Question about Gateway NV5216U Notebook

1 Answer

My Gateway NV52 was playing a movie then it went black. no external mouse connected. when I reboot this darn thing all i get is a black screen and none of the red lights will light up. I see that the power light is lit and I can hear the fan but nothing else. I hope that someone can help me with this. I have had this laptop for over a year and no major issues until now.

Since i dont have more details about the issue, i would recommend a complete system recovery.
Power on the laptop and keep tapping Alt+F10.
That will take u in to the recovery mode.
Select complete system recovery.
This process will take around 30 to 45 min and make sure u plug in the AC adapter.
Also note that u will lose all your datas.

When i turn on my gateway nv52 the screen is black and white with horizontal lines. i can plug my laptop into an external monitor and it is fine so it has to be something with my video cable or monitor. ...

First things first simpers,your netbook might have a "hotkey" combination that toggles between external monitor and your screen .On my netbook iits Fn/F5 but yours might be different. Goto your manufactures site to find out the exact "hotkey" function.
Good Luck

Gateway NV52 on AMD-64, running vista home premium. The

Not sure about the blue, but it sounds like the black screen problem others are having all over then net. Here was my two cents on it so far....

There is a very good chance if you are using a external mouse instead of the touch pad, that is what is causing it. Problem is, I am still looking into why and do not know of a fix yet.

I have the very same laptop and mine worked just fine with a external mouse up until I formated it. Now just like the many other owners, my mouse freezes and and then seconds later the screen goes black. It doesn't however when the external mouse in not pluged in.

I would have to assume this is due to something not being installed right during the windows installation. As I said, mine worked fine until the format. Until I find out what is causing this error to happen, my best advise is not to use a mouse, just use the touch pad.

It's kind of a pain lol, I had gotten so use to the mouse. I kept reaching for it even after I unplugged it. I had to take it off my desk so I would use the touch pad lol.

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.
