Question about Gateway 7330GZ Notebook
Is it expensive to fix and can I do it myself if a novice?
Backlights are not generally expensive but I wouldn't suggest you repair it yourself unless you've opened up pc's before....you'll need a service repair manual to do it yourself as, at the very least, you'll have to remove the screen bezel (usually 4 screws) and then detach the screen from the hinges (again usually 4 screws).
I would suggest getting a couple of quotes from repair centres.
As far as backlight goes it either works or doesn't (like a light bulb) sporadic use usually means a bad connection rather than a blown light but it would still need to be opened up to check the connections...again needing a service manual and a technical person
