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?

Re: display problem

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 computer1.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.

How do I darken my Phillips computer monitor as there are no buttons on the monitor except the on/off button

If your computer has an nVidia graphics card you may be able to do it from the nVidia control panel. Look in the Windows control panel for an nVidia Control panel entry. From there you may have access to settings that allow you to adjust the display.

I tried to use my acer as a second monitor and it is connected to my GTX 550 Ti graphics card just like my Benq monitor. Whenever I turn on my computer the acer monitor shows the acer logo and then s

Incorporating a second monitor is a great Idea, I've used three to four on my workstations for many years. Setting up multiple monitors involves more than just hardware, the card manufacturer's software and operating system is involved. Since you didn't note the OS, I'll assume Win7. First, simply right click the desktop, and select "Screen Resolution" to see a page headed "Change the appearance of your displays," below which show be a graphic that shows both monitors with a number "1" and "2" on each. Arrange them by dragging and dropping them to reflect your physical arrangement. Then, select the fourth drop-down titled "Multiple" Displays" and select "Extend desktop onto this display," then click the "Apply" button followed by the "OK." button. If your hardware and drivers are set up properly, you should have everything working at this point. Your Nvidia software should have installed a control panel item that you can use to make tweaks to your system. You can also contact Nvidia technical support for more detailed, OS-specific assistance.

I can't connect an external HF199H monitor, on a 2007 MacBook 3,1 running Windows 7. Help??

ok so for clarification, you are using a MacBook w/ a dual boot to windows 7 Ultimate? and after the update from Vista it now is not detecting your external display.

If I am correct, your graphics card is most likely an NVidia chip set. Do some research and find your specific graphics card, go to the NVidia website and download the most up to date drivers for it and try again. If you have done this already, try emailing them and find out if your graphics card is compatible w/ windows 7 or if the driver was specifically designed for vista. That's where I would start.

I am using VA1903wm LCD monitor from Viewsonic. It worked well at its non standard resolution of 1440*900 when used with Windows Vista. i had to upgrade to Windows 7 Enterprise edition and this resolution...

Update your graphics card drivers to the newest ones available. That is typically caused by having the default windows driver for your graphics card. If it is a Nvidia gpu get the drivers from them, itf its an ATI/AMD get them from AMD Game. If it is neither of those Intel does some graphic cards, if its not an Intel one go to the computer manufacturers website and find your model to get drivers for it.

Does this require software?

You do not require any Princeton software. I have the same display. What I needed was the correct driver for my system, and the correct software installed to support my video card (nVidia 8800GT).

My display can handle up to 1280x1024 resolution at 32 bit color, and does it very well. I run it at 1024x768, 32 bit color, and 96 dpi. Not bad for a 12 year old display! I had a power supply (AC adapter) go out a while back.

I am now using a power supply from an old HP printer that I got rid of. The plugs are the same, and the "Power Output" rating are almost identical (only very slightly different). My display is still kicking. I'm a computer graphic artist and a photographer. The work I've turned out the past few years with this display is impressive.

Hope that helps.

I can only get 480 x 640 resolution and 4 bit colors and all the graphics are fuzzy

It appears the graphics card driver has not been installed. Check the device Manager and if you get a yellow ? against the Display Adapter then you need to install the graphic driver.
If your computer is a Compaq or HP then you need to download the drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model computer and the XP or Vista Windows version of the drivers you require and install them. Use this link to download the drivers :-

If your computer is not a Compaq or HP desktop computer and you know the make and model of the graphics card in your computer then go to the graphics manufacturer's WEB site to download the graphics driver.

"No signal detected" when LCD connected with DVI-D Cable

Thank you for providing your configuration details.
You have failed to specify wheather or not your LCD Display is under Warrenty.

Perhaps these simple trouble shooting procedures will get the job done.

1. use the DVI to VGA adaptor that came with your card

Plug in a regular CRT monitor to the Primary Display Output Port using the DVI to VGA adaptor
( either port can be designated as the primary by you )
I like to use the Port nearest to the motherboard as the Primary

2. plug in the your LCD monitor on Secondary Display port using your DVI cable

At this point you should be able to see your desktop on the Primary CRT Display

3. Go to the display properties and use the Nvidia Dual Display Setup Wizard

set both desktops to CLONED at a resolution of 1024x768 and set the refresh to 60Hz
which is default for most LCD displays , some have higher refresh rates , consult your user manuel

If the display resolution and refresh are set incorrectly for your CRT or LCD you will see
Signal Out of Range ( if the display has the ability to display that error message )

At this stage both displays should be showing a Windows Desktop

If you now see your desktop on both displays , you can now put the LCD on the Primary Port

No Signal Detected ( this means the display device is not receiving a signal )

If your LCD display is still displaying the error message
"No Signal Detected" after performing the trouble shooting proceedures
You may need to read the user manuel about how to enable DVI signal input.

If you are certan you have done everything correctly but still see only "No Signal Detected"

Your LCD Display may need replacement

Blurred pictures on monitor

The problem is not the monitor, it is the display adapter (Video card) of your system needs a valid Vista driver. (NVidia, ATI and Intel are the 3 largest Graphic card manufacturers) Monitor drivers are almost never needed except on some advanced large LCDs.

You said up upgraded to Vista, did you use a Vista upgrade DVD or just perform a clean installation of Vista? Have you installed Vista Chipset drivers? The chipset and Graphics drivres may not be native to Vista, you may need to install them.

Will Princeton monitor VL1918 support NVIDIA GeForce 6150 SE

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.
