what causes the monitor to continuously be in power save mode? im using a 400watt coolmax. Maybe i need more power for my pc? i just built it but i can't even set up the bios cause the screen is in power save mode!! moving mouse or hitting keyboard does not work. All the fans are running. Graphics card fan is running... so im assuming the pc is getting its power. But why the hell can't i get out of power save mode. I've tried a different monitor, not working. Same problem monitor is in power save mode activate using pc. I've consulted many people about this and no one seems to know why it sits in power save mode. Now i know its not my hardware because i had this problem before on my old pc i just can't remember how to get out of it.
