Hi stealthsand,

I would suggest you locate your local computer fix-it shop, Geek Squad(watch these guys they try to make a fortune out of every sale.)They should have the screws you need. I hope this helped.

Thanks for using FixYa.com

Sincerely, cyyyd7

I replace the screen on my gateaway mt 6916 and cant install the video controler driver


Instructions

1

Prepare the laptop for disassembly. Shut down the laptop completely, then wait a few minutes before removing the battery and unplugging the AC adapter. Turn the laptop over and lay it down on a flat surface so that the battery area is facing away from you and the hard drive is located at the bottom left corner.
2

Remove the hard drive cover. Remove the two screws located on the left side of the hard drive cover, then lift the cover to remove it completely from the unit.
3

Remove the memory cover. Unscrew the eight screws holding the memory board in place; this cover is located above the Gateway product sticker.
4

Disconnect the Wi-Fi adaptor. Remove the Wi-Fi cover by unscrewing the single screw holding the Wi-Fi adapter in place; this is located directly above the hard drive. Remove the two cables connecting the wireless card to the adapter and snap the card out of the holder.
5

Remove the memory modules. Gateway computers typically have two memory modules located in the center of the motherboard; lift these out gently with your fingers and set them aside.
6

Release the heat sink. Unscrew the four screws around the heat sink assembly; this unit is located to the left of the ventilation fan and is surrounded by a copper base. Carefully lift the heat sink and the cooling fan off the unit and unplug the cable attaching it.
7

Remove the CD/DVD drive. Unscrew the small screw located to the left of the CD/DVD drive, then push the drive out to remove it from the laptop completely.
8

Remove all screws around the base of the laptop. You will now be left with a total of 18 screws located around the edge of the base of the laptop, and in between the stickers and hardware components in the center. Remove all of these carefully and set aside in a safe place.
9

Prepare the cover for removal. Turn the laptop up on its edge so that the back of the laptop is facing you; you will see two screws on the hinges of the computer. Unscrew these and set them aside.
10

Remove the hinge cover. Open the laptop so that the screen is laying flat; use the flathead screwdriver to pry open the hinge cover and pull it off gently with your fingers.
11

Remove the keyboard. Lift up the keyboard and reach behind it to release the cable. You will need to tug gently on the cable to unhook it from the motherboard.
12

Unhook the LCD screen from the notebook. Unplug the Wi-Fi antenna cables located on the right side of the motherboard directly under the screen, then unplug the video cable located directly under the hinge cover. Remove the pair of screws located to the left and right of the LCD screen and gently lift the LCD screen off the notebook's base unit.
13

Remove the system board. Turn the base unit over and unscrew the five screws securing the motherboard to the base. Two of these are located near the hinge cover, and two are located beneath and to the right of the hard drive unit. The fifth is located a few inches below the top right edge of the laptop.
14

Disconnect the motherboard. Lift the system board, then unhook the cable connecting it to the base unit.

Need to install memory on a veriton Z290G desktop but dont know how to open the computer


1 Turn off your computer and all the peripherals connected to it before
opening it. Then unplug all cables from the power outlets.

2 Place your computer on a flat, steady surface. If your computer is in the

vertical position, rotate the plastic stabilizers and lay your computer on its

side.

3 Turn the screws counterclockwise to release the cover.

4 Hold the sides of the cover with both hands.
5 Slide it back about an inch and then gently lift it upward to detach it.

6 Remove the side panel.

7 Locate the memory DIMM socket on the mainboard.

8 Press the holding clips on both sides of the memory DIMM socket outward

to release the memory DIMM (a). Gently pull the memory DIMM out of the
socket (b).

9 Align the memory DIMM with the socket. Press the memory DIMM into
the socket until the clips lock onto the memory DIMM.

The memory DIMM sockets are slotted to ensure proper

installation. If you insert a memory DIMM but it does not fit easily

into the socket, turn the memory DIMM around and try to insert it
again.

