Question about Gateway 450ROG Notebook
My gateway M-6834 apparently has no problems at start up, there's the sound of windos vista and the hard drive light shows "normal" activity. However displays a very (almost unperceptible) image. I can hardly see the desktop screen (just some elements actually), but not the mouse pointer either. Any advice you can share with me about how to pinpoint the problem and its possible solution? Thank you very much in advance guys.
Your display backlight is not working, so even though the display is working you can only see it very dimly. The usual cause is failure of the inverter, a small circuit board inside the display that makes power for the backlight. It's also possible the backlight itself has failed, but the inverter is much more likely. Changing the board is not difficult, it just has a couple of cables that plug in. The bigger problem is usually finding a replacement, and then getting the display open. There are several online sources for replacement inverters, and they usually offer instructions for your particular computer. Use Google or your own favorite search engine to look for "<insert computer model here> inverter" and you'll probably find one.
