I have a Gateway notebook that is just over a year old. The computer went off and will not come back on. I contacted Gateway and they told me to remove the battery and harddrive, replace harddrive then wait 30 min replace battery and it should come on, it still won't power on. Contacted Gateway again and they told me to sent in for repairs, no other suggestions. Any ideas what it maight be? I am not returning to Gateway because I need the computer repaired asap as I use for work. Thanks

hi there, it may be that your cable connecting your monitor to the computer is being wiggled loose. You need to leave this to the pros as this can't be explained over the internet. You need to bring it to a computer shop for them to reconnect the computer. Tell them that the monitor cable is being severed from the graphics card.
What has happened is part of your back lighting circuitry has gone out. Yes it is repairable but can cost most of what a replacement monitor will cost these days. Check that out before spending the money. If the problem is only in the back lighting circuit then expect to spend about $100 for a replacement board.
LCD monitors lifespan depends on the quality. Normal use and you should get 2-3 years of reliable service minimum. The display itself is good for about 4000 or so hours of use or more. The problems that show up are always (well 99.99% of the time) are back lighting problems like you have experienced. You should turn it off by the switch when not using it as every hour it runs the screen save is an hour of usable life. Heat is not good for it so if your computer gets the dust cleaned out to keep it cool do the monitor at the same time. Once a year at least more if you smoke use gas heat and have pets.
Tube monitors have a much longer life but you have the size weight and poorer display to go with them. If you have to go back to a tube monitor don't go back to your 14 ask around and you should be able to get a 17 or 19 crt for free. Or expect to pay no more than $10-20 for one.
hook it up to another monitor then control panel then display see i8f something was changed in there
otherwise your screen may have gone but it's only two years old
what were you doing when you lost your screen
I picked up a FPD1730 monitor for free which was just sitting out in my apartment hallway. I suspected something was wrong and sure e**ugh there was ** backlight, but I could see faint video when I shined a flashlight on it.
A quick Google search of the inverter model # led me to a German forum which suggested replacing the fuse labeled "F1" on the inverter board. I don't have a matching fuse on hand but I bridged the connection with a wire and sure e**ugh the backlight came back on. Short-circuiting like this is definitely **t 100% safe but if you can find a 4A fuse then it's a really cheap and quick fix.
