Question about Gateway M-6307 Notebook PC

1 Answer

My computer monitor will not display properly

My gateway M series 6307 will turn on as usual but the monitor is so dark that the start-up menu is barely visible. I already tried adjusting screen brightness, color, etc. I'm not sure if it is a problem with my laptops monitor or if the bulb itself is dead. Is there any support/advice you could give me in order to resolve this problem.

Thank you.

This is the first way. use external monitor. if you get clear view then you have a problem with LCD INVERTOR (you say bulb).

i hope it works.

I set the resolution far too high by mistake on my Gateway FPD1960 TFT LCD monitor. Not the screen shows "Frequency out of range". The side controls on the monitor do not respond. Please help,if you can.


Hi
Firstly try turning everything off and disconnecting from the mains. Leave for a few minutes and then turn them back on again. This should set the monitor back to default setting, and also the computer.
If this doesn't work, try connecting the computer to a different monitor and using the "display properties" to set the display card to a resolution that you know the Gateway monitor will accept eg probably 1024 x 768. Then reconnect the computer to the Gateway monitor. This should work as the computer usually sets the monitor resolution.
If this doesn't work the only other option I can think of is to use the buttons on the monitor to get into the onscreen menu, which should be resolution independent and using the menu to change the resolution.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

How to start gateway normal mode


Shut off the unit; when you turn it back on pay attention to the screen as it should display a message to hit a certain key on the keyboard that will bring you to a screen that will allow to chose starting in normal mode. This message will come up quick on the screen so you need to choose the key on the keyboard rather quickly or the system will just start-up as it usually does.

Display comes on, says "Digital," then goes black.


I'm not sure what's happening, but here are some questions to ask yourself:

-Are all the cables properly connected? Monitor to computer, monitor to wall?
-Is your graphics card properly inserted in your computer?
-Does the display work when plugged into a different computer?
-Is the computer plugged in and turned on?

There's a troubleshooting section in the user's manual, found here:

At start up my viewsonic va1912wb display blinks several times then i can see the picture but it is dark almost unreadable. Today it went darker than yesterday. HELP!


If it is dark due to brightness adjustment, get that adjusted. Usually when you adjust the brightness by pressing the menu button, the menu screen would not be dark. If everything is dark dark dark and you can only see some display but in very pitch darkness, then your monitor is a goner, backlit for the monitor is dead, and your monitor will need to be replaced. You can fix the backlit tubing, however it is risky, and expensive, and would cost less if you bought a replacement.

What is the display resolution you have set in your display properties? For this monitor it should be set to 1280x1024 pixels, which should give you proper screen geometry.

Dell display is dark


Leave the monitor hooked up to the computer with you booted up into windows.Go into the menu on the monitor itself. There should be a button on the monitor itself that will allow you to go into its own menu. From there try to find the brightness and contrast controls and turn them up. If after you turn them up the display stays dark then your monitor is bad and it will need to be replaced.

Monitor too dark....


Usually every laptop has the option of adjusting the screen brightness as you would want the screen to be pretty dim when running on battery to conserve battery life.
First thing to check would be just that.
