    The laptop first started powering down by itself. After that happened a few times, the screen went white and I have been unable to use my laptop since.

Try moving the screen a little with your hands if it changes and you can see the screen as normal then you probably have a loose cable and you can open screen and rseat cable. If it stays white then you will need to replace the screen. You can the get screen on ebay.

Same problem - probably due to overheating - laptops not meant to be used 24/7 in 90% humidity and 90 Fahrenheit - lowered the screen brightness and the whiteness disappears.

The screen on my gateway nv turns white and freezes if i don't push on it what's the problem

- First restart your computer and then press and hold F8 keys until you get Advanced Options menu screen.Use the arrow key to highlight Safe Mode, and then press Enter
After that go the site of your Laptop manufacture. Once there enter the model number of the laptop then request driver (usually found in the web site's "Support Section"). There you should be able to find all the drivers for your model laptop
If this solution is helpless then simply get the Intel software partner Reginout to fix this annoying issue
hopefully it will help you

My Gateway MX6447 pc notebook I stared to do a restore and half way through the screen went white with thin blue strips top to bottom then the screen went black. when I try to star it up the hallow around...

If the screen went black but the laptop still turns on most likely the problem is related to the graphics chip but to be sure I would disconnect all the power including the battery, leave the laptop for a few minutes and try again if the screen is still black you will need to repair the graphics chip and if the screen is black but you can still see some text on the LCD than the inverter needs to be replace.

I'm betting that you need a new "Inverter" board, especially if it's a Gateway 450ROG.
There is an inverter that Gateway used in several models that has a known defect.
Inverters are relatively inexpensive ,and easy to replace. You could ven do it yourself if you have a little skill at disassembly / re-assembly. Tell me the model number of your laptop and I can help you more
