The screen on the laptop will light up but nothing else. We hooked up another monitor and it works. We assumed it was the screen so we ordered another screen and it still will not work. Just lights up but no blue, black or icons, nothing. Just a lighted screen.THis happened after ejecting a DVD. Got any ideas?

Since an external monitor works, it is the display's backlight or inverter board.
If you were experiencing discoloration in the screen (pinkish lower light hues) before it failed, that would indicate a CCFL backlight issue. If the screen suddenly went dim on you rather than a slow degradation the inverter would be indicated.
In either case, a technician in your area should be able to help. Evaluate to see if the repair is cost-effective.
I have the very same problem, the Drive light turns red, the screen is "black" and the battery charging light indicator on the front is off. No differance if I'm traying to power up on battery or AC-adapter.
Before this problem appeared I had problems where the laptop was powering off, with no warning, and I had to restart it. This happened several times and was going on for about a week before it died totally. Can it be the CMOS battery on the mother board? Anyone having clue what the problem could be?
check ribon cable by taking laptop apart and makign sure its conected to board correctly, but more than likely new bulb or replacement screen , search ebay they have a tone of secound hand screens for decent prices, search gateway 450rog lcd displays, hope this helps in some way
Honestly from the information you have listed it sounds like the issue is with your projector, not your laptop. If your laptop was having display issues it would be consistent on anything it was attempting to output display to, such as your monitor.
The projector sounds like its out of focus and possibly has a bad back light in it, I would suggest contacting the manufacture for a possible resolution.
Try hooking the Laptop to an external monitor like from your desktop pc,,you can see the connection on the back of the laptop,,When you do this, and you can see Windows on the Desktop monitor,,then this would indicate that your Back light on your Laptop screen may have burnt out .
