Question about Gateway 3522GZ Notebook
Display went dark on startup, the video is there, but so dark it is only visible isn a darkened room. Remote monitor works fine. Power down, power up, unplug plug in hard drive, nothing helps. Ideas?
Some searching on forums convinced me the inverter had failed. Picked one up for $65, removed the frame around the screen, removed the mounting screw for the inverter, and unplugged both ends of the old and plugged in the new. Put it back togeher and fired it up, bright again. Key here was that a remote monitor still worked which meant video card was OK. The lamp could have been bad, but apparently the life of lamps is pretty decent.
