Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor
This is actually from dell support website.. hope it will correct your problem...
1 Ensure the correct resolution is set for the monitor. Flat panel monitors display the sharpest, clearest images when set to their optimal resolution. Sometimes games and other programs will change the resolution then fail to set it back once they are closed. This will then make the desktop look big, distorted, and grainy. Perform the following steps to adjust the resolution:
2 Ensure the screen is clean. Finger prints and smudges will make the screen look blurry. Clean the screen with a soft lint free cloth. If needed, dampen the cloth with warm water or use a LCD cleaning kit that can be purchased from most electronics stores.
3 Use the On Screen Display (OSD) on the monitor to select the Auto Adjust feature. Selecting this will synch the video signal and can sharpen the video image.
4 Reseat the video signal cable to ensure a secure connection.
5 Use the On Screen Display (OSD) on the monitor to select the Factory Reset feature.
6 Test the monitor on another computer or test another monitor on this computer. If available, testing different hardware will isolate if the problem stays with the computer or monitor

Could be one of two related situations both have to do with built up magnetic flux:
!. If you have used the monitor for a significant amount of time and have never degaussed it that might be it.
To fix: Go to where your monitor's controls are (eg screen size/position, Brightness, Contrast, etc.). Providing that we are referring to an older style monitor (like a TV) and not a flat screen, you should find a degaussing button located there. This button is marked with a depiction of a horseshoe magnet. Press it.
If you have on screen settings control, hit the menu button and select the icon that looks like a horseshoe magnet.
You'll hear a buzz and the screen will go kooky for a moment.
You're then degaussed. Your problem should go away.
2. You may have moved the monitor close to a source of electromagnetic interference (or vice-versa) this will also cause that sort of thing you describe (remember that there are electrical lines in the walls (another source of EMI)
In that case move the monitor away from the EMI source or move the EMI source away from the monitor.
Remember that it could be both 1 and 2. So if the problem lessens but does not go away fully try both steps.
