Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor
I have a 32MB ATI Rage 128 Ultra, My monitor is a Samsung 226BW, the max resolution is 1680x1050 and my computer will only allow 1280x1024. Is there something wrong with my graphics card for not being able to fit and work with my monitor or is this normal? Would upgrading the Rage 128 Ultra to something else help? Or am I doomed to having a kick ass monitor without being able to utilize it?
No, there's nothing wrong with either your graphics card & monitor.. it just that your graphics card does not support a 1680x1050 resolution. if you want to fully enjoy the resolution of your monitor, you should upgrade your graphics card. purchase at least 256mb graphics card and you will see the difference..

My name is Todd and I'm with Dell's online outreach program. Have you tried that system with a different monitor, or is that monitor working correctly on another system? Just trying to confirm it's the video card and not the monitor itself.
Another step you can try is to go into the BIOS / System Setup of that GX 240 to see whether the problem is only happening as it tries to load the drivers. I sort of doubt that it is from your description but you can test it pretty quickly by tapping the <F2> button when the Dell logo would first appear. If the video is normal in the System Setup that would let you know if the basic video functions of the card are working correctly.
But to be honest it sounds like the video card is failing from your description. I assume your system's service contract has expired?
If you would like more detailed help feel free to email us at Customer_Advocate@Dell.com. Please include my first name, Todd, in the subject line of the email and reference this issue so I can pull up information to try to help you.
