Gateway 450ROG laptop turing on and off

My husband installed a new screen assembly for my laptop and now it doesn't stay on unless you tilt the base a certain way. He has done this a few different times with other laptops we have had and never had a problem before. Any suggestions on why this might be doing this? He has checked for anything that may be pinched, etc.

Thanks much!!!!!!

    Thank yo for replying. He said he has already checked the connection to the system board twice. He will check the cable on the back of the screen next. Thank you!

    Thanks Joe, he fixed it by finding one of the little screws on the bottom of the laptop base was not tightened all the way.



    We appreiciate your help though!

    tell him to check the cable on the back of the screen, it may not be connected all the way. Also, he can check the connection to the system board.

Can't access gateway 450rog wireless! Is there a toggle? Do I need to install a driver?


Yes, the wireless adapter needs a driver, but unless you deleted it, that is not the problem
The wireless function can be turned on and off by a Fn and special function key combo. Some laptops even have a switch on the front of the palm rest that turns the wireless on.
Once the wireless function has been turned on, you will be able to see networks in the area.

I reinstalled winxp sp3 on a gateway 450 rog. I was able to install all the drivers except the network controller and it also won't recognize the wireless adapter, any thoughts or ideas?


I had the same problem.
The "Network Controller" in my case had to do with the wireless network driver on my 450ROG.
None of the drivers that are available for 450ROG on the Gateway Support site worked correctly.
Here's what I did to solve the problem:
1. Flip the computer over. 2. On the back, you may see a little module that says "Fitted with Intel WM3B2100 802.11b". That's the built-in wireless network card (had no idea this computer had one, I inherited it). 3. Go to the Intel support site:http://downloadcenter.intel.com/ 4. Do a search for the "WM3B2100" driver. 5. Download and install the driver.
Fixed it for me!
Full info about the Gateway 450ROG is available at: http://support.gateway.com/s/Mobile/Gateway/450ROG/3501353sp66.shtml This helped get me on the right track.

You must go through the safe mode and uninstall your graphics driver and install another one, may be you will find more compatible driver with your graphics card and your windows copy on gateway website.

Gateway 450ROG audio stopped working after connecting to TV


Go into Start / control panel / sounds / and see if any drivers are showing, if not then re-install, Go to vendors site to download driver for your laptop.

Just remembered little tip, can you see the speaker at lower right of screen, if not driver may not be there especially if it was before.

MY GATEWAY LAPTOP SCREEN WENT BLACK AFTER 20 MIN OR MORE


I'm betting that you need a new "Inverter" board, especially if it's a Gateway 450ROG.
There is an inverter that Gateway used in several models that has a known defect.
Inverters are relatively inexpensive ,and easy to replace. You could ven do it yourself if you have a little skill at disassembly / re-assembly. Tell me the model number of your laptop and I can help you more

Gateway laptop wont display my desktop -screen is black


Does backlight stay on, or does it look like the screen is turned off? If it looks like it is turned off, can you look extremely closely and see your desktop if held in good light?

Gateway 450ROG notebook repair


I would personally say that it was the motherboard, but it would be impossible to guareente that unless an inspection was carried out.

The support I could offer if you wanted me to take a look would be for you to send the laptop and power cables to us, we would take a look. If we cant fix it we will return it to you with no charges. If it can be fixed you would be informed of the cost before we go ahead and do it.

Please note that you will have to pay for the delivery to us in any case.

Without a visual inspection it would be impossible to say. But it does sound like you will almost certainly need a new motherboard.
