I too have a Gateway 19 in flat panel widescreen (FPD1975W), and here's the issue I'm having: every time I boot up or turn the monitor on, it stays on for half a second before going blank. The power button remains on but the screen is black. I turn the power off and on, and the image will appear for a split second before going black again. Any thoughts on why this is happening? It's a brand new computer/monitor.
