Having problems with your Dell Dimension 4700 PC Desktop ?

My computer(a dell) is stuck on save power mode

\015 It says to press any key,or move the mouse,but when I do.It's nonresponsive.\015\012\015\012One day our computer was in the sleep mode and it wouldn't come out. We also have a Dell (4700) Desktop. When the computer is started, it just goes to a black screen. If we press one of the buttons on the monitor, we get a message that says that the computer is in power save mode and to press any key but nothing happens when we do that. The light in front of the computer also is amber instead of green. We looked it up in the manual and the manual says to remove and reinstall the memory and the graphics card (if applicable) and another card. We did that but it didn't help. \015

Answers :

The reason your computer is in power save mode is because the little battery inside your tower is going dead. It needs to be replaced. It is a small battery about the size of a nickle inside your tower. Change the battery and it will solve your problem.
I have 2 monitors on an nVidiae-Force7300 video card. One of the monitors would go into power save mode after a while not when I was using it. After much searching I found that when I unhooked the monitor from the tower but left the power on that seemed to reset the monitor. So far, so fixed.
