Monitor stuck in power saving mode

Specs: Windows Vista
Hey I need help big time! I've been checking on the forum but none of the other power saving mode problem seems to be similiar to mine. Please bear with my long description as I don't want to miss out any details. Ok here goes..

I recently just swapped the monitors between 2 of my cpus. One of the monitor is an old Samsung one while the other is a rather new Lenovo one. Initially, the Samsung is connected to the my own cpu but i swapped it with the Lenovo which was connected to my dad's cpu. Everything worked fine. However after I tried swapping back, the Samsung was working fine on my cpu again while the Lenovo could not work on my dad's cpu. It kept saying "Power Saving Mode". The cpu starts up just fine as the fan and the windows vista sound can all be heard. My speakers and everything else is working fine as well.

I tried swapping again the Samsung to my dad's and the Lenovo back to mine but to no avail. I swapped once more with the Samsung back to mine but now the Samsung doesn't work even on my own CPU. I'm really running out of ideas does anyone have any ideas?

Btw, I did the swapping without switching off the cpu. Does it affect in anyway?

It's recommended to turn off the monitor first before unplugg it. Do a simple test disconnect vga/dvi/hdmi cable and leave the power cable connected now start the monitor,do u see any message?

I did turn off the monitor before unplugging it but I didnt turn off the cpu. Will it affect in anyway? I tired your method and the monitor now says no signal.

Oh I got my dad's cpu to finally detect the monitor. The monitor connected to his cpu is now working but mine still isnt. I did it by unplugging and replugging the graphic card. I tried the same method with mine own cpu but sadly it doesnt work. Sighs. But now both the monitor works on my dad's cpu but none of them work on mine. Any ideas?
