Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Display problem I have a HP computer and monitor with Windows Vista and a NVIDIA 6150 graphics card. My computer is almost 1 year old and during the last two months the monitor has started going fuzzy on me during any graphics programs. I do not run too many programs at once and the programs are not that graphics intensive. It never did this before. The diagnostics says that the video card is ok. It seems to correct itself when I shut down the program (sometimes it stays fuzzy through several computer restarts). What could be the problem?

    Dust did seem to be the problem. It is working ok so far. Thank you for the help.

    What monitor is attached? It is probably the monitor not the computer. Is it LCD or CRT?

A fuzzy display is not likely to by caused by programs on your computer. Is this an LCD flat panel monitor or a regular CRT monitor?? If it's a CRT, the problem could be with the high-voltage power supply, which would need to be diagnosed by an experienced computerdisplay problem - 1.gif or electronics technician.

Check to see if there is a small focus knob on the back. If so try turning it back and forth three or four times to "clean" it....then adjust for correct focus.

Symptoms like this can also be caused by accumulated dust inside the monitor.

Display resolution decreases unexpectedly. I find that the resolution is set at max but display settings show multiple monitors. I am only using the laptop display. I can temporarily resolve this issue by...

old compaq Notebooks.
running what OS what windows is there, of the 14 made.
my guess XP on up.? the hp data sheet says VISTA.
is it still running VISTA? still have the HP recovery disks>?

all modern screens and GPU chips have many possible resolutions.
this great benefit allows you to run old APPS that only do low (poor)
resolutions, (i can name some if you ask, some old video players)
the only problem using old laptops is the lack of support after 10 long years, and HP ends that. I';d give on finding HP drivers. this old.
and that Vista support ended this year, HP and at MS.
V1000 to V6000 are now retired. see here for proof
THAT being said, i plunder on and try to find the correct drivers
first I attempt to ID that GPU chip, (i have scanner to make that easy but can do that here can I) so i must google to find the data sheets.
step one is what OS, you never said so the job expands or fails.
Nvidia. GeForce Go 6150 , VISTA
the makers (nvidia )web page is tricky,
ill teach you how to use it , and it is there. link below.
drivers, top box click Gforce
box 2 pick Gforce 6 series
box 3 pick your unstated OS/
box 4 you lang.
box 6 all.
click search and then pick newest WHQL driver.
DL it. run it , use it.

my wild coin toss , landed me here Vista 32b

I would say you have to go about this one on your own. HP has old drivers for this card. HOwever, you can choose to go "Generic" if you must have an update. The SR2023wm has a NVIDIA GeForce 6150 LE Graphics Drivers. Meaning, go to and look for a driver update there. If this was helpful, please consider leaving 4 thumbs up!

Setting up dual monitors with NVIDIA 7300 GS Graphics Adapter

your computer don't recognize your nvidia graphic card in PCI Express slot.
you are runing now with computer's integrated graphic card?
if so then you won't have dualview option. in this case it looks for me like you've installed in the wrong way your graphic card.

your NV GeForce 7300 GS has 2 video output?
if yes then you should have the option for 2 monitors on nVIDIA control panel (i have check my nVIDIA GeForce 7600gt and in my case this option is present but is enabled only if i connect the second monitor, so try do so)

you have installed the latest nVIDIA drivers from the official website?

check if your video card is corect installed start/run type in " devmgmt.msc ". it will open device manager and under the display adapter tab you should see what video card you use now.

Hi Alvie
I Just checked the specs on both the card and the monitor. It should work no problem. If for some reason you notice some lag or flicker in the monitor, go to this page and download the updated ForceWare graphics drivers.
