Why is my Gateway 4028GZ screen black

The display on this laptop is backlit. What that means, in a nutshell, is that the image on the display prevents the output from a constant light source (the back light) from showing through, thus giving a usable image on the screen. From your description, the backlight is no longer operating. This can be an issue with the LCD display panel, the backlight power module, our (less likely) a power trace on the motherboard. Repair would likely cost as much or more than replacing with a used laptop and just transferring your hard drive. If you choose to replace and swap hard drives make certain that the interface on the new laptop is the same as your Gateway's.

I have a Gateway 450ROG with very dim video on the display, I can hook up an external monitor and the video on the external monitor is fine but still very dimvideo on the monitor of the laptop. You can...

Hello !

Since an external monitor works, it is the display's backlight or inverter board.

If you were experiencing discoloration in the screen (pinkish lower light hues) before it failed, that would indicate a CCFL backlight issue. If the screen suddenly went dim on you rather than a slow degradation the inverter would be indicated.

In either case, a technician in your area should be able to help. Evaluate to see if the repair is cost-effective.

Hope this helps.

I am looking for the power adapter for my model L17M103 TV. Where can i get one.

All you have to do is to read the specifications on the present one and get an exact duplicate one from any of the electronics store. Even Best Buy or Fry's would have them readily available.

Dim screen

If its very dark and you can barely see anything its probably a bad back-light. I'd suggest to take it to your local Best Buy. And yes, they can look up PSP#'s with your credit card, but even easier by telephone number.
