You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Internal microphone not working on Gateway M-6843


First check the settings under Sound Settings of the Realtek HD sound Manager. If everything looks ok and it works with external microphone, then the problem could be Hardware problem which won't be fixed unless the motherboard is replaced.

In the meantime, I would also suggest you to uninstall and re-install the sound driver. By the way, what's the operating system installed on your laptop?.. Hope this helps.

Let me know if you need further help..

Good Luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.
