If you can see a faint image of the desktop or the machine works with an external monitor, the either the screen inverter or the screen backlight has gone out. Start by checking the screen connections. The connection to the screen, screen to inverter and screen to motherboard. Connections can sometimes work loose. A loose connection generally causes the screen to go out entirely, rare but occasionally it can cause just the backlight to go. If the connections are good, then you will need to take it in to have the screen and inverter tested to find out which it is. If it turns out to be the backlight, you will have to purchase a new screen, screen are considered sealed units and just the backlight can't be changed out.

Gateway Solo 9550 will not power on at all.


first you would try the least expensive
make sure your ac adpater works
the plug could be bad on the end
next is the pin inside the dc jack where you plug it in, if the pin moves just a little , you may need a new dc jack sold on ebay cheap
make sure the battery is out when testing
