Gateway PC Notebook/Tablet Model: CX2618 Monitor Replacement

Hello Technical Suport,

I'm looking for instructions on how to replace the monitor screen. I have one good notebook with a bad screen. Another that has multiple issues. So, I would like to take the screen from the one and replace it with the other one that will make a complete usuable notebook/tablet.

The currently monitor screen is dark and unviewable 98% of the time. I have temporarily attached a CRT monitor to the notebook. Therefore, I know all other parts are working properly.... simple a monitor screen that has gone bad. Can you help me?

Thank you,
Steve

First shine a flashlight on the screen. if you can see a very faint image on the screen the problem is the backlight. If not... it could be a few other problems, first test if it works on an external monitor. If it can then you need to cleear the CMOS. to do this you unplug the cord remove the battery and hold down the ON button for 30-60 seconds, then turn it on. If it does not work on the external monitor it is probally because you have a bad video card and need to replace it.

Where can I purchase a replacement remote control for tv in WA


Exact OEM replacement remote you can try the manufacturer or www.replacementremotes.com. No store will carry what you are looking for, but you can find universal remotes in any electronic store on the planet. Wal-mart, RadioShack, BestBuy, etc. Whatever is closest to your location. Good rule of thumb is if they sell TVs, they sell universal remotes.

Hide file folder WITH A password


For the most part you need 3rd party software, or a USB drive with security built in. Just remember you are at the mercy of those companies if you lose the password. Plus some software will only works locally. For instance if someone removes the drive and connects it to another computer the files are wide open.
Win 7 Ult and Ent (high end editions have Bitlocker built in.
A simple way is to create a folder within his login account docs and choose hidden as the properties. The only way to see it would be to change folder properties and make hidden files visible. This is just cloaking, because anybody with admin rights can see them.
