Question about Gateway MX6956 Notebook
I had tried searching all previous post and can't find a similiar problem that I face. Can anyone help? Thanks a lot.
I am using Toshiba Sattelite 1410 series, using Windows XP Home Edition. I had tried reformat but that didn't solve the problem. Below explain the situation of the problem:
After I switch on my laptop, it succesful load on the normal window screen. No problem in viewing the screen from till the window XP desktop screen load.
This is where the problem start, the time of the screen goes blank vary (nothing to do with standby or power save setting as I change all the setting so that the screen is on all the time, also no screen saver) - most of the time within few minute the screen just goes blank. The strangest thing is occasionly I can view the screen without any problem for hours (rare) after I start up.
When I plug in an external monitor, it has no problem for the display on the external monitor.
There is another strangest thing to which I don't understand the most, whether I continue to use my external monitor to work or I just leave the laptop screen goes blank for a while, let say 15 minutes (again time vary), I then press fn + f5 to switch between screen mode. Poof the display come back on the laptop screen, however this may or may not stay on for long, it can switch back to blank again in few minutes.
It is much appreciated if someone can help to solve the mystery for me.
Thanks!!! I have a Gateway 1.6 Intel Core Duo laptop. My screen works just fine most of the time. But at random occasions (about every 15 minutes) the screen blinks. And at other times the screen just goes completely blank (about 3 times a week). 95% of those times it turns completely black. But once it was all orange, and an other time it went all blue.
The only solutions for this I found was to connect an external monitor and press Fn F4 to switch to the external monitor, and then switch back with Fn F4. By doing this the screen then restored itself, and everything is good again.
Resetting my computor also solved the problem.
This problem occurs always at different times.
What's wrong? Is something disconnected or shorted on my video card? Is this some driver problem? Kaspersky hasn't found any viruses and Resgistry cleaner has been run a few times.
How can I resolve this issue?
Unplug everything from your laptop unplug the power from the laptop close it and turn it over remover the battery open and hold the on button(battery is still removed) for a 10 count, replace the battery
turn on you can plug the power cord if needed the prob. should be fixed
