You need to provide a serial number of your computer and model. gp7800 does not say much to lookup that information for you.

in general most towers are secured with plastic tabs that are secured to the chasis of your system. what i suggest is for you to open on of the side panels and check at the back of the front panel if there are tabs securing your front panel. you don't want to force the plastic panel or those tabs as you may brake them if you apply to much force, simply move the tab to unsecure it and check all the tabs had been moved to an unlock position before jiggling with the part in order to remove it... you may also want to look if your system has a top pannel to be removed as removing this top pannel may also release other panels and may also provide acess to latches or tabs on the top part of the front panel that may allow you to unsecure these portion.

I've been trying to obtain general information on your system or any other gateway tower for you to have an idea but given how generic and also how propriatery this instructions may be is unlikely a service manual may be accessible.

with more info on your system you may want to inquire with gateway if there's a service manual with schematics by checking with them online. at this location.

Need to replace double layer dvd +-rw burner in my Gateway 838 GM. Will the curved front be a problem ?


Hi,
You will have no problem at all replacing the DVD/RW, you may however have to pop the front off the tower, you do this by pulling on the front bottom of the unit and the cover should pop off, the DVD itself will unscrew from the case.




Good luck

Removing cover on gateway 300


This a tower right? I don't have a gateway but I have a dell and a compaq tower they come apart pretty much the same way. The left side panel slides out by pulling from the back. Some may have a screw or two you have to loosen or take out. Then you can either slide it by pulling from the back or there could be a latch that you slide to unlock it. Wow I can't believe it 60 bucks. Just keep messing with it you'll figure it out!
