Question about Gateway MT3705 Notebook

Monitor light w/ electric pluged in my monitor screen is dark and difficult to find the mouse arrow b/c of lack of light. If I unplug & use battery the monitor screen lights up making it easy to see and read. When I plug in the elect the screen darkens. How do I increase the light when the computer is pluged in? It has to be a setting b/c I did not have this problem before. Please help. Thanks, Randall PS I have a gateway laptop cetrino w/ windows xp.

Power light goes out but power remains thru the m-board fan runs


you need to replace the power supply. The fan sound is the fan for the power supply and not the computer. for cheap parts or used goto headgap's. They know what you need and probably even help you replace it yourself.

Gateway model # CX 2618


First test if it works on an external monitor. If it does you will need to clear the CMOS. To clear it:
remove the battery, unplug the cord, and hold the ON button down for 30-60 seconds. Then turn it on. Thats how you clear it on most laptops.
If it does not work on the external monitor, you probally have a bad video card and need to replace the old one

My arrow on monitor froze all troubleshooting says mouse OK


Normal 0 Turn the mouse over and find the small rest/connect button on the bottom of the mouse and press it. This should connect the mouse to the receiver and work properly. If not, try pressing the receiver button and then press the button on the mouse. This should be done whenever you change batteries or glitch.
Hope this helps you. Bud
