Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor

1 Answer

When powered on, it shows the Gateway splash screen and all of the blue LEDs light up for a second but then nothing. It's like its not hooked to the video card but it is. Older system with windows 98se which normally have a Dell LCD monitor on it. I'd really like to get it to work but I don't know much about monitors. Any help would be appreciated.

If the monitor is a multiple source monitor then it could be stuck on an incorrect source or may not support auto source detection. See if there is a button to change the source. This will typically, but not always, be labeled source or have an icon that looks like a square with an arrow.
If there is no way to change the source or it is a single source monitor then you should see if it works on another system.
Since you shared that there is normally a dell monitor on the system then it is safe to say the computers video output is working correctly, but it is possible that the Gateway monitor will not work with the older hardware of the system.
I wish you the best of luck

Gateway laptop i push power button it wont boot up but leds in front flash 4 times


Try holding down the power button instead of just pushing it. I had this problem with my HP dv7 and holding the power button down for around 5 seconds worked for me. Also make sure that its plugged in to a power source.

This indicates a motherboard issue, remove main battery and test, if no change! remove the ram memory one at a time and test each, if no result! it is time to get a professional in to assess.

Gateway FPD1750 monitor's keep go black screen, no picture at al


tgordon60, If you know how those NEW "CURLIE-Q" energy efficient CFL light bulbs produce WHITE LIGHT, then you will know what makes an LCD display panel produce all the pretty colors and the WHITE BACKGROUND of the FIXYA web page!!! Only difference is that your "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamps" are thinner and straight, and hung on rear of LCD glass panel and have a DC to AC electronic ballast called an "INVERTER" circuit to produce 600 to 1000vac to light them up. Get to my FIXYA profile and read my responses to other BLACK screen lcd owners to learn about all your options for repair. Follow any of the links to other web pages you find there. Your monitor not any different than ACER, DELL, VIEWSONIC, BENQ, SONY, AOC!!!!! 12fixlouie aka louie12fix

Laptop not booting up and nothing showing up on the screen


What leds you can see blinking on laptop? Can you hear any bootup sounds? Sometimes my laptop hangs on standby or hibernat, then screen is black and some leds may blink. Usually i need to take charger and battery off for 10 seconds and boot up again. If that dont help then there must be some hardware damage.
