The fault could be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.
The inverter supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp anf the CCFL lamp is a tint fluro lamp and it dims with age or fails like any fluro lamp.
You could test the voltage output of the inverter with a multi-meter or just replace it cost about $40 and the CCFL lamp cost about $10.

No display but ram and processor is okey..

1.Confirm the Gateway notebook is not powered off or in standby mode. Tap the power button to turn on or wake the computer.

2.Check the screen brightness. Hold down the "Fn" key, then tap the up arrow on the directional pad to increase the brightness of your Gateway 400's display.

3.Toggle the notebook display. If you have an external monitor hooked up to the laptop, hold down "Fn." Press "F3" until the display switches to the laptop, or until both the laptop and the external monitor display an active screen.

My laptop screen went very dark, I can barely make out whats on the screen but I know its working. What can I do to fix this situation on my gateway p-6860fx pc notebook?

Hi josue fernan...
You need to see if your laptop lcd screen is faulty and/or the lcd inverer is faulty.
1....Test the lcd screen:
Hook your laptop to an outside monitor and then start your laptop normally...if the picture on the external monitor is good, then your lcd screen is bad.
2....Backlight Faulty: If the monitor is still as dark like your lcd screen on the laptop then it could be the backlight that is faulty.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

Are you able to see a display if you plug in an external monitor? Remember that may have to use one of the fn functions (F8 on a lot of machines) to have it display on an external monitor.

My mx7515 screen stays dark after I power it up. I can hear the internals working but no screen. I tried hooking up a monitor to it, and that came up with no picture.


First: Make sure after you connected the external monitor to press a combination of key( Fn +[1-9: check for a small picture of LCD monitor] ). If after this no image is displayed on the external monitor then you may need to replace your motherboard. Some local computer shops may be able to fix it. The reason you are having this problem is because the video card is dead.

Screen is too dark to see clearly

The display might have a bad inverter or back-light. Connect an external monitor to the VGA port output and see if you get an image.

I have a Gateway 450ROG with very dim video on the display, I can hook up an external monitor and the video on the external monitor is fine but still very dimvideo on the monitor of the laptop. You can...

Hello !

Since an external monitor works, it is the display's backlight or inverter board.

If you were experiencing discoloration in the screen (pinkish lower light hues) before it failed, that would indicate a CCFL backlight issue. If the screen suddenly went dim on you rather than a slow degradation the inverter would be indicated.

In either case, a technician in your area should be able to help. Evaluate to see if the repair is cost-effective.

Hope this helps.

Got gateway w340ua laptod with a dark screen i already change the lcd and the inverter and still is dark... any sugestion...also i can used with a external monitor no problem

The LCD connector cables are probably not plugged in properly. Since it works with an external display it cant be anything else. The connectors are inside the cable. If you are sure that the connectors are fine then you will probably have to replace the LCD inverter board. Hope that helps, Sai.
