If you are familier with opening your laptop up, check the following: the monitor connector cable has not come loose, if this is connected securely, I would advise that you take your laptop into your local PC repairs shop to show them exactly what is happening...they will be able to diagnose the fault with a very short space of time.

Also: when you turn on the laptop, do you get any images, writing on it at all, ie, the boot up screen, does it appear? If so, and you get nothing else after the post up screen, you have a problem with the onboard graphics card.

If you do not get anything at all when you press the on button and everything seems to be working ok except you just have a black screen, there is a 99% chance that the actual screen has gone, in which case you will need to have the screen replaced. This can be a costly repair and it sometimes is not economically logical to replace the screen as the cost would be sometime greater than actually going out and buying a new laptop!

Hope this help

Dim screen

sounds like your backlight inverter or lamp has failed. It is worth fixing if you can find someone to do it for a reasonable price. It isn't something I would recommend trying yourself unless you have laptop repair experience. If you just want to purchase a new laptop, you can put your old one on Ebay or Craigslist. I can assure you someone will buy it as is.

Upgrade video card or increase video memory on a gateway NV53a

Unfortunately, there isn't any way to increase the video performance of this model. Only very few laptops have interchangeable video cards and this isn't one of them, sadly. Video RAM can sometimes be increased in the BIOS by hitting F2 when the computer is first starting up (during the Gateway screen) and fiddling around with that, but it's probably a long shot because usually only enthusiast laptops have that function.

there is a socket in your laptop in a D shape with 15 pin. Connect a PC monitor in that terminal and turn on your laptop if you can see you desktop on that monitor then your video card isn't working or your lcd screen isn´t working anymore.

Screen does not work droped labtop but computer still works can i get a placed screen

Yes. You should first disassemble the screen and look for the part number on the back side of the LCD. You must take great care not to damage the LCD bezel. Some of the screws may be covered by rubber bumpers. Then you can order one from EBay. Replacement isn't hard.
