Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor
I replaced the graphics card on a spare PC, but couldn't install it so changed back to the old one, but before doing so, disabled the Monitor instead of the graphics card hoping that this would disable the old graphics card. Anyway, now I get a screen view until Windows kicks in and then it goes totally blank (though I can hear Windows start via the speakers)
I've tried to start it in safe mode but it just stops with a list of driver names without going into safe mode (just seems to hang)
I tried using the last known good configuration but this didn't help either. Question is, how do I re-enable it? BTW, I have it networked to other PC but can only get into shared docs
Ever fix this? i had this problem.

That's pretty funny (apart from the suffering)! It's doing exactly what you asked and displaying nothing to that monitor. Even if you safe-boot, the VGA thing might try to honor the setting (though it shouldn't if you have WinXP SP3.)
Booting to a command prompt 'only' from the safe boot choices and importing some regedit settings from another machine's video might just do the trick. (As well might adding a 2nd monitor on some machine and seeing what changes in the registry using a monitor program for that.... Some 'display' key probably contains 'disabled 1' instead of 'disabled 0'.... )
If you can get a LiveCD or bootable USB key of any sort (WinXP, Knoppix, Kevin's Rescue CD, etc.) you can probably just enjoy graphics settings by booting to that, and edit the registry or use WINCONFIG a little more freely than Safe Boot offers.
