Hi Jose, iristub and others. I was having this exact same problem on my new MacBook Pro when I tried hooking up my LG Flatron as a dual monitor (but only when I tried to up the resolution to the highest for this particular model which is 1680 x 1050; the lower resolutions worked just fine). After a lot of forum reading and trouble shooting I found a solution! All I had to do was go into System Preferences > Energy Saver and changing the Graphics mode from Better Battery Life to Higher Performance and restart my computer and now the monitor works fine at it's highest resolution. Hope that helps!

Hi,

My monitor just stopped working whenever I turn it on a blue box appears on a black screen and displays a message Power Saver Mode.

Can anyone help me to fix it?

I have exactly the same problem. My monitor shuts off at random times ( usually up to ten minutes and less), and the message "power saving mode" comes on. Then, light on monitor switches from blue to amber. I tried cleaning my PC inside from dust, changed all power settings to "never", meaning it MUST not to go to the sleep mode, but it still does. I tried to update my video card and the system told me it is up to date! I also performed disk clean up, still no help. I have no idea what to do Emoticon I did noticed that the longer I will have my PC off or unplugged, the longer the monitor will stay awake. HELP!!! I'm a poor student and I spending $500+ on new PC is not in my budget Emoticon

If you have a monitor you can borrow, that would be one way to check to to see if it is the monitor or something else. Beyond that, having it checked by a competent tech to determine the problem.

Keep in mind that computers do fail and that there does come a time to replace them.

The green led light turns amber and then the screen just goes black.

    Please don't suggest going to control panel, as I can't get that far.

    PLEASE PLEASE CAN ANYONE SUGGEST ANYTHING????

You might trying to replace the battery on your motherboard. If the small battery on your motherboard is low on power it will not let your computer start and give you a message of Power safe mode Yes all computers have a small battery in it so that the bios will be save to memory that makes your computer work!

      I have also tried connecting a different monitor, with no luck. There is no message to indicate it's in power saving mode, but the led remains amber (when it should be green).

      I'm not too technical but recently had a wireless connection to this PC and I wondered if this might be causing the problem. It worked ok after it was connected for a few weeks, so I'm not sure this is the problem.

G'day Emoticon Don't know if he has fixed his prob., but I am having a similar problem. While I am Techwise, I am at this time unable to solve the problem. I have a new Dell P2210 Monitor hooked up to an x850 256mb Radeon with DVI in an Acer Veriton 7800 and 4mb RAM, 3Mghz CPU... and XP Pro.

Recording Digital TV progs is when it usually happens...monitor goes into PSMode and the only way I can get it out is by crashing the computer and restarting. Obviously this is not what I want to do while recording!!! Emoticon

Computers clean...Mobo and peripherals are all in good working order.....and clean. All cables the same...none loose or *%*$ed.Cmos battery is new, also took out and gave it a clean just in case..but no go. Power Saving Option on Monitor is greyed out so I can't get to it to change its settings.

Gone into Bios/Cmos and there is no settings there to alter to fix this problem. Definitly linked to the Monitor itself and not the computer. Maybe OS/Monitor related but as I say, I am as yet unable to find the source.

Any more ideas would be welcome.

Cheers

G'day everyone.
I agree to badcarma. you must Replace CMOS battery
Did you check your "NEW" CMOS battery if it's working? Try the steps below to check your CMOS battery
1. If your PC is currently on, shut it down.
2. Remove (don't replace) cmos battery.
3. Start your PC.
4. If in any case your monitor will lead to a poor visualization of logo startup just restart your system.
5. Set date and time of your system (though this would not save if you restart again since you remove your cmos battery.)
After Saving & exiting on cmos setup, your system must be working fine without a CMOS battery. If it does, then probably you have to replace your CMOS battery with a new "WORKING" one.
Hope i've helped. If this worked, please post your reply.
Goodluck..

I'm using Windows 7, having exactly the same problem, which also occurred after a Norton update. I hate myself for updating now. Anyway, I have tried everything (reseating, cleaning, checking cords etc.) but nothing. I have considered replacing the videocard, but it's on the motherboard. I've never replaced a motherboard so how hard and how expensive is that to do? Thanks!
