Question about Gateway 300 C PC Desktop
What does a blue screen with this written mean?
self test G
sheck your pc and signal cable R
monitor is working B
does it mean my hard drive is dead?
No, that means either your video card or video cable is bad; most likely the video card. Assuming, of course, that the computer is turned on and seemingly running when you get that message. Basically it is telling you that the monitor is fine, it's just not receiving any input from your computer provided the computer is on. Thanks, and please take a moment to bive this solution a fixya rating. :c)

It means that the monitor is not receiving a signal from the video card of the computer.
Possible failures are as follows:
1. The monitor input cable is no longer connecteds to the video casd.
2. The computer is not powering on
3. The video card has failed
4. The input Select option of the LCD is set wrong

The floating 'Dell Self-test Feature Check' dialog box should appear on-screen on a black background if the monitor cannot sense a video signal and is working correctly. While in self-test mode, the power LED remains green. Also, depending upon the selected input, one of the dialogs shown below will continuously scroll through the screen.
If your monitor screen remains blank after you use the previous procedure, check your video controller and computer system; your monitor is functioning properly.
- This box also appears during normal system operation if the video cable becomes disconnected or damaged.
- Turn off your monitor and reconnect the video cable, then turn on both your computer and the monitor.
