Question about Gateway FPD 1730 17" Flat Panel LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Won't come out of power saving mode

My FPD which I have won't come out of power saving mode. It stays dark as soon as I switch on the PC so I cannot boot it in safe mode. Is it the monitor? Should I just replace it? Just before this problem began last night, my keyboard started acting weird. I have a new wireless keyboard and mouse and I could access the F keys but not the main keyboard(could also use the mouse.) Anyway, I would be much obliged to any light you could shed on the subject as now I have to use my laptop since my Gateway desktop is useless.

Dark Screen


there is a weird possibility that somehow your PC is configured to save power.. that is something you can do on a laptop to save battery..
you can check in the control panel what is the status of your energy options and see whats going up there..
there is also another possibility that it might be the monitor to be malfunctioning... but if after the screen being dark and you enter the options on the monitor and they are bright i doubt its a malfunctioning monitor..
so try to reinstall the monitor drivers and possibly the drivers of your video card if you have one.. but my biggest bet would be the option energy in the control panel

Power saver mode appears on the screen and then shuts off display, after limited use leaving it blank. How do i fix it. using Windows XP?


You can open control panel and select power options in which you can preset the time necessary for screensaver, hibernate and switch off in battery as well as in power mode.
Once you ahve made the settings save and quit.
now check if the fault clears.

My monitor shows image immediately when switched on but just as soon the image appears the screen of the monitor goes dark after that need to off/on the power switch three to four times before the image...


Please restart your computer and tap the F8 key as soon as you see something on the screen. You should get the advanced boot menu. Select Safe Mode from the list.

Let me know if you were able to boot to safe mode.

My fpd 1730 moniters brightness and contrast are terrible, and i cant get the controls to work


nonnie707, It is very possible that your monitor's internal or external (lay on floor) "switch-mode-power-supply" has a problem. Prove that your pc is working by connecting KNOWN GOOD monitor to your pc!!! If you are not electronics technician then you will need to question Gateway as to warranty service or possible swapout for a REFURBISHED unit if your unit is deemed as premature failure. May cost $ for swap. READ my FIXYA profile and that of other FIXYA TECH's (buddymc, budmrtn) for more options as to "what to do"!!! Remember, If very strange and weird things start to happen (occur) with "cold-cathode-fluorescent-lamp" backlit LCD display, the first place I would investigate would be the units "switch-mode-power-supply" Good luck with the repair. 12fixlouie
