    I have a Gateway NV52 laptop and anytime I attempt to turn it on the lights (power & battery lights) & fan both come on, but nothing appears on the screen. I had this problem about a week ago and took to a local repair shop and they seemed to have fixed it (they said something inside just needed to be reseated). I got it back on Friday and worked both great Friday & Saturday, however as of today its doing the same thing again. At this point I have no idea what the problem could be and I am at my wits end.

    Can you see anything at all on the screen even fainty? (try shinning a flashlight on it) Hook up another monitor. This will eliminate problems with the screen itself.

    I took it back to the repair place since they have a 30 day warranty & they think i most likely the power switch causing the problem.
