Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor
My Monitor On hte computer is on and the light on the power is blue like its on but theres no picture on the screen its just grey. When the computer first starts you see the gateway and the windows xp start up things but when the computer starts the screen goes grey
Every now and then I inadvertently push a button on the lower right side of the monitor that causes the display to go blank as if it has stopped receiving a signal from the computer. Unfortunately I can not recall what the settings or buttons are that are involved, but I suspect it is the top or bottom button. Each time it happens I rediscover which button it is using trial and error. Eventually I push a button several times to 'scroll' through what I *think* are display input options. The normal desktop appears with one of the options. I think the button might be the one that includes the PIP option on the menu.

Try to start in safe mode and check if you can change some of the video settings (resolution, refresh rate, etc). Maybe one of these settings is such that the monitor cannot handle properly. To get into Safe Mode, press F8 as soon as you see the Gateway logo on the screen while booting the PC.
