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.

My gateway mx6025 is displaying no battery is detected and it can only charge when it off, I thought it was the battery, but since i charge it for over two days, it display 100% charge on the battery...


First, you need to make sure your power adapter is providing enough power to both run the laptop & charge the battery. A very good way to do this is to compare your laptop voltage & ampere requirements (written on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop) with the voltage & ampere ratings of the power adapter. Voltages should be the same, or the power adapter's voltage about up to 0.5 volts more than the laptop's voltage rating. Amperage of the power adapter should be at least equal to or greater than the laptop's rating. It should never be less than the laptop's rating, or else the power adapter will be providing insufficient amperes to charge the battery. Of course, the power adapter's nominal amperage might be ok, but it degraded on usage. You can verify this by testing using a good or new power adapter.
If the battery did not charge using the new power adapter, take the battery off the laptop, & using a dry tooth brush, scrub in between the fins of the battery connector on the motherboard & on the battery it self, then put the battery back into the laptop & try again.
If this still did not resolve the problem, then the battery itself could be bad. Try it on another laptop, or try a good or new battery in your laptop.
If this did not work, there might be a possibility that the charging circuitry on the laptop's motherboard is defective & needs servicing. In order to do this, the laptop needs to be disassembled & the motherboard checked for defective/burned out components in the area near the DC jack. Any defective/burned out components found should be replaced, or you might need to replace the laptop's motherboard altogether

I'm replacing a fan and thermal unit


No, not necessarily the entire unit. Once you remove the chassis cover, the harddrive, optical drive & its fan, then you will see that the processor is covered with the heat sink or another term for it is thermal unit. You will not remove the entire motherboard of this laptop since the thermal unit is placed above the processor wherein the processor is placed at the center part of the motherboard. Another option is you can go to acer.com for manuals or you can call the acer tech support for more tech assistance

Won't power up; replaced batter, won't charge


If under warranty, get repaired by manufacturer. Usually no power points to the power socket in the unit where the wall plug/power supply plugs in. Could also have a blown fusible link, bad charging components on the motherboard, etc. If you are handy, you could remove the screen,keyboard and shell and examine the motherboard, check continuity in the power socket. Look for burn chips, cold solder joints, etc. Cheap replacement parts and even repair services can be found on Ebay.

How to reset bios password on e machines e627


I just got done resetting the password on the emachines e627. I ended up dissassembling the unit, desoldering the cmos battery from the motherboard, soldering it back on, and reassembling. It booted to windows after this. Repair time: 2 hours. It is a little difficult since I didn't have the repair manuals. The emachine connectors for the keyboard, touchpad, and wireless are fragile at best. After doing it once, I could do it again in 30 minutes.

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.

Put in a branbd new battery. Power adapter is OK.


Your motherboard does not need replacing provided the problem is the power socket on the motherboard.
If the power adapter is OK then connect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/battery charging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's power socket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position this LED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a dry solder joint where it is connected to the motherboard.
This can be repaired but it requires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket and repair. I suggest you get a quote first.

Toshiba Battery Power


It can be fixed but it means removing the original power socket and replacing it with a new one. The socket is usually soldered to the motherboard so the whole laptop has to be dismantled. Most people wouldnt even attempt to repair it and would probably change the motherboard. The socket is available here:
