Good day
Look at the top of your skype program where you see, Skype, Contacts, Conversation and so forth, look for and click on "Tools" after you click on Tools a little window will pop down and then click on "Options", then look to the left and click on "Audio Settings".

The window to the right will change at the top you will see "Microphone" click on the drop down box to the right of it and a list of all your microphones will come up click on each and test until you find the one that you are currently using.

I have attached pictures below to assist you.

1. Charge the battery for 2 hours,
2. Press the power button.

If the laptop does not start, you can do this:
Please use the VGA port (VGA external monitor), also please do these:
1. Unplug the AC adapter,
2. Remove the battery,
3. Remove the hard drive,
4. Press the power button and hold it for 15 seconds,
5. Plug in the AC adapter,
Restart the laptop.
If the problem persist,
Note: Do not insert the battery, and do not install the hard drive.
1. Unplug the AC adapter
2. Reseat the memory (remove it and reinstall it),
3. Plug in the AC adapter,
Restart the laptop.
If those actions do not solve the problem, then your GPU/motherboard is dying.

If you purchase a new hard drive and install an OS, you can then, with a usb hd adapter, copy your data back over.

I had the same problem. Leave your laptop on the charger until the light turn blue. Then turn it on to see if it woks. Other is to switch your roms around.

Check device manager see if driver is showing for cd/dvd
If you have a recovery partition on the laptop You can reinstall your drivers and software using your recovery option.
Recovery should be in START/ALL PROGRAMS/SYSTEM RECOVERY (you may need to click Gateway Utilities first).
Then select application& driver recovery
.Or you can download from gateway http://gateway.com/worldwide/ select country then supporrt then drivers download.

Make sure it is not accidently set to display on an external monitor only by using the following keyboard hot-key:

Hold down the 'Fn' (function) key and click the 'F4' key.

If the screen still appears dead you will want to check if the PC is still under warranty and send it back to the manufacturer for replacement. If not, a nearby PC repair shop should be able to replace the screen.
