I have a Gateway Notebook that is 4 years old and is running Vista Basic and I was working on it a little while ago and all of a sudden the screen went black. The computer was still on but the screen is black. So, I turned off the computer and then restarted it. It came on for a second and blinked the name and then went black again. I unplugged it and then tried again but nothing. The strange thing is that my roomates computer which is a 5 years old Toshiba laptop running XP did the same thing a couple of days ago and we still cannot get that one to work either. It is too much of a coincidence that they both went black within a couple of days of each other.
If anyone out there has any idea what might be going on here, Please Help!
