Hi I have just repaired my gateway 7330 it has a structure similar to m520s and many other e machines (power jack and battery problem) now it is even charging :O I was about to order jack but just iron soldering worked fine here is step by step I can help anyone through my email, I am living in maine I can even repair for free
you should get the screws out at the back of the pc all the way
take out the harddisk before you start
pop up the two things from the back of the lcd
pop out the power and volume panel
unscrew the keyboard
unscrew the metal panels
(you should take out two cables from wireless adapter before while unscrewing the back side so it wont bother you it is easy to plug and unplug)
lean the lcd all the way back and unscrew underneath the lcd 4 screws
there are still two screws under the lcd area to the left unscrew them if you see them
take out the dvd writer
unscrew any other places that you find on the motherboard
there is a lean point(the metal long thing screwed to motherboard around beneath the left windows key take it out too)
take the card reader out by unscrewing 2-3 screws
thats all I remember
after unscrewing and taking all the pieces out
try to pull the mainboard from microphone speaker input
(unscrew any other remaining screws if you feel any pressure)
with a screwdriver try pulling from the input and the left of the keyboard pull the mainboard but be careful
create a little space that you can work with the dc input
the most inportant ones are the two in the middle
try to concentrate on the one that wore most
take the old solder out by your soldering gun or whatever
and then put new ones in carefully
put all the stuff back (whenever I do it I almost always have afew more screws than I am supposed to whatever it works)
be careful pulling the keyboard cable and other similar cables (they have a bed which can be opened dont just pull it) pull the bed upwards and open it and then take it out do the opposite when putting it all back
thats all no matter what other people say I love this pc I love p4s
gateway is better than ok (you should have seen my acer)

    Gambitr,
    My LCD display is flickering (and has since day one) and not it is off more than it is on. I think it is a loose or bad ribbon that should be easily fixed. I'm trying to take apart my Gateway 7330GZ and the keyboard seems to be held down by something. What am I missing? Is it a screw or clip? Any help would be great.
    Thank you.

Replacing laptop hinges


There are 2 set of cable that run from the display to the monitor, be very careful with it. In most cases, to remove these cables you need to disassemble the whole laptop. Now, since you are on Y changing the hinges, I think you can do it, just don't pull on the monitor too hard, and it needs to be place on a flat surface very close to the laptop. It's not that hard, you just need to be careful, that's all.

Here is a video on how to open the monitor on a Gateway notebook, although if the switch isn't working anymore I assume there is a part of it broken inside and you might need a replacement.

Can someone provide me online recovery disk of gateway 7330gz


You must set the boot sequence of the system to cd/dvd rom first which will enable the system to look for booting files in the disc in the first instance.

In your case your system is booting direct from hard disk. Boot sequence can be changed ib the bios setup of your system.

In some laptop models the restore files can be accessed by pressing function keys while system starting.

7330GZ Gateway laptop keyboard doesn't work


There is one thing you can try. Uninstall the drivers for the keyboard from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the keyboard and reinstall the drivers automatically. If this doesn't work, then I'm afraid the Shift key function has failed and the keyboard will need replaced in order to fix it.
