Having a guess at your problem I would say that if you bought yourself a new monitor and attached all the cables (2) correctly, then the issue here would be updating the drivers of your graphics card for that type of monitor.

Gateway blank screen


Here's some tricks I would try. Something here, might help...
1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or orange or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your monitor on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.
Good luck.

The spynet watch turns on the but the screen is blank I can hear sounds but can not see the menu screen


When exactly you lost the display?

Just right after turning on the computer?While working in Windows? Or every time you open a program or application?

If problem happened just right after turning on the computer, we have 2 point of failures: Monitor or the VGA CARD/MOBO Onboard.

To test your monitor. While computer and monitor is ON. Unplug the VGA cord at the back or the monitor and check if you will see a box moving across the screen says monitor self test.

If no display replace monitor.

It monitor self test passed. Connect computer to a different monitor and if problem persist then update the video card driver or the motherboard chipset. If all fails then you have to replace your video card or motherboard.

Pls do consider replacing the VGA cord as well.

Hope this helps.

Hi.
It is best to test your monitor on another computer. If it does not work on another then the Monitor is definitely the source of the problem. If your monitor works on another then the problem could be your video card or that your resolution is beyond the capability of your monitor. To test this, when you restart the computer if you do not see the BIOS screen or even the windows logo screen then it is the video card, but if you do and this problem occurs when you are in windows then your screen resolution is the problem. You could also try using a different monitor on your computer to check those settings.

My screen has shrunk, there is a black frame around it that i cant get rid of. Iv tried changing the resolution and re-starting my computer nothong has helped


Use the OSD (On Screen Display) controls on your monitor to change the "vertical-size' and "horizontal-size" of your picture.

Then, try a different monitor, to see if your monitor is the problem, or if your video-card is the problem.

How to connect emachine flat monitor to my computer?


Hello,

It sounds as if you are missing the power cord for the monitor. If the cord did not come with your monitor/PC, you can pick one up at any Radio Shack or electronics store. If you could forward me your eMachine model number as well as the monitor model number, I will see if I can better solve this for you without you having to spend anymore money.

Best Regards,
Franklin, C2Solutions

Flat screen monitor functioning strangely


Sounds like there maybe bad caps on the power board in the LCD. Try a different monitor on your computer and if the known working monitor comes on with the computer and behaves properly then you know its a problem with your original monitor. If the known working monitor acts strange as well then you know its a problem with the video card. Let me know what happens.

Gateway flat LCD dead


I'm not sure if your referring to the lcd monitor (gateway brand) or a laptop's lcd screen not working anymore.

1. if it's an lcd monitor...
a. test monitor in a different pc before assuming the problem is the lcd screen
b. replace the monitor if after testing monitor is in deed the item failing.

2. if it's the lcd screen from your gateway laptop.
a. you may be able to attach a regular analog monitor to the paralel port on your gateway.. test and see if the monitor that you attach will give you a picture (you may have to toggle with some some keys on your laptop keyboard to make have the signal going to the "externa" or attached monitor.
if the other monitor does not work either.. you video controller on your motherboard on your laptop may be failing and you may not have other options that to replace your laptop.
b. if the external/attached monitor works.. very likely the problem is the lcd screen for that you need to get a replacement and you may have to contact gateway to find out about pricing (or places to send your laptop for service if you're still within warranty). if you have an old laptop you may have to considere simply replacing the unit as buying a new lcd screen may very likely be more expensive than the same working laptop.
