Question about Computers & Internet
This monitor has been flawless, thank God, since I first got it from Gateway back in August, 2006. I have not had the problems others have had until now. The monitor was working fine up to Tuesday evening. Early Wed. morning I turn on my system as usual and the monitor says "NO SIGNAL" and the power button goes from blue to yellow. I made no changes -- did nothing from Tuesday evening to Wed morning -- and this happened. I thought it was my computer but I heard windows XP and my desktop was "there" but I couldn't see it!! So I turned everything off and I got out my old Gateway FPD1810 monitor, hooked it up to dvi port from computer and all was fine!!! So I know it is NOT my computer or graphic card. Remember I made no changes to anything and this happened all of a sudden. I know that people have spoken about the dvi port on this monitor as failing all of a sudden, but on my monitor the dvi port still works with my Cablevision HD box and my Toshiba DVD recorder. I watch high definition television and watch dvd recordings still on this monitor!!
My issue is that my computer and the monitor are not syncing and I get no signal, no computer display! I still do get my cable box and dvd recorder! So my monitor is NOT dead -- it still functions beautifully with its menus and I can still watch HDTV, etc.
What is happening here? This problem just came out of the blue, with no provocation from me -- I did not download anything, make any changes to anything, period!
email@example.com Same problem, no signal to monitor. I have replaced the video card with no luck. Any suggestions as to what it may be? Motherboard?
Maybe your monitor is too old to your pc.. because it can't catch up the HI frequency of Graphics that you set up in your system.. but lets check first your system.. you need to get a new monitor or an extra one taht can capture the frequency of your system.. then ill give you the step.. here it is.. in windows XP,, right click on desktop then properties.. after you click the properties a windows will appear.. display properties..go to setting, below click advance., then find monitor in general tab. then you see there the monitor setting... try to change it to 60 hertz... then restart your pc then try to use your old monitor.. ^^

This is a common problem with many LCD monitors. The
printed circuit board that provides a stable voltage for the monitor to operate
from starts to fail. The PCB can be replaced, when/if they are available, or repaired
in most cases at a much lower cost. for more information on this email me at
