Question about Gateway MX7515 Notebook
I've run into an odd problem. The backlighting on my Gateway MX7515 dies out after a few seconds once turned on. If I close the cover and re-open it, it'll sometimes turn on, but only lasts for about a second or so before it goes back out. I can still see the screen if I shine extra light onto it, and the computer runs fine aside from that. The thing is, when I leave my laptop unplugged and just running on battery, the screen has no trouble staying on, although it is just slightly dimmer than when the battery would normally be plugged in. But when I plug in the charger and try to use it when the charger's plugged in, the screen goes to its normal brightness but after about 3-4 seconds, the backlight dies out. I don't see why keeping it plugged in would make the backlight die out, but the cpu still charges normally and runs off the external power. Thank you in advance for your help.
