Question about Gateway FPD2185W 21 in. LCD Television
I checked the monitor on another Pc and it worked fine. So I guess its an interanl problem. I have a Gateway GM 5084 model with Amd Athlon 64x 2 and an Nvida GE Force 6100 Intergrated graphics card with PCI express slot avaliability. Is it my Video card that is Not working or can it be related to my mother board or processors? Any help is greatly apprieciated. If you read this I thankyou for taking the time to look at it
It could be a resolution problem Try starting in safe mode, by pressing F8 as the computer starts. The right click the desktop and go to personalize or display settings depending which version of windows you have, and change the resolution. If this doesn't work, try restarting again back in safe mode and go to control panel>system>device manager and click on the + sign next to display adapters. Right click properties and click on update driver. If this still doesn't help check that your graphics card is seated correctly into the motherboard and the leads from the monitor to the pc are secure.

Ok, I have now had 2 different Dell SE198WFP monitors
with the same problem (shutting down after a couple of seconds) and I had to read numerous posts on numerous blogs
looking for a solution to this "problem" before I actually figured it out. Everything that I'd
read suggested bad capacitors on the inverter board (and I'm sure that this is an
issue, but it wasn't mine.) After
replacing all of the caps on the inverter I still had the same problem.
Long story short, I found (on both of my SE198WFP monitors) that
at least one of the four CCFL backlight tubes had a burnt wire on the end of
Now I'm not sure if this is a common problem with this
monitor or not, but it was in fact the problem with both of mine, and after fixing
these wires both monitors now work just fine
:-) It seems that all four CCFL's
have to pull the same amount of current or the inverter trips the overload and
just shuts itself down. I hope this
helps!! "And good hunting"
