Question about Gateway Media Center 610XL PC Desktop

Disassembly of Gateway 610

The instructions for disassembly of the Gateway 610XL don't
work for the 610. Everything's OK until removing the back.
It cannot come off until the back cover is removed, and since
the object of disassembly is removal of the back cover, it's
a Catch 22 situation. The hinges on the back jam against
the back cover, and it can't be removed until the back is
removed. Can anyone help?

    could you make that any more confusing? I have taken hundreds of computers apart, and could only get to the base tipped up, and connected still with the power supply plugged in so far in that if I unplug it, there is no way I could reach to plug it back in.

I need to know what graphics card to use to update


The Gateway 610 uses an AGP graphics slot so any video card with AGP hookup should work fine. The link below is to a parts site for this computer.

I would then suspect the monitor.
Sounds like the video card is working.
Try another monitor to see for sure.

How do I change the video card in my 610XL PC?


After the side of the case is opened and the computer unpluged and the video to the monitor unplugged, if it has a card already installed , remove the screw holding the card down then pull the old card straight up out of the card slot. Align the new card that you purchased , pushing it straight down into the slot. Install the hold down screw. Reinstall the side . Install the software after hooking  the computer and monitor up.   If you don;t jknow which type of card ,down load a manual and maybe even further instructions from the weblink I provided.

Below it the Gateway support center for your model. All you have to do is to put in your 22 digit serial number.

This is a well known issue with gateway media centre and there is no easy solution for this problem. If you are an expert in tearing apart the system and putting it back, then this LInk has some options which have worked to many people.

Gateway Media Center PC is on, but there is no picture.


I have been fixing one for a customer. At first I thought that it was the typical burned out powersupply. Delta Electronics has created a replacement. The old REV 00 is 185 watts peak. The new REV01 is 185 nominal. Was the shaggy067 did not take the time to look up is that the 610 is an "All in one" modular monitor/case.
This customers is the first one that I have replace the power supply and it still does not work. I believe the flourescent backer of the LCD is shot. I will not know for sure until I find another one. The S-video works fine, so I am testing it using my projector. Everything works except the lcd panel.
