Did you make sure that everything is plugged in correctly? Are you sure that the monitor power cord is plugged into the wall and is receiving power? those are one of the signs that the power cord or the cable to the desktop is not plugged in when you are not able to see the monitor and the light at the bottom of the monitor is not lite up. If it is lite up and it is green and it still does not show your operating system when you turn on the computer, then it is more than likely your video card. but if your monitor is plugged in and the light at the bottom is orange then it is the monitor that needs replacing.
It sounds to me like your computer is not sending a signal to the monitor. If you switch monitors (borrow one if you don't have one) and the results are the same, I would look for the problem in your computer. Assuming you never see anything on the monitor when starting up the computer, the video card is suspect. Of course, you need to check the cable connections and see if the video card (if an add-on card) is tight in the slot in the motherboard.
First things first a quick check list: 1 Make sure monitor plugged in. 2 Turn on monitor. If there are words and instructions displayed then there is power in monitor. Green light for power next to buttons, etc. If there is no warnings or alerts on the screen. Then we have a power issue to the monitor. Or your back light has gone out preventing you from seeing welcome screen alerts etc. 3. If there is welcome screen alerts etc. then check your plug to the PC. If its connected, then your settings on your PC for the monitor are not configured. If you have two of the same plugs on your computer for the monitor. switch them and roobot. Let me knows how this worked out. Thanks.
It could be your monitor is fine. It simply goes to a cycle when its turned on and does not detect any signal coming from your CPU, it simply goes on standby mode (hence the darker image and orange/blinking light.) have you checked the computer (CPU) part?
i dont think there is but there might be a switch inside the housing of the screen i would call gateway! it was sold with a 115v power cord so its proabaly factory set to use 115v you might however be able to change it? if you open the cover to the screen please make sure you know what you are doing TOUCHING THE WRONG THING CAN/WILL KILL YOU!!!!! please be careful :)
