I have repaired similar FPD models. I have one of them on this very desk.
The GatewayFPDmodels develop problems after a couple or more years of use. Therepairsare fairly easy for the savvy technician. The power inverterboard inthe back of the monitor contains some capacitors, they may be470 and220 mfd or 680 mfd depending on when they were made, @ 10 16 or25volts, with a 105 deg. C temp rating. They go bad due to heatissuesand the currents they have to filter. Replacement of thecapacitorsusually restores operation. Use capacitorss of the sameratings as original for replacement.
Be advised, turning the monitor off when you are not using it will extend the life between these repairs.
Hope you find this helpful.

Restart the PC and get into SAFE MODE. Hit and release F8 many times right after turning on PC. If it works, then go into your video setting and either change the settings or remove the video driver. Restart the PC and you'll get 800X600 screen, then reinstall the video drivers. IF it won't go above 800X600, screen internals are bad, LCD toasted. I've seen that happen with LCDs and older monitors.

Sounds like the inverter is broken or have a short circuit. This is a common failure on TFT displays.
Here is a website explaining this kind of failure:
