Very carefully! actually i have not worked on allinones. i know that if you have a warranty it may be voided if you don't take it to shop? you can usually go online and ask the 'HOW TO..' web site. Just put in the mfg, model number of pc saying 'how do i take back off of (information)'. if it is too new to have solution, go to Gateway web site and download User Manual which should tell you how to do repairs. it will be in PDF(adobe) format. Just put in model id or serial tag number of your pc and Gateway will show you the downloads, etc.

SOURCE: RAM upgrade for Gateway model MFATXNIN NMZ 300L?

The system takes PC133 SDRAM, as far as i know without performing a BIOS flash it can take up to 1GB (2x512MB) most of these PC's are restricted to 2x256 so a BIOS flash could be imminent in this case.

Good luck

You should go to the Gateway site and look up that model.
Here's the link:
FYI, there should be a little door on the back that has one or two screws that, when unfastened, expose the memory. But look it up just to be sure

SOURCE: How do I take apart gateway zx6971 ub31p to install memory

In addition to the two screws on the back, there are also screws under the rubber feet at the bottom. Carefully peel them off so you can stick them back on later.

Next, there are 2 screws behind the optical drive. Open the drive, carefully snap off the bezel, then remove those two screws and close the tray.

Last, you will need to take off the stand. Carefully snap off the plastic hiding the hinge then remove the 3 screws and the stand.

Now you will be able to snap off the entire back of the system. It's not easy but not that hard either. Just go slow, start where any damage won't be visible and work your way around.

Now once that's off, there is a big metal plate covering the motherboard. Remove 12 screws around the plate and it lifts off so you can finally access the 2 ram slots.

It does use standard laptop so-dimms, DDR3.

How to fix 1-2 beep code on gateway dx4870-ub20p

Most computers come with 2 sticks of RAM. If yours only has one skip to the bottom.
Step 1
Start by reinstalling your RAM memory. Pull the pins on each side then remove the sticks of RAM. They should be in there pretty firm. DONT wiggle them out, just pull straight up. Then put them back in with the pins still "out". They should be firm to go in as well, again DONT wiggle just push straight down. Both the side pins should lock into place on there own once the RAM is back place properly.
Step 2
If this still doesnt solve it, pull both back out and only put one back in. If that doesnt work, put the other one in only. If still not working try the next step
Step 3
Uninstall all Ram sticks and reinstall just one in one of the slots. If that doesnt work install same stick in a different slot. If that doesnt work, use a different RAM Stick.

How do I remove the back of my Gateway ZX6971-UR30P. I have a cd stuck in the disc drive and the door won't open.

Have you tried to use a straightened out paper clip to eject the disc. You should see a small hole next to the eject button on the disc drive, just push the paper clip in that and the drive door should open.
