Question about KDS Radius Computers & Internet
Heres the deal. I have a windows 7 laptop with a broken screen so I used a monitor so I can still work with my laptop because we poor people are cheap :P I used the monitor for 3 months and no problem. Monitor works like a charm and then one day it all of a sudden gets weird colors which I think are "not true colors." I try not to worry about it because I can try to fix it to make it workable. Next day I turn it on I log in and 3 secs its the same as yesterday and then a light blue screen. NOT THE BLUE SCREEN WITH BAD STUFF. Just a light blue screen after a few seconds of seeing my desktop. I don't know if its the monitor, cable, or laptop itself. Please help :(
Contact the vendor and get it repaired .... or try changing the vga cable

Alicia, Your monitor digital board is OK. The problem is with the power supply/ Inverter board(s) in back of the LCD/LPD Panel that you look at. You will need to question Gateway to see if they have a swapout program where you send them $30-$60 and your old monitor, and they will send you a refurbished (new cold cathode fluorescent tubes w/inverter board installed ) complete monitor. I'll tell you one thing though. Alicia, Don't feel bad abt this monitor of your's failing. You have joined the club with over 2000 others whose CCF tubes and INVERTER boards have with time now fail to light-up their LCD panels. Yes, there are some companys that do repair of these monitors. Try surfing under CCF tubes or FPD repair, or LCD repair. Yes Alicia, you are dealing with a technology similar to the new type of screw-in light bulbs, only the tubes are thinner and laid flat horizontally across the rear of your LCD panel with a reflecting mirror in back of them. Good luck girl in getting it repaired. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @aol .com North of Chicago 40 miles

Try taking on the back of the monitor and pulling the power plug all the way out of it for about five minutes and then plug it back in and restart the computer see if it solved it thanks

Check the capacitors on your monitors circuit board. If they have opened up at the top, they are fried. Buy new ones, make sure nothing has leaked from the old ones, and replace them.

Yes, More than likely the problem with the unit is blown capacitors on the power supply board, the flashing power light is a good indicator of this type of failure. Here is a link to a repair guide with pictures and videos showing how to open the unit and what to look for and replace to get it back going again.
I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.
