Question about Gateway FPD1975W 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Fpd1975w display flashes on and off

Just added a ATI Radeon XT video card to my Mac Pro. Display (Gateway fpd1975w) worked fine before with original Nvidia card but blink on and off with this card, light on the monitor stays blue and no siganl loss is detected by the monitor. Got it down to the monitor because changing resolution, hooking up with a VGA converter or unplugging DVI connection and then reconnecting the cable solves the problem. Also made sure that drivers and rom version of video card were currrent. Apple could not help me any further because I installed the card myself. Does anyone have any idea what the F is going on?

    Thanks. But the resolution and frequency are the native 1400x900 w/ 32bit, 60hz frequency of the monitor. Still blinks now if I take the resolution and bring it down a second and bring it back to the native resolution the monitor stops blinking. I'll try the resolution thing later tonight. Oh, in boot camp on my Windows XP side the monitor never blinks. By The Way, Thank you bassplayer97 for serving our country.

What resolution are you setting your screen to? if you are setting it too high or to a resolution/frequency that your monitor doesn't support, it will do this. Try setting it to 800 x 600 w/ 32 bit color and a frequency of 60Hz. If you do this and the monitor still blinks, you may just have a bad DVI cable.

If your second display is a CRT you have a blown gun in the tube. Or the chassis has become magnetised. Either DeGauss the display (CRT only) or swap the displays around to check if the display or the card is at fault.
