Question about Gateway Solo 5300 Notebook
My Gateway 5350 laptop has an issue--at first the display would not work and once I took the battery out and repowered based on instructions I saw on this site it did come back up to the desktop-but not a fully stretched only centered (my desktop) then I noticed that when I applied pressure to the bottom left side of the laptop the screen reappeared--I have to keep this pressure on this part where the serial number and part no and FCC ID number is for the display screen to work--I can go into the start menu and programs when applying this pressure --however when I stop the screen goes black again
do you mean to say that your system shuts down when you are not pressing the laptop ie, the power light also goes off when you are not applying the pressure, or just the monitor goes blank and power light is on when there is no pressure
in both the above cases i think you should call technical support for your laptop, because it seems like a hard ware problem
