I would try just using a little bit more force (not too much!) the bezel will have clips around it to keep it in place along with the screws under the rubber protectors. Also make sure that the bezel doesn't hook in to the hinge cover in any way, as this will prevent it from coming off properly. If it does then pop the hinge covers off before continuing.

Remove the screen bezel (plastic screen surround), this will reveal the whole screen. At the bottom of the screen you will see an elongated piece of circuit board with wires coming from either end covered by frosted plastic.
That is the inverter, to remove it gently pull the plugs from each end and remove the screw from the middle and pull the board away and replace it.
If you have not got a replacement yet look at the inverter for a copper coil, if you re-solder the solder points around the coil you may find it works again as components that suffer from extreme heat the solder joints dry causing bad connections, re-floating the solder solves the problem in 90% of cases.

I searched gateway's website but they're pretty tight lipped about their service guides. I did find this link to some pdf files, even though it's not your exact model, you might find some useful info there. Hope this helps and good luck. If I 'fixed ya' please rate me.Thanks.-jmattes ( just copy and paste the link into your browser) http://tim.id.au/laptops/gateway/

Thnak you for your query
You will have to replace the WHOLE inverter board, not just part of it
The inverter is responsible for taking 12V supply and converting the power to a higher volatage to allow the screen to light up
I would suggest that you book the laptop into a reputable PC shop to complete the repair
