My Gateway ZX4300 screen is not working. The screen does not turn on at all but the fan is working and the hard drive is as well.


gateway zx4300 black screen fix

i think i might have found a fix, if you know how to fix the xbox with the fan trick this one will sound close to the same.

if when you turn the computer an you get nothing not one bit of color or brightness from the screen this is your fix, well it worked for me.

i am not responsible for any more damage you might encounter, this does require disassembly


1. take the computer apart until you have the fan and heat sink in front of you.


2. remove fan and heat sink from mother board.


3. (at own risk) with computer open an heat sink off plug in the power cord and turn the computer on.


4. leave computer on for 8 to 10 mins.


5. turn computer off after 10 mins remove power cord and re install heat sink and fan.


6. hold pwr button down for 15 sec.


7. plug computer back in and you should now have your screen back.


this method worked for me i am using the computer with the bad screen to type this up an has been restarted a couple times an is still working fine! hope this works for you!!

Gateway nv52 notebook screen goes black but is still on, 2 days


I've had the same problem. The problem occurs because the wifi network driver is conflicting with vista. Just update to Atheros Network Driver V7.7.0.356 and it should fix the problem. You can find the download on the gateway support page.

My screen goes black after a few seconds


Sounds like a bad solder joint on the printed circuit board. Once it heats up then it no longer makes good contact and the monitor goes black until it cools down and makes contact again. You could resolder it if you knew where it was but monitors are dangerous to go playing around with as they can hold very high charges of electricity in their capacitors that are very dangerous. It's a throw away world. Go buy a new one.

Black Screen


Look in the back of the Gateway where you currently have the video cable connected. If there are two connectors, (Side by Side) there than disconnect & re-connect to the other. Your display should come up. Don't be fooled. Most Pc's that have no display on their monitor is not a monitor problem but a computer problem.
