Model MX3210 screen is black - intermittent

Hi

My friend has a gateway computer and she is experiencing black screen. Once in awhile the computer would display but most of the time it is black.

Does that sound like a video card problem. How much is a video card?

Thanks
Linda

It is likely that your memory card is not properly attached to its slot, detach it and place it in a different slot right beside it.

Whenim on my hp g62 for awhile the screen will go white


There is probably a intermittent problem in the actual LCD display or the built in board, either case the screen down the road will need to be replaced. Check www.ebay.com type make and model of laptop, refine search to screen, this will a idea of pricing.

My screen turns black upon startup. For awhile when my screen was on, it would flicker on and off but remain on. Now, the only time I can see the screen is when I unplug vga cable then plug back in but...


You mention a VGA cable so I assume its a stand alone monitor for a desktop PC.

It can be repaired,this fault is usually indicative of a capacitor, maybe two or three bursting in the

a) Power supply.
b) Back Lighter.
or
C) Inverter.

As its 6 years old, I would suggest replacing would be the most cost effective resolution.

Replacement video card gateway mx 3210 notebook


Unfortunately you have a lap top and the Video card is built into the motherboard. You have two choices. 1. Send the unit to Gateway and have the motherboard replaced, expensive and time consuming. 2, Replace the laptop with a new one, expensive but most likely a better solution.

MY GATEWAY LAPTOP SCREEN WENT BLACK AFTER 20 MIN OR MORE


I'm betting that you need a new "Inverter" board, especially if it's a Gateway 450ROG.
There is an inverter that Gateway used in several models that has a known defect.
Inverters are relatively inexpensive ,and easy to replace. You could ven do it yourself if you have a little skill at disassembly / re-assembly. Tell me the model number of your laptop and I can help you more

Look for cracks in the hinges. It is a big problem with the Gateway 7330GZ.
