Open monitor and look at the PC Board to locate some kind of DRY SOLDER or burn point , specially where a transformer is located , check re solder any solder point that looks suspicious , and try again , hope this helps

Montior goes black i turn off the monitor and turn it back on i can do about 2 things and screen goes black again repeat this as many times as i want. Gateway FHX2300 monitor


My monitor has been switching connections on me randomly. Hit the menu button. The one to the left of the power butter when facing the screen. Hit the left arrow twice then hit the menu button again. This will open up the screen where you can choose one of three inputs. I'm going to assume that it is on the incorrect input so use the arrow keys highlight what input you are using and the hit menu button again and your screen should return to normal. Mine only does this randomly when it goes into screen saver, hibernate or sleep. I don't know how to permanently get it to stop doing it though.

I have a gateway FPD2485W tft lcd monitor and i start my monitor and after it shows gateway it then goes black. How can this be fixed


bonannorl, Maybe it can be fixed. You did not give any history of unit. Only "now" stuff. Is unit covered by Gateway warranty? How old is unit? Date of manufacture? Did unit work fine connected to your pc and this black or black n blank screen thing suddenly happen? Is screen also BLANK? Have you swapped-in old monitor to prove PC is OK? Your CCFL back-lit lcd monitor no different than any other brand in it's basic design and operation. Get into my fixya profile and read some of my testimonials and solutions to black or black n blank screen problems to help in your decision to DIY fix or contract out needed repair work. Most likely 2485w has problem with it's internal "switch-mode-power-supply"/"ccfl inverter supply"!! Let me know more info about unit.

My screen goes black after a few seconds


Sounds like a bad solder joint on the printed circuit board. Once it heats up then it no longer makes good contact and the monitor goes black until it cools down and makes contact again. You could resolder it if you knew where it was but monitors are dangerous to go playing around with as they can hold very high charges of electricity in their capacitors that are very dangerous. It's a throw away world. Go buy a new one.

Black screen after a couple of seconds


The monitor needs to be replaced. I had an LG LCD that did this luckily it was still under warranty. Contact the maker and have your receipt handy. Otherwise buy a new monitor. Monitors tend to be replacement only

Monitor goes black suddenly


nvdia 6600 requires a minimum of 450 Watts of power to ensure that everything works properly. So if you want to continue using your nvdia card, an upgrade will be necessary.

If you want to test to see if it is the nvidia card, you need to remove the card physically from the system, then boot with the onboard video. This action will eliminate any conflicts between the two video cards. Before doing this you may need to go into device manager and make sure the onboard video card is not disabled.
