Q: my gateway nv78 screen will not light up. you can hear the insides start up but nothing comes on the screen. I tried connecting a separate monitor through the side jack and it flashed on for a second then nothing. someone told me the video card is bad. any ideas?

    You have a hardware problem with your laptop. Many laptops have the video card built right into the main motherboard. You’ll need to contact either Gateway or a local computer repair professional to discuss your options.
