For many, it means finding the offending USB culprit.. Unplug them all, restart the computer and if it starts OK, then plug each USB in, one at a time, restarting between each one.. You'll eventually be able to ID the problem machine..
And for some, it requires a slight change in the CMOS settings to disable "legacy support" for USB.. Browse the BIOS for an item called "Legacy Support", then disable/turn it off. then save your changes - reboot. After rebooting into windows, plug in your USB device, then with it plugged in, reboot - it should work fine. This is a fix for many usb devices especially printers which contain on-board computers.
Hope this helps.
Monitor shows "Entering Power Saver Mode" and computer does not boot up correctly. (Shows 1, 2 3 on the front panel, and then two short beeps.) The message on the monitor only shows for about 5 seconds and then I get black screen. Have changed all settings to "Never Off". This has happened several times in the past two weeks (when the computer restarts due to Windows updates or crashes, as I normally never shut it off.) Weird part is that when I disconnect absolutely everything from the tower (Dell Dimension 9200; also Dell Monitor) and bring it upstairs to my husband's computer, use his power supply, connect his monitor and keyboard, it starts up fine. Then I bring it back downstairs and reconnect my peripherals, and all is still fine. Have done this several times (the swap), and it works every time. Can't figure out why to my husband's peripherals solves the problem. Any clues, as I am totally clueless and can't seem to think of the connection.... What causes a computer to go into this Power Saver Mode?
