Gateway lp 2407 monitor boots,but goes black with horizontal lines across screen

I just got this gateway lp2407 about three days ago. worked fine, then i noticed that i couldn't select the right resolution (1900 x 1200) so i ran the driver free program, and just after it installed or tried to install the first outdated driver, my screen went black with horizontal lines across the top portion of the screen. I'm running 2003 xp so i figured i needed to update drivers to fix the resolution problem. Now it will boot up but after a minute or two after windesktop appears, it will go black with the lines across. the pattern will change if you move the monitor around(like tipping it forward). can you please tell me where to start looking. Physical or configuration?

Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages.
Good Luck!

Take your Agp card with you to the shop. You do not need to go through Gateway, but there are serveal formats of AGP regarding the voltages.

By the sounds of it you have the newer version of AGP so finding a replacement card won't be a problem. The only real issue you have is AGP cards cost a lot more then their PCI-e conterparts.

Going from a GeForce 4, look for something like an FX5700 or even a 6200. Don't let the sales guys get in your ear either. Putting any higher video card then these in your current system and your wasting your money.

Steve
there are so many things that can go wrong, the best thing is to take/send to a professional , or i can take a look at it.
many repairs are the standard capacitor replacement, but many others should be done by someone that has a bit of background in electronics to test all the circuits. For more help i can be contacted at Sprint6@zoominternet.net.
if you would like i can test the unit, at no cost to you, and give an estimate of repair cost once i have evaluated the condition of the unit.

Hi.

The camera is obviously faulty and needs to be returned to the manufacturer or the store for replacement or repair. The warranty will cover any cost so will be done free of charge.

You have every right to be angry as it is brand new.

Lg driver download


If you're talking about using an LG TV as a computer monitor, the generic display driver will suffice. I've never seen any noticeable improvement on display or features when Windows displays the monitor correctly or as a generic. If your resolution is too low and you couldn't increase it, the problem is likely your resolution setting or video card driver, not your monitor driver.

There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.
