Having problems with your Gateway PC Laptops ?
I have a gateway w340ua lapetop the screen dont turn on
\015\012Does the hard disk appear to be spinning and the hard disk LED light flashing?
\015\012If so the laptop maybe booting up and the LCD screen maybe faulty. If so follow these instructions to determine the screen fault :-
\015\012You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.
Have to do a reflow with flux and industrial heat gun, cover all the mother board with foil not the video chip, and carefully heat around chip like for 30 to 35 second, it works!!! That is the most common problem among laptops. Do that they have poor dissipation or clogged coolers, although you have to be very careful with this procedure...

The power light blinks solid blue every four seconds or so (it?s off in-between). The screen is blank. None of the buttons on the side function (such as ?menu?).

We?ve always (as in years) left the monitor on (w/ a screen saver) but for whatever reason turned it off for four days when we went away recently. The monitor would then not turn back on.

Gateway laptop Hello. I have a Gateway laptop model W340ua or MT3419 I'm not sure which. I put my laptop on sleep and closed it. About 3hrs later I opened it back up and there was a black screen. I tried to reboot by turning power off but when I pushed the power button to turn the laptop back on, it doesn't come on. There's no "power" indicator lighting up as it normally does. Please help. Thank you.
