    Notebook Monitor Flashing

    Recently the monitor on my year old Gateway Notebook has started flashing or getting bright then less bright as I am using it. I'm wondering if there are any valid reasons for this to happen (i.e. running too warm)? I use a chill pad to keep it cool. I have only noticed it the last two times I have used it and if there are no good reasons for it happening I want to address it before my service warranty runs out.

    TIA

    Re: Notebook Monitor Flashing

    In that it is more likely to be a hardware problem (possibly the connections from the motherboard to the screen?) than a software problem, I would talk to Gateway's technical support to see if they agree and get it fixed within the warranty...
