I garbage picked a gateway 19' wide screen LCD Display model #fpd1975w. When I plug in the monitor I do not get a picture but every few seconds the blue power light pops on and the monitor makes a squeak noise and the display lights up and displays Bars of Red green and blue horizontally across the screen like one bar of each which leads me to beleive its calibrating or something but then it shuts right back off. When I plug my pc into my normal monitor it works but the res is dropped down to 1440x900 which is what the monitor i garbage picked max res is. So the pc is picking up the monitor but the monitor doesnt work. I am positive the Panal part of the monitor works no cracks when it does display the bars of color it looks fine. So I am guessing that means that something is wrong with the electric circuit board in the back? The buttons on the side dont affect anything. I jus want to figure out if it is worth paying someone to fix it...Also does anyone know any nation wide chain that fixes stuff like this? I heard the geek squad fixes TVs they prolly fix monitors too. Thanks let me know if you need to know anything else.
