Taking Gateway laptops is an easy endeavor. Here is a link to a disassemble of a 3500 series . Basically they all come apart the same.
Hope this helps. Just take your time and remember what screw goes where.
copy and paste the complete link into your browser.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Gateway m350wvn will turn on but it beeps

Usually these beeps are signs of hardware failing inside the unit. Does everything load correctly? Start with removing one stick of RAM at a time to see if the beeps stop, if they continue it may be a bad motherboard.

How to replace Power socket of MX6453 Gateway laptop.?

Generally the power is soldered directly on to the motherboard on a laptop. So for the most part replacing it either means, finding an identical power supply and being really good at soldering, or replacing the motherboard. Either way if you are not very familiar with taking laptops apart, and computers in general, I would recommend you take it to someone who repairs them for a living.

If the laptop is still relatively new....check with Gateway to see if it's under warranty. If it is, they should fix it or replace it for free. If it is beyond warranty, you may find it comes out more expensive to fix, than just buying a new laptop.

Good Luck

I need to replace the monitor swivel on my Gateway CX2618. I need instructions. Thanks

Try these WEB sites. Use these links.

Hinges for Gateway laptops on the 'net,

Replacing a hinge, or both of them, isn't very tough.
This isn't for a Gateway laptop, granted. But all laptops fall into a general replacement like this.

My Gateway laptop only my back gound screen shows up not my desk


Your screen back light is bad. You need to purchase a new screen and replace it. You can normally find used screens in good condition at sites like this.

Replacing it is straight forward just removing some screws and unplugging it from the Motherboard.

Need to replace the case of a gateway mt3705

Replacing a case is one of the most involved repairs on a laptop because you are basically disassembling the entire thing. You will want to be very careful as there are plastic clips you can break, start by removing the harddrive, the memory door / memory and battery. Take all the screws from the bottom (tape them down on a piece of paper to remember their position, you can write down labels from where they came from. when this is done you should be able to remove the cd drive and lift the keyboard. Remove all the screws from under the keyboard, and remove the ribbon connectors. The upper and lower plastic should snap apart with a little tension. After your inside you can remove the rest of the screws to take out the motherboard. These instructions are generic to most laptops, your should be fairly similar.
