Monitor stays dark

Hi Don, If the monitor is showing that message it means that it is not getting a video signal from the computer.. Check that all of your connectors are fully plugged in and properly fastened. Restart the computer and see what happens. If you still get the message they replace the video cable and try again. If the result is still the samew then you either have a problem at the monitor or, more likely as your other monitor didn't work, a problem with the video card in the computer.

Gateway laptop p-6822; possible inverter problems - dark screen on bootup?

Does it matter if the computer is plugged in or on battery? If its the same either way, yes most likely its either the inverter or "backlight". A good way to test is , plug it in the and external monitor and see how the picture is.

I have a Gateway FPD 1530 Monitor. Both of the lamps in the screen will light up for about a second, then go off. I used a flashlight to check the screen in a dark room. You can still see the desktop in...

Be careful with that meter, you may destroy the input circuits of the meter. The starting voltage to fire up the lamp is about 1500~2000vac!, maintain on state is about 500~800v.

Gateway sheild theft mode display and everythings blk+white

The problem was repaired by, Calling gateway. You pull up the challange code #'s on the monitor. You tell gateway agent the code numbers, they tell you a unlock code. You enter that on your monitor. and thats that! You pull up the challange code by unpluging your monitor then hold the menu button on monitor. plug back in holding the menu button! larrygl.

No signal on monitor

You probably have 2 monitor connections. you have a standard one, and one that is through a graphics card at the bottom of your tower. Check for that second connection and switch the plug.. that should solve it.

Gateway 3522GZ display

Some searching on forums convinced me the inverter had failed. Picked one up for $65, removed the frame around the screen, removed the mounting screw for the inverter, and unplugged both ends of the old and plugged in the new. Put it back togeher and fired it up, bright again. Key here was that a remote monitor still worked which meant video card was OK. The lamp could have been bad, but apparently the life of lamps is pretty decent.
