to do...what I've already done.
Turned Monitor off...then on.
Rebooted the computer
Screamed at it...checked cords
Swore like a sailor...switched monitors (including power cord)
Gave it the evil eye...Swapped out VGA cords.
Thought about using HDMI to plug into TV....realized that desktop does not have HDMI and the VGA cord is not long enough.
Walked away to avoid turning into the Hulk.

I am thinking that the graphics card has given its last. I have eliminated the VGA cable and power supply to monitor as suspects. The cords were secure and fully plugged in. A desk light that shares the power strip showed no problems.

Located specs on HP's website, realized that I could have dual monitors (melyogi/mom is not convinced that this is entirely necessary...anyway)

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?

Hello, I have a dell XPS 420 using windows 7.  The computer hasn't given me any real problems a few weeks ago it had trouble booting up and went to system restore to fix any issues it may have had.  After that it booted and shut down up perfectly fine with no problems.  It was unplugged a few days ago while I was moving and was plugged back up yesterday when the monitor displayed the "entering power save mode."  I've tried swapping monitors, holding the power button down while the computers unplugged, removing/putting the graphics card back in, and trying different cables.  There are no beeps and the diagnostic lights aren't lit up to show if there are any issues.  You can hear the computer loading to the windows login screen.  The power button lights up blue and the miniview displays welcome and has the slideshow screen.  I tried taking the CMOS battery out and tried booting that way since I was told that it shouldn't keep it from booting up, but I get a message that says system low on voltage and it doesn't start.  I'm not sure if it's a power supply, graphics card, or motherboard issue.  Can a graphics card just go out without warning?  It's only about 2 years old.  Thanks for your help! Here is a list of my system components.PROCESSOR, Q6600, 2.4, 8MB, CDKE, G0DN0041Assembly, Heatsink, PRFMC Shroud, MATRIX TANK DESKTOPKR4901ASSEMBLY, CHASSIS, PWA INTEGRATED, 375W,... Read more

Answer:my monitor stay in power save mode after long idle only

Greetings, ELMassry.

Don't know your operating system/service pack #, but most power options are similar. I'd suggest drilling down into your power settings, and resetting everything to 'Always On' for troubleshooting purposes, see if your symptoms change.

You might also want to make sure the monitor itself has no power saving shutdown features.

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.

Problem:
So I've been having this believably frustrating issue with my graphics card (named below) where it would send the monitor into power save mode when starting up my PC (specs below). I used to get it on when I got it, approx. a year ago, by turning the PC on followed by the monitor at different time intervals. Turning both on at the same time didn't seem to work. Then I read that pressing F5 worked on boot so I tried that and it worked first time. From then on I basically spammed F5 on very boot with some taking 1 try and others taking 5-7 tries to get the monitor working. Now that doesn't work at all anymore. Everything in the PC works fine, including the graphics card. The card has worked before but only sometimes, which is the frustrating thing. All the fans spin up on the card and there's even a green light. Everything is grand, I've even logged onto windows before by typing my password (windows sounds and stuff). Plugging my DVI into the onboard graphics works no problem. Monitor works first time every time, no issues.
What I've Already Tried:
I've tried a different monitor and DVI cable with same results. I've tried a HDMI cable. I can't try a VGA as the graphics card doesn't have a VGA slot. I've re-seated the card and the RAM several times, worked maybe once or twice. I've changed windows power plans and changed things int the BIOS. One time, quite recently, after changing setting in the BIOS, things worked immediately after reconnecting the card. This leads m... Read more

Answer:ASUS R7 Graphics Card Causes Monitor to go into Power Save Mode

Sounds like an issue with the driver & utilities.
First Thing: Try downloading the latest driver and utilities (according to your OS) from click here & install them.
Well, you need to have access to an alternate monitor for installing the drivers and utilities.
2nd Thing: Additionally, a six pin PCIe power is always a need to run this uninterrupted and I'm not sure about the Power Supply you are using.

Hello, My dell monitors will not function as secondary monitors for my lenovo X1.With another X1 they perform ok. All monitors (I have tested 5 so far), fail in the same way, they go into "Entering power save" mode on power up when connected to the X1. All cables and monitors have been checked with another PC and another X1.My X1 detects the existence of the monitor (shows it as secondary monitor in windows control panel), but monitor only briefly shows "entering power save mode" when connected to X1 and goes blank. David

I just moved my old computer to make room for my new one. What I did was disconect everything and moved it to another location. Then I connected the monitor, the speakers, the mouse, and the keyboard.

But now the old pc won't boot up. It comes up with "monitor in power save mode". I did not connect the printer or the scanner to it.

All the connections are color coded. I even connected the rj45 cable to it but no go. Any ideas? I wanted to set it up for the grand kids and visitors.

It's a Sony Vaio running on XP SP2.
 

Answer:Solved: computer hung up with monitor in power save mode

Solved. I am not sure how I did it. I finally figured out how to open the side. I tapped the battery, the memory, and blew at it and very little dust moved around. Pretty clean inside for a 7 year old computer. Then I powered on to listen for the fan and it was working.

Then it sounded like it had booted, so I plugged in the monitor. And there it was. All booted up so I signed on. Connected the rj55 cable and I now have two desktops and a laptop on my home network all communicating with each other.

The older pc and laptop are on XP and the new one is on vista.

Five minutes is too short a time for monitor shut down in a desktop. Increase the monitor shut down time to 30 minutes. Also check the BIOS settings for "wake up" options. You might try setting the bios to its defaults

Since today my custom built computer has been having issues with all the attached devices.

