You would have to open up your laptop. its located on your motherboard. If you are not familiar with cracking open a laptop, I don't recommend it to you.

I have a windows 8 gateway laptop(NE71B Series) and its seems as if my wifi switch is disable. Anyone with a bit of advice on how to resolve this problem would be very helpful.


Recently had a coworker bring me a Gateway NE71B laptop.
Complaint: No wireless even using a VZW 4GLTE hotspot.
Observations:
; All drivers and devices are functional with no errors or conflicts.
; Wireless adapter has power and is not in Airplane mode.
; No wireless networks are visible even though there are normally as many as 12 networks available within the area.
; Wired Ethernet adapter works without issues.
Solution:
Turns out the BIOS was v2.05. After updating the BIOS to v2.13, wireless connectivity is functional. All locally available wireless networks (SSIDs) are visible.

Notes of caution:
; A failed BIOS update will invalidate your warranty per Gateway chat support rep.
; Ensure you have a fully charged battery before updating the BIOS.
; Ensure your AC adapter is plugged in and functional prior to starting the BIOS updater.

Trying to enter BIOS on Gateway 7330GZ and it is requesting a password on a old dos type screen


To reset the bios you must clear the CMOS

There are two ways to approach forcing the Bios/CMOS to be reset to its default values: Option #1: Mechanically, by removing all power to the Bios/CMOS thereby forcing it to reset itself to its stored defaults, which include no password or the default password employed by the Bios manufacturer, and Option #2: Using a program to either locate and identify the password and reveal it to you or erasing the password entirely. These are referred to as password by-pass utilities or cracks.

Let's look at Option #1
By either resetting a jumper on the motherboard itself (referred to as a "clear CMOS" jumper), or by physically remove the power from the computer (disconnecting the power plug) and then removing a battery (used to maintain power to the PROM chip that contains the Bios/CMOS information) from the motherboard.

If the "Clear CMOS" jumpers are not present or not available:
Shut down the computer and disconnect the power plug. Locate, if possible, the instruction booklet for your motherboard. Now identify where the battery is located on the motherboard. It will be approximately 1/2 inch in diameter.Leave the battery our of the computer for about 20 to 30 minutes and then return it to its socket. Now plug the power cord back in and restart the computer.

I cannot find mY COMPUTER gATEWAY SNID?


The serial number is located on the right hand side of the desktop tower near the bottom of the side panel on a white label with a 22 character serial number. On older systems the serial number may be located on the back or bottom of the case.The same white label will be located to the back side if its a laptop.You can also find it on the BOX.For 2010 laptop,it will also inside tha Battery Bay.


For desktops that shipped with the Microsoft® Windows® 7 Operating System, Acer provides an application entitled Identity Card, which can be used to display the serial number for your desktop.

To launch the Identity Card software:

  1. From the Start menu, click All Programs.
  2. Click on the Gateway folder.
  3. Click on Identity Card.

Alternatively, the serial number will be located in the BIOS which can be entered by pressing the Delete key /F2 key when turning the desktop on.
