If your monitor is displaying a message that says “power save mode” or “sleep mode,” this is usually caused by a setting in the computer’s BIOS. The BIOS is a set of instructions that the computer uses to start up and to configure hardware. To remove power save mode, you’ll need to change a setting in the BIOS. Here’s how:
- Restart the computer and press the key that opens the BIOS menu. This key is usually F2, F10, F12, or DEL. If you’re not sure which key to press, look for a message on the screen that says “Press [key] to enter setup.”
- Use the arrow keys to navigate to the “Power” or “Advanced” tab. This tab will be different depending on your BIOS manufacturer.
- Find the “Power Management” or “ACPI” settings and change the setting to “S0.”
- Save your changes and exit the BIOS menu. Your computer should now start up normally.
If you’re still having trouble, you may need to update your BIOS. BIOS updates are available from the manufacturer’s website. Follow the instructions on the website to download and install the update.
