Question about Gateway FPD1975W 19" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

When computer boots, monitor flashes then goes blank in continuous loop. when disconnected from computer, monitor will not power on at all. Could it be the power cord? or possible got hit with a surge and monitor is damaged. If left on long enough, some times it will right itself and work properly until turned off and then it starts all over again.

More likely to be unstable power supply problem due to bad caps, that will be the first place to check.

ON boot up the screen goes blank ater half a second


if the screen goes blank when the windows boots up ...than it is a driver issue and you should boot in safe mode (press F9 or F12 for boot menu ) ..and while in safe mode you have to reinstall the video card driver cause it is corrupted..You should do that just in case it is getting blank in the moment windows should kick in ..
If it is right from the start than it is a computer issue ..and it is either the Ram memory to blame ..and it is booting up in a loop ..and in this case try to remove it ..and boot with on ram memory at the time and see if one of them is faulty ..or if ti is just one ..remove place back ..and also remove the cmos battery to clear settings and boot again and see what s going on ..It may work and in this case problem solved ..or not and you should try new memory ..
Or the worse case..this can be a CPU failing ..and you will have to change it ..

Viewsonic LCD?
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply (they should be replaced in a set), blown fuses; poor solder joints, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums
Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also.

Monitor Problem


Hi,

Then your system configuration and the Operating System are not supporting each other.
OR
If you can arrange one more monitor, try connecting it and see whether even then it goes blank. If not then the previous monitor has some problem.

Blank HP w1907


If the power light does not turn color and stay's green on startup, it is not a power problem. It is most likely the inverter. If the unit is in warranty, send it out ASAP. Contact HP customer care by email and have the issue logged in.
If in warranty, they will send you a box by FedX second day and have repaired.
This is a 19" monitor and will not be worth paying for repairs if not in warranty.

My monitor went black, and the power switch just flashes.


is your CPU working properly? if that the case, your monitor is in need of a service.
reasons for why a monitor goes blank?
Reason 1: Wetness
The number one reason why computer monitors go blank is - wetness. Believe it or not, when your computer monitor is exposed to humid air, sometimes water can condense and accumulate in the monitor. This causes the monitor to malfunction and go blank. I've had this happen to my desktop PC at least three times before. What you need to do is to leave the monitor alone for some time and allow the water to evaporate. That usually solves the problem.

Reason 2: Faulty Graphics Card
The next reason why your computer monitor goes black is due to a faulty graphics card. The best way to detect this kind of problem is to connect up a new monitor to your PC, then check if you have a blank screen. If you continue to have a blank screen, then it's likely your video card is faulty.

Reason 3: Faulty RAM
This one is less obvious and less common, but it can happen. You might sometimes get bad RAM modules which prevent your PC from booting up even to the basic BIOS startup screen. To detect this kind of problem is more troublesome, you might need to remove those RAM modules and insert them into another computer.

Reason 4: Loose Connections
Another reason why your monitor goes blank is due to loose connections. The connection from the monitor to the mains is usually a culprit, as is the connection between the monitor and the video card. Check those connections before you declare your computer monitor as faulty.

Reason 5: A Short Circuit In The Motherboard
And the final reason why your computer monitor goes blank? It's possibly because of a short circuit in the motherboard. This is the most undesirable outcome of course, as you might have to replace your entire motherboard. However, it's possible that this can happen - so keep your fingers crossed and hope it doesn't happen to you.
try this.

have a nice day.
