  1. Ok I was wondering if anyone has had a similar problem with a gateway solo. When I turn it on the screen does not turn on right because the screen does not light up unless I give it a few good taps and maybe adjust and fala light I think there may be a loose wire or something but I was wondering if anyone has any idea what wires could be lose. :hotouch:

    If you have to hit it a few times it's definatly a hardware problem, best bet(if it's not in waranty anymore), is to open it up and check the connections.

    Or, what is also might be, does that laptop still work with a magnatic contact for the screen?. Could be this that is cousing you problems.
