    A pin....if you mean a connector pin you need to go to a pin store, find an extraction/insertion tool and probably an entire connector assembly. If you did not know this then you will also need an electronics technician or at least a tutorial in cable termination. Go for it if you want as it is a valuable skill. Remember this: monitors have dangerous electrical potentials.

Gateway LCD monitor EZTUNE theft protection problem


You need to install EZTUNE but you need to go here first:

Portrait Displays' Theft Deterrence minimizes theft or unauthorized relocation of your display. Theft Deterrence does not prevent the display from being stolen, but hinders the operation of the display once it is removed from the 'Theft Deterrence enabled' host computer.

This site is provided for you to securely store your PIN in the event you should need to retrieve it at some point in the future.

Please select from the following options.

Change your PIN. https://pinreg.portrait.com/change_p...=dtune&OEM=gwy

Forgot your PIN? https://pinreg.portrait.com/remind_p...=dtune&OEM=gwy


GatewayShield™ Security Available
Protect your hardware using the EzTune™ Anti-Theft Software and reinforced lock slots. The slots, paired with a cable lock, physically anchor your display to a secure fixture. The software keeps the monitor secure using a unique PIN code. In the event the display is removed from the PC without the code, its full functionality is disabled.

I have an VGA adapter on the cord b/c 15 pin male/9 pin female is almost impossible to find. Anyway when I connect to two monitors to the pc only on monitor comes on the other does nothing. comfirmed both...

9-pin female to 15-pin male RS232 adapter

This = NO

http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/1009371/1009371rv.shtml

You cannot run dual monitors off of the motherboard.
BIOS will assign only one IRQ.
(Interrupt ReQuest )

That 9-pin connector (C) is a Serial port. This = No

http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/1009371/1009371rvr2.shtml

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_Port

You need a graphics card.

Don't be thinking of one monitor to motherboard, and one monitor to graphics card.
One IRQ, and it's assigned to either the -> motherboard graphics (Integrated), or a -> dedicated graphics card.

Two monitors to graphics card.

I am using a lesser model;
ATI Radeon 9250, and it's a PCI graphics card.
Goes in a white PCI slot.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5247980&CatId=1603

My PCI-Express graphics card gave up the ghost. (8 years old. It's cool)
I replaced it with the Radeon 9250 so could run dual monitors again.
Does fine for on here, Adobe Photoshop 7, YouTube, etc. Not a gamer.
(I have a Powercolor HD5450 PCI-Express graphics card I'm going to use, when I get off my duff, lol! Requires a 400 Watt power supply)

I use an HP 2009m 20-inch widescreen, as my Primary monitor, (Left side of computer desk), and a Philips 26-inch HDTV as my Secondary monitor. (Right side of desk)

Do you have two VGA (CRT) type monitors, or is one a flat LCD screen digital monitor?
Some flat LCD screen monitors have dual hookups.
One for a VGA cable, and one for a DVI cable,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

If you have two VGA monitors that are the CRT type, (Looks like a small TV), and your graphics card has 1 VGA port, and 1 DVI port, they make a VGA to DVI adapter. Just make sure you get the correct one.

VGA port on graphics card is Female.
DVI cable connector is Male.
This is the usual standard.
This is the type of VGA to DVI adapter that is required,

http://www.directron.com/dviadapter.html

ALWAYS, install the software off of the Installation disk that comes with the graphics card -> FIRST
Install the drivers, and the user control panel.

(Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device.
The graphics card is the device, do not know what version of Windows you are using.
User control panel = ATI - Catalyst Control Panel. Nvidia - Nvidia Control Panel )

Do Not worry that you will loose graphics, after installing the graphics card software. Windows will Not use the software until THAT graphics card is installed.

Then after finished close all windows, go back to your desktop screen, and turn the computer off.
Unplug from power, FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions, and physically install graphics card.
(Need to know about Anti-Static Precautions please post back in a Comment)

Set your main, or Primary monitor on the left side, Secondary monitor on the right; of your computer desk.
Turn the monitors on. If a CRT type allow them to warm up.

Turn the computer on. Once Windows has loaded your desktop screen will be on the Primary monitor.

1) Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen
2) Left-click on Properties
3) Left-click on the Settings tab

The blue No.1 monitor icon is the Primary monitor
The blue No.2 monitor icon is the Secondary monitor.

