Having problems with your Gateway FPD 1830 18.1" Flat Panel LCD Monitor ?

Gateway FPD 1830 18.1 in. Flat Panel Problem

\015 Display of Win desktop is very dark (barely readable enough to read email) and contrast is not all that great -- EXCEPT that when making new settings (brightness, contrast, etc) the OSD window is just fine (nice brightness and contrast. So it appears the inverter and backlight are fine.\015\012\015\012So you end up with a dim screen everywhere but in the OSD window, which seems to be very good.\015\012\015\012Is this a logic board issue or something that can be "fixed" with a new driver or some sort of calibration? (This monitor was given to me in this condition and the testing is based on my own computer with no installed drivers for this specific monitor. (My normal Samsung monitor looks great on this system.\015\012\015\012Thanks -- John\015

Answers :

Usually in these cases the power supply would be the issue, but you say the OSD window shows up clearly, So the LCD panel is good and the Power Supply /inverter depending on which your FPD has.
FPD 1830 should have 3 boards(logic, Inverter, Power) otherwise just 2(logic, power)

If it is super dim, the problem is the inverter. Or the Power Supply if the inverter is embedded

Otherwise what your issue is the logic board, if you can swap out that part for a good one, Chances are for sure that you will have a spanking new FPD working.

I've worked with these a lot. Im working on one right now.
I hope this helps
Wish you luck

Router problem. Time Warner had a internet problem last Sunday, April 26 here in the Northeast. They fixed it, but our internet still didn't function properly as it did before the TWC problem. Very slow connections and timing out most of the time. Talked to TWC tech person, and found out that internet was fine to my main computer, but when the router was hooked up the problem came back. Netgear WGR614 v4. Only thing TWC said was to try and change channel. We tried but problem still exists.

My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
