This is hardware so its a bit off topic.  But, I need advice on
sources of information.  I have a Gateway 17" flat screen monitor that
was given to me.  It ALMOST works.  That is to say that it flickers in
and out of operation.  I suspect a power supply problem as the screen
looks fine for a split second or so then goes blank.  Typing something
into the keyboard...anything...may make it flicker on again for a
second...etc.  Its as though the power supply is marginal and other
activity on the computer will pull it down enough to extinguish the

I suppose the power supply is built into the area behind the screen
but I have not taken it apart to look at it.  Wanted to wait until I
had some information to work from.

Does anybody have a source for schematics for the Gateway FPD-1838
