Question about Gateway FPD1810 18.1" LCD Monitor
My monitor is not booting up this morning. I keep getting just the Gateway logo and no further activity. At times logo flashes and other times is steady. I did not shut my computer or monitor off last evening. I have shut down the system by turning off power to no avail.
First, narrow down the problem to either the monitor, or to the computer itself. Either try the monitor on a spare or friend's computer, or try a known working monitor on your computer. I'd guess your computer is where the issue is at- it isn't booting the Operating System (MS XP or whatever O/S is present on the hard disk. if the computer is the issue, try booting from the CD which came with the computer, (assuming you have that CD). Or, you could see if some computer tech savvy person has a bootable floppy diskette. Basically a "no-boot" problem, can point to a number of problems: hardware issue (bad hard drive etc.), or an operating system problem.
