Question about Gateway FPD1950
Moved my computer to another room and when starting up, the monitor has no power. I tried changing cords AND outlets and still no power. Is this the end of the line?
Here's a link to the HP support site for your monitor, where there are instructions for troubleshooting this problem. But check first to be sure you haven't inadvertently switched the power switch on the monitor off. Then try another power cable if you have one, try plugging directly into the wall instead of a power strip, etc. Jiggle the cable connection on the back of the monitor.
Here's another article that may help you to determine if the monitor has in fact gone bad.
I hope not, as I have the same monitor and have enjoyed it for its clarity and resolution...But I once had a power supply go out when I moved to a new room. Doesn't make a lot of sense, but it happens, I suppose.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
