Having problems with your Gateway 3522GZ Notebook ?
Gateway laptop 3522gz display went "dark" after 2 years.
\015 I can see a bit of an image if the light in the room is just right and I am a couple of inches away from the screen. Not a setting of brightness issue. If I plug in a monitor and switch to it I get a great image. Heard on the web the hard drive connection might be an issue so I powered down removed it , put it back in etc and no go. Bios setting have no affect either. Is the screen dead or there a setting I'm missing?\015
