SOURCE: Black screen

After last night and we could not get it to go I had an other look around the net and found that if I download a bios for the mother board and put it on a flash drive and booted it off the flash drive so that the bios updated I got the netbook to work again. I quickly then did a back up of all the files. Thank you for your help last night.

SOURCE: When I turn on my netbook the screen is black

You can try check if you have any special function keys on your computer that allow you to disable the screen image or simply put it to another output port. Just like you would do if you would like to connect you pc to and external video projector.
I had similar problem with my netbook, and on my case a BIOS update solved the problem.

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to identify the fault and possible fix :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3598095-faulty_laptop_lcd_screen

My screen on my gateway netbook has a small crack in it that caused the whole screen to turn black. Will I be able to fix it or should I buy a new one?


If your comfortable opening up the laptop, and either have done it before, or know someone who has and is willing to help you, yes you can replace the LCD screen in the netbook.
If not, your best solution would be to take it to a technician or repair shop, or, if financially viable, buy a new one, and swap out the harddrives to that your new machine has all of the information of the old one on it.

When i turn on my gateway nv52 the screen is black and white with horizontal lines. i can plug my laptop into an external monitor and it is fine so it has to be something with my video cable or monitor. ...


First things first simpers,your netbook might have a "hotkey" combination that toggles between external monitor and your screen .On my netbook iits Fn/F5 but yours might be different. Goto your manufactures site to find out the exact "hotkey" function.
Good Luck

When I turn on my netbook, the screen stays black. Nothing appears.


1. Check your power cord & adapter.
2. If its working then check the battery, reseat the battery & check.
3. If available then check with another battery
4. If no, then remove the battery & switch on the PC in AC mode.
5. Check if battery charging indication or AC power on indication is glowing. if not then need to change ur motherboard.
6. If indication is OK, but could not power ON then check ur RAM for any loose connection or dust. clean & reinstall.
7. If still no display, connect an external monitor, check if display is comming.
8. If Display is coming then your LCD need to replace.

My gateway lt2016u netbook fell and now the screen is messed up. how do I fix this?


You will need a razor blade.

Where the black flat part of your screen meets the silver outlining there is a crease. Take the razor blade and slide it through the **** all the way around the screen. You might need to pull up on the black flat part with the razor blade to get it to unsnap. Then inside you will see the screen and a bunck of screws. Unscrew all the BLACK screws. Then pull the scrren forward. It will be screwed in on a metal rod on both sides. On the side of the metal rods will be some screws. Unscrew theses screws, then the screen will come out. You are not finished yet. The screen will be hook up to a a chord in on its back. Unplug the end that is hooked directly into the screen. You may need to take some tape off in the process. Then do the reverse steps with a new screen.
