Having problems with your Gateway PC Laptops ?

My Gateway Solo 8500 LCD screen is fine eexcept it is intermittenly on or off.

Answers :

Laptops can develop connection problems with the screen to the mobo after any given amount of wear and tear. If this is the case then user-repair is not typically a wise decision as it will either void the warranty or further damage your hardware. Having the manufacturer of your laptop repair it is a much safer route. If however the connection is not the problem then this is a problem with your display drivers or faulty display hardware / video card.
