The battery you will have to replace, but you can test it in your controll panel options marked battery.
there are only so many moving parts in your computer to make noises. here are the ones that make the most noise.
FANS - on motherboard, inside case, in the power supply and on video cards (these and the metal pieces under them should be cleaned monthly or bymonthly with canned dry air. they are the #1 noisemakers in the computer and can be replaced inexpensively and without too much effort).
CD/DVD drives - will make noise when the computer starts (moreso, if a cd/dvd is in them), also anytime you are using them.
HARD DRIVE/S- will make a little clicking noise anytime at accessing information which is about 3/4 the time your computer is on.
If either the hard drive or cd/dvd rom is making grinding noises, it's a good indicator that they need or will need to be replaced soon. ALWAYS KEEP A BACKUP OF IMPORTANT FILES ON cd/dvd OR flash drive.
KEYBOARD-no moving parts besides keys and buttons- if you are hearing something from the keyboard besides an electronic click when the nunlock kicks on, you might have something living in there. but keyboard are easy and inexpensive to replace.
MONITOR - it will click , flash then come one when the computer or monitor is turned on, also will make clicking moises if it changes modes or resolution.
You have this listed in the DESKTOP section and ime pretty sure your refering to a laptop. Please correct me if ime wrong. I hope this will lead you in the direction of fixing it.. Please post more here if i can assist you further..
thank you for using fixya.

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

The inverter in this particular laptop is in the LCD screen itself. It's at the bottom, in the center. It's rather difficult to judge when looking at pictures online as they are usually way bigger than the piece actually is. Anyways, if you need pictures of where the inverter is, just let me know, I have this same laptop torn apart as well. Unfortunately for me the inverter was not the problem. On to the bulb now.
