Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor
Hi, i have this old dell laptop that has been working without any problems. Yesterday after using it for about 10 min, the display just turned very dim, it was difficult to see. So i pressed fn+arrow up-down and the display did become brigther but after about 5 minutes it went back to dark dim. Do you have any suggestion? Could it be power issue(friends advice) Thank you soooooooo much!
If laptop is running on battery, that will be normal, check the AC adapter cable.
If laptop does that even when connected to charger, change power saving settings.

Does sound like a power issue. Assuming it's windows xp, you can check to see if it is a poiwer management setting:
Go to start, settings, control panel, display, and on the 'screen saver' tab at the bottom should be the "monitor power" area, click "power".
There is a power schemes area there. Check out what your settings are. Laptops often have settings for when plugged in versus when unplugged; when troubleshooting this make sure you are positive about if you are 'plugged in' or not as it will affect settings! :)
(On Vista go to Control Panel, Power Options; same thing, change your settings there)
