Hello, my DellSE198WFP flat panel monitor keeps shutting off into power save mode. I have to shut down and restart the system to get the monitor to work. After about 15 or so minutes...it does it again. However, If I watch TV or play MMO games online, everything is fine. Any help would be appreciated. :)

01-WarPig4life -Dell Flat Panel SE198WFD shutting off (1-18-2010)

WarPig4life – Welcome to – GEEKS to GO –

Ok – I am not familiar with Windows Vista - - -but I can still give you some ideas/settings that you should look at - - Just can’t give you a step by step Procedure to get you to the Settings

1st of all here are Dell Support Sites – That may be useful??

Dell Windows Vista Support site –

Dell Support for Monitors & Displays –

Monitor Support

You have Control Panel Settings
– in Power Options – or Power Management
These are settings for – Monitor Power Down Options

Then you have – BIOS Settings - -
In Advanced Power Management Section or in
Power Management Section

Then the Flat Screen
Itself may have Power Management


Another observation/questions

How long have you had this System?
Is this a recent Upgrade?
Video Card update?
How long have you had this problem? With reference to latest upgrade? – if any . .

The 375 Watt PSU . . . .That may not support your Video Card - - -Specs have note –
Requires sufficient system cooling and a compatible power supply. Visit www.slizone.com for more information

Hope this gets you pointed in right direction / starting point –
