Monitor problem Screen problem: It was working fine,but suddenly the top part of the screen was alright, but the bottom was blank. I can't get to the start button, so I can try to get help. I don't know if that would help, because I'm not that knowledgeable. Can someone tell me what possibly is wrong and if it's fixable. Thank you Bob

Re: Monitor problem

Bob1927, This is typically caused by the actual LDC panel itself failing, not the electronics. It?s fixable but the panel is where a good part of the cost of the display comes from so it may not be economically repairable. I would call the manufacturer to see if your warranty is still active. Even if it is out of warranty you never know what will happen, especially if you're nice. Every once in a while I accidentally discover a little know repair/replacement program to cover a manufacturing defect. It doesn't hurt to call and let them make suggestions, they may even have a reasonably priced repair program Good luck and let us know how it turns out and as always please don?t forget to rate this posting.

Monitor was working fine , now i suddenly get a white/blank screen

Start the computer in safe mode if possible. If it works in safe mode, then you have a driver problem.
Also, if you can borrow another monitor I'd try that to see if your monitor is bad. If the second monitor works, you have a bad monitor.
If the second one doesn't work, your video card is bad.

Can't get a full screen on my monitor

You might have to look for your control pannel. Try to change the screen resolution. Try to increase or decrese it and see the difference.

Blank screen the screen has been working for over a year and all of a sudden went blank its not my pc as i plugged my pc into another screen and worked fine.... the standby flashing stops flashing when i...

Since you have tried another monitor with your computer, then we can only assume that your LCD monitor had gone bad.
If the light is green but you can't see anything on the screen, then most likely the backlight has gone bad. Unless you want to take the monitor apart, I would suggest buying a new monitor.

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.

You will need a new monitor screen. I have had two screens go on me recently and what you describes normally happens
