My son bought a Gateway E-machines from Best Buy. It needs a new headphone jack (piece broke off in the jack). Best Buy wants to replace MotherBoard ($382) to fix Headphone jack. Is this really...


The reality is, Best Buy will only swap parts. there are other vendors on the internet that will replace discrete components. Google for "laptop power jack replacement" to find options. it takes decent skills to do this kind of repair, so research well.

I have an older Gateway laptop that I rarely took out of house


you'll have to buy a new but tough to find 2.5'' serial-ATA hard drive, this should solve your problems but you'll have to reinstall any operating system and also all of the data on the current hard drive will be lost.

Difficulty to open cd rom o my pc how to solve?


Repairing your Optical Drive problem isn’t that difficult task.

Unfortunately you have failed to prove the Manufacturer Name and Model Number of your particular specific CD-ROM Optical Drive so I am unaware of what particular specific CD-ROM Optical Drive information to provide.

However if you use Google Search (http://www.google.com) and search the topic Repair CD-ROM you will be able to obtain information on how to disassemble and repair your specific CD-ROM Optical Drive. Examples of a Google Search are provided below ->

http://repair4laptop.org/notebook_op...cd_dvd_mo.html

http://www.repairfaq.org/REPAIR/F_cdfaq9.html

The most difficult part of the repair will be finding the correct size replacement 0-Ring that fits your particular specific CD-ROM Optical Drive. You could try checking with local Computer Repair Shops and see if the have a broken CD/DVD Optical Drive that has the correct size 0-Ring that might work in your particular specific CD-ROM Optical Drive.

On another note now days Optical Drives are inexpensive and you can obtain a replacement CD/DVD Optical Drive for less than 30 bucks.
Hope it helped you. Thanks.

What kind of optical drive uses the gateway 3610gzits sata or ide


Look on this page: Gateway 3610GZ. It's not on the specifications page, as you would expect, but if you go to Components > DVD drives > Main View it says Enhanced IDE (ATAPI) I would double check before buying a new one, though. Just take the drive out. There are usually only 1 or 2 screws holding it in on the bottom, and the drive should slide out the side.

Gateway PC into Antec enclosure?


Hi:
You should be able to transfer your motherboard to the new case, but some things to check before you do:
How do the power switches and front audio/USB connections work for the old gateway? Are they standard or vendor specific? Are the optical drives in the gateway standard, or do they have special fronts on them? I have done what you are wanting to do several times, and often you need to replace OEM optical drives, and sometimes the motherboard headers don't match up with a builder case, so you do the best you can.
