Question about PC Desktops

2 Answers

Hi. I have a Gateway 21-inch LCD Flat Panel Display (FPD2185W) R1 that just stopped displaying anything. The power light is on but I get no image, not even the NO SIGNAL message. have tried two compouters, tried VGA and DVI connections - nothing. Is there a reset sequence or do I have a major HW issue? Is it worth fixing? LCD is only 14 months old but it is out of warranty. Thanks!

Take a flassh light and shine it on the screen wile the computer is booted up if the image is there but not lit up you need an inverter if its not thabn no its most likely not worth fixing you can get a new one for under $100 with shipping that size .FYI gateway does not make any monoters what so ever they by them from lg pioneer ect if you buy directly from the maker not gateway you will get a longer warrenty

No, your lcd is shot and would be expensive to repair, u should get a new one and also use a surge protector.

Screen on ma2a gateway doesn't turn on. Is it the video card?


Borrow a monitor and plug it into the VGA port. That might tell you whether the graphics card is bad.

Gateway On GZ7108 has no video on monitor..can here windows loading no picture


There are more than one scenarios for thi s..The first one .it may be a damaged video card ..but usually when teh video card is damaged you can not see anything at all ..not even teh devices being loaded..and in your case ..if you see anything on it when it starts it is not the card but just the display settings ..
second ..may be the display settings ...like I said ...and in this case you check if the main display was not disabled..by pressing the Fn key and the F key suggested for monitor ..(to be sure it is something like that use a external monitor and see if you have image ..)
3rd ..it may be the inverter for the display screen went bad ..and need to be changed..In this case if you look closely ..you have a shadow image on it..
It also may be a wrong driver being loaded or wrong settings on the driver ..settings that are not supported by the lcd screen ..and in this case will load the devices and you can see it starting ..but going black when it loads windows..and the action is to start windows in safe mode..(press the f9 or F8 to see the start modes) ..and in safe mode remove the video driver and install it again ..or try to engage the system restore for it ..and restore the settings to an earlier date when it worked..

My monitor screen is ok for awhile but suddenly turns a dull yellow color. I just bought it a few months ago.


Hi,
you must adjust the display settings in the software program that was being used to change the display setting.
  • If you have a flat panel LCD monitor, unplug the monitor power cable, wait about 30 seconds, reconnect the cable and then turn on the monitor. This resets the electronics on the monitor.
  • Make sure the monitor has power - the light on the monitor is on. If the light on the monitor is off, the monitor does not have power. Connect it to a different power outlet.
  • If the monitor has a detachable video cable, obtain a second monitor cable for testing purposes in case the cable is bad.
  • follw the another steps-
  • Replace the monitor power cable.
    1. Turn on the monitor. If the monitor displays an image, you are done. If the monitor remains blank, continue using these steps.
    2. Replace the video cable. Turn on the monitor. If the monitor displays an image, you are done. If the monitor remains blank, continue using these steps.
    3. If the monitor does not work after replacing the cables, replace or service the monitor

    Gateway FPD2275W 22-inch Widescreen High-Definition LCD Display model # 7010756R. Has display problem-the images are appears dim and can't brighetn. I don't know what to do


    there should be a button on the display to bring up the options or menu which you need to look for brightness/contrast if these are both at setting 100 your backlighting CCFL tubes (cold cathode flourescent) like flourescent bulbs in the ceiling are burning out slowly they can be replaced but it is not a common repair for a local computer store you may neeed to find a specialist.
