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.

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:

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.
