Question about Gateway FPD 1830 18.1" Flat Panel LCD Monitor
This model has known problem with bad caps on the inverter board, replace all four with one cap (470uF/25V use PANASONIC FM or FC series from DIGIKEY). I fixed about 20 of this model.

Testimonial: "Thanks where do you think I can get the cap and what kind do you reccmnd and is there a tutorial on how to do this? Sorry I'm a begginer at this stuff"
Baraaosman93, I don't think software is problem. You need to sub-in a known good monitor to prove problem not in your PC!!!!!! Do you know the flashlight test to determine state of monitor switch-mode-power-supply? Because your monitor isn't any different in it's basic design and operation from that of any other brand, I will send you to do some reading at a old Hewlett-Packard (HP) monitor blog. I think it will be very helpful to you. http://www.lesliewong.us/blog/2005/05/02/hp-pavilion-f1703-flat-panel-display-blackout-solution/ Yes you will need to investigate the SMPS board for bad capacitors and or thermally intermittant cold solder joints on the printed circuit board. If not into doing a DIY repair and you don't want to do any reading in my or other fixya tech's profiles, then just trade unit for new one. In any case, do additional comment after doing some research on lcd black and blank n black screen symptoms. Let others who read this know what you did to fix your problem. 12fixlouie
