Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hello, I have a Gateway MT3419 computer that works almost perfectly; the screen is a big problem. Works well, then suddenly goes dark. Can still see images on the screen when tilted towards the light. Have worked around the problem by closing the laptop and then re-opening which makes the light magically come back on. Sometimes, works well for weeks or days without this happening. Other times, happens every few minutes. Very inconvenient to say the least. Warranty has expired so Mfg. says will charge a few hundred to fix. My local repair shop says the inverter needs replacing and will cost about $150 to fix, but that this may not solve the problem. A friend has suggested that the backlight is the problem. Any ideas? Worth fixing? Computer is a little over a year old. Thanks in advance!

Deffinitely worth fixing and be happy it will only cost $200 or less to fix.

Next time make sure you get the extended warrenty, there are 3rd party vendors such as found on amazon that covers this sort of thing.

Hello I'm looking for a sound driver for a Gateway MT3419 for Windows XP...this laptop came originally installed with Vista so I understand how tough it can be to find the drivers for a downgrade.


Try to download the driver from this link. It's the latest official Vista drivers but at many many cases works great on XP too. In case that Windows prompt you that it's not verified e.t.c. accept it and continue the installation. At the end of the installation reboot the system.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

Power does not go on. was using it and all of a sudden the blue power light went red and it would not come back on. it is a gateway model W34OUA OR MT3419 AND IS 2-3 YRS OLD


Red light means battery is dead. Does it charge when you plug itt in? If not it is most likely your power adapter on your motherboard.

Hello,

The next thing to try would be to resolder all of the connections on the transformers in your monitor. If you can take a few pictures of the board and email them to me I will mark the points to check and send it back to you.

Hmm? Everything except replacing the motherboard, sometimes it does not get any better, but...go into your BIOS and turn off the Gateway splash screen. It will be an option in maybe the first or second menu choice. Make sure your on board video device is disabled and save your options when exiting. Good luck and let me know how it turns out.

You may need to go onto the system board and reseat the connection. It could be loose. Maybe a drop or some type of sudden impact caused it. If that doesn't work then your LCD inverter is going bad and you my need to replace the LCD screen.
