Gateway 450 ROG Dispaly

When I power up my laptop, half of the screen is white/green and there is a line leading from the white area down to a corner of the screen. It looks almost like the screen is broken, but it's not! The other half of the screen is fine. Help!!!

Turn wireless on


The router or 2-in-one (router/modem combo), must be set up
through your Internet Service Provider and connected with either a DSL line or
Cable.

Since most Acer laptops have built-in wireless, no
additional hardware is required.

Turn on the laptop.

Move the switch located on the front of the laptop to the
right, then let go.


The switch will go back to its original position.





Confirm that the wireless networking icon has appeared on
the screen.

Right-click the wireless icon in the bottom right corner.

In Windows 7 this will resemble a small stair-step triangle;
In Vista it looks like a tiny monitor.

Click "View available wireless networks."


It might also say "Open network and sharing
center."

Wait while the adapter finds your wireless network.


Click to highlight the network and click the
"Connect" button.

Enter the security password that you created when setting up
the router (if applicable).


If you don't know or can't remember, log in to the gateway
page specified in the user's guide.

Locate the "Wireless security" settings page to
see if security is enabled.


If it is, type in a new key and enter the same
number for the wireless network.

There is no display on monitor but monitor is ok


WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.

http://www.kitchentablecomputers.com/static.php - rules


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.



Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they might be faulty


if its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail


make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty


even something as small as a faulty electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems

computers need all power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error


make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket

if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free


restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard

Hope this helps

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

My hp zx5000 back light does not light


Real easy solution please note when your laptop is open there is a little white plastic stem type switch (micro-switch). This switch controls the back light, when the computer screen is lifted into the operation view (user view) the switch provides power to the screen.

Easy fix as long as the back light works just SOFTLY push the white stem down several times. This should clean off the dust which probably got under the micro-switch.
If this doesn't work then your back light needs to be replaced!

Bottom half of laptop screen is colors with white lines vertically. Was able to control by changing position of screen, no lnger able to do that. Thin k Pad Lenovo T60


Hi,

Try to hook up an external monitor just to check that it is not a problem with the video card of the laptop. Most likely the LCD cable is loose or the LCD inverter needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps.

Inspiron 1150 lines on screeN problem.


Connect an external monitor to the laptop and see if it also has the vertical lines. If the external monitor looks fine, then your laptop’s LCD display panel is bad. If the monitor has the vertical lines displayed on it, then your graphics card or motherboard is bad.

Gateway Laptop M305CRV


I have not worked on your model before but have done many laptops. be sure the part you have is correct. get some small screwdrivers, as you disassemble it, lay the screw around it where they came out. some times case screw are hidden under stickers on the bottom. (nice hu?) be VERY careful with the data/ribbon cable (probably dark gold in color)
