Now my screen says gateway very dim and goes black


The screen on your laptop computer is the primary graphical interface that allows you to interact with your Gateway laptop computer. The screen is connected to your computer through video cables located within the base of the laptop. If your laptop will boot up but the screen remains black, it is likely the video or power cable on your Gateway laptop has somehow become disconnected. Reconnecting laptop hardware is a very difficult operation and is not recommended for anyone that is not familiar with computer hardware.

Remove the faceplate of your old laptop by removing the plastic hinges located on the sides of the base. The hinges can usually be removed with your fingers. Open the latches that secure the keyboard to your laptop. Some laptops use screws to secure the keyboard; remove these if necessary and unplug the connector. If you are having trouble finding the screws on your laptop, they are normally located near the corners. Unscrew the screws that connect your laptop screen to its base. The screws will be located near the bottom of the screen's base. Reconnect the video cable and power cord that connect your screen to your laptop and make sure they are firmly connected. Reassemble your laptop to complete the operation.

How do I replace the f1 fuse in my gateway 7326


Will it boot? Fan spin? LED's blink? Sound? Try connecting to a external monitor, does it show desktop? The screen is all black, no cursor at top left? No "ghost Image" in the screen when viewed in a bright light? I would look at the inverter board, backlighting, ribbon cable in the rear of the monitor, the LCD screen, your laptop has some miles on it. Not sure about a fuse on a laptop motherboard, don't see that often. Take a look at this may help you troubleshoot: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Yi6GNFcP3w

Where do the two wires for the screen go on a gateway laptop model number w340ua?


I'm pretty sure they go on the screen and into the motherboard someplace.

Just look at the old wires that are already on the screen. Normally there is a connection at the top of the screen, but it's more like a cable than a wire. And at the bottom of the screen a wire that plugs into the LCD Inverter.

Now the Wireless or Wifi wires sometimes run from the screen down through the motherboard and into the wireless card. Sometimes the wireless card is on the bottom of the laptop, sometimes under the keyboard.

Also I've seen webcam wires run from the screen area.

I would like a manual so that i may use my new computer, i am on a friends computer


I'm not aware of a Gateway NV500 Series line, of Notebook PC's.
I would like you to look on the bottom of your Gateway laptop, for the exact model number.

Are you referring to the Gateway NV5207U?
It's part of the Gateway NV50 Series. (One of the one's sold at Bestbuy?)

While I wait on the exact model number, let me give you the page for the User Manual for the NV52 Series.

Never mind! 17.79MB's of anything but where the Power On button is, and what the basic parts of the laptop are!
Sheesh!

Here is the page to download the Gateway NV50 Series User Reference Guide,

http://support.gateway.com/s/notebook/2009/gateway/nv/nv52/NV52ul.shtml

On this page scroll down to - Gateway NV50 Series Reference Guide - English, and Left-click on it.
This is a PDF file download. (The computer you are on now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files)

It takes a few seconds to see the first page. It takes an additional 24 seconds or so, to fully download the file.
I advise letting the file fully download before looking through it. Otherwise you might break the download connection.
The first page is solid Black. The second page is solid White.

Should you not be aware of how to use a PDF file, and/or, want to burn off a copy to your computer, come back, and state so.

This reference guide shows the basic views of the laptop, the various function buttons, all about the Keyboard, and other details.

On this same Gateway Support page, is the Gateway Quick Start for Windows 7. It's listed at the bottom.

The Power On button is on the Right side of the laptop.
It's in the round hinge for the LCD screen.

The symbol on it is an international one. It's a circle with a line coming part way into the top. The top middle of the circle.

This is a video on Youtube, showing a user un-boxing his Gateway NV5207u. I included it to show more of where the Power On button is, and also that there is an Enable/Disable button for the Touchpad.

Would be kind of perplexing also, if you went to use the laptop, and couldn't get the Touchpad to work.

Once I have the exact model number we can proceed forward, if the Gateway NV5207u is not the laptop in question.

Can i replace my Gateway laptop tft screen with a new lcd screen?


The screen resolution is a combo of:
  1. the screen's capability
  2. the video card's capability
  3. the driver's settings
If the above screen is made for this laptop (as it appears to be), then the settings you had should still be there.

My screen on my NEW gateway laptop has cracked and spidered down the ENTIRE screen so I can no long use it..I have only had this laptop for A MONTH AND A HALF! No one at gateway will help with this...


You or someone who has had the laptop has obviously dropped the laptop or sat something heavy on top of the laptop there is no way the would randomly happen.

How toeplace laptop screen on gateway mt 6821


I replaced the screen on my gateway laptop a couple of months ago.  I found a video on this by searching youtube.  It turns out that there is not a lot of difference between the insides of latops at similar price points, so even though I have a gateway and the instructions were for a dell I believe they were general enough that the biggest problem I encountered was the nearly stripped screws inside my laptop casing.  All in all, the replacement is not difficult (and I'm certainly no guru), but you will want a clear surface, a screw driver, and perhaps some tape (to hold the cords in place).
