Majority of the time it's NOT the backlight, it's the inverter. Who told you that it was the backlight specifically?

Virtually every lcd is the same procedure. Just remove the screws around the lcd, some are hidden under the rubbers, and CAREFULLY pry the plastic surrounding the lcd. It's basically common sense. Just take it apart....CAREFULLY.

That's about it, really.

Gateway 7330 gz shuts off or monitor flickers


This probably isn't a driver problem. Your backlight power cable is probably loose. You can tell by getting a flashlight and looking closely at your monitor while it's powered on. If you can see your desktop items then it's a backlight cable problem. I had the same problem with my Gateway. You can remove the front bezel from your display to get to the cable. I just pressed mine up into the display as much as possible and put a little hot glue on it to keep it from backing out. I never had the flickering problem again. Good luck.

A techie told me that the reason my Gateway 7330GZ notebook will not power on is a faulty power distribution IC on the motherboard. The part is impossible to find in my part of the globe (Nairobi, Kenya)...


You need to replace the motherboard. This may not be a cost effective solution.
It may be better to put your money towards a new laptop which will be faster and most likely slightly more than the cost of repairing the Gateway.
You can remove the hard disk from the Gateway and put it into an USB hard drive adapter case and then use it as an external USB hard drive for backups and data transfer.

Screen brightness often flickers


Your problem could be a faulty backlighting panel or the power connector for the backlight needs reseating.
There are two connectors on the LCD that are connected to the motherboard, one for the video signal and the other for the backlight power supply, reseat this connector and hopefully your problem will be fixed.

Backlight doesn't work. How much to replace? Can I fix if novice


Backlights are not generally expensive but I wouldn't suggest you repair it yourself unless you've opened up pc's before....you'll need a service repair manual to do it yourself as, at the very least, you'll have to remove the screen bezel (usually 4 screws) and then detach the screen from the hinges (again usually 4 screws).
I would suggest getting a couple of quotes from repair centres.
As far as backlight goes it either works or doesn't (like a light bulb) sporadic use usually means a bad connection rather than a blown light but it would still need to be opened up to check the connections...again needing a service manual and a technical person

7330GZ Gateway laptop keyboard doesn't work


There is one thing you can try. Uninstall the drivers for the keyboard from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the keyboard and reinstall the drivers automatically. If this doesn't work, then I'm afraid the Shift key function has failed and the keyboard will need replaced in order to fix it.
