Question about Gateway Solo 9300 Notebook
I've got 2 of these, one runs but the screen only shows a pale white glow, and the other won't boot, but has a good screen.. I need to know how to swap them out without destroying the good screen.. help!
Before opening the laptops try easy things like swapping the memory. Also remove all cards underneath the panels you can get to (wifi. modem, etc) The machine will boot with just RAM inside it. This includes swapping batteries wich can cause failure. If you tried swapping basic parts. Video card and screens are the next step.
Replace the video card and the screen in the machine that runs:
First, you want to get the two apart, the screen can be removed by locating the covers inside the lid where the screen is. Usually rubber feet or disc shaped plastic that matches bezel texture. slowly remove screws, also the hinges must be removed. The covers for the hinges usually pop off or are held be a screw in the rear of the laptop. The ribbon cable follows all the way down to the motherboard through one of the hinges, there is a way to guid it out of the hinge area. If you get lucky the screen cable connects to a
removable mini card which is your video card. The one with the
white screen may have a bad video card.
