Hi, I have a old gateway notebook that I've had since 2000. It's a Gateway Solo 1450 and I notice that they did have alot of LCD issues, etc. Anyways, my question is.. Whenever I power this bad boy on, it starts up and runs just fine. The monitor on the other hand, just displays black no matter how I have it adjusted. The only way I can get it to display fully is to pretty much shut it until its about 5 inches away from being shut. Anyone know what this sounds like? I've never replaced the LCD or any other the other smaller parts pertaining to it, so im just curious. It's not my "every day" machine, but it is nice to take with me on trips, etc. Any helps, much appreciated!
