Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor

1 Answer

I recently bought an ASUS external monitor to use in parallel with my Gateway laptop. The external monitor will stop working (go blank, but remain on) after about 30 seconds when I plug it into my laptop's VGA port. The external monitor seems to work fine on other computers. Therefore, I am convinced that my VGA port is malfunctioning. What advice can you offer me?

Is it a BRAND NEW monitor? The only way to be SURE your VGA port is bad really, is to see if it does the same thing with a completely different monitor. What I'm getting at is it could be the monitor itself. Maybe the monitor has some kind of "sleep" mode set? (There is such a thing as brand new AND defective. It's not common, but it does happen.) See if you can get the manual for the monitor, and read up on the different applications this one has. Most monitors have multiple ways to hook up. On the other hand, if your VGA port IS defective, it's probably safer to send out for repairs than replace the port yourself, unless you happen to be an accomplished solderer/electrician.

Hope this helps.

I have a Gateway laptop whose screen just broken and is cracked. However, I also do have an external Gateway monitor, model NO: FPD1730. I hooked up the external monitor to the laptop and it only works in...


Excuse me if I'm talking below you level of expertise...

With an external monitor on a laptop you usually have to activate the plug where you've connected the external monitor cable . This requires pressing 2 keys in combination, usually a FUNCTION button + a specific function key. Yeah, they're named almost the same thing, but I'll try to keep it straight.

On your keyboard's function keys (above the numeric keys typically) should be small pictures besides the standard F1, F2, etc. which are usually in white. You're looking for the picture that resembles a monitor. On my Thinkpad the small pictures are colored blue, and the monitor is on the F7 key. It so happens that my FUNCTION button (different than the function keys we were just talking about) which is located in the lower left of my keyboard is also blue. Yours might be in a different position, but I'm giving you an idea when to look.

When you find the Function Button, press and hold this key and the correct Function key (F1, F2, whatever). You might need to press this 1 or 2 times to get the correct monitor setting. I'm not exactly sure of the order but you'll activate the external monitor, then another combination press will activate both displays, then a 3rd will do another setting, then back to the beginning. If you miss it the first time just slowly press the combination until you get what you're looking for. Be patient, and press once every 5 seconds or so, giving the computer enough time to change its settings.

Hope this helps!

First test if it works on an external monitor. If it does you will need to clear the CMOS. To clear it:
remove the battery, unplug the cord, and hold the ON button down for 30-60 seconds. Then turn it on. Thats how you clear it on most laptops.
If it does not work on the external monitor, you probally have a bad video card and need to replace the old one

I flashed the bios on my gateway m675 and it stopped working. It turns on but screen is blank. If I hook it up to an external monitor I can get into bios. Is there anyway to get it back to the way it was?...


pls check the bios set up externally if you mistakenly turn the brightness down, and correct it

or see if ther is any brightness button you accidentally pushed on the top of your laptop

or ther could be some problem with your LCD inverter or the LCD itself.
