The inverter or backlight is on its way out, it won't bother the operating system but you can see nothing, with most inverters its the coil that goes which is fairly inexpensive to fix, if it is the inverter, thats a lot more expensive, what you can do for time being is plug an exteral monitor into the laptop so you use it.

hope this helps

regards

Gateway laptop screen darkens after boot up


Have you updated a Graphic driver? Does it Dim on battery and AC? Look at power settings. Control Panel, Power. You could Rool-Back the graphic driver to see if that changes the problem. A Gateway mt6841 has Windows XP OS, right?

LOOKING FOR A REPLACEMENT SCREEN


Darken the screen and either move the lid forward or backwards. Laptops have Liquid Crystal Screens and moving the lid backwards or forward will give the screen a different look.

If you need to adjust the brightness of the screen it is controlled by keys on your laptop. Most times to darken the screen you will have to hit the FN, CTRL or ALT key and hold it down while you hit the key that corresponds to the screen darken key. On some computers (even on my laptop) it will be the down arrow key, so i would press FN+the down arrow key. Remember to hold the first key down while you hit the next key. The icon used for most times to denote the brightness or darkness looks like a circular sun or a washer that goes on screws.

Coil Part Number for Gateway MT3707 Inverter Board


Hi

Thnak you for your query

You will have to replace the WHOLE inverter board, not just part of it

The inverter is responsible for taking 12V supply and converting the power to a higher volatage to allow the screen to light up

I would suggest that you book the laptop into a reputable PC shop to complete the repair

If this has been useful please leave postive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank You Again

Lcd screen blacks out when i open my laptop up more than 90 degrees. it's a gateway w340UI. Model # MT3707 I'm assuming it's a pinched or stressed wire but I don't know how to dissasemble JUST the screen...


find sticker lugs on screen,remove and you will find screws.before you do this you need take keyboard off as screen cable is attached to motherboard under keyboard.need to remove keyboard first.there are 2 screws connected to the bottom part of laptop.remove as well.
