Question about Gateway FPD1975 19" LCD Monitor
I have a Gateway mx3215 when turning it on it freezes at the gateway bios boot screen. It allows me to enter the bios settings or if I hit F10 it allows me to select the boot drive, then I can get it to boot. Once in windows XP if I click on the start menu it forces the computer to shut down.
I have the computer set up to dual boot linux, When I can get the computer to boot and get linux up it runs linux fine with no problems.
Is my problem bios going bad, cpu going bad? is there a way to flash the bios?

Try to start in safe mode and check if you can change some of the video settings (resolution, refresh rate, etc). Maybe one of these settings is such that the monitor cannot handle properly. To get into Safe Mode, press F8 as soon as you see the Gateway logo on the screen while booting the PC.

Unless there is inadequate ventilation, your monitor could remain on all the time with little ill effect. Actually turning on and off your monitor actually puts more strain on it then leaving it on all the time.
If the gateway screen is displayed for a moment and then just turns off, I believe the inverter board inside the monitor has broken.
What's actually happening is that somewhere in the board more voltage then needed is "leaking" in and the safeguards on the board turn it off to prevent damage.
I would go and get an estimate from a shop. If the price is within 30-50 dollars of a new monitor, get a new one.
