Question about Gateway MX6453 Notebook

1 Answer

Broken screen My son stepped on the top of his lap top and the screen is damaged. Half of the screen looks fine the other half not. Is it worth getting it repaired because everything else seems to be working fine. The non-experts I ask said it would probably cost more to have it fixed than buying a new one. Thanks, Tom

Dear burke833,
You can easily buy one off of ebay install it yourself and fixing it. Just search on ebay how to open and replace a laptop screen. It would cost much MUCH less to fix it yourself for a 15.4" inch screen would cost around $80. Hope this helps!

Half screen


Sounds like a faulty screen, has the laptop been dropped or physically damaged? can you only see half of the screen? if the other half is black and one half "fuzzy" it's most likely that the liquid crystal display has been cracked/broken. The only way to resolve this problem is usually by replacing the screen which in some cases can be as expensive as a new computer :(

Toshiba lap top half screen rainbow lines


Sounds like the screen is going bad. Isolate the problem by plugging an external monitor to the laptop. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker to plug to the laptop. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If the Borrowed monitor does not show the rainbow lines, that proves your video card is ok and the problem is your lcd screen. If the borrowed monitor shows the same rainbow lines it means your video card inside the computer has the issue.

The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

Is it worth to buy part for screen for laptop or it can be fix? Plms with laptop is when i put laptop down n screen dropped half n top half is blanks n bottom half is blurring can see half of it.... help


The screen replacement is not cheap, hook a spare monitor to the video output usually on the back, if okay! the LCD screen is bad and must be replaced, if symptom is the same for both, it is the Video Graphics Card that is the problem normally built into the motherboard, If the laptop is a few years old I would opt to replace it.

Screen wont work Toshiba Satellite L555


It is sure that the screen/LCD panel is damaged and there is no option but to replace the whole unit.
If you are lucky check out on service shops for a scrapped L555 due to a mother board failure which would be reasonable.

I have virtical lines on lap top


Once you start to get vertical lines on your LCD screen, it's usually time for a new screen. I would check first by running an external monitor just to be sure it's not the video card.

My laptop, an Acer Aspire 5715z, has a big ol' white patch on it with a smaller one at the top of the white one. It covers about half of the screen, and it has blue around the start of the white line.


Oh okay. Your screen is physically cracked. Its broken, its going to need to be replaced. Thats why a part of the screen is coming and then you see splotches on the screen. Looks like somebody hit directly with something or stepped on it. If you turn the laptop off and shine a light on it, you might be able to see where the crack originated.

In the meantime until you get another lcd screen, you can hook up an external monitor to the laptop and use it like that for now.
