My Gateway NE522 laptop screen went black.I can't adjust the light level. I hooked it up to my 46" sony by HDMI and it works fine. is there a backlight or inverter for this model NE522 ? Rick

its more than likely the inverter went out. i suggest opening the bezel around the screen and get the part number off the old inverter. then check eBay for the replacement. should be no more than $10

good luck

How do I replace a keyboard on a Gateway NE522?

Laptop keyboard replacement procedures are all similar,

Search on the internet for how to replace ne552 keyboard (or similar). You my find quite a number of nearly relevant instructional videos and step-by-step instructions, referring to slightly different models..Look at a few and see how similar they are, pick one and follow it eg
Replace Keyboard Gateway Laptop or
Replace Keyboard on Gateway Laptop NE56R
What you really need is the maintenance & service manual, but there doesn't seem to be one. You might try contacting Gateway support and asking.
Keyboards for your model are readily available, on ebay or from commercial parts suppliers, even Gateway

Turn it on and light comes on but it blinks like 5 times after that it shuts down, each time i tried it did the same thing

take the battery out and unplug it wait a while then reinstall battery make sure your plug fully engages and no excessive wobble may also take a electric test meter and check out put voltage on power supply could have broken wire or shorted out or some one oopsed then forgot to tell you ie dropped it or pulled little plug out n dropped it in the dogs water pan whilst still plugged into wall socket as I have done if you can load test batteries as well as continuity might be bad batteries even new stuff can fail upon use the blink is a no power input/ dead battery signal you can try swapping batteries if another one is accessable if not 1800 gateway or ask an indian if still under warrenty use it you payed for it also can power it up usb to usb with a lil engineering I think????????????????

MD2614U will not turn on. red light blinks three times

The first thing to do is check that the charger is putting out the correct voltage, which should be ~19 volt. Then try to start it without the battery.If your voltage is OK and the battery out makes no difference, then I would suspect that you have a motherboard problem that must be fixed. If the computer starts up if you wiggle the DC plug where it goes into the computer, then it's the DC jack that is looks and must be re-soldered.

The dead laptop charger may be another cause. Try a new and correct one:

My nv5378u does not turn on, all i get is the battery light blinks 5 times. help please.

1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
4. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.
