Hello,
My gateway is a 2004 450 ROG and my LCD display is hurting my eyes. I have XP installed. Tried to tweak XP but no luck so far. Not better.

    I increased the pixel size and enabled clear type for XP but the text still looks blurred. It hurts my eyes to read the sceen.

    Gateway 450 problem is still the same. I have checked for display driver updates and they are good. Zooming in or out made little or no differents in the clarity of the screen print.

    I have checked to make sure my display drivers are up to date. They are. Zooming did not help

    What do you mean the display is hurting your eyes? What do you want to change about it?

Are you using sp1? I think that this is the only version of xp that don't support SATA. Then it's time to upgade to sp2 at least.

Gateway laptop 450 rog


be sure to circle through possible screen.
use FN key + a key with a screen symbol on your keyboard (or check your doc) to switch from main screen to external monitor and back.
sometime some techies use external monitor for pc final test and forgot to restore configuration to laptop screen.
At restart XP is expecting the last used monitor and nothing shows on laptop screen.
try also connecting any external monitor to vga plug.
let me know if is fixing

Gateway 450 ROG will run only on battery.


If it's still under warranty, it's definitely worth repairing. If not, get them to quote for the repair they say it needs before agreeing to it. If their quote is anything close to the current price, I would say it's not worth it.

450SX4 GATEWAY NO DISPLAY


Have you tried to replace the backlight lamp, itself? When you say you tried a different LCD, do you mean the barebones LCD panel? Yes, an external monitor should work fine.

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.
