Having problems with your Gateway PC Desktops ?
Monitor wont read the harddrive
First (and I am sure you have already checked this), I would make sure all cables are connected and all power cords are connected. If the monitor comes on but there is no image I would try to use the buttons on the front of the monitor to adjust the brightness and contrast and see if this fixes the problem. If neither of these solutions work, then try a different monitor. If you try a different monitor and still it does not work, then something may be wrong with your video card inside your computer and either the video card will need to be replaced. Or you may need to buy a video card if the monitor plugs directly into the motherboard (big circuit board inside the computer). Hope this helps.
