Power down PC. Open the PC tower. Look at the motherboard and find the CMOS battery. Looks like the picture below. Make sure you touch some sort of metal area on the PC to ground yourself before touching the components. Use something thin to pop the old CMOS battery out. The CMOS batteries are usually universal. CR2032 is the usual type used. These can be found at a CVS or Walgreens. Once you have acquired the next battery, make sure the CR2032 is facing up and just press it in.

SOURCE: Gateway 450rog cmos battery

The CMOS battery is located on the motherboard, just under the bottom left side of the keyboard, by the letter 'V". It looks like a clock battery, marked 3V (volts). The battery comes out of its "cage/connector" by gently lifting it with a small flat screwdriver. Replacement CMOS batteries are inexpensive and readily available at any computer shop. Hope that helps

SOURCE: need to replace the cmos battery on a gateway 450sx4 laptop.

Some are way deep inside, and you have to remove the top part of the case from the bottom.

Some others, you can remove the top power strip, (unscrew screws in the battery compartment, and sometimes on the bottom) and then unscrew the keyboard, and when you remove that, sometimes you can get right to it.

The only problem is, some of the laptop batteries are odd ducks, and not just the standard, they have wires or a metal tag on them. You can always order a new one onces you get to it.

Get in contact with Gateway before you change it. On some devices removing the CMOS battery and leaving it out for about 1 minute will clear all passwords, but please check with Gateway first, as it may result in you bricking your PC.

I have a gateway mp8708 and it wont charge, boot, or even power the charging led. i tested the charger and itd fine. what could be the problem?


One of two things are likely your problem:

1) The battery is so dead that it's preventing any power from reaching the rest of the PC. Try pulling the battery out, plugging the laptop in, and turning it on.

If that doesn't work,

2) The motherboard power converter is burned out. If this is the case, unfortunately you will need a replacement motherboard or a replacement laptop.

Good luck, and hope this is helpful!

Cannot find my recovery disk for my gateway mp8708. need some guidance. Got rid of several old computers over the holidays and expect that disk got put with one of the ones I gave to Goodwill.


Gateway has a site on the topic

http://support.gateway.com/s/software/medialess/faq/suppage01su44.shtml

If your system is intact, you can create the recovery CDs, following the instructions.

If not, you need to order a new set.

There is no legal place to download recovery CDs, since they contain copies of the Microsoft OS.

I need a list of what size motherboards will fit into a mp8708 laptop


In the laptop world, there is little that you can do with motherboard replacement, it isn't like desktop where case can fit and accept most motherboard. You will need to find the exact motherboard made for your model. In your case, your laptop would only accept motherboard made for the gateway mp8708 and the mo8720 laptop part #4006145R 31PA6MB0042. The reason to this is because laptop casing comes in diffferent size and shape and ports and screws are installed differently too. If you find that it is expensive to repair, buy a new laptop.

What is the correct battery for the BIOS memory for a Gateway model 4025GZ notebook ?


http://cgi.ebay.com/GENUINE-ACER-250-REAL-TIME-CLOCK-RTC-CMOS-BATTERY-/250619795738?pt=Laptop_Batteries&hash=item3a5a1a991a

Method.

When your Gateway computer is switched off, it still keeps track of various system information such as the date and time, thanks to a small battery that never powers off. The size and thickness of a dime, the CMOS battery can run out and need to be replaced. You can swap out a dead CMOS battery with a new one by removing the Gateway computer's side access panel.

Difficulty: Moderate
Instructions Things You'll Need:

  • Phillips-head screwdriver

  • CMOS battery replacement

  1. 1

    Shut down the computer. Remove the power cable from the back of the computer case. Disconnect the cables for the monitor, mouse, keyboard, and printer.

  2. 2

    Set the computer case over on its side. Use the Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the two case screws at the far left end of the case.

  3. 3

    Slide the side access panel to the left and remove it from the computer case. Find the CMOS battery port, which will be located to the lower left of the processor in most Gateway computer models.

  4. 4

    Lift up the plastic clip holding the CMOS battery in place. Slide a fingernail under one side of the battery and lift it off the motherboard port.

  5. 5

    Check the orientation of the new battery and compare it to the CMOS motherboard port. Push the new battery into place in the same direction that the old battery was facing. Push down the plastic clip.

  6. 6

    Set the side access panel back onto the Gateway computer case and reattach the case screws. Plug in the Gateway computer and power it on.
