Question about Gateway MT3705 Notebook
Was working great at home. Brought to work and powers on, but no no video display
Ah you are the great blind Bill are ya LOL
Ok let me think foir a second and evaluate your options. OK check this link http://support.gateway.com/s/Mobile/2007/Apache/1014142Rnv.shtml
Now read this carefully and fully feel what im saying
Ok here is a possible cause and warning pass it on
Laptops a delicate even thought they are made from cast plastic and metal
Validate the waranty ok
Here we go again the display on laptops and microthin displays are run with ribbon cable you need to cary this hardware like there are eggs inside when your ruff with them connectors may come undone and possible tear if you are tach sharp then i would say crack the case (disassemble) my english sucks
Carefully with a polaroid take a picture so you dont forget the assembly of the box now look down by the hinge area for a loose ribbon cable (its flat maybe colored or clear not sure) it connects to the vdu ( graphics card basically) on the motherboard it may have disconnected at the video terminal also so check there also and treat this like nitro man anyway if this sounds a little tuff im sorry
But you can get it serviced if the warranty is still good and it wont cost you anything but time and gas
( Good luck i feel your pain )

Again, if you can see the video using an external monitor, either your screen, LCD Inverter, or LCD video cable is bad.
If you cannot see the video using an external monitor, your graphic chip on your motherboard is shot. Your laptop is on life support. Pull the power adapter out of the wall and let the machine die.
You can reflow the BGA CHIP. However, the life span on those reflow are short and the graphics are sometimes compromised.
If you feel like reviving the patient, go straight to the chest with a defibulator. However, that will last just long enough to get the patient to emergency surgery will little change of returning to a normal life.
Get a new laptop, or repair it knowing that it will die without notice.
