My Gateway FRD22" widescreen monitor won't display. Was working fine and then one day I moved the mouse to disengage te screen saver and the screen faded to black . The"On" switch won't stay on, either. Upon boot up it is"on" then goes to hybernate and then to amber or "sleep" mode. I have reconneted an older monitor to the computer and haveful display, do it is not the video card or connections. The 22" screen is operable, because is diplays the Gateway logo troughout boot up. It just won't disply anything else after boot. No desktop display, no nothing. Briefly will, on occassion, show desktop, then shuts down after about 5 seconds. Any help?

If you see a message box that says "Power Saving Mode" after pressing the power button, then it simply means that the monitor/display is not detecting the computer. Check the connection/cable between the display and the computer and make sure your computer is not in standby mode by moving your mouse. From what you stated in your problem, you dont need a inverter or a bulb. If you have any image like the message box displayed then its working fine. It just isnt seeing any signal changes on the input and therefore goes into power saving mde. Try another cable or hook it up to a different computer to check the cable.
Yes you can adjust the screen .For that go display property in start->controlpanel. Then set scree resolution to 1024*768 then apply and ok. Then display is fine. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
If this is still under warranty, then Gateway (MPC) can repair this. Probably you homeowners insurance will pay for it. Make sure that the monitor data cable is plugged in correctly. Whenever we have storm my wife unplugs all the cables on the computer. Sometimes when we reconnect they get plugged into an inactive port, thus no pic. If none of these help then please contact me at email@example.com and we can discuss a repair plan.
It could be a faulty power cord. Try plugging it in and moving the cord around in the areas where it takes the most movement. Do the same with the data cable to see if you get a response there. If your cables are fine, the problem is most likely hardware in the monitor - in that case you're better off replacing the monitor.

have a BenQ FP791 17 in LCD. I was working until one day I turned it on
and it now only displays an all white screen. I plugged it in to
another computer, same problem. I can add it as a second monitor to
windows but all it displays is white. Windows finds it and the mouse
can move over to it but I do not see anything. I am handy with a
soldering iron, but not nessisarily diagnosing electronic problems.
Comment posted on Oct 26, 2008I ended up replacing the bulging capacitors on the board inside, and now it works. Thanks for all the comments and help.
