Question about Gateway Computers & Internet

I could hear the computer come on and I see the blue light telling me that it is on but the screen does not come on and the red lights that usually appear is not on. Is it broken? It does not turn on even when it is plugged up.

Try removing the battery and see if will start up with power adapter. The battery may have failed. If it is a couple years old the battery may need replaced.

SOURCE: Screen won't appear upon start up and I get 3 beeps but no screen

3 beeps POST code (power on self test) means RAM problem.
Reseat the RAM module/s and boot up your computer.
If you have two RAM modules, remove them both and insert one at a time to test them, to determine which module is faulty.
If it still doesn't work then replace the RAM module/s

SOURCE: power comes on but screen stays black

The backlight inverter board may be bad, or worst case will be bad lamp. You should look to see if the cable comes off the inverter board first. You may learn maore here:

kp57ws50_57_in_rear_projection_hd_228277.jpg Problem with Sony KP-57WS520 57 in. Rear Projection

This model is really prone to one problem in particular--screen even briefly comes up bright red, green or blue and set shuts down.

15 seconds from turn on front power light should blink as set checks several things internally---if something wrong it does not let picture show.

Usually after shut down or failure power light will blink a sequence of blinks but not always depending on problem.

Did you see the screen at all go red, green, or blue before?

the more you tell me the better I can help

Hi.
Are you able to see a slight image on it at dusk and maybe with the help of a flashlight. since your blue light stays on the video board, may be okay.
If you can hear audio then your problem should be in the inverter board.
It could have bad capacitors or possibly a burned out transistor.
There is a chance one of your bulbs is creating a problem, but you would usually see a flash of the screen if that were the case.
Even though you do have sound the power board could still be the culprit.
Only way to really tell is to open it up.
If you unplug the screen to video board ribbon, you may notice a different effect in the screen lighting.
Should the screen happen to light up all white, then your inverter is okay.
If it looks pinkish or dark or flickers then the bulbs or a bulb may be the issue.
