Question about Gateway M675 Notebook

1 Answer

I flashed the bios on my gateway m675 and it stopped working. It turns on but screen is blank. If I hook it up to an external monitor I can get into bios. Is there anyway to get it back to the way it was? Did I just completely screw it up?

    No I can only get into bios. I tried installing windows again but nothing happened. Is the motherboard bad? It was working fine but I flashed it with the bios version provided on their website and it stopped working.

    Once connected to an external monitor, does it fully work or can you get only in the BIOS?

Pls check the bios set up externally if you mistakenly turn the brightness down, and correct it

or see if ther is any brightness button you accidentally pushed on the top of your laptop

or ther could be some problem with your LCD inverter or the LCD itself.

Test it with an external monitor. If it does not work with an external monitor, then your motherboard is defective. If your laptop works good with an external monitor, then your screen need to be replaced.

I turned on my m-675 yesterday and got the gateway green and black screen that just continued to stay there. After 5 minutes I used the control/alt/delete buttons to reboot my computer. Now, my computer...


From the information, that you used control/alt/delete to re-boot, I am assuming that you sensed that the computer finished the booting process. Meaning the tell tale sound (music) of windows booting was there, the hard disk whirling (blinking LED) for a certain period and stopping etc. If that is the case, (meaning you think your computer is capable of booting) probably you have a display failure. If you have a VGA cable connect that cable to the VGA connector (0n your laptop) and connect the other end to Desktop screen (monitor) or a TV screen with a VGA input. Probably you will see a display right away. If not press the Fn key and the key which changes the screen from laptop to external screen. This key will be marked either as CRT/LCD or with a picture( a square with two lines on either side of the square). If you get a display there, you may need to get a technician to change the screen.

If display issue: connect an external monitor to see if any change.

Could be spyware - boot in Safe Mode (F8) - download, install and run SpyBot (spybot.com).

Good luck.

Well, you can purchase a replacement bios chip online. Depending on your technical skills that option may be over your head, but there are companies online that will do it for you if you mail it to them. You could also purchase the chip and bring it to a local shop, though not all shops will have a technician that can do this for you. You could also see if you can send it to gateway for reflashing, it will probably be costly but may help you.
