Answers :

Its sounds like you have fallen victim to the bad capacitors on these models. You can Google gateway capacitor problems and find a ton in information and unhappy people. I was one of them and had the same symptoms as you. Mine would power up with a blue light then turn orange and not come back on one day then the next it would work untill it finnaly quit all together. I ended up replacing 6 bad ones on my inverter board. This cost me about $5.00 for the parts at Radio Shack and alot of time+beer lol. You can find alot information on this here http://www.badcaps.net/ There are also alot of guys on e-bay that will replace the caps for you if you mail them the board. You can just go to ebay and type monitor power inverter board. This will return a few of these guys.

I hope this helps and have a great weekend
