Computer enters power saving mode

Ok, so one day my computer screen turned blaông xã & the only thing written on the screen was... "entering power save mode." & the screen is unresponsive or the mouse, different screens don"t work (same thing) cleaning inside did not work either, i researched a ton about it and it still does not work. it starts normally (the sound) but always goes bachồng to lớn power save sầu mode. :( i wasn"t able lớn use for almost a year now. Please! if you know anything about this, i would be VERY happy. so please reply. oh yeah, it is a dell 4400 windows xp i think? 

 

Thanks!

Scoot,

To me this more or less sounds like a Clip thẻ problem, if possible i recommkết thúc installing a different thẻ inlớn your PC, or try a different on-board video slot if you have sầu that option. By using different screens you ruled out the monitor, but having a no signal, or entering power save mode, basically the same thing, sounds lượt thích your đoạn phim card died. otherwise check the BIO"s incase you are using the onboard đoạn phim when you have a PCI(-e) slot đoạn Clip card

Hope this helps you.

Yeah, sorry to say. I vote for a bad Video card, or monitor cable. Your COMPUTER is not in power save mode. Just your monitor, as evidenced by the sound playing.

Monitors only kiông xã in khổng lồ power save sầu mode if they don"t detect a Clip feed.

Time to lớn find a new thẻ - or a new PC.

We have had a simmilar problem with many Optiplex GX5đôi mươi. In our case the computer base power light would flash orange slowly like the comptuer was asleep however nothing would make it wake up. You would have lớn hard power it down by, holding the power button for more than five sầu seconds till the power went off. It would then start up again, however the problem is intermittnat & ultimately a warrenty Gọi from Dell fixed the problem. I believe sầu they replaced the front xúc tích panel where the power button/light is connected.

Check the easy stuff first. Look for a bent pin on your video cable. If nothing, replace the cable. If still nothing, try a new đoạn phim card. If still nothing, try a new computer. It will make more sense at that point.

Oh yeah, và as Chris said, make sure you are plugging inlớn the right video clip port. You may have an add-on đoạn Clip thẻ but also have sầu onboard đoạn phim.

Have sầu you tried pulling the power off for 20 mins khổng lồ allow it khổng lồ all fully discharge and try again?

 

GFX card is most likely though.
