2) http://www.insidemylaptop.com/replace-keyboard-gateway-m-series-notebook/

Motherboard side of video cable, should be under the Switch Cover, (LED indicators, Power On button, speakers, etc), or under the Keyboard close to the Switch Cover.

Don't forget to remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery. (Use CARE. Wires going to Switch Cover. Do not cut them by accident, or pull on them when removing Switch Cover )

My Gateway 7405 randomly shuts down. It does not matter how long it has been running for. It has shutdown during bootup and after running for many hours. Just before it shutsdown the fan accelerates to...


You might try changing the Power Options (its in the Control Panel) Properties so that all windows are set to NEVER. That is, so that it will never automatically turn off monitor, hard disks or go to standby. Also turn off all the alarms. This worked for my Presario R3000 running WinXP Sp2 which would shut off for no apparent reason. Having said that, you should blow out your fan with compressed air occasionally. And check that your power cord is OK. When you pull out your power cord, the battery icon should show operation.

Gateway 7405 battery and charge problems


This sounds like a problem with the charging circuit on the board.
There could be a problem with the power jack:

They are available but will require disassembly and probably some soldering to replace.
It might be best to try another MB if you can find one cheap. Like this:

Lgateway laptop won't power on


Your computer works fine. Its just a little plastic tab that has broken off of the power button. Bad design! The power button doesn't sit right about the power switch. The broken tab makes the switch. The button is directly about the LED light. You have to remove the power button panel (Your user manual will instruct you on that) and then you can rig something where the plast tab was or just remove the circuit board from the panel and just power it on with your finger on the circuit board. No risk of shock. Well it hasn't gotten me yet :o) There's only two screws that you have to remove from the back of the computer to remove the panel and keep in mind that the top hinge covers are part of the power button panel so you have to gently loosen those with a little screw driver as well.

The real button is under the button you see. You might be able to get the keyboard cover off. If it's not broken broken you could try to reseat it. The part unless you find a cheaper source is 149.00 (which frankly is ridiculous)

Gateway 7405 GX Fully shuts down at random intervals


It sounds like a thermal shut down when the processor over heats,one thing it might be is that the heat sink is not seated properly on the processor.When removing the heat sink make sure you have thermal paste to place between the processor and heat sink.That should give you a good starting point.

7210gx won't power on.


You know what its probably that the power button is not connected to the motherboard. Pull the power button piece back out and reconnect the cable on both sides.

If that doesnt do it, the plastic power button itself might be broken. You can replace that whole button board to fix it. usually $60-$80 for the part (gateway does not sell parts so the companies that do are expensive)

But check that cable first and let us know if it works.
