*help* new LG FLATRON IPS206 stuck in power save mode

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
HEY OCN,

I got a new LG monitor, ISP 206, 20" monitor and I set it up today via DVI cable. It was running fine until just a few moments ago where it went into power save mode and I couldn't get it out of power save mode. I rebooted my computer, went into moniter settings and changed the time moniter sleeps to "never." sure enough, a few minutes later, it goes into power save mode yet again.

So I unhooked the DVI cable and connected it via a VGA cable --> no power save. what I started to noice though was that my display was lagging. if i waved my mouse back and forth, at some points it would start skipping. im not sure if my computer was lagging or if it was just my display. if i minimized and maximized windows, it would also skip.

so i shut down my comp, opened it up and cleared out all the dust. plugged back everything in. connected my LG monitor via VGA and turned it back on. so far, no lagging, no skipping and no power save. im afraid to connect via DVI again.

What could have caused this? I thought about dust/heat, that's why I cleaned out my rig (the PSU fan does seem to be cooler now) and I don't think it's a faulty monitor (I hope) as I dug out my old Sony moniter and connected that via VGA and my display was still lagging.

My video card is a Gigabyte GTX550 Ti OC and my psu is 500W, should be enough to run a monitor yes?

Any help is appreciated. I'd hate to have to return my monitor or anything.

Try doing this, in order:

1. Unplug your PC power and hold the power button down for 15 seconds to discharge any power saved.
2. Reseat your video card; take it completely out and plug it back in to the same slot.
3. Reseat your RAM; do the same thing as the video card.

That seems to help with a lot of people with power save issues.

thanks for the tip! i havent been on the forum in awhile so i havent gotten a chance to try our your ideas.

just a quick question: is there a difference in connecting through VGA vs DVI? one better than the other?

my friend told me something about the color or resolution (i forget exactly)
