by texaskoala / September 8, 2014 1:57 AM PDT

I have a Gateway TFT LCD monitor FPD2275W. It working fine except I have this box right in the middle that says NO SIGNAL and under it Red Green and Blue squares. can't move it.

I went to Gateway site and I guess the monitor is too old, they don't show a driver for it. Any suggestions besides get a new monitor?

I see this is VGA as well as DVI so try the other input. Sorry if I don't tell you how to operate or switch inputs as you've had this for so many years.

Monitors don't have drivers

Monitors don't have drivers. If you see a "driver" for a monitor it's probably just a color profile or it's really for an embedded webcam, not the monitor. For all intents and purposes, monitors just blindly display whatever the video card tells them to.

Hi , Jimmy

Right. You are saying right. Display problems are among the most common difficulties people have when upgrading either Windows or their computers.

Thanks jimmy.. nice information

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
