Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor

2 Answers

Changed graphics card-then disabled the monitor by accident, now black screen.Not even safe mode works now!

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

Help please!

Thanks, Stephen

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.

Screen not working


First the graphics card needs to be checked, hook a spare monitor to the video output on the back, if normal! LCD display defective and must be replaced, however if the same issue is on the spare monitor the motherboard will probably be needing replacement because most graphics cards are built in.

If you are able to boot into Windows press the F8 key before the Windows loading animation shows up to boot into safe mode. You can then change your resolution or uninstall the drivers (if needed). You can then restart from safe mode. If you cannot get into windows turn your PC and monitor off and unplug both from their power sources for 5 minutes. You would also want to disconnect the VGA or DVI cable going from your monitor to your graphics card. After 5 minutes with everything unplugged you can plug in your DVI or VGA cable back into your graphics card and then plug power back into your PC and monitor.

Have you checked the bios to see if onboard graphics have been disabled.
You may also have your resolution/refresh rate set to high for the new monitor.
Boot into safe mode (F8 on boot)
This will boot with minimal drivers, your monitor should now come on, if it does then go to you display settings and lower the resolution and refresh rates.
If it does not come on in safe mode, try hook up the old monitor, or another monitor to reduce the resolution

Black/blank lcd screen after 2 seconds


try this - boot into "safe mode" - (this loads just minimal drivers). Reboot and press F8 while it's booting - it will ask if you want to boot into safe mode - say yes - if the screen works with the low resolution inherent drivers, it's probably a driver issue, or if you have a video card, it may not be able to work at the higher resolutions (which could be a card issue)

This should help you narrow down if the screen actually works, or if it's a graphics card and/or driver issue.

If it works - try reloading the driver for your graphics card (if you don't have a graphics card - try reloading both the chipset driver and the video driver from the manufacturer)

let me know if this works...

(I had a Toshiba Tecra laptop that did the exact thing - you could see the Windows boot menu, and once it completed boot up, the screen would go black - if you started it in safe mode (crummy resolution) it worked but of course the graphics are unacceptable at that resolution)

Turns out this is common with those, it was the graphic card built into the motherboard that's shot....

Monitor will not support refresh rate, how do i change it if I can not get a screen image?


Try loading windows in Safe mode. And remove or disable the Radeon card, Safe mode will load windows generic video drivers, then go to control panel, and click on device manager and then click on display adapter, and delete the driver, you must delete it or the Radeon card will reload its driver the next time u reboot and you problem will not go away.

Displays 'Input Not Supported' at start up om black screen


Seems that you have set the resolution on your graphics card to a setting higher than the maximum resolution supported by your monitor.
Try to boot into Safe Mode & lower the resolution of your graphics card. If not possible, go to Device Manager & remove the graphics card from it, then reboot your computer. This will reset the resolution.
You can then re-install your graphics card drivers & get it to work properly.

Unexpectedly lost graphics, but theres a story to the issue.


You mentioned that you disabled the on-board graphics card using the device mamager.
You should disable the on-board video card in the BIOS.
Go to the BIOS config and disable the Video.

Adaptor settings


Take out the video adaptor that you have installed and see if you can boot up with only the on-board video, first in standard mode and then if it won't work, try the safe mode..

Did you change any other settings?

Also, when you had the video card installed, did you disable the onboard video?
