Specs: Windows 7, intel i3
When turning on Gateway NV79 laptop, only the top half of the screen is visible and compressed. The other half is black but I do see some scratchy movement in the black.

Try an external monitor to determine if the issue is the GPU or the laptop screen.

I took the battery out and reinserted it. I then hooked it up to a VGA monitor and when I turned it back on, it loaded the full screen. I'm not sure if it wasn't a good connection or a software problem but its resolved... Thanks for your help!
