You or someone who has had the laptop has obviously dropped the laptop or sat something heavy on top of the laptop there is no way the would randomly happen.

Screen goes black but I can see contents if light is shined on it


YES - BUT - Most likely it is due to a bad cable from monitor to computer. or could also be bogus video card. Manufacturers Defects do happen though. I would chekc the cable first. If you got the receipt - Bring it back and get cha a new one!

Whatare the obstacles and incompatibilities that may arise in a multivendor networking


one of the problems for this is that "how" you set up your network because in this kind of business, when a gateway or a pc in the entire domain or workgroup is down, can possibly affect the entire business. So you need to strengthen your network (a backup would be a need) for continuous operation.

A month out of warranty, our Gateway FX530S broke down (Serial Number 0040289739). We called in the Geek Squad and they replaced the power source. However, less than a month later, the computer...


gateways are not that good of a pc, they are only built to last about a year (they won't tell you this of course) the best thing you can do at this time is buy extended warranty on the laptop, wait about 2 weeks and send it in for repair, it will work out much cheaper than having to replace the motherboard

Gateway flat LCD dead


I'm not sure if your referring to the lcd monitor (gateway brand) or a laptop's lcd screen not working anymore.

1. if it's an lcd monitor...
a. test monitor in a different pc before assuming the problem is the lcd screen
b. replace the monitor if after testing monitor is in deed the item failing.

2. if it's the lcd screen from your gateway laptop.
a. you may be able to attach a regular analog monitor to the paralel port on your gateway.. test and see if the monitor that you attach will give you a picture (you may have to toggle with some some keys on your laptop keyboard to make have the signal going to the "externa" or attached monitor.
if the other monitor does not work either.. you video controller on your motherboard on your laptop may be failing and you may not have other options that to replace your laptop.
b. if the external/attached monitor works.. very likely the problem is the lcd screen for that you need to get a replacement and you may have to contact gateway to find out about pricing (or places to send your laptop for service if you're still within warranty). if you have an old laptop you may have to considere simply replacing the unit as buying a new lcd screen may very likely be more expensive than the same working laptop.

I'm nieces M-6750 gateway laptop has frozen on her twice she had it for almost 2 month


this is normal. as long as it reboots you are ok. most likely it's overheating from sitting in her lap. Ironically, laptops are not supposed to sit in your lap. You should use it on a table so it gets good air flow.
