Search for it online (if still available).

Go to the online site that supports the monitor (depending on how old the unit is, it may not be available anymore).

If you've already checked all your cable connections, to make sure they're tight, check your windows settings: Go to Start>rt click My computer, choose properties, settings on performance, and choose adjust for best performance. (This will uncheck the shadow options for menus and icons, etc.) Take a look at your desktop. Is that better? If so, you might want to do some maintenance to improve your system performance by clicking here.
If no improvement, download or open the .pdf user guide for your monitor by clicking here. See pages 22, 17, and 12. They will show you how to use the auto button on the monitor to reset to optimal settings, to adjust the refresh rate (control panel>display>settings>advanced) to its optimum. (Normally, higher refresh rates indicate clearer pictures, but some LCD monitors seem to run better at a default 60hz rate. Check your Gateway documentation for your graphics adapter to see what it supports, (your monitor supports 60, 70, & 75), or experiment.)
If adjusting settings doesn't improve anything, you could search for updated drivers for your graphics adapter. Go to windows update and see if you're offered hardware updates, or search Gateway support for newer drivers.
Not many options left. See here.You could take it in to a local tech and have them take a quick look.( or try it on another computer).
If it's on its way to a sad end, I'm sorry. We have the same monitor at home and it's been great. Aside from a scratch someone put in it years back, it provides very clear resolution.

Hello. Have you tried using this monitor on a different computer? This would help us understand if this is being caused by your computer/video card or the monitor itself is dying and needs to be replaced/fixed.

A "previously-owned" 17-inch LCD screen probably will cost $30 to $50.
A brand-new 17-inch LCD screen is hard to find -- probably, nothing less than 19-inches is being sold, for $100 to $150.
An audio/video technician will charge $60 to $75 per hour to try to repair your LCD.

So, responsibly recycle (or "free-cycle") your old screen, and purchase a new 19-inch screen.

Does it the same with another PC?
Most common failure in the LCD monitor is ude to bad DC filter caps, so that will be the first place to look.
Please read below first so you can decide if you will want to DIY repair.
If you are going to DIY and already try the monitor with another PC, and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed GATEWAY monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Check the cable and all the pins on both ends, also try it with another PC to make sure it is not the PC video card problem.
