Question about Gateway FPD1975 19" LCD Monitor
I have a thin black horizontal line across my monitor. Is there something I can do to fix it?
Although I don't have much hope for this, it is what I would try first:
Plug the monitor into a different system to make sure the problem is not from your video card or circuit.
This will probably show the same black line since the signal received by the monitor can't really cause this kind of problem.
I'm afraid that either the LCD panel itself has a failed driver (hardware, not software) or processing prior to this is faulty.
That line is being caused by all pixels being turned on hard, producing the maximum possible black.
Most all of the components inside are placed and soldered by robots and boards are often not economically repairable.
This kind of problem is becoming more common as China takes the plowshares away from farmers and makes assembly technicians of them.
