There should be a button on the display to bring up the options or menu which you need to look for brightness/contrast if these are both at setting 100 your backlighting CCFL tubes (cold cathode flourescent) like flourescent bulbs in the ceiling are burning out slowly they can be replaced but it is not a common repair for a local computer store you may neeed to find a specialist.

What does the HDMI jack surrounded in orange on the gateway dx4720-01h do?


This is the HDMI interface on the Motherboard. You should be able to easily connect an HDMI cable between this jack on the PC and a display that offers and HDMI input to see and hear the content on the TV.

You *may* need to either remove the video expansion card (not likely) or select the On Board HDMI video and audio in the PC's setup or BIOS pages. Failing to switch the audio from analog to the digital HDMI output will have the audio play through your current speakers instead of the TV.

Linked below are spec on your machine, in it it says:

Samsung screen is not calibrated properly. There is a line on the right side of the screen that I can't get rid of.


Unfortunately the line didn't show up in the video.

1) New LCD screen?
Should have an Installation CD Disk that comes with it. Use it if so.
Has the Drivers on it.

Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device.

Don't know which version of the Windows O/S you have.
The device in this case is the LCD monitor.

2) What is the NATIVE screen resolution for the LCD monitor.
Look up the specs on the monitor using it's Model Number on back.

For example I installed an HP 2009M 20-inch widescreen monitor, along with the 26-inch RCA ENV HDTV I use for a monitor.

I had to use the drivers from the disk, but could still not set the native resolution in Display Properties.
There is an alternate resolution to the native one that can be used.
The drivers from the disk made it so.

The 20 inch widescreen is 1600 x 900 (Pixels)
The 26 inch HDTV is set at 1360 x 768 (Pixels)

Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
In the Display Properties window click on the Settings tab.

What is the Screen resolution setting? What is it supposed to be?
The Slider on the line is clicked on with the left mouse button, left mouse button held down; then the Slider is slid to the left to decrease screen resolution, or to the right to increase with the mouse.

Color quality should be set to High (32-bit)

1) Installing software (Drivers) from the Installation disk, (Or from the monitor manufacturers support website);
And,
2) Setting the screen resolution;

doesn't help, replace the monitor cable with a known to be good one.

Still no? Your LCD monitor is going out.

Trying to put on closed caption on gateway tv 42 inch-a large black screen appears


don't know if CC can be used when watching a DVD. seems to me that it would cause a conflict on the display where the dvd is sending the image which is really not part of the TVs input control options.
CC is usually related to the digital signal from signal broadcasts and not video images coming from an external source. if it was controlled i would think it would be from the dvd remote controller. not the tv.

How to connect 3 LCD monitors to a computer


Some cards can send 2 outputs that is split by the cable, which is connected to 2 monitors. Generally speaking though, most just split the image up

If you're not sure if your output supports multiple monitors off one output, it's almost certain it doesn't.
There is USB 2.0 to DVI, HDMI and VGA Multi-Display Adapter
resolutions of up to 1600 x 1200 Allows for effortless multitasking

Hi There, I've been experiencing the same setback as Kenneth. My lenovo 3000 flashed off and even if I boot it, the screen is still black.How ca I fix it?./ Ty


You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashes on and off or displays reddish pink hue. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickers on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replace the CCFL lamp.
To determine if the video card or the LCD is faulty, connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight. It could be a faulty inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out, usually the CCFL lamp fails before the inverter.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Widescreen 22" monitor won't stretch to fit screen


Without more details, it is really hard to provide assistance but here are some general items without knowing the model Monitor, the video card or the operating system you are using.

Generally (I can't know for sure without the LCD model) 22 inch LCDs have an optimal resolution of 1680 by 1050 pixels.

So the first thing you need to do is ensure that the video card display resolution is set to 1680 by 1050. If 1680 by 1050 is not an option in your display properties (In windows XP, right click the background, click properties, click settings tab, then slide the resolution bar to 1680 by 1050. Click OK) then try upgrading your video driver.

If that doesn't give you the 1680 by 1050 option, then your video card may need replacement with a better card.
