Question about Gateway FPD2275W LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Window slowly rolls down when closed.

Why does the window slowly roll down to close as opposed to simply closing immediately and going away? It use to do that but now it rolls away. Any ideas? - - Terry

    What are you talking about with roller skates, orders, trays, root beers and burgers? It makes no sense.

    My problem is when I have a window up, any window, like this one and I close it, sometimes it rolls down slowly to close as opposed to closing immediately. I don't know what an OSD is.

    By the way Saigua,

    I wanted to give you benefit of the doubt but my first impression was right, I guess.

    I don't need to be told what drive-in restaurants are only to try to understand why you used that as a lame analogy. I was asking an honest question as I am NOT ashamed to admit that I am not as computer literate as many people. Also, a week ago I had a Dell flat screen that burned out and I had an extra Gateway screen I am using temporarily. I would not have bought this screen, even I know the difference.

    I am sorry if I did not meet your expectations of having something "honestly broken" and if I ask another question, I will try my best to put it in the right ****** catagory. This is the first time I ever used this site and I am unimpressed with your condescending bovine referenced answer. Please continue to try to impress other people and I will look for my own answers.

    Thanks anyway. - - - Terry

I have a 2333. I am running Windows XP How do I change aspect ratio? (currently letterbox with distorted screen)

Close all windows and go to the desktop on your computer. Right click with your mouse on the screen, but away from any ICON's. You will see a drop down list of choices. Find the one that says "properties" and click on it. This will take you to the area where you can set your view settings. Change the numbers by going one at a time and it will allow you to preview the screen. When you get to the one you want, save it and exit this area.

Cant close the Menu Box from the Monitor

More like to be bad Flash ROM in the logic board is scrambled (not much you can do unless the firmware can be reloaded). You can try looking inside for such thing as bad caps on the logic board and the power supply/inverter board just for luck.

Monitor display is blurry, with shadows and waves next to text

Could be one of two related situations both have to do with built up magnetic flux:

!. If you have used the monitor for a significant amount of time and have never degaussed it that might be it.

To fix: Go to where your monitor's controls are (eg screen size/position, Brightness, Contrast, etc.). Providing that we are referring to an older style monitor (like a TV) and not a flat screen, you should find a degaussing button located there. This button is marked with a depiction of a horseshoe magnet. Press it.

If you have on screen settings control, hit the menu button and select the icon that looks like a horseshoe magnet.

You'll hear a buzz and the screen will go kooky for a moment.

You're then degaussed. Your problem should go away.

2. You may have moved the monitor close to a source of electromagnetic interference (or vice-versa) this will also cause that sort of thing you describe (remember that there are electrical lines in the walls (another source of EMI)

In that case move the monitor away from the EMI source or move the EMI source away from the monitor.

Remember that it could be both 1 and 2. So if the problem lessens but does not go away fully try both steps.

Desktop icons appear as a shadow on all windows.

[u][b]LCD Monitor Shadow Effect[/b][/u]
This problem is best described as the LCD monitor "Shadow Effect".
The solution to this very simple. No software or hard ware changes required.
The cables that are connected to the LCD monitors are causing the problem. Its also called as electromagnetic noise or electrical noise.
[u][b]Solution: [/b][/u]Keep the two cables - (power cable and moitor display cable), that are connected to the LCD monitor as far away as possible with each other and also away from other electrical cables.
Thats it. Your shadow effect is fixed.
Thank you.

Will not close down

These monitors go into a standby just incase you are only restarting the PC.
To turn it off properly, hit the power button on the monitor before Windows has completely turned the computer off.

IE: tell Windows to shutdown, when you see the blue screen telling you Windows is shutting down, turn it off then.

Hope that helps
