All the lights of my gateway MT3418 are on, but screen is black

This laptop was dropped a couple of weeks ago and I had to have the lcd screen replaced. After the screen was replaced it worked fine for a couple of weeks and then the screen went black while I was on it. HELP!!!!

    I tried to hook up my laptop to my tv. Didn't work. I used the wrong S cable size for my computer it was a 7pin I tried a 4pin. This resulted in my gateway laptop monitor problem. I can see the screen if I look at it really close in sunlight. But that is it? Any solution or did I blow the backlight or something else? Thanks for any help. Mary Ann

if you upgraded it through an internet connection there's a possibility your windows OS will crash, better or try to reformat it with a windows installer dvd.

My Gateway mt3418 has dead video card what is solution?


Typically, installing a video card will have to be done by the manufacturer. Finding this type of part, especially from Gateway, will be very difficult. Installing the part will be even harder.

Getting this fixed may be more than the actual laptop is worth.

Contact Gateway for pricing.

I can tell the power is on but I get nothing on the screen.


If you see a dim image or flicking image on the LCD screen it means you have a backlight problem.
Connect an external monitor to the laptop and power it up, if you see a clear image on an external monitor, this means your video card is OK.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.
