Question about Sager NP9890 Notebook

Np9890v bought 11/2005 lcd screen goes black while pc lights and fans still on

I have been dealing with this for over a year and Last two weeks, I finally took it in geek squad in Best buy and I was told that it was a mere driver issue. I told them that I plugged in the laptop to another monitor and the display was showing but the screen on the laptop was not. So I downloaded the drivers from nvidia is the manufacturer of the card 7800gtx and also tried to update the driver from device manager as well. I got home last night and left the pc on all night and to my dissapointment, the lcd flat panel had gone black again. I googled the problem and I'm getting results that it could be a faulty backlight or inverter. Really I'm just exhausted with this laptop it was over a 3K purchase in 11/05 and I already shipped this pc once to California with Sager notebook while it was under the 1 year warranty when the harddrive became faulty on me. Now this. For the amount of money I spent on this 'supposedly' gamer pc it's beginning to seem I bought a lemon...

If you can find the right inverter it might be worth replacing yourself if you are up to it.

My NV54 went to black screen then grey tried reboot get screen to start up ...loading but nothing comes up. It was shipped to me three weeks ago.

Because the machine is new and in warranty i recommend that you contact Gateway to arrange to send it to them for repair. They will take you through a few troubleshooting pointers first before booking it in.
I would not try fixing the problem without help from a Gateway technician as because its new its up to them to deal with and laptops are designed to last at least a year before problems arise but in your case it's three weeks. There is obviously something wrong for it to go down within such a short length of time.

Good luck.

Light on the screen suddenly disappers

there is a invertor (fluresan invertor) in the LCD. invertor makes your lcd white, bright , lightly.  i think your invertor is breaking down. take the laptop to service.  sorry for my english.
