Question about Gateway FPD1760 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Screen wiggly Since Saturday the screen has become very unstable. My friend suggests it's about to break, but is there anything else that could be causing this to happen? We're in a pretty severe heat wave right now and I 'm wondering if they heat could have anything to do with why the screen is so jumpy.

    Hmm, that stinks. It is a shimmy all the way around and it seems to get worse with the heat oddly enough or the longer it is on. It's probably more likely the longer it's on as you said the heat doesn't bother it. The monitor is only about a year and a half old. I hope it's still under warranty. Thanks for your help!

    I checked the connections on my power strip, also found out how to check the refresh rate and changed it from 60 to 75. Am hoping this will fix my problem. I will try this for a day or two and see what happens. Thank you for your help. If I need further consultation I will write again.

Are you using the digital (DVI) input?

    Ambient temperature, in most cases, will not affect the performance of your monitor. Usually a color distortion or what looks like an interference (fuzziness or fuzzy lines) is caused by a loose connection or bad cable. If you get like a shimmy all around the edges or the whole screen wiggles but otherwise looks normal, especially if it's intermittent, I will bet your monitor needs replacing soon.

Flickering and garbeled screen

Try to lower your screen display resolution: you might have to do it under 'Safe Mode' (eg. reboot your computer in 'Safe' mode normally done using the F8 key during the initial boot sequence) as your screen display appears to be unstable/unreadable.

Starlogic 19" flat panel screen won't show anything.

Have you made sure that all the cable connections are screwed in tight?

You could also remove the cable to make sure that none of the pins have become bent out of place.

Yes you got badcaps!!! examples of what they are and what they can do and this is one of them. U/You can change out these caps and see if it fires back up again.

Even bulging caps are still issues I just fixed a emac with bulging caps as the emac would freeze not when i put in the new caps the ****** is doing great!!!! I would suggest you do the same.

Pink horizontal stripes on my monitor

If youve tried pressing the degaus button on the monitor and the same result then either your graphics driver is corrupt and needs to be updated from the manufacturer web site or the monitor is on it's way out. Try a friends monitor on your system or your monitor on a friends, if it's the same on a friends ststem, it's a belated Xmas present for yourself.
