I looked at Wall-Mart for the universal power supply. Yes It is external but what they told me was that I had to get it from Gateway or buy it online. I have tried every extra 12 volt that I can get my hands on but can't find the right one that will fit apperantly it's something that I am just stuck until I get the one that came with the original moniter or find one that will plug in. The moniter has the cord that hooks into the back of the tower it's a long skinny blue one, but the power cord hooks in on the back of the moniter. Thanks for trying to help me. Sorry if I sound like a toatl idiot it's my first time on here and I am still learning how this site works

Re: have tried wall-mart
Well now if you go asking shop folk for this -they wont use their imagination, just in case they get it wrong and you sue.
Just be sure that the voltage you need is - what it is - 12V did you say
Then go the the electrical isles small items and you will see usually in a bubble pack on the rack a power supply- with a strip of various connectors.
The power supply will have a slider switch to select vorltages from 1.5-3-4.5-6-7.5-9-12 volts.
These will also have a coloured patch.
The connectors are also coloured on the tip.
Pick the connector colour that matched the voltage colour- plug in into the cord and lug it into the monitor .
And it does not work Huh!
Then unplug the connector from the cord and turn it around plug it in- then it it will work.

Hi, what was the LCD displaying is that he is not sensing any signal from the computer video port that is why it is prompting "check signal cable". Have you tried checking the pins of your video cable from your LCD? if OK please plug in the cable again when your PC is already open to check that signal will pass thru and lets see what happen. If still the same, try to isolate it with laptop as external video if you have to check the LCD will work with other PC. If the same, replace the signal cable of your LCD if it is removable to further check the problem.
If your monitor uses a power supply (the brick that plugs into the wall, and then a smaller cord plugs into the monitor), then it's more likely the power supply that's gone out than the monitor itself.
Find someone with a multimeter to check the output voltage on the power supply. There will be a label on the power supply that says what the DC voltage (VDC) is supposed to be. If the meter shows no voltage when the power supply is plugged into the wall, then you just need a new power supply.
Do not try using another power supply as a substitute unless it is a specific match to your monitor. They vary widely by output voltage, etc. and using the wrong one could fry your monitor.
Are you looking for the cord that plugs into the the electrical outlet that connects to the external power supply? Or are you are looking for the external power supply as well? If you are looking for just the cord itself, they should be common item that you should be able to purchase and any appliance store.
If you are looking for the cord and the external power supply, there are many online outlets that you can look like ebay, etc. You need to search for a 15 Volt 4 amp universal power supply. I would recommend the universal power supply since it will come with multiple adapters plugs so you should be able to find the right one to fit your monitor. Also note the polarity of the the plug otherwise it might damage your monitor.
Not much you can do. I would recommend just buying a nice affordable general brand LCD monitor. Don't go to best buy or some place that specializes in that, you can get it cheaper at wal mart or k mart. possibly sears or Sam's Club
Use a microfiber cloth and they also sell a product at wall mart in electronics for flat screen tvs monitors and so forth just for the purpose of cleaning them. But a microfiber cloth should handle the bulk of it. if not go to walmart and take a peek.
I would not recommend this because my monitor will probably burn up from doing this but; I just lost my power supply last night and I took a power cord from my seagate external 500 GB hard drive which has the same pin size plug in that goes into the monitor and plugged it directly into the wall. I assume that the external hard drive uses the same ac to dc converter although it looks just like a cord with no inverter capabilies. Not sure of the amps though and this could burn up the monitor completely. Works for now.
I assume this model comes with an external power supply- that is a package that plugs into the out let.
you can buy at places like Wallmart a universal power supply, that has a variety of connectors and a switch to change the voltage.
the connectors have a colour code and match the voltage slider which also has a colour patch.
Take a look at the monitor to see if the operating voltage is mentioned- but is does not matter.
what you do is take a connector- not plugged to the cord and fit it to the power inlet- you get several connector and only one will fit -the right one.
Match the the colour to the voltage slide on the power pack and you are in business- well maybe - I bet first time it will not work
That's OK simply unplug the connector from the cord and reverse the pins [reverse the polarity]
