Whenever I load my computer up, it enters into power saver mode as soon as the windows load screen finishes. I can get it into safe mode, and I have tried turning off the power saver option (control panel, power options, NEVER NEVER for both pulldown tabs on turning off monitor) but it still loads in safe mode. I've also reconnected both cables for the monitor (monitor side and vid card side). I have a 21" LG LCD flatscreen. Any help would be greatly appreciated. As a side, my computer has been very loud on loads prior to this issue, I'm wondering if my vid card my have run its course. Just trying to get other options/opinions.

What make is the PC? How old is it?

Suggest you try re-seating your RAM modules, the video card AND replacing your CMOS Battery.

Alternatively, you can also try booting up your PC after removing the CMOS battery. If it works (even otherwise), shutdown the PC and insert the battery back into the slot.

Let us know if it worked.

Good luck. :thumbsup:

It is a bt83yahi make, i.e. a clone. I have had it for around 4 years I would say, give or take. Let me give all that a shot. Be right back. :-)

What a twist. For ishs and giggles, I plugged in an old CRT monitor I have, and it didn't drop into power saver mode.... Does that mean my 21" LG LCD monitor is a goner?

Could you hook up the 21" LG monitor to another PC and see if it works?
