Nonnie707, It is very possible that your monitor's internal or external (lay on floor) "switch-mode-power-supply" has a problem. Prove that your pc is working by connecting KNOWN GOOD monitor to your pc!!! If you are not electronics technician then you will need to question Gateway as to warranty service or possible swapout for a REFURBISHED unit if your unit is deemed as premature failure. May cost $ for swap. READ my FIXYA profile and that of other FIXYA TECH's (buddymc, budmrtn) for more options as to "what to do"!!! Remember, If very strange and weird things start to happen (occur) with "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamp" backlit LCD display, the first place I would investigate would be the units "switch-mode-power-supply" Good luck with the repair. 12fixlouie

My hp 1730 monitor remains black. I can faintly see the display, close-up, but it is close to black. I just tried it on my other computer and it still does not work


The screen finely went out and it cant display any more. is it old? do you leave it on alot?

The screen probably burnt out. Or you just have the contrast or brightness turned all the way down.

Gateway FPD 1830 18.1 in. Flat Panel Problem


Usually in these cases the power supply would be the issue, but you say the OSD window shows up clearly, So the LCD panel is good and the Power Supply /inverter depending on which your FPD has.
FPD 1830 should have 3 boards(logic, Inverter, Power) otherwise just 2(logic, power)

If it is super dim, the problem is the inverter. Or the Power Supply if the inverter is embedded

Otherwise what your issue is the logic board, if you can swap out that part for a good one, Chances are for sure that you will have a spanking new FPD working.

I've worked with these a lot. Im working on one right now.
I hope this helps
Wish you luck

No Power On at all


What it sounds like is the Power supply on your FPD is bad. If its making a High Pitch Sound, A circuit or piece of your power supply is failing. It would need to be replaced in order to get it working.

Suggestion.
You can repair this easily if you have another FPD 1730 lying around that doesnt work you can replace parts, but its best if they were made around the same time because certain models have 3 boards(video board, inverter, power supply) But most have two boards (power supply, video card)
They are easy to replace and maneuver if you want to give it a try. Open the FPD and see what kind you have. If anything you might be able to find a part online.

Good Luck,
I hope this helps
