Question about Gateway FPD1975W 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor remains in sleep

I was getting some graphical errors. Green and white lines where pictures / icons should be. It would lock up the system and force me to power down the system without a proper shutdown.

Now the system sounds as though it's doing a normal start up but I do not see anything on the monitor. It remains in "sleep mode". Had it for 2 years and it just started doing this today.

Try another monitor or hock it up to a TV. see if the problem follows. if not the monitor is gone. if the porblem follows the PC then it most likely is the video card.

Hello,

Have you tried updating DirectX?

You can also try scanning your computer with RadarSync (for free) to see which drivers are outdated. You can then install the updates by searching for them using Google. But, if you want to let RadarSync update them automatically then you can buy the license.

Here is artical I found on how to disable sleep mode on a monitor, this would be for VISTA or 7, if you are using XP it's a bit different. ____________________________________________________________ How to Disable Sleep Mode on a Monitor

Your computer monitor or laptop screen will enter sleep mode after your computer remains idle for a set period of time. You can disable sleep mode if you prefer the screen to remain illuminated. You merely need to change a setting in the Windows Power Management properties box.
Difficulty: Moderately Easy Instructions

  1. Click "Start" and "Control Panel".

  2. Click "System and Security" and "Power Options". This will bring up a new dialog box.

  3. Click the menus to the right of "Turn off the Display" and set them both to "Never". This will disable sleep mode.

Hp f2105 monitor goes immediately to sleep mode


Sounds like your monitor is not processing the resolution signal from the graphics card. Reboot the computer in "safe mode with networking", from there you can play around with the resolution, start low resolution and work your way up to test the monitor.

Blank screen


Hi this is the way how to examine what's wrong with your LCD monitors. After you turned it on and the screen went white, you have to check that if you can see the image on the screen or not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. This is because of the lamps inside screen. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace.
Thank you,
