Question about Gateway Computers & Internet

Need help getting the VGA to work on my Gateway lt2016u netbook. I have all the proper cables hooked up from the netbook to my flatscreen. I think it has to do with settings or a missing adapter. Any help will be appreciated thanks!

Try toggling the video selection by pressing the Fn key and the appropriate F-row key. You may have to attempt this a couple times until you see the monitor flash.

If this does not work, right click My Computer and select Manage. In the left pane, click on the Device Manager. The right pane will populate with devices. If there are any unknown devices listed in the right pane, try initiating a hardware scan by right clicking it.

If that doesn't work, I would look at the Display Adapters. Double click the listed display adapter(s) and check on the status of the drivers. Even going so far as checking for updates. If that does not work, try Uninstalling it with a right click and rebooting. Windows will locate the driver at boot. It may not be a nice screen at first but it will get there once it has been reinstalled.

I install windows vista on my Gateway Lt2016u Wireless Netbook/laptop...and network adapter drivers are missing.


You still need to install the drivers into your computer. You can get all the drivers in the website of the manufacturer.

Look for drivers and download page. Enter the model of your computer and select the operating system that you are running. Install the drivers.

After installing the drivers, make sure that they are all updated to the latest version to make them work to its full potential. You can install RadarSync ( - it is a PC driver updater to make your drivers updated all the time.

I have a lt2030u gateway netbook I need a ribbon cable that goes from the screen into the keyboard. my screen is ok but when i close or open the screen flickers if I put pressure on the left side joint...


no hits.

A eBay check for:

lt2030u gateway display ribbon cable

lt2030u gateway LCD ribbon cable

Then I tried hunting for:GATEWAY LT2016U LT2022U LT2030U LAPTOP LCD REPLACEMENT SCREENS and found this part number for the SCREEN: Gateway F846431 hoping to track down a supplier? NO HITS there either!

My final recommendation? Go to eBay and look for Auctions:

Now go to the bottom and "Ask buyers and sellers about this product"... MESSAGE the guy OR ~ CALL him at:

(201) 830-1637
between 11:00 Am - 6:00 Pm ET
Monday through Friday (excl holidays)

MAYBE they have your cable?

My gateway lt2016u netbook fell and now the screen is messed up. how do I fix this?

You will need a razor blade.

Where the black flat part of your screen meets the silver outlining there is a crease. Take the razor blade and slide it through the **** all the way around the screen. You might need to pull up on the black flat part with the razor blade to get it to unsnap. Then inside you will see the screen and a bunck of screws. Unscrew all the BLACK screws. Then pull the scrren forward. It will be screwed in on a metal rod on both sides. On the side of the metal rods will be some screws. Unscrew theses screws, then the screen will come out. You are not finished yet. The screen will be hook up to a a chord in on its back. Unplug the end that is hooked directly into the screen. You may need to take some tape off in the process. Then do the reverse steps with a new screen.
