Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Dell monitor My inlaws bought a new computer but they want me to hook up their existing Dell monitor to the new computer. They don't have the diagram of what cables need to be connected. The monitor has a cable with a blue connection on it which looks familiar and then there is a cable with a white connection which I don't recognize and then there is a USB cable.

Re: Dell monitor

See the link below. White cable is better than blue. Don't connect both!

Hooking up monitor

kingpin_392, I f date of manufacture is 2005 or 2006 unit may need to be refurbished. If a "known good" monitor functions ok with your pc and is cabable of displaying the WIN desktop screen, then you wil need to ask brother-inlaw if he had same "check signal cable" symptom. Try to find out how to to do source select on the unit. The monitor may be looking for signal at the DVI port instead of the VGA connector?? 12fixlouie

Just got a new computer DELL Studio...hooked it to my existing monitor (big W3000 / DELL)when i leave the office & it times out....i come back in & i move the mouse but the computer does'nt cpme...

Tom, try connecting a KNOWN GOOD monitor to your PC. If it works fine for 2 hrs and will recover from "time-out" then I would think that the monitor is having a problem with it's backlighting system. Have you had any problem with black screen while doing constant keyboard and mouse movement? Try adjusting time-out settings under "Control Panel" then "Display" then "Power" and select not to turn off monitor. See if that fixes the problem. 12fixlouie

Dell 17" lcd manufactured 2004 CN-0F5035-64180-48G-1X2S wont turn on. power button flashes green, no display will come on. can i get a repleacement from dell? i bought it from a friend.

Dell will not give you a replacment since you were not the one whom purchased it...if you were they would only give you one if it was still under warranty.

Can you try hooking it upto another tower to see if the monitor is at fault and not the PC.

Did you friend show you that it was running before you bought it. Perhaps he sold you a monitor that was about hit the end.

Computer monitor

I have never tried that but I would say it won't work that way. I have 2 display cards (3 outputs each, VGA, DVI, TVout) and 3 monitors. When I check the driver software and multiple screen function, it shows only 2 output (VGA and DVI) each. I cannot set TV output as a second screen. Even display properties on windows, it shows only available monitor output. I don't think you can do that.
Thank you,
