Trying to disassemble a Gateway Laptop

Trying to disassemble a Gateway 7210 Laptop. There are hidden screws under the hinges of the screen but I cannot see how to get at them?

    I need a service manual for a 7210GX so I can disassemble it so that I can replace the power supply jack.



  • Anonymous Jan 23, 2009

    I need to replace the power jack. Is it on the motherboard to the point I would have to replace the whole board? Do you know where I can get a print of how it is imbedded in the computer? A specs manual?



    Thanks,

My gateway M-1634u notebook screen backlight is not functioning are there any repair schematics available?


No, all that's available are disassembly diagrams.Looks like you have a bad "inverter'. Thisis a small circuit board (about 1/2inch by 4 inches) located inside the screens plastic case in the area just above the center of your keyboard. It has two small cables connected to it(one on each end).You'll have to take your screen off the laptop by the hinges and then open the screens plastic case with a small screwdriver.
Opening the laptop enough to get to the screens hinges is usually a job done by experience,since every laptop has a slightly different hinge mechanism and procedure for accessing them.

How can I open the case of gateway solo 2150? I


There is some information on FixYa for this already which can be found at the post below. Generally with a laptop, you'll have some hidden screws under a bezel on the top of the keyboard area. You gently pop this off with a small screwdriver and underneath will be the screws that hold the keyboard in. After removing these, you generally can disassemble the rest of the laptop.

The left hinge on my MX6436 gateway laptop is cracked. How can I fix it?It is split from the screw in the back out to one side and making it difficult to open and close.


If you have to ask "HOW" to disassemble your laptop, in order to remove and replace the hinge, then STOP, and take the computer to a qualified technician, who can safely make the repair.

Unable to remove Gateway m680 Laptop LCD Bezel


I would try just using a little bit more force (not too much!) the bezel will have clips around it to keep it in place along with the screws under the rubber protectors. Also make sure that the bezel doesn't hook in to the hinge cover in any way, as this will prevent it from coming off properly. If it does then pop the hinge covers off before continuing.

Gateway left hinge broke


Definately an easy fix.

I suggest looking on eBay for a donor chassis.
Sometimes they can be had relatively cheap CLICK HERE (this one has both hinges broken however) - and sometimes just the parts you are looking for are available CLICK HERE (this is for the RHS one though).

An entire donor PC is adviseable, because usually the repair is not just the hinge that broke - as the rest of the lid is plastic!

Once the trim above the keyboard is pried off, you will see the monitor cable, and hinge screws.

The trim around the monitor must be dis-assembled and pried into 2 parts.
Then the hinge & Support are either screwed into the side of the screen, or the back of the lid.

Most look like this...

Replace reverse of removal.

HERE is a link that will describe it better and give you a visual reference.
You are interested in step #s 7, 8, 11, 12

Once the screen is free of the chassis - its time to remove the little rubber scerw covers in the lid, and disassemble.

Good Luck!! Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

Opening a Gateway Solo 2150 laptop


I found the answer on another wed site. I tried it on my Gateway Solo 1500 and it works! The extra screws are hidden on top. You carefully remove the small face plate around the power button. I used a very small screw drive to lift it off.

Opening Gateway Solo 1400
by Aelanna - 2/3/05 11:04 AM In reply to: Gateway SOLO 1400 by hunjibunji
I'm also an A+ certified tech, but I've done notebook service for a lot of years. I just finished opening up a Gateway Solo 1400 and it was NOT easy! There are no screws holding the keyboard on the bottom of the machine. You can get the case open about 95% and there will be one area stuck, in the back near where the screen cable goes into the unit. There is a hidden screw on the top of the case next to the hinge. To get to it, you have to remove the two screws that hold the plastic hinge cover and pry off the cover. I only managed to find it after removing the keyboard, the display, and the panel with the LEDs and power button. (The screws holding the keyboard are on the top of the machine, underneath the cover with the power button on it.)
