Question about Gateway FPD1975W 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Monitor I have had this problem occur once before to a monitor and I was able to solve it. This time it is a different monitor and my solution is not working. My monitor is now operating sideways (with the Windows start button in the upper left hand corner and all of my icons at the top going from right to left). I tried to use the front panel buttons to flip it back but all it did is make the situation worse. Is there a way in Windows to get it back? Thanks

The Ctrl-Alt-Direction key sequence is supposed to be used for changing your workspace. On my computer at work it changes the screen orientation.
Ctrl-Alt-Up - right side up
Ctrl-Alt-Right - 90 degrees
Ctrl-Alt-Down - 180 degrees
Ctrl-Alt-Left - 270 degrees
(If that doesn’t work, try Ctrl-Shift-R)
This is a feature in Windows XP Tablet PC Edition. Which makes sense. But it looks like ATI Intel copied the keystroke for the same “feature” in their video card drivers. I can’t think of a good reason why I would need an always-on keystroke for this on a desktop PC.
When creating a keystroke-mapped feature that only 1% of your customers will want to use and the other 99%[1] are going to be confused by, put in a menu option to disable it and have it disabled by default.
To fix the issue press Ctrl-Alt-Up. To permanently fix the problem go to:
Start >> Control Panel >> Display >> Settings >> Advanced
Where it is after that it dependent upon your video card.

The computer monitor viewing screen continues to flicker and change color tints at random moments. It makes it difficult to view the monitor screen clearly. I would like to know how to solve this problem...


have you made sure the video cable is plugged into the screen and the back of the computer correctly. You could also try a new video cable, because the problem may be that the wires inside the video cable have frayed. If that doesn't fix the problem you could try using a different monitor and see if you can replicate the same problem with a different monitor, if you can, the computer may have a problem with the graphics card. If you can't replicate the problem with a different monitor, it seems as though your northgate innovations monitor has developed an internal fault, if the monitor is within warranty try and get a free repair or get it replaced (if you have the receipt.

When I turn on the monitor, I get an error message: "Warning PC entering power saving mode", then it turns off.


Unplug your dekstop from the electricity then press and hold the power button on your desktop for couple minutes with out no power cable attached to it then let go of the power button then connect your desktop back to electrical outlet and press power button once that should give you display once it turns back on you can go into your power saving options and turn off power saver mode as its conflicting with your LCD sometimes this can occur if you have Norton antivirus installed
if after doing the power drain and still get same message then you can try using a different monitor if you have one for a test.
this issue is not with your monitor but with the PC has been stuck in sleep mode but the power drain should solve your problem.

Viewsonic E70f monitor goes standby by message OFF MODE IN 5SEC


off mode in 5 sec,problem represents that the data cable is not properly connected or the monitor is unable to recognize the connection once check your key board lights above the num pad when you switch on the PC if the lights appear . Then the power supply is not provided to only the monitor unplug the data cable and plug it again properly,even if doesnt solve your problem just shake the data cable receiver pin located to the back of the monitor.

If the lights on the keyboard does not appear the problem is within the cabinet it may occur due to the dust too,so clean it properly , using a hair drier for blowing the dust is better.

Hope this would solve your problem.

Monitor displaying purplish colour and sometimes blinks


Have you checked the cable that connects from PC to monitor ? If its VGA, it will be a 15 pin cable. please check both ends of the cable if any PIN is broker or bended. or remove it and tight it again. If that does not solve, the monitor will have some hardware issue.

Monitor will not stay on. I can turn the monitor off and then back on and my desktop pops up for 3 or 4 seconds before the screen goes black again. Also, on occasion the monitor will continuesly flsh on...


I'm afraid that most probably your monitor is failing. Try to connect it to a different PC and see if it's still blanking.
I've had few cases of dell monitors dying in similar manner to yours. In all cases it was caused by blown capacitors on the logic board in the monitor. (overheating/poor quality components). Once replaced, the monitors were back to life and are still in service today.
Of course unless you like to tinker with electronics this is probably not worth repairing as the monitors are fairly cheap these days.
Hope this helps,
Raf

Ground Noise Problem Possibly Attributed to Samsung Monitor


Do you have another power adapter to try? Sometimes those go bad, and are pretty cheap to test out (around $35-$50). Otherwise it is the DC-in board on your PowerBook. I replace about 2 of those per month with our clients up here on the PowerBooks (and iBooks). The DC-in board on your 15" is also part of your sound board.

Monitor won't stay asleep


I am not familure with that type of monitor however I found through being a IT tech that some monitors have a setting that allows windows to control sleep and wake commands. You might want to take a look at your monitor controls usually located in front of the monitor. This may solve your problem.
