    Same problem as described. Adj dimmer, nothing. Replaced inverter, nothing. Re-seated connections on new inverter after it was already installed and got one hell of a jolt from it. v2600cto

    I have the same problem. Tried adjusting the dimmer - didn't work. Replaced the inverter - no change - screen still black. I can see the image on the screen if I shine a flashlight on it. Noticed this problem after updating the new Microsoft patches. Still looking for a solution.

Double check your actual keyboard but press the Fn key and I believe it is the F8 key .. I know its Fn key and F7 for dimming .. But there is a icon on the F7 key that is smaller light .. and I believe F8 that is larger light .. Correspondingly dimmer brighter

Would appreciate a fixya for this if this solves your problem

Notbook gateway mc7321u is not runing windows,,,, only turns on the leds

Not Good Juen: If a computer is running ok, never mess with the BIOs as they are critical to the booting of the system. Any interruption during the Update will mess up the instruction sets and cause the computer to go into limo. A responsible technician can overcome the problem, but I doubt if you have the skills to do a fix.

There is not so much that could be done to repair a keyboard. Disassemble the laptop, check the ribbon cable connecting the keyboard to the motherboard. If the ribbon cable is loose, tighten it. If it is tight, replace the keyboard with a new one.

Screen blinking:

first check out if the screen saver is enabled to make your screen black. but if you are using your computer and the screen blinks or turns black there is a loose contact of wire in your computer. bring it to the service center of your notebook and have it fix.

Window's will not load... desperate need of help

Try this, hook up an external monitor to this PC, usually the F8 key allows you to enable the port to extend video to an external monitor, it varies on each PC. Either way try an external monitor see if the image comes up on that. My suspcion is that the Backlight for the LCD monitor is bad and needs repair. Get back to me please. I would like to no... I am pretty certain that is the case here!
