Question about Gateway FPD1950

2 Answers

Dead monitor I just moved into a new house and as soon as I went to set up my computer my monitor did not power on. When I plug it in the on/off button flashes like its turning on but quickly turns off and nothing happens. I have tried both different power cables as well as different outlets.. Same results.. Am I out of luck or is it a simple fix..

    Took the tower in for video card replacement and now the monitor won't power up. Power button and screen flicker briefly when power is connected and that is all.

I've the same problem with my 1950. I'm told it is a problem with the logic card, and not the power supply. to 'The Marv', I don't know what the graphics card has to do with 'louee's' problem of the power not coming on..

Make sure the monitor is connected to the right video graphics card. This will happen if you are using the wrong one. Because at one time someone added another graphics card. Move the computer and put the monitor cable back in the wrong port on the back of the computer.
