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.

Good luck

Describe your Gateway M675 Laptop w/ Pentium4 Gateway M675 won't maintain a charge after charging and the display flicks from ac/dc until the battery is completely empty. Do I need a new battery or power...


Sounds like you need a new power adapter.The M675 needs the correct voltage constantly to work correctly.I'm using one right now and it does the same thing with the wrong adapter or a weak adapter(low voltage).M675 is a great laptop but with the 3.0ghz its got to get the power it needs especially when its under a heavy load.

I can't display my laptop onto my tv.


Lots of people are doing this and part depends on what your home theatre has to offer in the way of connections.

With laptops you haver to tell the laptop to use other displays This is usually FN + F5 or FN + F6

For sound most use the LINE OUT on a computer or laptop and connect that to a suitable input on the receiver using a 3.5mm to stereo phono lead.

If you are lucky enough to have an OPTICAL sound out on your computer and one on the home system that would be a better option.

For the video side again it depends on what your computer has to offer

If it has DVI and your TV or home system has DMI then that is the very best option. Remember to lower the resolution on the computer first and to check and of your graphics card options for dual display. A DVI to HDMI lead is needed for that

NVIDIA graphics cards seem to work best in this area.

If you have a VGA connector on your TV that is another great option and you would only need a VGA lead.

Some cards and laptops have S-VIDEO out. Lots of TV's and home systems have these and the display is quite reasonable. If using S-video connections use a GOOD quality cable.

Some people can only obtain a black and white picture so check your graphics card did not come with any special adaptor.

Another method is composite video Even that is not always 100%

Some laptops need a special S-video adaptor which is just a short little cable to properly enable the S-video and convert S-video to composite. That is probably the worst way to do it.

Using a VGA to component lead is also an option but results vary wildly from no picture to quite good. A lot depends on the quality of the lead once again.

I use the optical sound and DMI lead to power a 50" Sony with great sound and picture.

Mortherboard,keyboard replacement on gateway m360


First I would ensure my video cable was firmly connected. Sometimes that connector does not seat all the way causing what you are seeing. That is the rectangular connector leading fro the cable on left side of the LCD to the motherboard. Normally there are several hardware components related to a white display. LCD, video cable, or motherboard all causes of white screen. Have you checked external video? What was the original issue before motherboard and keyboard replacement?

check the panel to make sure the panels are the same model number there are more then one part number for gateway lcds for your model and if your laptop uses the xga screen and your not replacing with the correct panel then you will get the problem you are seeing now.even thought the inverter and back light are the same the panel are very differant.

No video screen at all in mt3422 gateway laptop


Unlikely. Most systems won't boot without a working display card, you'll get a beep code. USB video only works on a fully booted system so the operating system can initialize the device and load the drivers.
