Hi I am using a Gateway g6 300 win98
When ever I turn the computer off and back on this monitor will not power up.
If I wait 2 weeks and plug it back up it works fine until I power off the computer.
Anyone know how to fix this
Sounds like the power ON circuitry for the unit has gone or is going out. When you state you unplug it and wait 2 weeks and plug it back in and works fine, this is direction of allowing the capacitive circuit to completely drain befor the unit is officially "Off". Something is causing the "on" circuits to hold the charge making the unit think it is still "on". By letting it sit and discharge, the circuit "resets" itself. The only real way to figure this out is to take it to a TV repair shop (not much different than a tv) and let them diagnose it. But it maybe worth the time to trouble to just replace it at this point.

If the speakers are built in, check that the volume on the speakers via OSD is not turned all the way down or off. Many monitors that have speakers have an audio amplifier as the sound output from computers is very low and requires a powered speaker system in most cases. They are designed to operate head phones only now a days.
Most common failures in the LCD monitors are bad capacitors (bulging top/seal or leaking) in the power supply, failed inverter circuits (blown fuse, shorted transistors, shorted/open transformers), bad lamps (poor solder connections or worn out lamps). You will need to open it up and inspect the inside, see example of failed monitors to get some ideas what to look for: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums Post back what you see inside so we can guide you further and it will help out other people in the future also. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague http://www.badcaps.net
well it's not the computer going to sleep but the monitor is (sort of) because your computer is telling to. it has to do with the Power Options (title dependent on OS - this is what it's called in Vista)
Go to Control Panel>>Power Options - on the left hand column click Choose when to turn off the display - I'm guessing you are set to 15 or 20 minutes for the Turn off the display dropdown - change it to something longer to satisfy your needs (Never is an option).
If you're not running Vista write back - it's slightly different but similar path.
Ok? first what you need to do is to hibernate your computer. You can do that by pressing the power button as long as you need for the computer to turn off. Then you turn your computer back on and press the power button ON THE MONITOR twice but you MUST do this really fast. Then what you need to do is to find a circuit breaker on the back of your computer. switch it to the off position then turn it back on. Then turn your computer on. This should fix your problem.
A common problem to LCD displays. If you can somehow still see the desktop (...barely see the picture ...) then chances are that you have a backlight problem. This may either be the light itself which is a thin florescent lamp (CCF) or the inverter that powers it.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
