Question about Gateway CX2618 Notebook
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?
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.
