What is the difference between mx3231 mx3228?

The screens are probably interchangeable. The two laptops have the same size screens, 14-inch Widescreen Ultrabright WXGA TFT. The major difference between them is that the MX3231 has a CD writer/DVD-ROM optical drive. The MX3228 has a dual-layer DVD writer. See and for the specs of both of these Gateway notebooks.

I hope this helps.

Trying to remove keyboard from gateway mx3228 just do not know how please help!

I'm not 100% sure about gateway but you can usually download the service manual from the manufacturers web site. Go to their support page and enter your model + service manual or keyboard replace in the search window your should be able to find it and download it then. Be aware most of the time changing the keyboard on most laptops means just about taking the whole computer apart.

Screen blackouts & graphics mess up

I have experienced the same problem with an Nvidia graphics card. From what I could tell, it was an overheating issue to begin with, which quickly turned into a damaged graphics card. What I ended up doing on my desktop is opening up the side of the case, and decreasing the graphics load on the card. I still ended up having to replace the graphics card. I would suggest upgrading to windows 7 as well, even if you have driver problems, the upgrades in the OS seem to handle the errors much better and recovers without the severe color / rendering problems like XP did.
If you are confident it was not an overheating issue that started this, please boot your computer into safe mode, completely uninstall the graphics drivers, reboot into safe mode and install the drivers again. Most Operating Systems tend to stay 'sick' from old drivers even when you're using new drivers, so the best way to do it is completely get rid of it, and put it back in.
