Question about Gateway Solo 9550 Notebook
The screen just stopped working. When you turn it on you can kinda see it loading.. but its very very dark.
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.
