No video output, and no power down


Check the monitor plug for a pin that has become pushed in. If the pins are good test the monitor with another computer.

Also check for a second monitor output, as the one you are using may not be active.

As far as the power button not working there could be several explanations. The button itself may not work. If when pushed the button turn the computer on, then you may want to check within the bios power management setting to verify the power button is setup to turn the pc off.

  1. If the system has integrated video with a DVI expansion card, you can use two monitors.
  2. If the system has a PCI-E dual head video card (2 video connections on the video expansion card) then you can use 2 monitors.
  3. If the system has a single head PCI-E video card (ATI HD2400) with a single DVI port, then that card disables the on-board VGA port.
So first you have to find out what the hardware configuration actually is for the Video Card. Then we can look at the monitors and how they are connected.
Post back with details on the video card and the monitors you are trying to connect if you need further information.

2.Select properties.
3.Select "ScreenSaver".
4.Select "Power" under Monitor power option.
5.There select "never" from Turn off monitor (drop down menu).

Now your monitor will not turn off automatically.

My error; my Gateway is GM5688E. The monitor shuts


Try to determine first whether its a no video problem from the computer or the monitor. Try a known good working monitor and see if the monitor still shuts off, if it does then you know the problem lies within the computer. If it doesn't shut off then you know your original monitor is bad.
