Question about Gateway FPD1760 Monitor
First of all, your computer is 6 years old! Time to replace it. Period. When you do have a problem, please explain in finer detail what you perceive as the problem. I have never seen an jumpy computer. I have seen monitor flicker, loss of color, out of range, etc., but never a jumpy computer. Are you talking about the computer (box) itself or the monitor? Is there an earthquake going on causing the computer to bounce up and down? Help us help you by being more informative on you needs.

Try another monitor to determine if the trouble is in the monitor or the computer's video circuitry. If it's due to the computer, install a new video card or replace the current one.
If the monitor is at fault, it is possible that bad capacitors in its power supply might be causing the problems, or there may be poor solder connections. Both are typical failures in many products. But given the relatively low cost of monitors today, repair is often uneconomical. Not too many shops will even attempt repairs. There's not a lot you can do except to replace the it.
Yes, it's only a couple of years old, and you have every right to feel "this should not be happening." But the sad fact is that consumer products are very cheaply made these days. Once a product is past its warranty period, the manufacturer doesn't care any more. That's also why stores push you to buy replacement warranties when you purchase a product.