4) Left-click on the Secondary monitor icon.
5) Left-click in the empty square box to the left of -
Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor

6) Left-click on Apply at the bottom right
7) Left-click on OK at the bottom left.

Your desktop screen will now be on both monitors.
(Advisory comes up asking if you wish to keep settings? Yes)

Open your internet browser.
Move your mouse cursor to the Right side of the blue frame/border.
WHEN your mouse cursor turns into a Double-Headed Arrow, hold the Left mouse button down.

It is a little tricky to keep the mouse cursor as a Double-Headed Arrow. Must be that, and then hold the left mouse button down.

Holding the left mouse button down move your mouse to the Right, and drag the blue border of the internet browser to the Right.
Keep dragging until it is all the way to the right side, of the Secondary monitor.

Now you have your internet browser on both monitors.

I run the internet browser on my Secondary monitor, (26-inch HDTV), and use the Primary monitor to look at computer functions, motherboard manuals, etc.
Or I move the internet browser to the Primary monitor, play music videos from YouTube, and use the Secondary monitor for Photoshop.

The world is your oyster.

So there you have it. You need a graphics card, and it has to have dual monitor inputs. (Ports)
Splitter cable thing? I wouldn't bother.

IRQ - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interrupt_Request

Buying a graphics card:
Depends on what you want to do with it for one.
You can see the simple stuff I do, doesn't require much graphics power.
(More than Integrated Graphics, though, and can't use dual monitors on Integrated Graphics)

The next concerns are what type of graphics expansion slot/s do you have, and how much Wattage (Power) the Power Supply has.

You have a 300 Watt power supply, unless it has been replaced,

http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/1009371/1009371cl4.shtml

(Scroll down; Power Supplies)

Your motherboard has 2 white PCI slots. If one is available it can be used for a graphics card -> Not recommended

Your motherboard has one Black PCI-Express x16 expansion slot, that is used for a graphics card, also.
It is right above No.1 white PCI slot.
Highly recommended.

(Gently Pull UP on the PCI-Express x16 slot -> Lock
It looks as though you press down on it, when installing, or removing a graphics card )

http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/INTEL/4006158R/4006158Rnv.shtml

So when looking for a graphics card, look for PCI-Express graphics card, and system requirements / minimum power requirement; states 300 Watt power supply, or greater.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.
I know that is a lot to take in all at once. I can clarify anything you need clarified.

My monitor wont turn on on my gateway


Check for bent pins on connector. Also may have exceeded the resolution, check for resolution on another monitor. This will verify if the non-working monitor needs service.

I have a older (I believe 90's ) mdel gateway computer. How do you put it togethr step by step?


The keyboard, mouse, and monitor are the only three essential connections. The keyboard and mouse should be color-coded with green and blue connectors, and you should see the same colors in the back of the computer. Make those connections, making sure to line up the connectors so the pins are in the right locations.

Then, look for a connector on the back of the computer that matches your monitor cable. It will be rectangular and will have three rows of pins, with a total of 15 pins. Plug that cable in, and tighten the two thumb screws.

That's all you need to do to get it running. If you have speakers, you can plug those into the plug on the back of the computer that has a little icon next to it showing sound waves emanating from a small dot.

I turn my Gateway E4100 on and all the lights come on and the fan comes on but the monitor will not display anything I have tried a few different monitors and the ame thing always happens. Any thoughts?


Default Video Adapter Might Be Set Wrong Within Bios, RESET Your CMOS, by taking the pin and taking it from 1-2 and put it on 2-3. Or Just Take Out The Battery On The Board. Change Ur Adapter To Whichever Matches Your Card. PCI, AGP, PEG (PCI-E)

I Also Assumed Your Video Card Wasnt Built On, You Could Try Plugging Your Monitor Into Your Build On Video Adapter.

If All Fails, Try A Different Video Card. I Had a video card kill my computer once

Monitors won't work with Gateway Desktop


Do you see anything on the monitor at all when you boot up? If not, then the graphics card or onboard video is bad. If you have onboard video, then you just need to purchase a graphics card that will go into an available graphics slot inside your PC. If you have a graphics card already in there, then it will need to be replaced. If you can see the boot up screen but stops displaying video when you go into windows, then the resolution is set outside of your monitors capabilities; you will need to boot into safe mode, then reset the resolution to 800 x 600 and reboot; then you can set it to perform within your monitor's capability.
