Remove the screen by taking the plastic cover around the screen off, the screws are hidden behind the small rubber bumpers. Once the plastic is off, there will be four screws holding the screen in place, remove those and the screen will pull forward, then you will see where the lcd ribbon connects to the screen. Disconnect it and set it to the side. Now you will need to remove the plastic piece at the top of the keyboard in order to get to where the ribbon connects to the board. You may need to remove the keyboard in order to remove this piece, and there may or may not be screws holding this piece in place. Pay close attention and go slowly, these should come apart rather easily unless there is a screw holding them.

My gateway 400sd4 screen is black but you can see it if you put a flashlight to it

Majority of the time it means that the inverter has gone out.

There are other less frequent causes as well including: bad lcd cable, bad lcd, bad graphics card.

9 out of 10 times though replacing the inverter will bring the screen back to life.

It's easy to swap out, it's pretty much the same process on a majority of laptops. Here's a tutorial for your model.

You can get a replacement part from eBay on the cheap.

Hope this info helps ;)

You should try plugging in an external CRT or LCD monitor. Most laptops will automatically enable this port when you connect a monitor and reboot, but you may need to hit some combination of keys on the laptop if you don't see anything.

You should try this to see if the laptop is running properly other than the internal LCD or VGA hardware.
