1 of 5 possibilitys
1. Bad LCD
2. Bad inverter.
3. loose connector.
4. Motherboard.
5. Overheating.

To narrow it down, plug an external monitor into the VGA adapter.
If it works, its 1, 2 or 3.
To find out which one it is would require dissasembly of the laptop , if that is some thing you feel comfortable doing , you can at least check the connector to be sure it is secure. If not you will need to take it to a shop.
If it does the same when plugged to an external monitor, the motherboard may be going bad or simply overheating. Again you would need to take it apart to determine this.
If it turns out to be the LCD , most places will charge around 400 bucks to replace the LCD. If you are a do it yourself person you can find one on ebat for around 150

Good luck.

How to fix curser


It isn't a problem with the curser. What you describe there usually happens if you have software, graphical demands, a corrupted driver or the like that almost maxes out your hardware.
Either that or your computer needs a good decent cleaning and freezes because it overheats.

Curser freezes on Boot Up


Download Malware Bytes Malware from cnet/download.com. Instal the program and once it updates, run it and perform a quick scan, not a deep scan and follow the prompts. If you need a good anti-virus that is free, get Avast, all you have to do is register once a year and it updates daily if not more. Also get Threatfire from online, it is also a free version that monitors every web page in cyber space and does a great job at keeping you out of trouble....and unlike Spybot, won't screw with your registry. Also instal Ccleaner...formally known as **** cleaner, it will clean your registry and all the other garbage that collects in it.

Gateway 460 freezes or will not come on.


It's probably overheating that's why when you first turn it on it works fine up until a certain point. Does it feel hot on the bottom? Are the fans spinning?

Curser freezes


When you said your cursor freeze, does the computer still respond or the whole computer froze. If the computer froze, then it could be anything from, memory, hard drive, cpu, or mainboard. Does the keyboard works, if just the cursor freeze, try using a usb mouse.

HELP! My laptop is REALLY slow...


hi,
is the cd/dvd working now after removing upper and lower filters, if it is that is good,
when does your computer freeze can you associate it with some activity that you are doing on it,
does it give any error when it freezes any blue screen error

when you deleted upper and lower filters did the notebook started to freeze right after that or it worked fine for some time,

try restarting your system in safe mode and see if it freezes there
to go into safe mode
restart your system> at gateway logo > start tapping F8 > in this menu select safe mode and try using it in safe mode

tell me what happens so that i can help you further
