Display comes on, says "Digital," then goes black.

I'm not sure what's happening, but here are some questions to ask yourself:

-Are all the cables properly connected? Monitor to computer, monitor to wall?
-Is your graphics card properly inserted in your computer?
-Does the display work when plugged into a different computer?
-Is the computer plugged in and turned on?

There's a troubleshooting section in the user's manual, found here:

Monitor is black when computer is on

Make sure your video card is properly seated on the motherboard. Also, it might be a good time to open up your case and blow it out with compressed air. I use an air compressor. Sometimes you need to reseat the hardware. If that doesn't work you might have a faulty video card.

Computer monitor flashes on then turns off

Try the monitor with another computer. If it works, the video circuitry (whether it is on-board or a separate adapter) in the Gateway is the problem and needs to be replaced. Otherwise, the problem is with the monitor itself. From your description it is probably the Gateway's video that is the problem since the power light on the monitor remains green indicating that it is seeng a signal, but not something it can properly interpret, i.e., one or more of the control signals are shot.

MX 6124 Gateway notebook screen stays black when powering up

Repaired! This sounde like a fuelty screen or screen inverter. To check this, connect to an external monitor, if the external works properly, then it's the screen or inverter. If the external doesn't work, let me know and we'll run the problem down to a more indepth (internal) trouble shoot.
