Trinitron Monitor is in Power Save Mode - Activate using PC.
Can anyone tell me how to get out of this?
cjovalle, what operating system were you running when you discovered it to be the video card?
I'm running ME and lots of people tell me it's unstable and probably has something to do with that.
We did get the monitor to work but don't know why. Here's how:
We plugged in another monitor and still nothing happened - only a black screen this time.
We worked with it for a while, rebooting, unplugging, etc. Gave up, shut it off for the night.
Got up the next morning, turned it on and viola - it worked! We shut it down, plugged the old
monitor back up, booted up and viola - it worked. This is the second time this has happened and
this is the way we fixed it both times. It doesn't make sense.
Thanks for the advice anyway.
yea, have the same problem with our E171FP Dell flat panel. right out of the box...it's in Power Save...and I have yet to set up our other brand new system too, but if this one won't work, then why bother.
I am awaiting an answer and am discouraged to see that DellSupport didn't even reply to this thread yet. What a crock. I'll send both new systems back tomorrow unless I get an answer today.
