Who would let them keep money for this?
I bought a gateway FPD2275W monitor and am using it with Windows VISTA and NVIDIA 8800 video card.
The problem I'm having is that when I turn on the monitor it takes about 5 minutes to come on to the desktop. It shows a black screen with a faint Gateway word and logo then it will finally come on. I do not have the monitor driver loaded because when I did that the picture was all full of lines even with the VISTA updated monitor driver from gateway. So I went back to the generic monitor driver in VISTA. I have all the power saving options turned off. I do not have the monitor software installed as it has problems with VISTA. It also had the same problem with my other video card. Is there a setting within the monitor itself that would keep it from coming on? I noticed that the same thing happens with the same monitor in the store displays. The salespeople don't have a clue.
Thanks for any and all help.
