Question about Gateway PC Desktops
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.
