Question about Gateway FPD1975W 19" LCD Monitor
Troubleshoot a little further to make sure it is the monitor and not the video graphics card on your computer.
Do you have another computer or laptop that you can attach the monitor to and see if it comes on? If so, attach the monitor and see if it works.
If the monitor does work, then your video graphics card on your computer is out. You can purchase a new one for under 30 dollars (a better one will cost you more). These are easy to install just make sure you are grounded before opening the case and that the computer is unplugged before starting.
The monitor doesn't have a fuse (that I know of) but does have a backlight (like a long lamp). If this went out then you would need to turn off the lights, plug into computer and shine a bright light on it. If you can barely see a picture then the backlight is out. These are difficult to replace but worth taking to a tech.
I am 98% positive it is the video graphics card.
Hope this helps!
