Question about Gateway 450SX4 Notebook
My 450sx4 laptop is having problems with its screen becoming jumbled. The computer runs fine when I place it on a flat desktop. However, when handling it by the base, a bunch of lines/colored squares jumble the screen. If I bend the computer base with my hands, the monitor becomes more or less jumbled. This led me to think that there may be an unsecure connection in the hardware, or the motherboard isn't being properly secured. I tightened the motherboard screws but that didn't seem to help. Also, I connected the laptop to a CRT monitor and got these same results, so there isn't a problem in the connection with the lcd. Thanks in advance for your help!
I dont have a solution but i have this same problem but mine will do it when its flt to then my computer will not turn on for up to three months we have tryed sending this computer to gateway many times and they say that they will send us a e-mail with solutions but none of them ever do i dont no what to do

It could possibly be the video card, I don't know that much about how hardware is laid out in that model, whether it is an built in card or a connected one so I cannot give you any trouble shooting tips. Do you still have tech support available with Gateway?
