    Not a damn thang comes up on the monitor. Tried using the vga plug instead. Still nothing shows on the screen. The power button won't even cut the monitor off.

    same issue...plugging the power cord in give me 1 sec of blue on the power button, then a quick blue flash on the power button then off with no display coming on at all...

    For the last few days I have had to unplug the power cord from the monitor to get it to go on. The power button does nothing. Today, I unplug/plug the power cord in and I hear a humm for two seconds, get the Gateway logo on screen for one second then screen goes black.

On these it is usually the power/inverter board that causes this problem.
I repair quite a few fpd series models.

Sounds like T'Con board fault. Contact any service technician. When video signal interfaces, it goes overloaded. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

Have tv kitchen, but remote will operate living room unless we point it toward the floor


Funnily enough I could not find any simple code programming solution to your problem. I have read about others having a similar problems with no effective solutions offered.

The simplest option then would be to swap out one of the tv's in question for one that doesn't respond to the same remote signals. Maybe you have one downstairs or in a bedroom or a friend's that you could swap.

Another potential solution is placing some black electrical tape or a sticker over most of the sensor area on the tv, leaving only a very small opening or hole clear (like a bullseye) for the remote's signal to get through. Hopefully this will allow only the signal from remotes that are pointed directly at the tv to get through and control the tv.

Sorry I couldn't think of anything more elegant, but it is a curious problem without a proper solution for now.

Good luck and please post back if this was helpful or with how you make out.

No signal from computer to monitor 8/13/08!


I had the exact same problem!! Drove me crazy for days. Couldn't find any answers online, contacted Gateway tech support and they told me my warranty was expired but they'd be happy to discuss my issue for $2 per minute. Gateway can **** it!!

At first I thought the problem might be a malfunctioning NVIDIA card, a problem with my DVI cable, or the monitor itself. But, after turning off the computer, unplugging the DVI cable, replugging the DVI cable and restarting the computer, I noticed I could get the firmware flash screen to show, including the BIOS menu boot and the Gateway system reinstall screen to show. As soon as the Windows flash logo would display, however, the monitor would drop out and display the dreaded "No Signal" error.
This indicated the problem was a software one and not hardware! The cable, monitor and video card were all working fine. Then I remembered that Windows installed its automatic update a few days prior. In fact...

THE PROBLEM TURNED OUT TO BE A WINDOWS UPDATE INSTALLED A FEW DAYS PRIOR.

After succesfully booting into safe mode (F8 during the flash/bootup screens), I went to Add or Remove programs in the control panel, clicked on the "Show Updates" box on the top, and uninstalled the Windows update from a few days prior to the occurance of the error. After a reboot the problem was solved.

I hope this will help anybody else struggling with this error!

Monitor - No Signal


Hi,

I am assuming that you are referring to the same monitor working only if the PC is in Safe Mode but not in Regular Mode.

This is possibly due to the Screen Resolution and/or the Refresh Rate Settings of your Video Card to way too high for the monitor. While in Safe Mode lower these settings in your Display Properties.

.Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
