Question about Gateway 450SX4 Notebook
I need to tear down this old gateway select 450 and need to know to get a service manual of some kind can anyone find a site where i can find this
I have the same computer and I have kept my old user manual. I looked in the book and there are several phone numbers which contact Gateway technical support. A general number is (USA) 1-800-846-2118. This is an automated menu system, and you can only use your telephone keypad. There is a fax on demand menu of catalogs which contains documents on common problems. If you can find the document you need, it will be faxed to you. That number is 800-846-4526.
Gateway also has a tech support line which you can call if you have a problem which doesn't requrie a tutorial-based solution. That number is 800-846-2301. If all else fails, you can call Gateway for fee-based software assistance (note the word SOFTWARE). This is the call of last resort, it's expensive, but here it is, just in case: 800-229-1103 (billed to your credit card by the minute).
Good luck! If you are Canadian, there are different numbers. The manual that came with your computer is available on CD if you do a simple search, but (as you probably know), it doesn't go into much detail. Gateway does that for a reason--they make money off of repairs, and it's too easy to make a mistake if you repair a computer yourself. Helpful hint--if/when you DO repair ANYTHING (not just computers), take a quick digital photograph (including a close-up) of each and every step. That way, you'll have a record of what you did that is visual; it doesn't hurt to write down what steps you took, either. Between the written and the visual, you'll have a better chance of fixing the problem, and then returning the computer to the state from which you started. Viva digital cameras!!

A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
The service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
