Download some free hard drive testing software, like seagate tools,from:  Seagate.com  or another had drive manufactor. They run from a disk w/o windows . If the hard drive checks out try reinstalling the system. Another quick test , for conformation is to hook up you monitor to anther computer just to make sure it is not the monitor. It rarely is.

Gateway monitor pixels discolored on monitor


This happens when you keep a device close to monitor which uses wireless technology or signal(Cell phone, wireless router or modem). Also try to make distance between speakers and monitor, as speakers contains magnets and that causes such issues.

When turn on the gateway screen apear, but the monitor turn off or black and not apear nothing my computer is gateway profile 4 all in one


Your power settings may need to be changed, it appears to be going into sleep mode or power saving mode.

If you are using Vista, Click Start> Control Panel > Power Options > "choose when to turn off display" (in the left hand pane) and check that it says at least 10 minutes. Click apply and then ok.

Alternatively, right click on your desktop, select "personalise" and click on screen saver - then select "change power settings" to bring you to the same thing.

If you have xp, right click on your desktop and select "properties" then "screensaver| > "Power" and change it to turn off the monitor after 10 minutes. Click apply then ok.

If your monitor is going to sleep, either press a key or wiggle the mouse to wake it up.

Gateway profile 4 all in one computer


Before you buy anything else try it with another monitor. Obviously if the other monitor works then its not your motherboard its your monitor. Update video drivers to ensure you have the latest.
