Unplug and remove the battery pack for safety. DOn't want any shorts to happen. With the laptop open, gently pry with a very small blade the plastic cover at the front of the swivel and remove. It is in two pieces...front and back. It is OK to leave the rear half in place. Once removed you must close the laptop again. You will now have access to the screws on the hinges. Use a small Robertson screwdriver to tighten the screws. Snap the cover back in place....Voila!. IF the screws are broken (like mine were) remove all the good screws, gently lift and move the screen slightly forward, remove the broken screws with some needle nose pliers. Reassemble with new screws. I found some screws at the local computer geek shop in his selection of random screws. THey are quite tiny. CHeck Future Shop if they are in your area as they deal and repair Gateway so you may have a better chance of finding some screws that work. Good Luck.

Why does the 4WD in part time wheel hop when turning but in full time 4WD doesnt do it on a jeep grand cherokee with select track & what is up with that death wobble


Hop when turning generally is caused by a bad (binding)axle joint on the wheel end.
Death wobble is most often traced to worn ball joints but can also be caused by worn tires, excessive play in any of the attachment arm bushings in the front end, worn (oblong) suspension to frame mount holes, or a steering box tearing away from the chassis. Sometimes it is a combination of excessive play in more than one item working together. Careful diagnosis (hands-on examination) is the only way to find and correct it.
Most often the steering stabilizer (sideways shock on steering linkage) is blamed for wobble but in reality it can be damaged by the wobble but nearly never causes it.

Freezes during playback


Hi. What I am trying to establish from my last question is whether the laser has become heat sensitive or whether there is a bit of dust buildup on the spindle table that might be causing the disc to have excessive wobble.
If the disc has excessive wobble, then the machine will have trouble tracking the outer tracks and will constantly skip as you have described after say 30 to 45 minutes.
If the laser has become heat sensitive then the same problem could potentially occur - The only difference being that if you were to restart the movie at that point, then the skipping would continue even at the beginning of the movie.
The first problem (wobble) is easy to fix - Clean the spindle table, the second problem may render the unit uneconomical to repair.

Gateway CX2620 Swivel Screen Laptop


This is the worst solution I've ever heard. This guy is trying to steer you wrong I'm pretty sure. There is zero point in removing all the screws from under the batter/ zero point to removing the area around the power button. Absolute BS. The only part to remove is the part just above the top of the keyboard (silver strip with some black). Then by removing that you can pry the swivel black plastic cover off. Whatever you do.. do not follow Scott's writeup here. I'm telling you. It's sad it's stayed up so long.. so had to warn.
