Gateway M275 display scambles


I suspect it may be a problem with the video cable coming from the convertible tablet, up through the hinged support for the LCD screen, AND/OR the screen Inverter.

I would like you to connect a VGA monitor, to the VGA port on the back of the convertible tablet. The VGA monitor will now be an External Monitor.

[ Looking at the rear of the convertible tablet, start at the Left side.
Vent, USB port, Monitor port. The Monitor port is the VGA port ]

The VGA monitor can be a CRT type, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor with a VGA cable.

Notebook OFF, monitor OFF, connect the VGA monitor to the M275's VGA connector. (Port)
Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type, allow it to warm up.

Turn the notebook on.
By the factory default settings, whatever is shown on the convertible tablet's internal monitor, should now be shown on the external monitor.
(VGA monitor)

If not, press, and hold down on the Fn key (On the bottom row of the Keyboard, all the way to the Left), and tap once on the F3 key.
(Top row of Function keys. The F3 key is the Display Toggle-Over Key )

No graphics shown on the external monitor? Hold down on the Fn key again, and tap the F3 key again.
There are at least three options available;

1) Convertible tablet's internal monitor - ONLY
2) Convertible tablet, AND external monitor
3) External monitor - ONLY

If graphics are fine on the external monitor, you have a problem with the video cable, and/or the screen Inverter. At this time we will bypass the LCD screen, and come back to it.

At the bottom/middle of the tablet's LCD screen, is the Hinge. The Hinge Cover is 'T shaped', and has one single Philips screw holding it on.
If you remove the screw, and the Hinge Cover, you will see two wire harnesses.
One Black, the other White.

See that these two cables are plugged in tightly to the connector.

After checking this step come back in a Comment, and state your findings.

How do I fix the top layer of glass on the screen?


The lcd would have to be replaced the glass is part of that. On a normal laptop thats about $150 and up. On yours you will pay more as it includes the digitizer for the pen etc. Figure about $170 and up for used parts. You will probably have to get someone to swap the parts for you so figure on an hours labour (should be less). If you talk to gateway they will smile , call it user abuse, and then ask you to empty your wallet.

The parts can be located by searching for Gateway M275 Tablet Parts using google or bing or any search engine. You should find several sources so you can shop around and get the best deal as far as price and shipping. You are going to have to find a tech to replace it unless you can do it yourself. It really isn;t that hard and involves about 4 screws. The hardest part (seriously) is getting the case split. When your are looking for the parts keep an eye out for instructions. A lot of the parts places will have instructions or videos of how to do the job.

When I turn on M275 I get power light, hard drive


I have the same M275 tablet and was looking for a solution when I came across your post. I couldn't find a solution so I went over every nook and cranny of my tablet and found my hard drive was not completely pushed in. I pushed it in tried the power button again and it worked! I am shocked because my laptop has been down for a year now. I thought maybe it was a motherboard problem and it was junk. I'm so excited. Anyway all I can suggest is check that the hard drive on the right side is completely plugged/pushed in. I hope that works for you.

Will not start up after system recovery done with disks.


If you have a Windows XP or Windows Vista CD (or if you can borrow one), insert it into the CD Drive and restart the system. Boot from the CD, and choose the "R" for Repair console.

Log onto the Windows installation you want to repair.

At the prompt, type FIXMBR and answer yes.

Type exit.

Broken screen hinge/collar


You can purchase replacement hinges and hinge covers here: http://www.mundocorp.com/m275.html They may be a bit of work to replace. But short of replacing the hinge assembly, it doesn't sound like that is going to move.
