I had this same problem when i started. You cant plug the monitor into the normal serial port. You have to plug it into one of the graphics card ports near the bottom. The plug wont fit normally so you must use the little adapter piece that comes in the small box. Put that onto the monitor plug and insert it into the graphics card.

I have been fixing one for a customer. At first I thought that it was the typical burned out powersupply. Delta Electronics has created a replacement. The old REV 00 is 185 watts peak. The new REV01 is 185 nominal. Was the shaggy067 did not take the time to look up is that the 610 is an "All in one" modular monitor/case.
This customers is the first one that I have replace the power supply and it still does not work. I believe the flourescent backer of the LCD is shot. I will not know for sure until I find another one. The S-video works fine, so I am testing it using my projector. Everything works except the lcd panel.
check out http://www.32oz.com/mirror/Gateway_610/ for how to disassemble and replace the power supple. By the power supply from http://www.skyline-eng.com/ and not from the crooks on ebay. They are the only authorized rebuilders of the power supplies.

You give too little information. Is this a new monitor or new computer/video card? Obviously the monitor is OK, but it is also likely that your video card and/or settings are at fault. I would recommend trying a different monitor with the computer. After that, you should try escaping during the boot sequence (by pressing the Ctrl and F8 keys repeatedly during the bootup). This should then give you the option of booting in Safe Mode. This will allow you to then tweak the video card settings. Try a lower resolution setting. Of course this all assumes you are running Windows OS. Good Luck.

The problem is the video card on the computer its not the monitor itself. Check your video card or integrated video settings on your computer. Make sure everything is updated and running fine on your video card or integrated system.

Make sure your cables are all firmly connected. Also check the power strip or surge protector. If all is connected well and the pc will still not turn on it looks like the problem is the power supply unit, which can be replaced for around $20. I hope this works :).
