Solved Vista Save Power Mode


New Member
When ever i leave my computer idled for a long time the monitors turn black and i can't do anything but shut it down and start it up again. When i shut it down it says "Out of range input 1" Then i turn it off again and this time it has an error saying Vista didn't start up correctly, then i hit "start windows normally" then i can do stuff. How do i wake it up without shutting it down. Thanks

It's some sort of issue with the screen resolution/other graphics compatibility issues. Did you recently install something new graphics related? New graphics card? New monitor? Change resolution?

If you have the patience, try lowering your screen resolution and wait for the problem to happen just to see if it's a resolution issue.
