I have the same laptop and have had to take it apart completely a couple times. Luckily to get at the power button is fairly easy. On the bottom of the laptop there are 4 screws towards the back, take out the middle two (they'll be long ones). Now flip over the laptop, open the lid and using a flat headed screw driver you want to pry the plate with the power button, etc. along the top of the keyboard off (it just clips in, those two screws were holding it down). Under that plate will be a small chip that has a ribbon cable going to the motherboard. My ribbon cable recently got broken so I'm working on figuring out a method for powering it on now.

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,

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,

Clock resetting and power button malfunctioning on my Gateway NV53A laptop.


Replace the CMOS battery. In the Control Panel, Power Options, set to High Performance, open Advanced power settings, set Sleep and Hibernate to Never, Adjust other settings to your preference. Set Screen Saver Time. Always turn off the computer and unplug when not in use, it will prolong life and a reboot every day will reset the computer. I would say you have a issue with the outlet connections/plug. If you have a multimeter you can verify.

MT6707 Widescreen Notebook PC (1014360R) PC Notebook: I WANT TO RESTORE A USED GATEWAY MT6707 BACK TO FA...


You can restore the computer back to factory default,to do so, follow the below steps:
Turn Off the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction. NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.

If the above mentioned steps are not working then you need an RCD to do so. Contact the Gateway support.

My Gateway 4542GP just shuts down and restarts while I'm using it. but everything works well it just all of a sudden just shuts down and restarts..HELP ME PLEASE


Sounds like it might be overheating
best thing i can suggest is, get a few small blocks, about 4,
put 2 on the left and 2 on the right under the laptop so that laptop is off the surface and the bottom of it has space to air out, keeping it cool
should look something like this under the laptop
_ _
| | | |
| | <empty space> | |
_ _

another problem is that you may have Trojans or viruses lurking around, i suggest using AVG and Spybot Search and Destroy, run scans with both of these

also make sure that your power supply isnt getting too hot as well, it may not be providing your laptop with best power, causing it to crash

tell us how you go, post your scan results if all else hasnt worked

Gateway MX7315 Will not power up.


Check the connection between your the power bezel (the plastic piece with the power button) and the motherboard. This has a tendency to come loose whenever you take laptops apart.

Gateway MT6451 Does not turn on


leaving your unit in standby mode is not a problem as long as your ac adapter is plugged in to your ac outlet and to your pc. otherwise, you will have a drained battery. try removing your battery for a few minutes and then insert it back in then plug your ac adapter to your wall outlet and to your pc and leave it without starting your pc. notice the small pilot light at front edge of your laptop, it should be yellowish/orange. wait until this light turns green then you can try turning on your pc.
