SOURCE: my gateway monitor FPD1975W 19inch LCD won't turn

I have repaired similar FPD models. I have one of them on this very desk.
The GatewayFPDmodels develop problems after a couple or more years of use. Therepairsare fairly easy for the savvy technician. The power inverterboard inthe back of the monitor contains some capacitors, they may be470 and220 mfd or 680 mfd depending on when they were made, @ 10 16 or25volts, with a 105 deg. C temp rating. They go bad due to heatissuesand the currents they have to filter. Replacement of thecapacitorsusually restores operation. Use capacitorss of the sameratings as original for replacement.

Be advised, turning the monitor off when you are not using it will extend the life between these repairs.

Hope you find this helpful.

SOURCE: Gateway Monitor goes blank after a few seconds after startup.

Sounds like the inverter is broken or have a short circuit. This is a common failure on TFT displays.

Here is a website explaining this kind of failure:

SOURCE: Fuzzy screen on Gateway FPD1975W TFT LCD Monitor

With the pixels acting up and the monitor having the same problem on any computer that its connected to. The screen itself is bad and since there are no replacement screens for that monitor, you would have to buy a new monitor or get it replaced if its under warranty.

Resetting lenovo tab 10 x103f comes up in chinese how do i hard reset in english?


When the tablet boots up and first shows Chinese, you 'should' be able to select a different language. I assume the language list is in Chinese, so here are the characters that represent English:
??
or
??
or

If neither of those character pairs is on the list, or you do not have the option to change the language, please send me a picture of the screen once it has finished booting up and is waiting for input.

Gateway FPD1975W Monitor Vertical lines in the right side of the screen


Open the unit back up and check the cable that goes from the control board to the LCD panel and make sure it is plugged in securely. If this cable is not connected all the way it can cause lines on the display. Also while you are inside the unit check the capacitors on the power supply board. The tops should be flat, if you have any with bulging tops then you need to replace all of the ones on the power supply board. This can also cause display issues if the power supply is not putting out the correct voltages because of bad capacitors.

I cant change the language of my laptop. All written in chinese character. I dont understand any words.


The buttons are available on the Language bar only if you have added multiple languages or multiple keyboard layouts in Regional and Language Options in Control Panel.


You can minimize the Language bar and switch between languages or keyboards using the icons on the taskbar


When entering text, you can use the keyboard, speech recognition, or handwriting recognition interchangeably without clicking a button.


The letters on the language button represent the active language. For example, EN stands for English.

After the Windows XP progress bar is done, the monitor goes to a screensaver, its a black screen with a blue block moving around the screen, with some kind of chinese lettering. At this point I can't...


First,turn the power off on the screen. & unplug the screen from the computer.After it's disconnected turn it on. This is to see if this screen saver thing is the monitor or the pc doing it.
The Monitor, if working correctly will say "No Signal". ONLY.
You should be able to get to the menu here.
If the Screen saver thing is only present when connected to the PC then its not the monitor but more than likely a problem with Windows XP configuration.
Here is your user manual:

If you can set up your monitor now, do so. Make sure the language part of it is set to English settings.
