I don't have and couldn't find a service manual for this model. You might try one of these links for a similar model. All laptops have the same basic design, so breakdown is relatively the same. Just go slow, and be careful. Keep in mind that some parts snap into place and may hold a little tighter than other parts due to the snap connection, but nothing will be extremely tight, so DO NOT force anything. If something feels like it's to tight, then most likely you missed a screw. There are several inconspicuous screws.

I have lowrance lms-335c and the power sock on the monitor has a few pins that have broken off. Do you know how to change out the socket?


The Unit is easy to dissassemble. If you know how to solder you can acquire replacement pins from radio shack and attempt to replace the pins. Another option would be to acquire entire parts unit off Ebay and swap out the entire socket. this would be something for someone with some soldering experience.

Motherboard model troubleshooting


troubleshoot motherboard


Back up everything possible on your hard drive.

If you're experiencing hardware issues, this is a luxury you might not have.


Keep backup files on an alternate data storage system to avoid data loss during hardware problems.


Notice the issue and reproduce it so you're aware of where the symptom manifests itself.

Isolate the problem.


If the system isn't getting power, make sure it's not the power cord or wall outlet before you try a different motherboard.


If everything is trying to run but not actually able to, check for loose parts on the motherboard before you replace it.


Remove all of the hardware that isn't actually necessary to make the computer function before you can narrow down the causes for your problem to the motherboard.


Ensure that all cards and memory units installed on your motherboard are securely in place and that each is making a good connection.

This can be accomplished by removing each component, blowing out the socket with compressed air and replacing the components.


Try another compatible motherboard in your machine once you've eliminated all other potential problems.

If it works with the alternate motherboard, replace the old one.


hope this helps

My motherboard for my laptap MX6025 was damage, now I am replacing them for a new one and would order via online. How do I install this to my windows xp, what requirements do i need such as drivers,...


If your hard drive is still working fine, you shouldn't need to reinstall Windows again. Most of the time your PC will perform as it did before your motherboard died by simply reinstalling the original hard drive.
If not then do this.
Reinstall windows with your restore CD, and with most gateway laptops you should have a drivers and applications CD that restores your motherboard drivers and applications to their original locations.

If you lost your drivers CD, you can download them all here.

http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/search.asp?st=pn&param=5376

When asked, you should allow XP updates so that Service Pack 3 can install. This will add a few windows based drivers to your laptop that may be necessary for better video, audio and wireless performance.

Your restore CD may not ask for your CD Key, this is typical for a Vendors original restoration, but if for some reason it does, the number on the back of your laptop will work. Mine validated just fine.

Power socket for sony vaio is broken how do I


On a Sony, many times the power socket is a separate piece that can be replaced. Unlike many laptop motherboards, these power sockets are a separate item the plug into the motherboard. \

Bad news is you have to dissassemble the computer to get at it.

Is it very difficult to change timer in my dryer?


Hi,

You need to obtain a replacement unit or compatable from an appliance service dealer. Then it's just a matter of disassembling the control panel and disconnecting the old switch, removing it, and replacing and reconnecting the new unit. If you're wonder how to disassemble the control panel to accomplish this the process is very common sense oriented. At most all you'll need is a 5\16th nut driver or socket, a philips head screwdriver, and a pair of needle nose pliers. JUST MAKE SURE THE MACHINE IS UNPLUGGED BEFORE YOU START.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

3 beeps


Please Try this :-

:- Perform each of the following tasks, in order, until the beeping stops. Before starting each task, unplug the power cord and remove the side panel. After completing a task, replace the side panel, connect the power cord, turn on the computer, and ()listen for a beep code. NOTE: If removing or disconnecting a hardware component prevents the beep code, that component is probably causing the problem. However, a failed motherboard might produce beep codes associated with a component other than the motherboard.
Clean cooling components that have become clogged with dust. If beeping continues, continue to the next step.
Remove a memory module.
If the computer stops beeping, the memory module might be bad, is the wrong type of memory for the motherboard, or was not fully seated or connected. Reinsert the memory into the socket to see if a connection was the problem; otherwise replace the module.
Remove each memory module, replacing the one that was previously removed. If beeping continues after checking all the memory modules, continue to the next step.
If the computer has a graphics adapter, remove it.
If the beep code changes or continues with the same beep pattern after removing the graphics adapter, the adapter might still be good. Reseat the graphics adapter into its socket and continue to the next step.
If the beep code goes away, the graphics adapter might be bad. Try reseating the graphics adapter, making sure it is fully locked into the connector on the motherboard. If problems continue, replace the adapter.
Remove a PCI card.
If the beep code goes away, the card might be bad. Try reseating the card into its connector on the motherboard. If problems continue, replace the card.
Remove each PCI card, replacing the one that was previously removed. After checking all cards, if beeping continues, continue to the next step.
Disconnect hard drives and CD or DVD drive cables (IDE and ATA) from the motherboard socket.
If the beep code goes away, the cable or socket is probably bad. Look for bent pins inside the IDE socket on the motherboard and straighten any bent pins. Try reseating the cables into the connectors. If problems continue, the drive itself might be bad and might need replacing.
Disconnect each drive cable, replacing the one that was previously disconnected, until all have been checked. After checking all connections, if beeping continues, continue to the next step.
At this point, the problem is probably the motherboard or processor. Make sure any jumpers on the motherboard have not fallen off their pins and into the case.

Power socket needs replacing on motherboard


Are you refering to the multisocket on the motherboard coming from the power supply or the 110 volt socket into the back of the power supply from the outside? PC or laptop?
