    My computer and monitor were working fine last night but my monitor is not working this morning, not even the orange power light. I have unplugged all cords and replugged but still not working. Initially this morning the screen was white but when I moved the mouse nothing happened so I turned off the computer and monitor but still nothing happened when I turned it back on.

    I have the same monitor and its been tried on two computers already. It turns on and then flickers out. I unplug the power cord and it turns back on for a few seconds and goes out again. Do I trash it? If so, is there a place I can take to possibly recycle it and get some type of rebate. If there is, I know that the rebate would be much but its better than nother. Please email me at wgdepot @ yahoo . com I left spaces just in case posting email address aren't allowed to be posted. Sorry if I'm breaking rules!

I got the same problem.. few years old.. i turned the monitor off yesterday.. and it wouldn't come back on.. i messed with the plugs for about an hour.. nothing.. i kept it on overnight and the next day(today) it started.. so beofre you go and dump it.. let it warm up for a day and see if anything happens.. now i'm scared to turn it off.

Is this a Gateway FPD1960 monitor? If so the power supply inside of it died. It is a common problem with these. I repair the Gateway FPD1960 monitor so if you want to trash it let me know. You can contact me at sure-power(at)

Monitor works intermittently

Hi Michael, it does sound like the monitor then. The most likely cause is bad capacitors in the power supply. Typically a cheap repair but you do have to solder and such. Unless you have to have a very expensive monitor its probably better to just replace it since basic monitors are so cheap these days. Good luck.

Try a different video card or disconnect the one you have in your PC and use the VGA monitor connection on the motherboard. If it works your video card is gone.

Gateway FPD1975W black 19 inch LCD

most likely is the power supply in the monitor.
gateway LCD has a building power supply in the monitor. it supplies 38W to the lamp.
since there is no display, it tells me that there is no power to the monitor.
if try another monitor and it works fine. then the problem is the monitor. (dispaly lamp is good for 17 Years- according to the tech spec.) but the power supply is pushing too much power.
other vendors max power is apporximately 30W.

make sure there is nothing behind the monitor and has good air flow. Since there is no fan in the unit. it need to vent the hot air natually.

Monitor won't work

Try adjusting the video connection on the back of the monitor and kinda wiggle it from side to side to see if there's a loose connection. One other thing to check (In case it's a newer LCD) is that the video isn't switched to DVI (It should be automatic, but it can't hurt to take note of this)
