Gateway 900G monitor

I need the driver for the gateway 900G Monitor. I called Gateway (as it was not listed on their website) and the rep responded that they no longer support the Monitor (made in Dec 2005)... Thanks, Steve.

I'm writing this using a recently repaired Gateway 900g. You may be correct about the power supply, as that was the problem on this unit. There was absolutely no response with this unit. No blue LED, no dim display. Nothing.

WARNING: BE SURE TO UNPLUG THE AC LINE CORD. THE POWER SUPPLY HAS DANGEROUS 120 VAC PRESENT IF LEFT PLUGGED IN. If you don't know what you're doing, it's best not to attempt a repair!!!

Disassembly is a bit tricky, and there's a variety of different sized screws used; so keep track as you go. First you remove the front bezel (be careful as the two control boards on the lower right need to be disconnected). There are two screws (lower left and lower right) that secure the shell, the rest of the frame is just a snap fit around the perimeter.

Then remove the 6 screws that hold the LCD frame to the rear plastic shell. Careful here as well, as you must disconnect the back light cables AND the signal cable to separate the LCD from the Power Supply / Signal Processing board.

The Power Supply board mates to the Signal Processing board thru a 2x5 pin header. This contains convenient points to check the +12V and +5V supplies. In my case the +12V was OK, but the +5V was reading about +2.5V...not good! THIS IS REALLY DANGEROUS TO CHECK AS THE 120VAC IS ONLY AN INCH AWAY.

Here was the key symptom on my unit. Your's may not be the same. If I disconnect the Power Supply from the Signal Processing board, then the +12V and +5V read correctly (as well as the +16V that goes to the Backlight Inverter section).

However, once I connect the Signal Processing board, the +5V drops to +2.5V. However, the Signal Processing board seems to run correctly off of an external supply drawing about 300mA.

On closer inspection of the Power Supply board, I notice that 4 capacitors had buldging tops (domed). This indicated some stress. These were capacitors C205, C206 (470uF/25V) in the +16V section; and C210 (470uF/25V) and C209 (220uF/25V) both in the +5V section. I didn't have a Capacitance Meter handy, so it was simpler to just replace all four parts with similar values. (There's a lot of latitude in making these substitutions.) But be sure you have voltages a *least* greated than those needed; i.e. 16V or 5V. They used 25V to have plenty of headroom.

After replacing the 4 Capacitors, the Voltages and Blue LED responded normally. After reconnecting to the LCD assembly, all was well. Reverse the disassembly process, and you are ready to go.

Gateway LP2207 64 bit drivers


If you can't find the drivers anywhere else, do this: There is a UL Code listing on the back on the monitor's electrical ID tag on the back label. It has a number on it: UL (number). Go to the UL site and look up the number, it will tell you who actually made the monitor for Gateway. (Gateway doesn't
make monitors, it rebrands them.) Go to the mfr's site and download drivers for the monitor of the same size as yours using the 64 bit drivers. It will take a bit of slouthing, but can't be done successfully. (Ex. Sampo is actually Hitachi.)

Gateway 19" lcd color monitor, product no. fpd1960 model no. 900g


Hello,

The most common cause of power up issues with the Gateway FPD1960 monitor is a failure of the filter capacitors on the AIP-0100 power supply board in the unit. Here is a link to repair information for that board.

Flickering could be a loose power connection but the hissing is indicative of a potential short. for your own safety, I'd get this to a TV type repairman asap.

I need a driver for my gateway monitor model nl2501. Wont go higher than the 640 by 480 point. Bad picture


You don't need a driver for you monitor, you need a driver for your video card. The first step is to find out what video card you have. Once you have loaded the proper video card drivers you will be able to see higher resolutions to select from in your display settings box.

Gateway 900G does not stay on, has power


the_princes, On the rear side of LCD screen that you look at are two each long, straight, cold-cathode-fluorescent-tubes that need to "LIGHT-UP"and provide pure WHITE light to be reflected through the LCD glass panel that you look at from the front side! If you don't have any luck with Gateway providing warranty service or doing a swapout with them, then you should possibly look into having it Refurbished by someone locally in your area. I highly recommend that you go to youtube and watch some video clips of LCD MONITOR REPAIR to see exactly what you are getting involved with. When making a post to tthis site you should always give some "history" along with the trouble "symptom" such as how old is unit and approximate total amount of "ON" time the unit has. I hope you can use the info provided. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@aol.com Bye for now.

You can check the fuse on the monitor and replace it. In case the fuse is OK check the cable connector, display card on the motherboard.

Gateway 19 in flat monitor Model 900G


Does the power button light up or blink at all ?
It probably is the power board/ inverter. I fix many of these.

To TeeKO, did you try moving it back to see if it was maybe a bad household receptical ?
