Do u have an external monitor,try connecting them and see if u get an output, some laptops have a latch like thing that turn the lcd off,may be it is stuck,check it out.

    Wow,I thought the external monitor would work anyway i assume that u r not even able to get past the bios screens then...,ur display driver could be corrupt,did u get any bsod's,else u could try using the recovery cd's if provided by gateway....,mostly recovery cd's just format the c:,if ur files are not on the C:,the u r safe..


    Hope this works

"z" light comes on, then battery charge indicator -Doesn't start!


Hi,
If there no indicator of power on the laptop , There could be two problems either the AC adapater is bad or the motherboard connector pin or board is faulty.
If you see power light activity , but the screen is blank. try connecting an external monitor to the laptop. Press the Fn+ F8 key to toggle the screen to the external display. If you see the display on the external screen then the LCD is bad . Otherwise its your video card.

Thanks for using fixya

Hi, I have recieved a used laptop from a friend.It is an Acer Aspire 1690LCi ZL3. The unit powers on,battery is good,DVD drive opens but the screen is dead.Please help. Sam


A few things to try. First turn on the unit, and after it seems to have booted up (like at a windows login or something), take a flashlight and in a darkened room shine it on the screen. If you can see a picture, it means your backlight is out. Go on ebay or elsewhere online and look for an acer aspire 1690LCi backlight. Then open up your screen and replace it (there should be tutorials online for this). If you don't see an image, your screen maybe be out or have more serious problems (video card, LCD dead, etc.).

Toshiba a10 satellite laptop screen problem


Hi, unfortunately this is an indication of dead pixels in the LCD screen. the only fix is to replace the screen and this may be more expensive than a new computer.
You could try EBAY "Want it now" section listing your exact model and serial number computer to see if some one has a screen available.

This is likely due to a failed power supply. Replacing the power supply board should solve the problem.
