    My gateway has been repaired 4 times previously and they can't seem to find the problem.. Every time I use it for a period of time, the screen goes completely blue and all of the infomation is lost. It had the hard drive replaced the very first year that it was purchased. We purchased the extended warranty and it has not been worth the money!. The port was replaced less than 2 months ago and they could not find anything else wrong. Can someone please help me.!!!!!!!

If you laptop has had 4 repairs under your service plan bring it back to your Best Buy store and tell them to honor their "No Lemon" policy. Normally after the 3rd repair you can do a junk out exchange and get a new laptop.

Adapt sata hard drive to a Gateway MX3225 ata/ide lap top

I haven't heard about anyone doing it without a technical education in computer science.
It is not like you can buy a transformer cable for it. Are the sata drive from another laptop or a desktop model?
Because if it is from a desktop model you never will get it to fit anyway.

Gateway 3522GZ display

Some searching on forums convinced me the inverter had failed. Picked one up for $65, removed the frame around the screen, removed the mounting screw for the inverter, and unplugged both ends of the old and plugged in the new. Put it back togeher and fired it up, bright again. Key here was that a remote monitor still worked which meant video card was OK. The lamp could have been bad, but apparently the life of lamps is pretty decent.
