Gateway Destination Computer Montior

I bought the Gateway Destination system back in 1998, the computer is too old to use with everything and I now own a laptop. Is there anyway i can use the monitor from the system as a basic tv or for video games? the only ports/jacks on it are the AC power, VGA port, And red/white audio in jacks.

Computer monitor wont turn on when you hold the power button a small orange light turns on. What is wrong?!


CONNECT THE MONITOR DIRECTLY TO THE WALL OUTLET
CHECK WHETHER YOU GET CHECK AUDI SIGNAL OR NOT OR ANY MESSAGE---HTEN CHECK FOR THE CABLE---IF STILL THE ISSUE PERSISTS CHECK IT WITH A DIFFERENT CABLE---
THEN CONNECT IT TO THE COMPUTER MAKE IT SURE THE COMPUTER IS TURNED ON AND THE POWER IS GIVEN TO THE MONITOR AS WELL----CHECK THE COMPUTER WITH ANOTHER MONITOR---IF THE OTHER MONITOR IS WORKING FINE THEN CONNECT YOUR MONITOR TURN IT ON AND THEN FLASH A FLASH LIGHT OR TORCH LIGHT AND THEN SEE IF YOU CAN SEE A DISPLAY INSIDE..
WHILE CHECKING FOR ALL THESE STEPS YOUR ISSUE WILL BE RESOLVED IF NOT TYOU GOTTA CONTACT THE MANUFACTURER FOR A FAULTY MONTIOR---

STEPS IN BRIEF:
DO A MONITOR SELF TEST
CHECK FOR THE LIGHTS
CHECK FOR THE CABLE
CHECK FOR THE PHYSICAL SIGNAL
PUT THE MONTIOR ON A DIFFERENT COMPUTER AND CHECK
CONNECT THE COMPUTER WITH A DIFFERENT MONITOR AND CHECK
FLASH A FLASH LIGHT AS A LAST STEP TO SEE A DISPLAY
IF THE ISSUE IS NOT RESLOVED THE MONITOR IS FAULTY..
HAVE A NICE DAY!!!!

Speakers attachment


If it is powered speakers type (you can tell if it has ac adapter or power cord), then yoy will use that green ministereo audio input plug of the powered speakers and attache it to the PC green audio line out, you do not hook the speakers to the monitor. Please vrify what you have.

Gateway sheild theft mode display and everythings blk+white


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.

Gateway FPD2275W Monitor not working


did you try the fuse. chances are the power supply is at fault but if the spike of voltage was sufficient enough it may have taken out the fuse first.
Warning: If you dont feel comfortable around electronics Do Not Attempt to remove the case from your monitor as HIGH VOLTAGE is present even after the unit has been turned off for a long, long time.
The other option is to find a local repair shop in your neighborhood which will give free estimates. Dont take it somewhere where they'll hit you up with a fee to look at it.

Monitor has no picture


Yes! :)

Your monitor is not the problem. Check all the connections from the back of the monitor, to the computer.

"No Signal Analog" means your monitor is working perfectly, however is not receiving signal from the computer.

Didnt find any loose cables?
Try unplugging everything. Leave it unplugged for at least 5 minutes. You need to give the system time to drain all the excess power.

Again your monitor is fine, blue light > No signal > orange light is totally normal for your montior.