I left my computer on so that I could watch a stream on twitch.tv, I paused the stream and left my computer running without being used for about 3 hours ( the only thing running was google chrome and like 3 tabs). Upon coming home I saw that my computer had entered power saving mode, that is the lights were all yellow and the screen was black but I couldn't get it to wake up again. On top of this, my mouse and keyboard were also shut off (none of the LED's were lit on either device) and no sound was playing (I had left the stream unpaused the whole time). The only thing I could do was to hold down the power button of my computer and restart it like that. Once I restarted it, everything was working just fine; windows started and I could log in and do things for around 10 seconds to 3 minutes until my monitor "entered power saving mode" again, and this would happen every time I restarted my computer. I also took note that a few seconds after my monitor shut off, my keyboard, mouse, and sound would all stop working while the actual computer itself kept running (The fans were still on, the LEDs from the motherboard were still lit.)


I've looked through many threads on various forums and the only problem they address is the monitor shutting off randomly, but I haven't found a thread that deals with the other devices as well. Another issue is that if I do have to change some... Read more

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, hopefully you can help me. I'm thinking I may have a virus of some sort, but it could just be mass corruption instead. I am on windows 7 home premium. Here's the situation.
About a month ago, my hard drive seemed to be crashing. I leave it on at night so I can listen to music as I sleep. Sometimes, when I would wake up, I would be greeted with a black screen telling me to insert the right boot device. Restarting my computer always fixed this though and it did not occur often. Most times, I could leave my computer on all day without any issues if I wanted. So I just assumed my HDD was having some sort of occasional fault, and was not long for this world. As such, I have been saving up for a new HDD.
Last week, I started noticing slow downs and decided it was time to clean up my old programs. I was uninstalling some old printer drivers when the uninstaller froze. I ran my computer through a Avast! anti-viris scan, which picked up nothing. So again, I thought it was just HDD issues.
Last night, I was playing ARK (a game on steam) with a friend and kept noticing lockups that would occur for a few seconds at a time at random. These lockups always seemed to resolve themselves, so I figured it could just be server lag from his end or my computer having a hard time with the game. But this morning it was worse. My browser was freezing up my whole computer for a bit longer and more often.

My Dad was using one of my 64 bit PCs when a program froze up and he decided to force restart the computer (Pro move, I know). Now I restart and am unable to get to the login screen. Using both safe mode and normal mode gives me the same result. After I choose one of those options, I see the "Windows is starting" message and the icon. However, before I can get to the login screen the screen goes black and all I can see is the curser in the middle of the screen. I would like to be able to get to the login screen so I can access my computer. Any help with this problem would be greatly appreciated as a lot of my work material is on this machine.

Moved our desktop computer and during reconnection realized everything was working except the sound. Plugged in the speakers to what I thought was the correct connection (next to the monitor plug...it was the only space that was the right size) to find out it most likely was not :-( Monitor went black and now only says "in power save mode press any button on keyboard or move mouse" then goes black again. Keyboard

Answer:monitor is black and reads "in power save mode"

Welcome to TSG! Sorry nobody got back to you sooner. If your thread ever goes a few days without a response feel free to post the word "bump", which will move it to the top of the list and hopefully catch somebody's attention.

Sounds like you may have toasted something in the motherboard; I don't know exactly why this would be. Try one of the two options below:

1) Plug a known working monitor into the PC. If it works, then there is just some problem with the original monitor. Hopefully nothing else is wrong. If it does not work, then you have almost certainly damaged something inside the PC.
2) Plug the monitor into a known working PC. If it works, then you know there must be a problem with the board inside the original PC. If it doesn't, then your problem lies within your monitor.

Let me know the results and we will go from there.

This morning Windows did an automatic update and when it restarted my tertiary Dell monitor will not work. It works fine on another laptop, just not on my Toshiba.

When un and replugging the Dell monitor I get a message saying the monitor is in power save mode and to move my mouse or press a button on my keyboard, but I'm already seeing my second monitor working fine.

My set up is this:

My Toshiba laptop is kept closed with its monitor disabled under Control Panel/Display.
My main monitor (Display Number 2) is a Samsung plugged into my HDMI slot.
My second monitor (Display Number 3) is a Dell, which shows up as a generic P&P monitor, plugged into my VGA slot.

The mouse moves off the Samsung but there is no sign of it on the Dell display. I have plugged in a different monitor and have the same problem.

I've tried un-installing the Dell monitor then replugging it, which then gets added to my device list as both "generic plug and play monitor" and "generic non-plug and play".

Any suggestions on how to get a picture back on the VGA monitor?

A couple weeks ago I was using fruity loops program and all of the sudden my screen went black and "d-sub power save mode" was all that was shown. After a few restarts my PC would start normally but take me directly into bios where I disabled the power save mode but still went blank after a few hours of running normal. I tried restarting as I had done the first time but noticed my screen stayed blank after multiple restarts. Eventually my PC had brought me to the bios page as did before but when I would exit bios this time Windows XP no longer appeared and I was back to blank screen. Now I can't even access bios and the screen stays blank but the fans and cd drive work and everything sounds normal on startup.

Here's what I've tried but had no luck.
1. Reseated the memory and agp video card
2. Removed CMOS for hours and put it back
3. Thoroughly cleaned inside PC
4. Switched power cables and tried monitor on a laptop and monitor works fine on laptop
5. Pressed all key commands
6. Inserted Windows XP cd and I can hear it running but no picture

If you have more than one RAM stick try one at a time. Disconnect all drives, extra cards (sound etc.) leave just CPU/HS/fan, RAM and vid card. Try video card in another system. Replace power supply. I realized these last two are not always possible.

I opened the tower moved stuff around and turned on the computer and the monitor and mouse went on.  I have also noticed that after the 3rd day there is a wirling noise coming from a fan that usually turns on just as the computer is being turned on then turns itself off..but this fan seems to be staying on (hense the wirling noise sound) What r some of the things I can do at home before i take it in for repairand spend a fortune?Ps.
