Gateway M675 creen problem

A one inch wide band runs from the top to the bottom of my screen almost in the center. The band does not appear on an attached external monitor. It will seem that the problem is with the LCD screen. Any suggestions on how to solve this problem? Thanks. Ntangoh

I have a 2inch wide band down middle of screen on

1) Have you installed new drivers or software or drivers? If so, remove them and restart the computer.
2) Try applying pressure with your fingers on top of the screen. If the band dissapears or dimishes, you may have a broken screen and it will need to be replaced.

Its possible that your slot could be dirty, you can try re seating the stick and then cleaning it with a brush. If that don't work you can just run it with one stick, last resort is to replace the motherboard.

I flashed the bios on my gateway m675 and it stopped working. It turns on but screen is blank. If I hook it up to an external monitor I can get into bios. Is there anyway to get it back to the way it was?...

pls check the bios set up externally if you mistakenly turn the brightness down, and correct it

or see if ther is any brightness button you accidentally pushed on the top of your laptop

or ther could be some problem with your LCD inverter or the LCD itself.
