Question about Gateway 450ROG Notebook

1 Answer

Gateway 450ROG Laptop was downloading a video when the screen slowly went all white. I had to power off. I waited a while reloaded the battery and powered up. I got the windows didn't power down right. Windows will start normally in 30 sec.(unless you choose safe mode) It started up , got to where it loaded my desktop, but then stopped no start button or icons across the bottom of the screen. Then it started to slowly turn white. I powered down, unplugged power cord, removed battery, held power button for 15 sec and replaced battery and plugged back into electrical power. It showed the reovery screen again. Windows welcome screen came up but that was all, which took unusually long to load. Then it slowly turned white again. I powered down.

You must go through the safe mode and uninstall your graphics driver and install another one, may be you will find more compatible driver with your graphics card and your windows copy on gateway website.

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?

Gateway 450ROG audio stopped working after connecting to TV


Go into Start / control panel / sounds / and see if any drivers are showing, if not then re-install, Go to vendors site to download driver for your laptop.

Just remembered little tip, can you see the speaker at lower right of screen, if not driver may not be there especially if it was before.

The cable is dislodged or you have a failing lcd.If you want to repair this yourself.Check online for a replacement cable and a Lcd too.Then you will have to open the Lcd Bazel to remove or check the cable.Make sure when you attempt this there is no power attached ,battery and Ac Adapter.

Gateway laptop- screen went dark but is still on.


You most likely have a defective screen - a defective inverter or a CCFL lamp or simply the video cable needs reseating. After reseating the video cable and the problem is still there then :-
To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the instructions.

Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:

  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display or appear black.
  • Picture flickering on and off.
All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.
Check out www.lcdparts.net for parts, repair service and DIY info.

MY GATEWAY LAPTOP SCREEN WENT BLACK AFTER 20 MIN OR MORE


I'm betting that you need a new "Inverter" board, especially if it's a Gateway 450ROG.
There is an inverter that Gateway used in several models that has a known defect.
Inverters are relatively inexpensive ,and easy to replace. You could ven do it yourself if you have a little skill at disassembly / re-assembly. Tell me the model number of your laptop and I can help you more

CMOS BATTERY

PLEASE NOTE: This is not the battery that powers your laptop; it only maintains certain internal settings. If you need a main battery, please refer to the page on our web site for your laptop model.

CMOS batteries are located on the motherboard; if you are not comfortable with the inner workings of your laptop, you may want to consider having the battery installed by a qualified technician.

Here is the link to their site for your cmos battery
