Having problems with your Gateway FPD1975W 19" LCD Monitor ?
My monitor comes on with a good picture but after about 15 seconds the screen goes blank.
Most probably a failing capacitor, if you can, unplug it, leave it for 12 hours or so and remove the back cover carefully and check for bulging or blowing capacitors.
