I'm guessing the different monitors are different sizes? The only thing a driver for a monitor will do will tell the computer the max resolution that the monitor will be able to go up to. However most 90% of monitors can use the built in windows driver without issues. Your best bet is going to be to change the resolution on the monitor. To do this you can either hook up the old monitor, lower the resolution, and then plug in the other monitor. Or you can boot the computer into VGA low resolution mode by pressing F8 as the computer starts up and selecting that option. From there you can lower the resolution, and then put it at something more desirable with the new monitor.
The other possibility being your Gateway monitor is actually malfunctioning and you just happened to hook up a bad monitor.
The back lamps that provide the illumination of the colors, is shutting down there are feedback circuits when there is a problem with the lamps it will shut down the lamps. Replacing the lamps should alleviate this problem. For more information on this email me at Sprint6@zoominternet.net
Dell monitors automatically go into power-save mode after a preset
amount of time when the computer is inactive. The Dell monitor will go
completely black, instead of showing a screensaver. This doesn't mean
that your Dell computer
has shut down. Instead, this allows your monitor to essentially turn
off until it's needed again. You can change how long it is before the
Dell monitor goes into power-save mode by changing your display
any key on your keyboard or move your mouse. Either will turn off
power-save mode. Alternately, you can press the power button on your
Dell computer tower or laptop.
any key a second time if the monitor goes from power-save to stand-by
mode. Stand-by mode allows the screensaver to appear.

requires a login. Press "Enter" to begin using your Dell computer.
the display settings on your Dell monitor to prevent your monitor from
going into power-save mode prematurely. Right-click anywhere on your
desktop and choose "Properties." Click the "Screensaver" tab and press
"Power." Beside "Turn off Monitor," choose a time amount from the
drop-down list and press "Apply."
checkl in your menu or settings if you have inout it to VGA signal...have you tried other mintor in your current CPU if it works? you can scan the input of the signal from your menu and it should be VGA input.
This sounds like a power save issue or a screen saver problem and they are both on the same panel I will lead you to
Right click on an EMPTY part of the desktop then click properties
Click the screensaver tab then the POWER settings.
Make sure all the boxes say NEVER then APPLY.
Its up to you if you want it to ask for a password when it comes off the screensaver (my pref is for no) then click apply then ok.
When you are back at the screensaver tab change both the screensaver to one of the other windows defaults and also check how long before it goes to screensaver and maybe up that to at least 15 minutes unless you have a plasma screen in which case no more than 5 minutes.
you may need to click apply again then OK
now sit back and wait. and whilst you do that check the manual and controls for the monitor in case it too has a built in saver and if so make any changes you need there.

The problem was repaired by, Calling gateway. You pull up the challange code #'s on the monitor. You tell gateway agent the code numbers, they tell you a unlock code. You enter that on your monitor. and thats that! You pull up the challange code by unpluging your monitor then hold the menu button on monitor. plug back in holding the menu button! larrygl.
