You might find this site helpful. Your exact Model is not there but an MT is there with instructions on LCD replacement. It may be close enough to get you through if you're good at fixing things. Gateway does ot provide Service Manuals online and their User Manuals don't cover LCD replacement.

Hope it helps.

    PS. I just remembered a site I use sometimes for Service Guides. They cost $5.99 each but they've saved the day a few times for me on models I was unfamiliar with. Your Gateway's Repair Manual is on the page at the link below...It's down the list a ways and is the MD78 (MD7800) listing. You click on Buy it Now right next to the Manual listing and it takes you through checkout, after which you can immediately download the manual which will take you step by step through the LCD Replacement.

My laptop screen went very dark, I can barely make out whats on the screen but I know its working. What can I do to fix this situation on my gateway p-6860fx pc notebook?

Hi josue fernan...
You need to see if your laptop lcd screen is faulty and/or the lcd inverer is faulty.
1....Test the lcd screen:
Hook your laptop to an outside monitor and then start your laptop normally...if the picture on the external monitor is good, then your lcd screen is bad.
2....Backlight Faulty: If the monitor is still as dark like your lcd screen on the laptop then it could be the backlight that is faulty.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

Right side touch pad for volume control on my MD7820u won't light up/is unresponsive.... help!

Most likely the pcb is defective for the volume control and must be replaced. But try looking in the device manager to see if anything has been disabled or has not been properly installed. Parts such as these can be replaced if they are not soldered onto the motherboard and can be swapped right out. If they are soldered onto the motherboard then your whole system would need to be sent in for repair.
