Question about Gateway GeForce4 Ti 4600G, (128 MB) Graphic Card

1 Answer

Support for wide screen monitor

My original Gateway FPD1830 monitor is dead and I'd like to replace it with a 19" or 20" LCD widescreen monitor. Native resolution for these is 1440 x 900 or 1680 x 1050.
With updated drivers can the original Gateway GeForce4 Ti 4600G serve the newer high-resolution monitors? If not, what is the least expensive replacement graphics card that would work?
My old Gateway 500 xl has 3 PCI and one AGP slots. Don't remember whether the Gateway graphics card is PCI or AGP-- in any event, the newer PCI-ex cards won't work.

First. Is the motherboard posting? If no, the board is dead. If it is posting, is the video card working with other monitors? If yes, that LCD is broken, If it is not working with other monitors, it is defective. Also check the other I/O off the video card (VGA, HDMI, DVI).

With windows7 screen is small@1024/768 is ok if you use 1440/768 how can i use 1024/768 and get full screen 20 ' wide screen


If you have a Wide screen monitor it can only (look good) in a Wide screen resolution such as 1440x768.

1024X768 is the lower resolution, and it is for normal screen (square) monitors, not for wide screen monitors.

You cannot get a full screen at 1024X768 resolution with a Wide Screen Monitor.

Hope that Helps.

Turned my gateway mx3414 laptop off, when I turned it back on the screen was black, turned off and restarted several times always just a black screen.

You may have a faulty inverter or defective CCFL lamp. A faulty CCFL lamp may have the following symptom: Screen flashes on and off or displays reddish pink hue. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering and/or with dim display or appear black. Picture flickers on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replace the CCFL lamp.
To determine if the video card or the LCD is faulty, connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight or a faulty inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp. Usually the CCFL lamp fails before the inverter.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

My graphics card- 3dfx voodoo3(with TV OUT) but it can not support my new LCD wide screen monitor(1440*900)?

did you reset the hz before switching to a LCD? CRT monitors could support much higher hz ratings than LCD's

most LCD monitors only support 60hz
