Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor

4 Answers

Strange delay. Ever since I bought my Gateway pc, the monitor has a strange delay every time I turn it on. When I hit the power button the Gateway symbol pops up then fades away, but not all the way. You can still barely see the symbol then it stays there for sometimes a full minute. When it finally turns on, the VGA notice pops up and THAT stays up for another minute. Now, I brought my machine over to my girlfriends about two weeks ago and it seemed to be fixed. Two weeks pass and the delay started up again. What do I do?

    I have the same problem as well.... unplugging definitely helps. But we shouldn't have to unplug the monitor every 2 weeks. Have you found any updates on this problem? I imagine there are several of us out there...

I'm having the exact same strange delay problem as you.
I fixed my delay when I too took my machine to your girlfriends. LOL!

No seriously.... you solved your delay problem yourself when you UNPLUGGED the power cord from the back of the monitor.

My guess is that when you unplug the power cord, the monitor resets itself. It's only a temporary fix, but, IT WORKS.

1. Turn the monitor OFF
2. Unplug the power cord from the back of the monitor
3. Wait 10-15 seconds or so
4. Plug the power cord back in
5. Turn your monitor ON........DELAY ELIMINATED.

The delay returns eventually, but, I just unplug-n-replug and I'm good to go again.

This is a common problem with many LCD monitors. The

kruwv, Use Gateway warranty first!!! Else gateway swapout+ cash for a factory refurbed unit if program exists. Did you un-plug unit from wall outlet and then reconnect power? Problem same?

Similar problem here...Lenovo T61p won't power up.


Sounds like it needs the magic reset procedure. Press the power button 11 times and on the 11th time hold it for 30 seconds. Put the battery and power adapter in and retry it.

My gateway GT4010


check the power plug first and see if it is properly plug in and turning on the power button, if does not work, get a new power plug and try as i've said again and if does not work the power system has problem and should be changed.
