Dell monitor - Power save mode

October 2016


Upon booting my PC, the following messages is displayed on on my Dell monitor:


  • This problem occurs when one or more pin(s) of your VGA connection (cable) somehow got bent.
  • Straightened it back up and replugged your monitor.

Thanks to oldtimer1942 for this tip.
