Question about Gateway FPD1960 19" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
I have a Gateway FPD1960 that quit working after 18 months. The blue light,(Power) stays on but no pic. Press the input button and displays: input analog. Then i get a beautiful screen for about 1 sec. I have a GeForce 6100 vid card and am running Win Xp Pro SP2. Tried in safe mode with same results. Hooked the monitor to a Dell laptop with a Ati mobility Radeon x1300 running Win Xp Media Ctr. Works fine. Take back to the desktop with same results as mentioned above. Booted to safe mode on desktop, still no picture. Can press input as above and still get nice screen for 1 sec. Any thoughts greatly appreciated.
Good job elbtax, but did you use low esr capacitors? if not your monitor will not continue to work for long.
The solder joints that you repaired actually do not dry out but crack after many heat/cool cyles. this is a common problem in electronics & expecially cheaply engineered/made products.

I got the same problem with this monitor . Except that when I put the moniter on another computer it does the same thing . I just hooked up my old 15 inch tube type moniter to the gateway computer , and it works fine . I figure it has to be the moniter. Any way to find out if there is a recall on these moniters or some sort of addtional warranty from Gateway . Mine is just over 2 years old

Click start > right click on "My Computer" > Properties > Hardware tab > Device Manager button > Display adapters > Right click on your device and select uninstall and re boot your computer. Windows should pick up your adapter and re configure it automatically. This method should Fixya!
Good luck, and let us know how it goes.
