Monitors use a standard computer power cord, you can go into any place that sells that type of product and just ask for it.

Gateway blank screen


Here's some tricks I would try. Something here, might help...
1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or orange or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your monitor on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.
Good luck.

All cords are correctly put on, when I turn the desktop on, my monitor doesnt power on, its stay off.


I apologize for thinking so simply, however, your monitor has a separate power button and power cord. Therefore, even if you computer is off, there should be power to the monitor unless the monitor is not plugged in or the power button is turned off.

Check the power button and power cord for the monitor.

Dell Monitor shuts down with "entering power save mode" command


There are times when you need to install software for a monitor to work with a PC. If you have the software disk that came with the monitor, you can try to install. You can also try changing the power cord to the monitor. Generally, power cords for PC's and monitors are the same. If you use your PC power cord and the monitor comes on saying that there is no connection with a computer, and it was not doing this before, you can get a new power cord for the monitor. If you can, try the monitor with another PC or laptop to rule out a bad monitor.
I hope these suggestions have given you a place to start and that they were helpful.

My gateway model 900G monitor will not display an image. The on/off button does not light up and the power cord is good. What can I do?


If the on/off light is not lit, then the monitor is not receiving power for some reason.

This could be:

Power is not available, meaning the outlet maight be dead.

The power supply [power converter too, if it has a square/rectangular box as part of the powercord] for the monitor is bad, meaning it is getting power from the outlet, but nothing makes it to the monitor.

The power converter or cirucuit board in the monitor is bad nad needs to be replaced, because power is getting to the monitor, but the monitor is either not able to convert it into useable current, or the circuit board within the monitor is damaged.

You can find out which is going on by doing the following:

Grab a $10 voltmeter at your hardware store and check the power coming from your outlet, then plug the power cord/converter into the outlet and check the other end for same. Note: If your power cord has a converter on it, check to make sure the voltage/amps are the same as what is printed on the label of power converter. If those are all good, then your monitor needs repair. get a quote first before allowing any work to be done, as it could cost more to fix this than a new monitor would cost.
