I had the same problem. I fixed it by turning off the computer and removing the battery. Then I removed the RAM. After I completely remove the RAM, I reinserted the RAM. The LCD screen began to work.

Throw the whole thing away. I had the same problem plus the wireless card gave out. Biggets piece of junk made. Also had to upgrade the ram to 1 gb just to get the thing to work. Best use for this unit is a paper weight.

    It's been a few years since I posted my problem but what you answered with is exactly what happened to me. But I did find a use for the computer. If you hook it up to a monitor it works. I'm hooking it to my TV in the living room and can watch inter net tv this way.

Service manual will be just about zero to get since monitor is made other OEM.
Try this, lify up the front bezel and work your way around, and be careful on the ribbon cable.

My gateway nv54 laptop battery is ok, I've checked it in lap-top tech service. But the system gives me a message "consider replacing your battery" or something like that. With a full-charged...


Unfortunately there isnt much you can do, the only real solution that has ever been known to work is to completely drain the battery (I mean keep trying to turn it on even after its died, many many times) and then put in on charge for 8hrs.
Other than that, regardless of what people say, there isnt much else you can do. And I wouldnt put too much faith in any tests these techs have run, its almost impossible to really see what state the battery cells are in.
For future reference, when you are using your laptop plugged into the mains, take the battery out, that wil help prolong its life, and never let it get too hot or charge it longer than it needs (can bend the cell walls)

I was told by the computer repair company the connection is arching back and shorting out the chargers. To have a connection replaced would be $150 so that is what we are going to do. We have gone through 4 chargers on our gateway also.

  1. USIN CAPZ MAK U LUK IGNORANT
  2. Contact gateway. Let them know you have seen multiple reports of this online
    and you believe this should be repaired under manufactures warranty.
  3. Stop threatening to sue any/everyone because you don't like them.
    This never bodes well and creates a negative vibe for the person who will try to help you!
