You have options....#1 send it out to gateway for an arm and a leg...(i have the same model and had the same problem), #2 find a local computer repair store...they will most likely charge about 30 for the part.(that's what i was charged + 60 an hour for labor took 2 hours...) or #3 do it yourself, if you can solder then i can talk you through most of the dis assembly..plus you can get the part remarkably cheaper

A techie told me that the reason my Gateway 7330GZ notebook will not power on is a faulty power distribution IC on the motherboard. The part is impossible to find in my part of the globe (Nairobi, Kenya)...


You need to replace the motherboard. This may not be a cost effective solution.
It may be better to put your money towards a new laptop which will be faster and most likely slightly more than the cost of repairing the Gateway.
You can remove the hard disk from the Gateway and put it into an USB hard drive adapter case and then use it as an external USB hard drive for backups and data transfer.

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.

Laptop will not come on. Indicates that it is connected to power source although it is loose. What should I do? Is it the motherboard or the d/c adapter? I have a Gateway 7330 GZ.


Try another 19volts adapter. If problem still the same and the laptop not powering-on, there's something wrong with the motherboard circuit and not the DC JACK cause it indicates that you connect an adapter.

Gateway 7330gz will only run few seconds then turn off


Remove the battery and run off of the A/C power adapter without the battery installed.

If it works, the battery is just discharged too much. After Windows settles, insert the battery and let it charge.

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.

Gateway 7330GZ- PArts needed


Those cables are custom made for each manufacturer and model. The only place to get a replacement (other than buy a junker on ebay) is from the manufacturer. The plastic pieces are another matter. They are standard connectors and you can buy them from Digikey or Mouser. Soldering them in place is not for a novice. You need a proper soldering iron, desoldering tool, very fine solder and a lot of patience and skill.
