I have a dell 1318 laptop, which is ust over two years old, i have had many problems with it but nothing that i couldnt usually figure out, but today when i switched it on after the start up, the screen...

Sorry to give bad news, but the backlight is probably on its way out, this could also be down to the inverter, difficult to tell without seeing it. The acid test is to try the laptop on an external monitor and if it works on that, this confirms the dying screen issue.

If however it does not, your problems are likely to be related to the graphics chip on the motherboard.

Year old advent netbook 4211b will not turn on,

When you press power button press F1 or F2 or "del" key if you can see bios screen then you not need to refix RAM memory or reset bios.
IF you can see bios screen then lake sure harddisk is detected and SATA is disable then save settings and exit.
Also when you power up press F8 key if you able to see safe mode and other menu then you have change screen resolution enter in enable vga mode.
Then open control panel and display then change scree resolution to 1024*768.
Then apply and ok.
But if you can't see bios screen or nothing in dispaly then you have to refix RAM memory .
Check in back side there is 1 plate open it then refix RAM memory.
If still not get display then open back cover of laptop then find motherbord on it then pull cmos cell for 10 minutes so all settings go to defaults then again refix cmos cell then check.

Let me know if you need more assistance.

Wont boot no bios screen nothing

Check your memory card. Reseat or clean its edge connector with soft eraser.Do this after you shut it down properly , battery disconnected, and no any other power source is connected.

That is the first thing to suspect. Or try it also with a spare good ram card.

Gateway laptop

Doesn't sound too good - Could be a bad ram chip (right on the bottom of the laptop under a panel - try removing one or the other chips) or possibly bad motherboard (which is definately not worth it on a several year old gateway machine if you could even find one)

Let us know if the ram does it.

Screen problem

Perhaps your connections on the inside have come loose. It may warrant you take it to a specialist to check it over before it gets any worse. Some other person was on here some time ago who had a similar problem and all it was is the switch in the lid. Apparently they tinkered with it by just kept on pushing it back and forwards as if to continue to open it and it came right they tell me that they hardly used it thats why!.
