Gateway FPD2485W will not power on

My Gateway FPD2485W will not power up. No lights, nothing. It was working fine then all of a sudden during boot up everything went off. Litterally, started to power up - Gateway logo n tune - then poof (no smoke!) it went off. Basically, its like it is not plugged in. Of course it is plugged but nothing works, buttons, etc. I tried unplugging and straight in to outlet and not AC backup power strip.

Pretty sure I need to find a replacement power supply. Any ideas where I can find one? Thanks for the help!

    I jus had the same problem with this monitor. After 2 years of no problems, the monitor just is not receiving power. No LED lights, no usual start up sound. Tried plugging power into receptacles known to be good, but no luck. Read somewhere here about a power inverter board?

I'm pretty sure the inverter board is bad. you have to replace it if you can or you can let someone else do it. you should find some on ebay for about $80 (not too bad compared to the cost of the monitor: over $200). but its up to you. But first, you should find out if you are still under warranty. good luck. please rate!!

SOURCE: Flickering screen (likea strobe light)

Problem with flickering is in the board that is mounted to the back of the lcd screen. Part is only available in China.
Board will either need replacing or repairing (if it is repairable? Not all are)
I repair lcd monitors on ebay and just repaired one of these boards.

Gateway GM5442 PC Desktop Won't Boot!


3 BEEPS -RAM

Guest Posts: n/a 01-24-2005 We had a power failure in the office this weekend. All the systems are back
up and running fine, except for the receptionists. It's a Gateway
Professional Series. P4 1.3 Ghz. It is giving me three beeps. No boot up
screen and no video source (monitor light stays yellow instead of turning
green). I looked up the beep code and it says three beeps means the ram
needs reseated. Which I have done several times. Also, I have just put in
one stick in difference seats. I have also reseated all the cards at least
three times. I have switched the jumper to try to boot into setup mode.
Nothing there either. Popped out the cmos battery and put it back in. No
good either.

Has all the ram been fried? The fan on the cpu is still spinning. The cd-rom
ejects. I can't hear the hard drive spinning. I guess I can swap the hard
drive for a different one.

Anything I'm missing? YEP

I have a gateway FPD2485W tft lcd monitor and i start my monitor and after it shows gateway it then goes black. How can this be fixed


bonannorl, Maybe it can be fixed. You did not give any history of unit. Only "now" stuff. Is unit covered by Gateway warranty? How old is unit? Date of manufacture? Did unit work fine connected to your pc and this black or black n blank screen thing suddenly happen? Is screen also BLANK? Have you swapped-in old monitor to prove PC is OK? Your CCFL back-lit lcd monitor no different than any other brand in it's basic design and operation. Get into my fixya profile and read some of my testimonials and solutions to black or black n blank screen problems to help in your decision to DIY fix or contract out needed repair work. Most likely 2485w has problem with it's internal "switch-mode-power-supply"/"ccfl inverter supply"!! Let me know more info about unit.
