    Here's the problem -
    4 year old Gateway laptop, LCD went dark suddenly (could just make out screen in certain light.)
    I figured out it was the inverter, order a new one, and installed it.
    Hooray, everything worked fine. Bright clear screen.
    I'll say here that the drive was wiped, so when it boots it boots to "No OS found."
    Booted it up and left it alone for it to charge battery. Sat for 1/2 hour with no problem with "No OS found" bright and clear.
    Re-booted to begin install of OS and it lit up, showed 'No OS found" for 60 seconds, and then goes completely black, not even faint.

    So I can't tell now if this inverter went, backlight is shot, or ????
    Since it starts every time bright and clear I have no idea. It just goes black 60 seconds after I turn it on.

    Any help would be appreciated.
