    I just installed a new ATI 9550 Radeon 256mb agp card and everytime i
    reboot (it seems to happen when i start up internet explorer or
    firefox) the monitor blanks out and (the monitor is a Dell E193FP 19")
    and when i try to press a button on the monitor it says "In Power Save
    Mode: Press Keyboard or Mouse to activate" or something to that effect.
    I try pressing keyboard and mouse but nothing happens. I tried
    reinstalling ATI drivers, monitor drivers, everything! I even changed
    power management stuff but still does it. I have been searching around
    and it seems that its a problem with a lot of Dell monitors. But if
    anyone could please help!! thanks in advance!!
