I've been asked to help figure out a problem for a friends computer. The only issue is, I've never worked with a notebook before, and have keep soley to Desktops. So I'm here for help

It's a 2002[I think] Gateway Solo 1450, and for somereason out of the blue the video output ... well stopped. There is no video even when it's hooked up to an external monitor. I did a little research and know the video is onboard of course, and that someone had a similiar issue and it was fixed by replacing the Inverter Board.

So the question is, is that the problem? Could it be somethign with the powersupply [ since it happened after the battery ran out while he was on it and after it was charged the video was dead], not proper wattage or a short? Or is it just the MB in gernal and should be sent to the graveyard?

Any help is greatly appreicated.

Not sure, but did you try selecting the video output? There is typically a key sequence which changes the video output: screen & video out, screen, video out. If you did not try this, then it could just be that the video output is not turned on.
