Question about Gateway (5502156) CD-ROM Drive
On boot up, I get a battery error. I've searched the mother-board over and over. I've even pulled it out and search the back side. I can't seem to locate the battery.

Hi Dan -
On this particular Gateway series of laptops, there is actually a bios "chip" you can replace entirely. It's sitting in a cradle right next to where the keyboard connects to the mobo (square black chip, one angled corner). It's very easy to pop out and replace, and is definitely something I would try.
You can do a search on eBay for "gateway bios chip" and you should have some luck.
I hope all goes well.

CVI error is a visual interface error, most likely a graphics card built onto the syetm board. However the motherboards are no longer available but there are a number of ways to upgrade this pc if all else in in good order.Contact for further support

Hopefully, it is just the on board video that has gone bad, and not the motherboard. When you install a video card on a PC, that has on board or integrated video, you will need to access the BIOS screen on start up and disable the on board video. That way the video signal will come from the new video card and not the on board video.
I hope this helps,

Check the video connectors on the motherboard.
You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashes on and off or displays reddish pink hue. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickers on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replace the CCFL lamp.
To determine if the video card or the LCD is faulty, connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight. It could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out, this is the most likely case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.
