Having problems with your Dell Dimension 8400 PC Desktop ?

Monitor keeps hibernating, can't make it stop, pixel issue.

\015 I've already gone into power management and put everything onto Never. No hibernate, no energy star, no screen saver, always on, ect... \015\012\015\012I have a Dell Inspiron 8400. Monitor does not come on. When I press the buttons on the monitor, it says In Power Save Mode, press any button on keyboard or mouse. I tried this and it doesn't do anything. any ideas?\015

Hey,
\015\012
\015\012I think this is more of a problem on your computer instead of the monitor, ofcourse you could try another monitor and see if the same happens. I suspect your computer goes into standby or hibernation on its own, and it does work fine if you reset the computer right?
\015\012
\015\012if you go into power management again, disable or turn off hibernation completely, its on one of the pages.
\015\012Make sure its not set to standby, and also disable your screen saver.
\015\012
\015\012Right click on desktop - properties - then screensaver. turn it to none.
\015\012
\015\012Also you could look into the computer bios and make sure its not set to standby or hibernation from there. thats unlikely but you could check.
\015\012
\015\012how to get into bios.. depends on the computer, right when you turn it on, on one of the corners of the screen you will get a message, press button to enter setup or bios. press that to enter bios when its presented.
\015\012
\015\012look around the bios and poweroptions.
\015\012
\015\012
\015\012Let me know if you need anything else.
