Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor

1 Answer

New ACER 1751 monitor added

I am trying to attach an ACER 1751 monitor to my Dell Dimension desktop. No cables came with the monitor (it was a hand-me-down). I have attached the VGA hookup from the org Dell monitor over to the ACER. I have horizontal lines moving across the screen and there is a large swath (approx 1.5") on the left side of my screen that is black, resulting in my not being able to see the entire page. I am missing probably an inch on the right.

I have the org GForce Nvidia (??) video card that came with the machine.

I can't find anything on this monitor aside from the original question, here. Would finding the DVI-D cable and hooking it up that way solve my problem? Or can I leave the VGA hookup and do some adjustments on my system?

Any thoughts appreciated.

Thank you.

Try going into Start - Control panal - add new hardware. First let windows look for itself ;then If it doesn't find the monitor then tell it monitor and see if it will find the correct driver for it. Worth a try.

Screen is pink on my dell dimension 3100


Check your monitor cable first! Try reconnecting your display cable both at the computer and monitor ends. If it's still pink, try reinstalling the vga graphics driver from the Dell Utility CD-ROM (Or download from Dell's support site http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/product-support/product/dimension-3100/drivers then select you PC model's video driver and re-install it. if after re-installing the video driver your display's still pink, try connecting to a different monitor - if a different monitor displays correctly, then its your monitor that's faulty. If it's pink on a different monitor too, then it's your PC video hardware that's got the problem - At least you'll know whether it's the monitor that's faulty or whether it's your computer's graphics hardware. (if your computer's video chip is faulty, then I suspect you'll need a replacement motherboard - $$$ - as I think the video is "on-chip" on the Dimension 3100 - so it may be time to consign it to the scrapheap and buy a new system if you can afford to)

Have a dell 8200 desktop with an LG tv monitor attached and when I try to boot keeps going to power save mode


You have the wrong cable from the pc to the monitor.Look in the back of monitor and you will see a cord with a blue connector and one with a white connector.
Try the one not in use.If that does not fix it your gpu does not support the monitor.

Hi, I have a dell dimension e521 I hook up a old monitor to it and, it work but whei i hook up a new flat screen monitor it said (can not display video


Are you using the same VGA cable. Try to use the same VGA cable which is there is in Old Monitor

Though it can be issue with the resolution setting also of the Video

For that when you plug in your desktop to old monitor bring the Resolution to the minimum and then Connect it to your New Monitor

My monitor has gone to Power Save Mode


Hello,
If your monitor is going in Power save mode it can be cause by following reasons.
>Check the data cable going from monitor to your Dell Dimension 4600 Tower is connected properly.The connector will be blue or white in colour.
>If the Dell Dimension 4600 Tower is powering on.

If still in power save mode then try to shutdown Tower and monitor,disconnect power cable from tower and monitor.Hold the power button on tower for 15 seconds.Then again try to connect monitor and check,if still nogo,and if tower has no lights then issue with motherboard or video card or power supply.If possible try connect spare known good monitor.

Thankyou

Reset my dell computer


Do a system restore with the system and driver cd's that came with the computer. It will delete everything that is on the drive and restore it like new. If you added any new cards ( graphic ) or any different hardware that the pc came with, remove first, then boot from cd to reinstall windows and drivers. Then reinstall any hardware that might have been added. Also, disconnect any USB plug like printer or scanner. Just have mouse,keyboard, monitor attached.
