Generally these problems are related to laptop hardware, so taking it to an authorized service provider may be the only option available. Usually it will require a trip to a service center and part replacements will probably be required. If you just purchased it recently and if it's within your retailer's return policy it would be a good idea to seek a replacement.

If you can provide some more detail about the problem I might be able find a fix or at least provide some more detail. Here are some questions that might help:

1) When does it happen? Is it on start up? Does it happen randomly while using the system?
2) When did this problem start? Has it always been an issue or is it a recent occurrence?

You have to send the computer for service. There is a break on the circuit board of the screen or on the mother board, or there is a problem with one of the ribbon cables.

Using the computer like you are can make other damage, and thus increasing the cost of the repair, depending on the nature of the short or open that is occuring!

You may be lucky, and only the ribbon cable assembly has to be replaced. If it is the screen or the mother board that has to be replaced, then the cost will be high.

Laptops can have this type of problem from being handled roughly, dropping, or from a lot of opening and closing of the screen. Most of the time, these computers are very reliable and are trouble free for many years.

Hi,
The way to restore Gateways is to hold down the ALT Key andrepeatedly hitting f10 then it should bring you to a boot sequence screen thenchoose the HDD and then hold down ALT and repeatedly hit f10 again that shouldprompt the restore feature for gateway. If that doesn't work,the only way to doit is to boot into windows and run the Recovery program.

Screen is freezing unless i hold top left screen


Unless there is a short in the screen unit this should not make a difference. You need to have this serviced or go through and service the screen yourself.

You can press Control-F11 when you see the 'Dell' logo after you turn the computer on. If this doesn't work right off the bat, hold control while turning the machine on and keep tapping F11 until you see it begin to boot. If you haven't deleted the restore partition in your attempt to reinstall XP, you should be able to restore the system to factory spec by doing this. You will lose any data you have obviously, but the malware will be gone as well.

Go to Major Geeks.com and ask them how to get rid of the virus. They are a very good source of up to the minute virus fixes.

You cannot keep operating in safe mode. You must fix it.

There is blue lines black lines and the top is off white. I have to hold top right corner one way and left corner the other to see my screen, what will fix my problem?


You will have to remove the screen and tighten all the connectors, including the ones for the flat ribbon cable. The contacts have become loose or tarnished.
