Plugging into the laptop as an alternative monitor needs you to set the Laptop to divert the signal to the external monitor.
As you did not mention the laptop I cannot go further  except to suggest you read the manual with regard this situation.
On some models of laptop this function is actuated  by pressing a certain key- which may have for example a BLUE symbol on  in the front edge whilst pressing another key in the region of the space bar with a blue symbol on it.
Then manual will tell all

Go into the menu and make sure that it is set up for the type of signal you can receive. Some will receive terrestial and some are set to receive digital. If it is set up wrong, it will give the no signal message because there is either no digital available or no terrestial avalable.

I bought a Gateway FPD1830 monator from a friend. What does it need other than a power cord to hook to a dell computer?

VGA or DVI cable, this cable has approx 1" x 1/2 inch blue or white ends and should connect both to the monitor and to the computer to transmit the video signal between the two.

First Try charging the battery fully, then try turning on the computer. If it goes out suddenly it will more than likely need to be replaced.

You can request a new battery from the gateway website under customer support.

If you are not sending the battery back and are planning to throw it out if it is no good, Refer to the Material Safety and Data Sheet for proper disposal.
