Get the LCD on your Gateway system replaced or repaired
contact a local technician
as you are getting display on an external monitor so it makes sure that the screen on your laptop has gone bad.

I have a B130 that has a monitor problem. When I start the computer the screen flashes but will not stay on. It works fine hooked to an external monitor. I replaced the inverter. I was not paying close...


If the display works fine on external monitor your video circuitry on the motherboard is fine. Since you replaced the inverter brd and you still have the same problem it has to be either the LCD display panel or the LCD I/O cable or the connector on the motherboard that the LCD I/O cable plugs into.

Screen goes into standby mode after a few seconds. Screen will not stay on. Started after the computer was on and coming out of standby mode. Computer works fine on external monitor.


Depending on the options you purchased the laptop with, it either has an integrated video circuit into the motherboard or a plug-in video card to the motherboard. If the laptop works fine with external monitor, your motherboard or video card is defective. Your LCD display is probably O.K.

Laptop screen will not display but has dull light. Charger light comes on but doesn't stay on long.


I have the same problem with my HP dv9000. If I plug in a monitor everything is fine (but defeats the purpose of a notebook).

GeekSquad says the LCD backlight is out. I have not confirmed this.

Black screen after returning from florida


plug in > if charge light comes on and screen black proceed.... if no charge light comes on on laptop your charger's not working
plug into external monitor > if the external monitor works fine with laptop then your LCD is not working, you can look for the Function key (should be bottom left) and the monitor button (probably f7) and switch back and forth... this should tell you if the lcd works or not.

Screen stays black on startup of toshiba satellite L300


have you tried either switching between external and internal monitor usally Fn + F5 on toshiba or try plugging a monitor into the back and see if it displays.
if you get a display on the external monitor then its probably a screen or inverter fault if you donot get a display to an external screen then it is likley t be the graphics on the board itself.
hope this helps

Dell Latitude


If the system still works on an external monitor and functions normally otherwise, you might be able teo replace the LCD assy for about $150.

If the system no longer works on external either, then I'd say the system is no longer viable as an item to repair as it will be cheaper to replace it then to repair it. (New laptops start at around $500)

Dell inspiron 1150 laptop black screen


Can you hear the Windows startup noises but can't hear it?

Does it work plugged into an external monitor? (Any good CRT or flat screen should work.


Be sure to plug in the screen before you turn it on.
If it doesnt output to the LCD automatically you may have to hit FN-F8 to switch to external.

If it works on external monitor you are just dealing with a screen problem of some sort - either a bad inverter or backlight in the LCD most commonly...

Let us know.
