The power button in my Gateway laptop MT6451 got pushed it can't be accessed from the top. How can it be accessed from the button?


Quite easily Sergio

The plastic Power On button you see, presses against a carbon button Power On switch, below it.

I suggest removing the Switch Cover, and then you can access the Power On switch's carbon button, and press it down to turn the laptop on.

You can also, then see about repairing the Power On button assembly, or replace the Switch Cover.

1) Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter {Charger}, and Battery.

2) Laptop closed, laid on it's top; Bottom side up.
Turn it so you are looking down in the Battery Compartment, where the Battery was......

Down in the Battery Compartment are 4 Philips head screws to remove. You need the smaller No.1 Philips screwdriver, or the equivalent Jewelers screwdriver.

Here is the Base Enclosure, (Bottom Cover), not installed on the laptop,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/39MA7BATA10-Gateway-MA3-MT6451-Bottom-Case-Cover-39MA7BATA10-Genuine-/321101430142?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4ac322fd7e

There are 4 views. The page automatically opens, with a Bottom view, and the Battery Compartment at the top.

SET, your mouse cursor in the middle of the photo. This allows the Zoom In feature.
Go to the top where the Battery Compartment is, and view the 4 holes going along the Top.

This shows you where the 4 screws to be removed are.

Same design, different Gateway notebook,

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/remove-keyboard-from-gateway-mt6704-model-ma7/

Go to the third photo down. Has two screws circled in Red.
I just want you to look at the Battery Compartment. (Not the red circled screws)

Look under the whitish - www.InsideMyLaptop.com -
You can see the first two screws pretty visibly. Almost make out the 3rd one, no to the 4th screw.

Once these 4 screws are removed, turn the laptop over.
Open the laptop.

Now you are going to remove the Switch Cover.

In the above link scroll down to the 5th photo, and 6th photo.

This video also shows you,

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KjOVOLOW1Hc

From 0:45 to 0:47
Please use care when removing, it is plastic.
The video has been sped up.

This is a look at the Switch Cover removed,

CMOS battery gateway t-1625


Remove the keyboard and the media button panel.
Remove all the screws from the underside of the laptop.
Remove the access panels.
Remove the hard drive.

There are three screws that holds the chassis together here (inside the hard drive bay). You won't be able to completely open the chassis but now you can use a flat blade (I used a small flat head screw driver) and pry the top and bottom pieces apart.

As I mentioned, you won't be able to completely take the two chassis pieces apart but you will now have enough clearance to access the CMOS battery to the right of the headphone jack (looking at the bottom).

I used a small flat head to pop the battery out. I then used long tweezers to place the new 1220 battery on the battery tray and reached around from the hard drive bay and popped it in with my index finger.

Put everything back together in the order you took it apart.

I have a Gateway T-6330u notebook. I have had problems with the battery cord before where it plugs into the computer. A piece broke off from the battery cord and was stuck in the computer. I talked with...


Seems more like a problem with the power receptacle where you plug the power cord into the laptop.In order to fix this problem, you will need to disassemble the unit to get access to the motherboard & replace the power receptacle with a good one.

How to take apart gateway laptop mt3418


There is no good way to tell you except with a video.
Get a few pieces of Styrofoam to put the screws into. One for the bottom, one for the top, one for misc.

  • Flip the laptop upside down. Remove all the screws, and batteries, doors etc.
  • Flip the laptop right side up and open the screen open completely
  • Remove the power button/hinge panel (snaps off with a screw driver)
  • Unscrew the keyboard 3-5 screws and it removes
Notice how all ribbon cables disconnect.
  • Unscrew the hinges from the bottom portion and disconnect the cables careful to notice the routing.
  • The upper part of of the case separates from the lower using a knife or small screwdriver. Watch remaining screws
That is about it. Put back together asap. Order the parts you need BEFORE you dis-assemble.

Replacing Power Button Circuit Card on Gateway W730 K8X Laptop


The instructions for replacing the keyboard include the cover you have to remove to replace the power button pcb. The power button pcb is attached to the bottom of the bezel that covers the hinges/button array. In a nutshell you just remove the 2 screws indicated in the instructions, pry the hinge covers up a bit, then gently pry the bezel up from the bottom. remove the ribbon cable, pull back the small piece of tape, remove the three small screws holding the pcb on, and remove it from the spring clips.

Lgateway laptop won't power on


Your computer works fine. Its just a little plastic tab that has broken off of the power button. Bad design! The power button doesn't sit right about the power switch. The broken tab makes the switch. The button is directly about the LED light. You have to remove the power button panel (Your user manual will instruct you on that) and then you can rig something where the plast tab was or just remove the circuit board from the panel and just power it on with your finger on the circuit board. No risk of shock. Well it hasn't gotten me yet :o) There's only two screws that you have to remove from the back of the computer to remove the panel and keep in mind that the top hinge covers are part of the power button panel so you have to gently loosen those with a little screw driver as well.

Gateway 503gr power switch


if you are a practical person, the power on switch is the crudest item ever on a pc. The switch simply completes a circuit. If you look on you motherboard at the front panel connector cables, you will see the two that go to the power on switch. remove them, flash a small screw driver across the terminals and it will come to life

Gateway 400SD4 LCD Cable #DD00A6LC609


Remove the screen by taking the plastic cover around the screen off, the screws are hidden behind the small rubber bumpers. Once the plastic is off, there will be four screws holding the screen in place, remove those and the screen will pull forward, then you will see where the lcd ribbon connects to the screen. Disconnect it and set it to the side. Now you will need to remove the plastic piece at the top of the keyboard in order to get to where the ribbon connects to the board. You may need to remove the keyboard in order to remove this piece, and there may or may not be screws holding this piece in place. Pay close attention and go slowly, these should come apart rather easily unless there is a screw holding them.
