I've had my compaq presario cq61 for about 2-3 years. A while back it would occasionally have a kind of shaky/blinky screen but just in the past week it's like the screen has stopped working.


The problem may be due the graphics card or data cable or backlighting.

The data cable can be severed over time though opening and closing the display. This can be replaced.
The backlighting/inverter dies, some-times the windows desktop screen can be seen if one looks carefully. This can also be replaced.

Try connect your notebook to another computer's monitor via VGA or HDMI out.

If this works then the problem lies with your LCD screen.

Take care!

When i move my Gateway W323-UI1 it freezes


that's BAD! it sounds like there's something loose inside your laptop. the only thing i can suggest is flip it over, unplug the power cord, remove all the panels from the back and the battery and shake it and see if anything falls out. while you're in there make sure that you ram chips are securely installed.

Loose Monitor on a HP Pavilion ZV6233nr Laptop


It seems that some screw that was loose is now totally out of socket. The latch assembly might be disbalanced due to that. To me it doesn't seem to be a broken latch.

Screen blackouts & graphics mess up


I have experienced the same problem with an Nvidia graphics card. From what I could tell, it was an overheating issue to begin with, which quickly turned into a damaged graphics card. What I ended up doing on my desktop is opening up the side of the case, and decreasing the graphics load on the card. I still ended up having to replace the graphics card. I would suggest upgrading to windows 7 as well, even if you have driver problems, the upgrades in the OS seem to handle the errors much better and recovers without the severe color / rendering problems like XP did.
If you are confident it was not an overheating issue that started this, please boot your computer into safe mode, completely uninstall the graphics drivers, reboot into safe mode and install the drivers again. Most Operating Systems tend to stay 'sick' from old drivers even when you're using new drivers, so the best way to do it is completely get rid of it, and put it back in.

Screen does not stay up


Yes. Simply remove the hinge cover (above the keyboard). If you see a small notch on either side, you'll need a small screwdriver to pop it off by prying it and listening for the pops. It's scary the first time, but don't worry, it won't break, it's meant to be a beehatch to get off :P. But be sure your lappy is turned off, battery removed, and that the screen is as open as it can be before doing this 180 degrees!
Once it's off, you should be able to see the hinges, if they look loose, tighten them with jewel screwdrivers.
To put the cover back on, put it back on the opposite direction you took it off, and at a slight angle, press down moving from one side to the other until you hear it snap into place. The very end might take some leverage and muscle.

If this doesn't work, your hinges are getting old (and believe me dell ones are ****) and wearing out, and unfortuneately, only a book or smth can help you then. The only other fix is getting some dell lcd bezel hinges and replacing them (or sending it away to get it fixed), although it will be fixed for sure then.

Gateway CX2620 Swivel Screen Laptop


This is the worst solution I've ever heard. This guy is trying to steer you wrong I'm pretty sure. There is zero point in removing all the screws from under the batter/ zero point to removing the area around the power button. Absolute BS. The only part to remove is the part just above the top of the keyboard (silver strip with some black). Then by removing that you can pry the swivel black plastic cover off. Whatever you do.. do not follow Scott's writeup here. I'm telling you. It's sad it's stayed up so long.. so had to warn.

Gateway Table PC Cx2620 Screen Wobble


Unplug and remove the battery pack for safety. DOn't want any shorts to happen. With the laptop open, gently pry with a very small blade the plastic cover at the front of the swivel and remove. It is in two pieces...front and back. It is OK to leave the rear half in place. Once removed you must close the laptop again. You will now have access to the screws on the hinges. Use a small Robertson screwdriver to tighten the screws. Snap the cover back in place....Voila!. IF the screws are broken (like mine were) remove all the good screws, gently lift and move the screen slightly forward, remove the broken screws with some needle nose pliers. Reassemble with new screws. I found some screws at the local computer geek shop in his selection of random screws. THey are quite tiny. CHeck Future Shop if they are in your area as they deal and repair Gateway so you may have a better chance of finding some screws that work. Good Luck.
