Hi!

I compared them, the on you have is a good laptop, the one you consider to by is not.
The one you have has on mobile prosessor 2,7ghz, the 450 has an pentium4, that will get that laptop warmer and it will consume mote electricity

The 7320 have 512mb ram and you can upgrade it to 1,5gb ram if you want. The 450 have 512mb ram and thats the maximum it can have.

The 7320 has an 15.4 in TFT active matrix 1280 x 800 ( WXGA ) screen. The 450 has 14.1 in TFT active matrix 1024 x 768 screen.

The 7320 has Intel Extreme Graphics 2 Shared video memory . The 450 has ATI Mobility Radeon M6-P 32.0 MB

In my opinion, the only thing thats better on the 450 is the videocard, and that just a little bit better.

So my advice is..DONT buy that 450, there are better laptops out there for a good price.

I hope the info i gave you helped
If you have further questions, just ask me and i will do my best to help you

Good luck
Nic

Gateway support site for starters, and then Windows Update, and finally look up components in hardware/Device mgr. Go to the mfrs websites and download the most current ones for your hardware and operating system. If you have an Intel processor, Intel's site "Support" will scan and determine the newest Intel drivers for you. NVidia and AMD's ATI also have drivers. Realtek also provides them for their products.

I have a gateway 450sx4 laptop...im having a problem with my screen. When i turn it on, you can't see anything...i've even tried conneting a monitor and still don't see anything...what else could it be???...


You can try 2 things: 1. Start in safe mode ( start tapping f8 when you start) and see if that works. If it is ok try to update-or reinstall- drivers for your video card. 2. Reinstall OS-whatever you have.If that failed-your video card is probably out.

you can pick this component up in many electrical specialist shops or even try to ascertain the exact replacement part from the manufacturer.Try to measure its dimensions so the replacement will be a correct and easy fit.

Yea i have a gateway 450sx4 laptop and when i turn it on it stays black for a while and when the screen finally turns on it blurry and its different colors and it just shows lines how can i fix this?


It's likely that your screen is "fried" (faulty) ... try to connect your laptop to an external VGA monitor, and see if the screen shows up (on the external monitor) properly. You may have to toggle the output display (device) from computer screen to external monitor ..using Fn+F3.
If it displays on your external monitor properly, it means your laptop screen is no good. You can replace the laptop screen, or just continue to use the external monitor.
If it does the same (blurry & different color, etc.) on your external monitor, then, your video card/module on your laptop is bad. This usually happens less often.

I want to disassemble Gateway 450SX4


Nowhere: Only HP and IBM and DeLL offer parts schematics for their laptops. But if you take a look at some of those,you'll have a really good idea how to work on your Gateway,because they're all very similar.

450SX4 GATEWAY NO DISPLAY


Have you tried to replace the backlight lamp, itself? When you say you tried a different LCD, do you mean the barebones LCD panel? Yes, an external monitor should work fine.
