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.

Gateway desktop screen is black


Swap the cables between the PC and the monitor. Does the fault stay with the monitor or switch to the PC? If it switches, your power lead is dead (possibly a blown fuse). If it stays, your monitor is probably dead.

Gateway lcd monitor hx2000 hit by lightning how do


Replace the motherboard. It will be cheaper to replace the monitor. If an item of electronic equipment gets hit by over 100,000 volts it is dead, not just having a rest.

I have a Gateway 840 GM and I have just replaced


At first check the battery that's on you motherboard. The battery powers the bios on your motherboard. The bios detects you push the power button and turns on the pc. If the battery is dead the bios has no power, so it cannot detect you push the power button and will not turn on the pc. So replacing the battery will solve the problem. If the battery is not the problem, I think your motherboards bios is dead. Maybe it can be fixed but you'll have to send it back to the manufacturer I think.

My Gateway Computer Screen is faded ,everythink looks like on the screen ...for example- you print something and no paint in the printer and the colors letters.etc. hardly visible ....so my computer screen...


It sounds like the voltages set in the LCD driver color references are dead. Maybe if you open it up it will have a loose voltage divider or bad LCD clock/voltage distribution boss circuit. It can of course be that the transistors on the panel are themselves destroyed, but check the below first:

Set the resolution to the monitor's native resolution (1680x1050), and change the panel's brightness and contrast to try and improve things. If it's not glare, make sure the temperature is okay for operating the monitor and perhaps check the video source (another video card or such.) Did the monitor always have this problem?
