It is most likely a hardware problem. Try re-booting it. Sure you'll loose all your memory, but at least it will work again. If you go on the manufacturer's website, i am sure it will tell you how to do that.

Hope this helps!

Blank screen when Gateway GM5664 turned on


How do you know your mouse and keyboard work if you have a blank screen?

What motherboard did you put in it? Did you install a video card or using a built in video card? How many beeps? Do you have a spare video card to put in the system and try that?

Blank screen


Try plugging the laptop into an external monitor to make sure the laptop is booting up properly. If it is unplug the monitor from the laptop; or if you know the laptop boots up fine and you get the windows audio when it boots and the initial starting beeps then forget the monitor. Shine a torch or light source on the screen and if you see a faint picture then the inverter on the screen has developed a fault.

Monitor is blank


No.. If this is a video adapter issue, you'll still be having a blank screen and not 'check cable' signal. This might be some internal issue with your monitor. You don't you try connecting it to your laptop (if you have) or your friends' comp. And open the CPU cover and see if the graphics card is proper by giving it a through look. Look if the graphics card fan spins. If it doesn't have a fan, switch off the pc. open the cover remove the gcard from its port carefully and then inspect if for any burnout of loose parts.

If your gcard is fine, i suggest you give your monitor for service..

If the video card is an "onboard type" Is is not easy to replace.If you have a seperate video card, you may replace it with a like type, PCI, AGP,PCIe,etc. or if you computer has an open slot a video card can be added and turn off the "onboard video" in start up screen BIOS .    Since this is a GATEWAY(I do not know the model) computer you also always have the option of a complete restore .
