Hook an external monitor up to the laptop .. if the line is on the monitor then you have a video card problem .. if it isn't .. then you have an LCD problem

A blacked-out screen doesn't necessarily indicate a broken monitor.
If the computer has run out of charge or is in hibernation or sleep mode,


if the screen is too dark, or if the display cable has come disconnected from the motherboard, the screen may appear black or fail to turn on.


To fix a blacked-out laptop screen, troubleshoot the screen settings, check the LCD connector and see if the computer is awake and receiving power.


Touch the touchpad or move the external mouse to see if the computer is asleep or hibernating. If the computer fails to respond, press "Enter" on the keyboard.


Press the power button if the screen remains black.

Confirm that the power indicator light, found at the front of the computer or above the keyboard, is glowing solid green or blue.


Confirm that the power adapter is plugged into the computer and into a wall outlet. Confirm that battery indicator light is glowing solid green or blue.


Hold down the "Fn" key. Press the up-arrow to see if the screen brightness increases.
Some computers also use the "F6" or "F7" keys to increase screen brightness.


Hold down the power button for 10 seconds to turn off the laptop.
Remove the AC adapter from the computer, close the screen, and then turn the PC over.


Slide the battery latch to eject the battery. Pull the battery out of its compartment.


Turn the computer back over, open the lid, and insert the edge of a flathead screwdriver or other flat, solid object beneath the bezel above the keyboard.


Wedge the edge of the keyboard bezel off of the top cover.
Work your way along the edge of the keyboard bezel to loosen it.
Pull the bezel off the laptop.


Trace the cable coming from the laptop screen to the connector found beneath the bezel. Reconnect the display cable to the motherboard if the cable has come loose from the connector.

Line up the tabs on the bezel with the slots along the top of the keyboard. Insert the right edge of the bezel into the gap above the keyboard, and then push the bezel back in place.


Turn the computer back on. If the laptop screen is still blacked out, connect an external monitor to the video port on the side of the PC to confirm that the video card isn't defective.

If the external monitor works, the LCD screen could be broken.

If the monitor doesn't work, the motherboard or video card might need to be replaced.


Hope this helps

Hardware failure of either the LCD screen or, most likely, the video chip. To find out which just boot from a Linux Live-cd like

If it behaves the same then it's surely the chip. Since it's part of the motherboard the entire board will have to be replaced - this is going to be very complicated and expensive job, you will have to take it to a repair shop.

Hi,

It looks like that the ribbon cable connected on the logicboard to your screen is the one that is causing the issue. What you should do is to have it checked by the manufacturer (Gateway) if it still has warranty and if it doesn't have you should take it to a nearest service center that would be able to open the computer and check if the ribbon is loose or damage.

Computer freeze


The blue screen. Recreate the problem.. there should be something along the lines of a description across the top of the screen that says some technical information.

If you want.. just type the stop code.. for example Stop 0x000000.. (just an example) If you ANYthing that has a files name.. like blahblah.drv or blah blah.dll... type everything in on that line here.

The problem is most likely..
A bad driver in windows
A faulty printer
A faulty USB cable
A broken usb connector on your laptop that has a short.

but the most likely is a faulty driver.
Try downloading the latest driver from the manufacturer's website.

Screen as lines coming down screen of my toshiba satellite laptop


Boot the computer in BIOS and if you sill have lines than the LCD is leaking.

To boot to BIOS tap "F2" OR "F10", multiple times as soon as you hit the power button to turn on the computer/
