Can't trouble shoot monitor or open the panel. I have the base removed all screws removed that I can find. Still cannot open the shell to trouble shoot. Previous owner was turning power on and off rapidly when problem occured. opening the panel would help find the problem.

This ones a little tricky. Hope you have strong fingers. Start by
removing the base. There are 3 screws. First pull the base plate off.
Then remove 2 screws. Next remove the little rubber insert in the center
of the base bracket. You will need a long phillips to get to the 3rd
screw. Slide out the base bracket. Flip the panel over and stare at the
lcd with the buttons side on the top. Grab a small flat head screw
driver. Look at an angle in each of the corners between the inner black
lcd trim and the silver outside trim. There is a ****. Shove the
flathead in there and pry outward toward the silver trim while lifting
on the black inner trim vertically. The trick is to flex the black trim
toward the silver and then pull up. There are 6 plastic snaps on the top
and bottom, and 4 snaps on the left and right. If you've taken laptop
screens apart, you'll feel the similarity.
At Last! Okay this is how you open a Gateway FPD 1765 monitor. This Monitor open from the front first to reveal 4 screw under the black trim. Lay the screen face up, NOT FACE Down. So that the GATEWAY LOGO is looking at you. Carefully, lift up the black plastic trim slide a knife or slim tool, or your fingers will do,lifting the trim up a off. BE CAREFUL NOT TO BREAK THE POWER BUTTON WIRES, near the power on button. Then remove the 4 screw holding the back cover on. When you remove these screw the monitor is free, but careful there are 2 set of thin short wires that need to be un plug. You should be able to go for there.
Unplug power. Unplug VGA cable. Remove back of monitor. (four small Philips headed screws along the bottom rear. Remove screws attaching Monitor to it's base. Carefully, lean the screen away from back of case. Gently unplug 25 pin cable from the screen. Connect AC power. Screen should power on Gray to White. Ble light comes on Blue.Flickers then changes to Amber. Reconnect VGA cable. Monitor should work. Close up the monitor in reverse order to opening it. If these steps don't solve your monitor, consider replacing as cost of repairs may shock you.

Start by removing the base. There are 3 screws. First pull the base
plate off. Then remove 2 screws. Next remove the little rubber insert
in the center of the base bracket. You will need a long phillips to get

stare at the lcd with the buttons side on the top. Grab a small flat
head screw driver. Look at an angle in each of the corners between the
inner black lcd trim and the silver outside trim. There is a ****.
Shove the flathead in there and pry outward toward the silver trim
while lifting on the black inner trim vertically. The trick is to flex
the black trim toward the silver and then pull up. There are 6 plastic
snaps on the top and bottom, and 4 snaps on the left and right. If

Once you pry the black trim off the front. Disconnect the LCD Menu
button assembly and power button. Then flip over the LCD and lift off
the back shell. Looking at the back, remove the 2 connectors for the
speakers. Use a small flathead to pry the 4 Inverter power connectors.
These 4 connectors have a clip on them and are usually hard to pull out
using the wire. Once thoses 6 connectors are removed, remove the 2
phillips screws holding the AC power plug to the case. Also remove the
4 3/16 posts for the VGA and DVI ports. Next remove 4 screws, 2 screws
from each side of the LCD assembly. Hold the panel face down with the
aluminum tape in the bottom left. Lift the shield and guide the 6 wires
through the cage. While opening, look inside and disconnect the flat
ribbon cable as soon as you can. Put the LCD to the side. Remove 2
screws from the Video processing board, and 5 screws from the power
supply. Note: 1 of the 5 screws is longer. Rotate/slide the power PCB
away from the cage to clear the speaker and AC plug, Then rotate
towards the Video board. Disconnect 1 plug. The OTHER plug is SOLDERED
and must be disconnected from the video processing board.
1st remove the base cover by by squeezing to release the clips and remove the 6 base mounting screws. 2nd remove the 5 screws in the back cover. 3rd push and pry at the parting line to release the clips. 4th remove the base mount by removing the two attaching screws and sliding it down about a quarter inch. 5th remove the steel cover by removing the 4 wires, two screws from power outlet, two bolts from vga plug, and the other screw in the cover. and there you have it.
Just managed to open a FP17G+ monitor. My hope is that FP17G is similar and that this comes in handy.
There are 5 screws holding the casing together. Four are in the corners (black screws on my monitor). The 5th is right under the monitor stand (silver screw on my monitor.
To open the monitor, I had to:
1) Remove the monitor stand. To do so, you need to take out the two screws at the point where the base connects to the monitor (right above the pivot point) and slide out the monitor stand. THis should give you enough space to take out the 5th screw.
2) Unscrew the five remaining screws on the back of the monitor.
3) At the bottom edge of the monitor, there are two gaps between the front and back plastic panels of the monitor. You can place a wide screwdriver in this gap and gently pry apart the front and back of the monitor. Continue around the edge and the monitor will be open.
Best of luck... If you figure out what is wrong inside, let us know (I am trying to fix the same problem).
Your problem is not the switch. Probably you have faulty capacitors, deteriorated solder joints or worn out bulbs.
To open the case, remove the base (push button and lift off).
remove any screws under the base plate.
Pry the front and back cover apart, they snap together.
