Gateway nv5378u screen does not come on

My computer boots up and nothing comes on the screen. I know it gets to the log on screen because I can put in my password and it accepts it but the screen stays black.

SOURCE: gateway 450 ROG screen does not show or freezes

Hi, The only easy check I can suggest is on the memory. Flip your notebook so that the bottom is facing up. Locate a small panel (with 1 or 2 screws) roughly 3X3in. Inside would be 1 or 2 memory strips held in place by 2 retaining clips, one on each side. Moving the clips slightly away from the memory would free the memory strip and partially spring up. It can now be easily removed. With a pencil eraser, clean/rub on the little gold contacts at the bottom. The slot where they mate with their holder could also be cleaned with an old toothbrush. If the above does not correct the errors, then perhaps you are better off seeking the services of a qualified professional since the unit may have to be opened up and diagnosis performed on its various components. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

SOURCE: when I turn on my computer, the screen stays black

hook up an external monitor to it (old crt monitors are good for something after all) and try pressing the function key and holding it down while pressing each of the F1 through F12 keys (we are trying to switch the display to an external monitor) the one you are looking for has a (O) looking symbol above it.

if that does not work look for a stuck screen closed button switch. that detects when the screen is closed and shuts off the monitor see if its stuck down and try and free it if it is stuck.

you may also try to hold a bright flashlight up to the screen at an angle if you can just make out some details then the screens back light is out. and will need to be replaced.

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:

I can't get my laptop to boot up.


It sounds like your Explorer.exe is corrupted or missing. when you see your desktop wallpaper then you can try to open task manager my pressing Ctrl+Altr+Delete keys all at a time and now click "new task" and type Explorer.exe and press enter. if your Explorer is OK then your icon and other thing should land up if not then restart computer and try to open computer in safe mood by pressing F8, if you can open then try restoring your computer to earlier date by going to start----program---accessories----system tools -----system restore.

Problem logging on to Gateway profile 3


it sounds like it is booting to a network... unless this is normal you need to change the order the computer boots.... f12 i believe is the right key to tap on as it is booting up.... have it boot directly to the hard drive... unless of course you require it to boot to a network
