My Gateway FPD1950 Monitor Will Not Power Up After Being Moved

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?

    check to make sure your computer still boots up, hook up another monitor to it and make sure the computer still turns on.

    Also does your monitor at least turn on when you push the power button.

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.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

My FPD1950 Gateway Monitor quit working. It will not go on..What can it be? What can be done to fix it?


It does the same on another PC?
First thing to look inside the monitor will be the DC filter caps (bulging tops) which is the common failure in LCD TV and Monitors.
If you are going to DIY and already try the monitor with another PC, and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed GATEWAY monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/albums/yy352/budm/
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

It may have been coincident. For a 4 years old monitor, the power supply may have failed.

Unhooked and moved my computer to another part of my room and the monitor now comes on with the power saver display and button is blue, then power saver display goes off and button turns yellos light and...


Sounds as if your monitor is not receiving a signal from your video card. In all likelihood, the video card came unseated during the move. Open the case and re-seat the video card, that should do the trick.

Write back if that does not solve the problem.

How do we turn off the POWER SAVING MODE on the monitor screen?


Try going into your Start Menu then going into your control panel...then clicking on your "power options"....then switching the options to 'always on'..if this does not work..(as it seems you may not be seeing this because the monitor is in power saving mode) try fiddling with the setup option on your monitor and find a possible powersaving mode enabled function and disable it. every monitor is different so I couldn't really help you here...if this doesn't yield results try another monitor to see if it's the monitor having the problems or the computers video card...the video card could very well be the culprit...

It's probably cheaper to get a new monitor than it is to get a logic board. If Gateway can even get you such a thing.

Good luck on that.

Dead monitor


Make sure the monitor is connected to the right video graphics card. This will happen if you are using the wrong one. Because at one time someone added another graphics card. Move the computer and put the monitor cable back in the wrong port on the back of the computer.
