Gateway notebook problem

When I turn on my notebook the fan comes on and the AC light comes on.The problem is that the screen is black. It shows nothing at all almost like the thing was not turned on. On the status indicator there is a red light that stays on. I think the light is the MODULAR BAY ICON. Any help would be appreciated.

    I have the exact same problem with my gateway notebook, The orange light that goes on is for the modular bay when you take out a drive to put in another one. But I didn't do anything with my drive, the light just popped on and now the computer doesn't boot up at all.

    When I turn on my gateway 450 notebook, the fan comes on , the screen is black and on the status indicator there is a red/orange light that stays on. Is there a way to get my computer to boot? I have taken out the cd/dvd drive and re-set the computer - no luck.

Gateway 450ROG, will not start. Red DVD/CD ROM


I have the very same problem, the Drive light turns red, the screen is "black" and the battery charging light indicator on the front is off. No differance if I'm traying to power up on battery or AC-adapter.

Before this problem appeared I had problems where the laptop was powering off, with no warning, and I had to restart it. This happened several times and was going on for about a week before it died totally. Can it be the CMOS battery on the mother board? Anyone having clue what the problem could be?

Power comes on but screen stays black


The backlight inverter board may be bad, or worst case will be bad lamp. You should look to see if the cable comes off the inverter board first. You may learn maore here:
