I just bought a Gateway MT6451 with a broken lcd. Ordered a new one, installed it and nothing. So I put the old one back in and that works. So I decide to test the inverter and backlight, both work. I then unlug the broken display backlight but leave the video cable hooked to the bad display, hook the new display's backlight to the inverter. power up... backlight works...so while the laptop is on I unplug the broken lcd video cable and plug it into the new one...it worked. But only till I reboot. I did it like 6 time and it worked that way each time. Oh and the vga and svideo ports work also.I tried the function keys no video at all, no image on screen. As far a s the model numbers they are suppose to be compatible. both are LTN154X3, but my original read LTN154X3-L03 and the new one is LTN154X3-L0D. Anyone know why its not turning my new lcd on?
