The Gateway FPD1960 is one of a few models that develop problems after a couple or more years of use. The repairs are fairly easy for the savvy technician. The power inverter board in the back of the monitor contains some capacitors, they may be 470 and 220 mfd or 680 mfd @ 25 volts, with a 105 deg. C temp rating. They go bad due to heat issues and the currents they have to filter. Replacement of the capacitors reliably restores operation.

Screen keeps displaying "adjusting...."


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Take it to a repair shop.

Everything is too big on the screen when I get on the internet


Try selecting a much higher resolution from the menu
1650x 1200 should be ok for a 19" or 1260x760 or something within those parameters

I had that same problem with my 17 inches LCD monitor. The problem why it
does that is due to the video card having trouble to catch up with the LCD
monitor. I set the mhz on the video card to 75 hertz and the problem went
away. set your LCD monitor at 1280 x 1024 and you won't see the flickering.

Sometimes, It is the video card that is causing the problem or interference from
magnetic waves in the house.

Black flickering line vertickally through monitor screen


It could be either of these:

You're monitor is dying and you need a replacement (Starlogic brand is notorious for dying early and giving poor performance)

You're graphics card is going out. If you have an extra monitor laying around, take out the Starlogic one and plug in the other to see if the same results occur, if not, it's the Starlogic monitor, if the problem still persists, you need a new graphics card or need to update your current drivers.

No display, clipping sound appear


The clipping sound is the internal safety switch that keep shutting down the monitor.
It means there is an internal problem on the main board (overvoltage, bad component , short).
Try unplugging power cord and leaving it unplugged two or three hours, this will reset ICs by draining power completely from circuits, it is called hard reset, it rarely works.
CRT monitors waste up to 15 times more energy than TFT screen, if your CRT starts giving troubles, then it is a good time for upgrading it to a new TFT.

Thin yellow line on the right of the LCD Screen


all those sounding intelligent and saying that replacing lcd hardware will fix the problem probably didnt have the problem themseleves . i had exactly same problem with samsung syncmaster 2043swx monitor . i just restarted and booted into safe mode ( by pressing F8 key at startup ) tried changing reolution in display settings . rebooted in normal mode and asll lines are gone and never appear again . i am uisng windows Vista . so i think it is probably a driver glitch something .

Thin yellow line on the right of the LCD Screen


If it's a straight line from top to bottom panel could be defective.Not much you can do as cost of panel will compare with a new monitor.
