How to replace screen on gateway kav60 netbook

1) ALL power removed from the laptop. AC adapter and Battery.

2) The plastic frame that surrounds the LCD screen in the Front is the Bezel.

There are screws which hold the Bezel in place. (Philips head)
There are rubber covers which cover the screw heads.

3) There are plastic covers which cover the Hinges.

The Hinge Covers must be removed first, then the Bezel.

The Gateway KAV60 Netbook PC is one of the Gateway LT series.

I have no links to give you for this series of Gateway Netbook PC's.

However if you follow this pictorial guide, it will lead you in removing the Bezel, and replacing the LCD screen

As you can see scrolling down, and following the photos, and info, remove the Hinge Covers.
(I use a computer pick, perhaps you have a similar device handy)

Then the rubber screw covers are located around the front of the Bezel.
These are removed.

The Screw Covers have a type of contact cement on them. If you carefully remove the Screw Covers, you can reuse them.
Just ease up under one edge to start peeling them off.
If they are set down on a piece of paper, glue side up, the glue will stick again when you go to reinstall the Screw Cover.
(Yes, they do like to stick to the tool, and inevitably your fingertips)

Remove the screws with a Philips screwdriver.

The Bezel snaps into place. There are plastic protrusions (Tabs) that come out of the outside edge of the Bezel, and snap into place in the Display Cover.

Take your fingertips, and ease up on the Inside edge of the Bezel, towards the middle.
(The edge towards the middle of the LCD screen)

When you have the edge up a little, hold it up with the fingers of one hand, then with the other hand go towards the corner, about 2 inches from the corner, and ease the Bezel up.

This part of the Bezel should pop up. Then work along the Bezel with your fingers, and keep popping it up.
Use care as the Bezel can break, but if you are not in the middle pulling up hard, and towards the corner easing it up, it shouldn't break.

The Bezel is made of space-age plastic, and is Pretty Tough. You have to get stupid with it to break it.
When you are removing the Bezel for your first time, you may get a knot in your stomach, when the Bezel goes pop, pop, pop, as it's snapping loose from the Display Cover.
It almost sounds like you're breaking it.

Unplug the Inverter at the bottom of the LCD screen, from the motherboard cable, (Coming out of the main body of the laptop) by it's cable connector.
Unplug the other side of the Inverter that goes to the LCD screen.

Remove the Inverter, set it aside. Sometimes tape is used to fasten the Inverter, sometimes a screw, or screws.

Remove all screws for the metal brackets that hold the LCD screen assembly in place to the Display Cover.

{The LCD screen is an assembly. The LCD screen is composed of layers held together by a metal frame, that resembles a picture frame.

There is a Bracket on the Left side, and a Bracket on the Right side.
The brackets are screwed to the metal frame that surrounds the LCD layers.
The Brackets are also screwed to the Display Cover}

After the screws for the Brackets TO THE Display Cover are removed, unplug the cables at the top of the LCD screen that go to the webcam, IF the laptop has a webcam.

Ease the top of the LCD screen forward towards you.

Unfasten the tape that holds the Display Cable (Video cable) to the back of the LCD screen.
Use your fingernails, and unplug the Display Cable from the back of the LCD screen.

Unscrew the Brackets from the LCD screen.
Find THE screws that attach the Brackets to the LCD screen.

You may also be able to access the screws that hold the metal frame together, that surrounds the LCD screen layers.
You do not want these.

What isn't listed is if there is a Wireless Antenna. If so, there may be antenna leads coming out of the body of the laptop, and going to the LCD screen assembly.

The antenna leads have to be disconnected from the Wireless Card Module.
The laptop is turned over, and the Wireless Card compartment is accessed.
(It may be part of another compartment used by another device, also)

The cover is removed, and the two antenna leads are detached. Observe the colors of the wires. Black and White usually. Observe the connectors to which these wires attach, and make a note. Plug the wires back in the same way.

This is not your laptop, but I feel it may help explain the above,

Scroll the page down, observe Steps 8 and 11.

LCD screen is black, no lights at all. Before this, was having unstable screen brightness. Replaced LCD Inverter but problem still the same. So, I would like to try replacing the backlight lamp. The local...

The Backlight Lamp. I concur with your thoughts that it's the Backlight Lamp. Holding a flashlight at an angle, can you fantly make out images on your LCD screen?

Generally the Backlight lamp goes first. I've found it's best when replacing the Backlight Lamp, to go ahead, and replace the Inverter also. And vice-versa.

To get at the Inverter, the outside Bezel in the front of the LCD screen, is removed. The Inverter Board is right there at the bottom. 2 to 3 wires, couple of screws to remove, and replace, and you're good to go.

Not so with the Backlight Lamp.

Laptop/notebook manufacturers use different terms when describing these parts, but generally it is,

A.Top Cover. When the laptop is closed, you are looking at the Top Cover.

B.Bezel. The thin plastic frame that goes around the LCD screen, in the front. Usually two to three screws on top, and bottom, with 1 to 2 screws on each side.

There is a rubber cover over the head of the screws, and is held on by a rubber cement like compound.
After the rubber covers are removed, and the screws, the Bezel is removed by inserting a plastic letter opener along the parting line, and worked up, and off.

(Pop-pop-pop, as the plastic formed clips made into the Bezel frame, release from the Top Cover)

C.LCD screen.
The LCD screen has a thin metal frame around it. The LCD screen is held in by thin metal brackets. One on each side.

The brackets screw to the sides of the LCD screen, then the brackets have screws that hold them to the Top Cover.

The LCD screen is removed after un-connecting the power cable, and Inverter cable. The bracket screws are then removed, then the brackets themselves.

Finally you are at the point to access the Backlight Lamp.

To save a copy to your computer;
After it has Fully downloaded, go up to the top header, and click on the Floppy Disk icon. Second icon from the left. If you hover your mouse cursor over it, it will briefly reveal,

In the - Save a copy... window, write down the file name. Then go to the bottom right, and click on save.

If you do Not have your downloads set to go to your My Documents folder, (Documents for Vista), this file will go to your desktop screen.

When you see the file name, double-click on it to open the file.

Disassembling the laptop starts on Page 65. (Machine Disassembly and Replacement)

Removing the LCD screen is on Page 77. There is no guide on replacing the Backlight Lamp.
It is not an FRU. (Field Replacement Unit)

The tech better be back at the shop, and have mucho experience at this!
Reasoning is, that if one Tiny mistake is made, you'll ruin the LCD screen!

Should you wish to proceed this may help,

Blank, doesn't boot, and seems to shut down in under 15 minutes.

My nephew's W350A had the same issue last year. It turned out that the CPU was loose in its socket and not allowing the POST cycle to run. You will need to remove the back cover and the bracket that goes across the CPU. Remove the CPU and clean the pins with a little rubbing alcohol, re-install and you should be fine. Remember to aply a little more heat-sink grease across the top of the cpu before putting the bracket back on. This will help keep it running cooler.

The FPD1975w

Replacing the lcd screen more than likely. Problem in the PCB thats built onto the lcd itself.
They are rather inexpensive these days to replace. I would just buy a new one. Check warranties offered before buying, some manufacturers offer 3 years. ;)
