Question about Computers & Internet

Gateway monitor will not work on non gateway PC.

I gave my father my old Gateway monitor #FPD1950 to use on his PC, he is running windows XP like myself. We disconnected his old CRT and hooked up the LCD with the analog cable as he does not have a digital port, and nothing but a blank screen. Is the cable different for CRT/ LCD connections? Maybe it is a software issue? How do I find the software on my computer and download it for him. Any ideas? Joe

My FPD1950 Gateway Monitor quit working. It will not go on..What can it be? What can be done to fix it?


It does the same on another PC?
First thing to look inside the monitor will be the DC filter caps (bulging tops) which is the common failure in LCD TV and Monitors.
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.

Windows XP on my Gateway PC will not accept Viewsonic Widescreen VA1912wSeries . My HP PC broke & I moved the montor to the Gateway. The HP had the same Windows XP system.


Reboot the computer into safemode. to do this tap F8 after the logo screen for gateway goes away. select Safe Mode.

Right click the desktop and click properties. in this window click settings. change the resolution to 1024x768.

click the advanced button. click monitor tab then set the screen refresh rate to 60 hertz.

if the monitor is compatible it will be able to be displayed. else try 1440x900 and 60Hertz for the settings

Old gateway essential 400c PC


yes, a 400 mhz processor can run windows xp, but you will want to have a LOT of ram. i would not recommend it unless you have at 256-512 or more ram.

windows 2000 can get along with 128-256 ram.

Gateway monitor model Fpd 1950


It's probably cheaper to get a new monitor than it is to get a logic board. If Gateway can even get you such a thing.

Good luck on that.
