    I too have the "grey haze" on my monitor because EzTune is wanting my PIN. I do not have a PIN and I do not know how to get this grey haze off my monitor. I bought this monitor and now it is soo annoying to use....I will nevey by a Gateway again. Help me determine how to reset the PIN or fix the problem.

    Thanks for the fix! I had called Gateway and they told me I would have to pay $60 for them to help me so I didn't go any farther. I guess I'll have to decide whether the work around suffices or whether I'm willing to pay the $60.

    They will only do the above IF it is still under warranty. Otherwise it is 129.00 for 90 minutes of tech support. Gateway is practicing extortion...plain and simple.

Call Gateway @1-800-gateway. They will tell you to unplug the monitor, plug it back in while holding the power button. A screen will apear giving you a code number. The gateway rep. asks for the code number and then gives you a code number to unlock your screen.

Monitor message says "Theft Disable

The theft deterrence system can be disabled temporarily by unplugging the monitor's power cord. Then it will start the counter again. (The default is 60 minutes and is set in the EzTune software.) The software locks the monitor to one computer (the one running the EzTune software). To disable the theft deterrent message, enter EzTune and click on the Extras tab. Then select the Theft Deterrence section and enter the PIN. The PIN can be saved online and then you can request it if forgotten: .

The EzTune software is available here: .

My monitor doesn't let me type in the password. If i click to change the password it asks me for a disk on which the password is supposedly stored. I don't have this disk, I don't racall the monitor came...

This monitor includes EzTuneā„¢ which is part of GatewayShield's hardware protection solution.
This theft deterrent software lets you use a unique PIN code to secure your monitor
to your PC. If your monitor is removed from your PC, your monitor will not
function. To get started, install the EzTune software from the CD, go to the
Plug-ins section and enter your personal identification number. If you decide
to move your monitor to another PC, make sure that you install EzTune on the
second PC and enter your PIN or disable EzTune within GatewayShield on your
original PC before you disconnect your monitor from your PC

I have a Gateway FPD2185W monitor with a NVIDIA Gforce 9800 GT. Software was delivered with this monitor to suppor the Pivit features. I have had a few problems with IE since that time, but nothing I could...

The Pivot software is part of the EzTune application. When you installed EzTune, it automatically configured itself with your currently installed drivers. When you update your video drivers, Pivot must reconfigure itself. This is normal operation.

EzTune version 1.4 and later is compatible with Windows Vista.
The latest version of EzTune can be downloaded from the following Web site.

Hope that helps...
