Having problems with your Gateway 450ROG Notebook ?

My gateway laptop's screen lamp recently went dark. There's slight visual appearance if you point the screeen at a light or something but aside from that you cant see anything your working on. One thing I do notice is if I close the screen and pull it open really fast the lamp kinda just goes on and off real quick with a slight clicking sound. What could the problem be? Thanks


Answers :

You may need to go onto the system board and reseat the connection. It could be loose. Maybe a drop or some type of sudden impact caused it. If that doesn't work then your LCD inverter is going bad and you my need to replace the LCD screen.