10 Align the cover's hinges to the housing frame; then gently push it in to

slide it back into place.
11 Secure the cover with the screws.

I have a gateway zx4800-03 and I need to know how to remove the hard drive to put in a new one


I removed one on a Gateway ZX4800-02. Remove two screws by the usb ports on the back. then remove the plastic piece covering the usb ports on the back. This will expose the HDD. Now to make it easier. remove the four screws holding the support bracket and remove support bracket. remove the three screws holding the HDD located up, right, and left. Now disconnect the HDD cable by pull it to the right by the connector. DO NOT PULL THE CABLES. My friend does that by habit all the time and it drives me crazy.

HDD should come out easy. Just remove the metal cage covering the HDD and Replace. Reverse order for reassembly.

Now does anyone know how to get off the damn front bezel!>!!?!?!?!? I can't figure it out.

Gateway tablet TB120 It ahs a noisy fan thats disruptive in class. I need directions to access fan so maybe it can be lubbed/.


i dont know if you can do tha by yourself but it might only be a cable that pass through where the fan blows through that affect it and cause that noise and in other case the processor fan might be having some damage in which cause that noise ok.
Have a screwdriver that can screw out the screws then turn the laptop upside down at the buttom screw out the holes carrying a keyboard symbol and from there you will screw out the four screw corner holding the case from there you will lift up the casing as if to pull up then turn over the system and remove the keyboard softly then there is a plain cable holding the keyboard then remove the keyboard clip gently and open the casing after that you will find the processor fan from there trace whatever may cause it to make the noise if you cant then you willl replace the processor fan ok.that is it then follow the procedure you use in opening to couple back the system ok.
Rate this solution.

My hinge screws are broke on my display on my Presario 730US laptop. I can't find any documentation on how to get to the screws


basically the same way I fixed my daughters laptop. I found 2 screws holding the button cover in place, then gently prying it popped out which gave me access to the screws. The screws on this laptop holding the hinges are torx screws, where as my daughters newer HP laptop was all phillips screws.

I need to replace my LCD screen. How do I find instructions to replace it?


if it is for a laptop and not desktop as this category is listed under, then you might want to have a service technician replace it. If you really want to go for it, here's some steps for a Toshiba M40:
step one: remove the two screws by the screen hinges, then prise the front panel off, it will simply clip out.

Step Two: remove the two upper screws holding the screen cradle to the back panel.

Step Three: Pull the back panel away from the screen cradle, close the lid most of the way and you should be able to just pull it apart, then remove the cradle screws.

Step Four: remove the screen cable from the back, followed by the lower cable. Done.

6 tiny screws hold the screen in its cradle
2 larger ones hold the cradle to the back plate
2 (Same size) hold the front panel on.

If I'm way off base, then I need to know more info such as the model. If this is for a desktop computer, then you just get a new one and connect it up exactly as the old one is currently connected.

Hp pavilion dv5000 laptop screen distortion


Same here. However mine is a toshiba satellite. Starts fine but after a minute or two its like watching tv in the 60s all sorts of white lines distort the screen. So i took the back off and removed all of the screws for the sceen around the top and bottom. Just the ones that mount it to the cover. By applying pressure to certain parts i managed to narrow it down and after about 10 attempts at ptting it all back together i did it with 2 screw missing in the top left hand corner and low and behold it seems to work fine. I am thinking that over time maybe some of the mouldings expand and maybe apply pressure onto the back of the screen and start to cause problems. I am not saying this is a cure for all but it certainly worked for me. Good Luck.

Need to disassemble gateway 8708 laptop to replace the lcd panel


If u've never opened one before, it is very complicated, be very gentle.
Different size screws for areas of laptop. After screws removed, the keyboard and shield have to be removed to get to the screen connectors and hinge screws.
If u don't mind taking a chance in destroying ur laptop. try it and learn. The laptop is assembled in layers.
Be careful and good luck.
