    I checked everything already, and your not going to believe this, but it just came back on. So maybe not the LCD display? Now it just went out.

    gateway mt6707, screen is very dark. everything seems to work when connected to external monitor.

    Any suggestions other than a new screen?

    Same problem here. The laptop will power on and LEDS light but the screen remains dark. I plugged in an external monitor and then both the external monitor and laptop LCD worked. I unplugged the external monitor and it would power up and down and everything worked fine. After a while the screen went dark again and won't come on.

My laptop screen went very dark, I can barely make out whats on the screen but I know its working. What can I do to fix this situation on my gateway p-6860fx pc notebook?


Hi josue fernan...
You need to see if your laptop lcd screen is faulty and/or the lcd inverer is faulty.
1....Test the lcd screen:
Hook your laptop to an outside monitor and then start your laptop normally...if the picture on the external monitor is good, then your lcd screen is bad.
2....Backlight Faulty: If the monitor is still as dark like your lcd screen on the laptop then it could be the backlight that is faulty.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

You can restore the computer back to factory default,to do so, follow the below steps:
Turn Off the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction. NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.

If the above mentioned steps are not working then you need an RCD to do so. Contact the Gateway support.

My Gateway mt6707 laptop gets dark when I unplug it. Do I need to get a more powerful battery?


Hi

Thank you for your query

No this doesnt have anything to do with your battery.

As you can appreicate the your screen needs alot of power so when plugged in there is a continuous source of power so its very bright, however as your battery has only a limited charge, the screen will go dark to conserve

There are 2 ways of changing this

1) Press the fn key + the key with a sun symbol on there this is usually the up arrow key or the right arrow key, but will will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer

2) Click Start> Control Panel>Power options
Inside here you will be able to set what type of power profile you want running on Plug and battery

Gateway Notebook ML6721 going back and forth between battery & AC


the socket where the cord plugs into the back of the laptop gets wattered out and does not make a good connection when it gets this way. I suggest that not move it so much it kinda defeats the purpose of a laptop. though

Hello my mt6707 notebook


Your back light went out if you can see a faint display on the screen... Is there a post beep?
If not I suggest:
Unplug and remove battery
Take RAM out
Let it sit for 15-20 minutes
Try again.
If this doesn't work try different RAM
