using a Gateway computer which is running XP with a Dell flat panel monitor. monitor goes into power save mode from the moment the computer gets to the desktop. Most of the time no matter what I do, it won't work. I have tried cycling the power to the monitor,to the computer. Tried moving the mouse and pressing keys on the keyboard. I've tried using another monitor (the gateway monitor that came with the computer won't work on the gateway at all anymore.) I can't test the monitor on the other computer because of the way the cable is made to plug it into the computer.Warranty ran out in '08.
Sometimes I can get it to work for a few minutes and can even get on the internet, then the screen blacks out. I hope someone can help me with this problem.
