Have you updated a Graphic driver? Does it Dim on battery and AC? Look at power settings. Control Panel, Power. You could Rool-Back the graphic driver to see if that changes the problem. A Gateway mt6841 has Windows XP OS, right?

Bad motherboard.  A new one is about $300 but it eventually will fail again as I am currently researching this issue and seeing many complaints of this nature.  People have replaced the motherboard many times and came across the same issue.  I am working in one for a friend am going to recommend he junk it.

How do I replace the f1 fuse in my gateway 7326


Will it boot? Fan spin? LED's blink? Sound? Try connecting to a external monitor, does it show desktop? The screen is all black, no cursor at top left? No "ghost Image" in the screen when viewed in a bright light? I would look at the inverter board, backlighting, ribbon cable in the rear of the monitor, the LCD screen, your laptop has some miles on it. Not sure about a fuse on a laptop motherboard, don't see that often. Take a look at this may help you troubleshoot: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Yi6GNFcP3w

Hp zt1180 monitor went very dark


Some laptops have a brightness setting in the BIOS, some have a specific button, and some have a configuration program. If you cannot see the screen in a darkened room, your CCFL backlights are not working. Cold Cathode Fluorescent bulbs are tubes along the sides of the display, or top/bottom that light up the screen. If they are not lighting at all, or you can see that only part of the screen is lit, send it back and ask for a replacement or repair. This is assuming it is still under warranty...
If not, prepare to spend some bucks.
