pmeyers843, If in fact your LCD is only a year old, I would first contact Gateway to see if they could do some sort of swap-out with your unit whoose switch-mode-power-supply and/ or cold-cathode-fluorescent-tube power supply (called an inverter circuit) has failed prematurely. Yes, this does happen to a lot of monitors of all brands not just Gateway! But it is way more likely to happen after 36-48 months into the life of well used lcd monitors that have lots of "ON" hours use! I also suggest you pay a visit to youtube and view some videos of LCD repair to show what are some of the components that typically cause a failure similar to your's. Get back to me if you need more info. I hope that this helps to solve your BLACK SCREEN problem. I'mlouie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel@aol.com
Good luck. Bye for now.

What has happened is part of your back lighting circuitry has gone out. Yes it is repairable but can cost most of what a replacement monitor will cost these days. Check that out before spending the money. If the problem is only in the back lighting circuit then expect to spend about $100 for a replacement board.

LCD monitors lifespan depends on the quality. Normal use and you should get 2-3 years of reliable service minimum. The display itself is good for about 4000 or so hours of use or more. The problems that show up are always (well 99.99% of the time) are back lighting problems like you have experienced. You should turn it off by the switch when not using it as every hour it runs the screen save is an hour of usable life. Heat is not good for it so if your computer gets the dust cleaned out to keep it cool do the monitor at the same time. Once a year at least more if you smoke use gas heat and have pets.

Tube monitors have a much longer life but you have the size weight and poorer display to go with them. If you have to go back to a tube monitor don't go back to your 14 ask around and you should be able to get a 17 or 19 crt for free. Or expect to pay no more than $10-20 for one.
