Gateway nv52 notebook screen goes black but is still on, 2 days
\015 My son bought a gateway nv52 notebook yesterday and the screen keeps going black. It is still on, but it won't do anything. The only thing you can do is turn it off. If you power it off and back on, then it comes up with the message saying windows was not shut down properly. It has happened 3 times now with no explanation.\015
I've had the same problem. The problem occurs because the wifi network driver is conflicting with vista. Just update to Atheros Network Driver V126.96.36.1996 and it should fix the problem. You can find the download on the gateway support page.
I had the same problem except only when I plugged in an external mouse. I would love to know the answer also. Already returned one computer, and got another, only to do the same thing again.

Black screen I have an HP Pavilion dv9700t notebook bought last July. Recently the screen started staying black any time I closed the lid and opened it.

Usually the only way to get the screen to not be black is leave the computer shut during startup until the login screen appears, but after logging in it does the break up thin
