Yes, keys are cheap, and most stores will give you the key, but the problem is most keyboard vendors have 3-4 versions of each keyboard and therefore it will most likely not match up or fix, so spend the $5 and get it right, take a look at http://www.replacementlaptopkeys.com

You can go to websites like:
http://buy1key.com
http://www.machinaelectronics.com
http://www.laptopkeys.co.uk/
I have not tried any of them personally but basically each one will send you the rubber cap that pushes the key back up, the plastic "scissor" part, and the actual key itself. Somewhat expensive but it is a lot cheaper than buying the whole keyboard...and a lot easier to replace. Good luck!

This is the closest i can give you. I cannot find this model number online.  http://computers.bizrate.com/computers_software/search__keyword--gateway+keyboards.html

But you might be able to go to any computer repair shop and see if they have a "c" key that will fit your computer. Make sure if you do this to take your notebook with you so they can make sure the key will fit.
Hope this helps and sorry again i could not find an exact match for you.

SOURCE: my gateway laptop 4540gz cant find opp system

Hello,
First you must attempt to check the boot order in the bios to make sure that your hard drive is listed first. Then while you are in the bios, do a hard drive diagnostics if available. Re-boot after saving your new settings and see if it comes up.
If it does not show up, take the hard drive out and re-insert it. If the hard drive shows up as a device. You may need to re-install your operating system & drivers due to a Virus or Static Shock.. If so, do the following:
To restore system software from the hard drive backup copy:
1
Restart the computer, then press F11 when prompted to start the
restore process. The System Recovery program starts. You have
three seconds to press F11 before Windows starts.
2 Click a system restore option. For more information, see
“Restoration options” on page 5.
Non-Destructive System Restore (Recommended)
Full System Restore (Destructive)
Full System Restore (with Backup) (Advanced Option)
3 Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the system
software restoration process.
Caution
The Full System Restore option deletes all files on your hard
drive and brings your computer back to its original factory state.
GREAT LUCK!! Lucky4lynn2 :)

How do I replace a keyboard on a Gateway NE522?


Laptop keyboard replacement procedures are all similar,

Search on the internet for how to replace ne552 keyboard (or similar). You my find quite a number of nearly relevant instructional videos and step-by-step instructions, referring to slightly different models..Look at a few and see how similar they are, pick one and follow it eg
Replace Keyboard Gateway Laptop or
Replace Keyboard on Gateway Laptop NE56R
What you really need is the maintenance & service manual, but there doesn't seem to be one. You might try contacting Gateway support and asking.
Keyboards for your model are readily available, on ebay or from commercial parts suppliers, even Gateway

Where can you buy the keyboard? my son has ripped some keys off and I do not know where to find either the little plastic replacement springs or a full keyboard.


Here a couple of links where you can find a replacement keyboard: http://www.sunvalleyus.com/GatewayKeyboard/ http://www.nextag.com/gateway-keyboard/shop-html http://www.papatek.com/Gateway-Keyboard/ http://www.amazon.com/DekCell-Laptop-Keyboard-Gateway-MX6000/dp/B000NJYHRA
It depends also on the model of your laptop.
You can also buy just the keys and put them yourself: http://www.laptop-keys.com/Select%20Model.php?model=Gateway Also here is a guide, if you want to do it yourself: (do not delete) utube.png

My gateway laptop 4540gz cant find opp system


Operating system is the main program of the computer. It can b easily detected by your computer in boot up. So if the computer doesn't detect it, this are the steps you can try :

  1. First try to run system restore if you have one.
  2. If you don't have system restore disk, or back up disk, you can remove your hardisk from your laptop and try to connect it to other computer as an external hard drive. in that, you can copy important files and back up it in other computer if it is not also deleted.
  3. Then if you have back up your file or not, you must format your hard disk. return your hard disk to your laptop and format it.
If you don't know how to format just ask again here.

7330GZ Gateway laptop keyboard doesn't work


There is one thing you can try. Uninstall the drivers for the keyboard from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the keyboard and reinstall the drivers automatically. If this doesn't work, then I'm afraid the Shift key function has failed and the keyboard will need replaced in order to fix it.
