The power button in my Gateway laptop MT6451 got pushed it can't be accessed from the top. How can it be accessed from the button?


Quite easily Sergio

The plastic Power On button you see, presses against a carbon button Power On switch, below it.

I suggest removing the Switch Cover, and then you can access the Power On switch's carbon button, and press it down to turn the laptop on.

You can also, then see about repairing the Power On button assembly, or replace the Switch Cover.

1) Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter {Charger}, and Battery.

2) Laptop closed, laid on it's top; Bottom side up.
Turn it so you are looking down in the Battery Compartment, where the Battery was......

Down in the Battery Compartment are 4 Philips head screws to remove. You need the smaller No.1 Philips screwdriver, or the equivalent Jewelers screwdriver.

Here is the Base Enclosure, (Bottom Cover), not installed on the laptop,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/39MA7BATA10-Gateway-MA3-MT6451-Bottom-Case-Cover-39MA7BATA10-Genuine-/321101430142?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4ac322fd7e

There are 4 views. The page automatically opens, with a Bottom view, and the Battery Compartment at the top.

SET, your mouse cursor in the middle of the photo. This allows the Zoom In feature.
Go to the top where the Battery Compartment is, and view the 4 holes going along the Top.

This shows you where the 4 screws to be removed are.

Same design, different Gateway notebook,

Go to the third photo down. Has two screws circled in Red.
I just want you to look at the Battery Compartment. (Not the red circled screws)

Look under the whitish - www.InsideMyLaptop.com -
You can see the first two screws pretty visibly. Almost make out the 3rd one, no to the 4th screw.

Once these 4 screws are removed, turn the laptop over.
Open the laptop.

Now you are going to remove the Switch Cover.

In the above link scroll down to the 5th photo, and 6th photo.

This video also shows you,

From 0:45 to 0:47
Please use care when removing, it is plastic.
The video has been sped up.

This is a look at the Switch Cover removed,

I have all screws out of back of gateway ma3 all tabs are clear on top of key pad but wont come out


The only things you could hope to upgrade in a laptop that old is the RAM and the hard drive. if it's an x86 computer the most you get get is 4GBs of ram and maybe a 250GB IDE drive in that. Laptop's are not really meant for upgrading. It isn't cost effective to upgrade laptops anyways. Spend $300 on a new low end laptop and you will have something at least twice as powerful as this laptop you currently have.

How to open and upgrade RAM memory of gateway netbook model LT2704u?


This netbook is really the Acer Aspire One D255. You have to pop off the keyboard, then remove 4 screws that hold the back panel in place, which will allow you to remove that back panel in order to get to the memory.

Here's a video - blurry but it tells the story: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KYNTvF0-5M

How can I open the case of gateway solo 2150? I


There is some information on FixYa for this already which can be found at the post below. Generally with a laptop, you'll have some hidden screws under a bezel on the top of the keyboard area. You gently pop this off with a small screwdriver and underneath will be the screws that hold the keyboard in. After removing these, you generally can disassemble the rest of the laptop.

The fan in my gateway laptop has stopped working and now it it overheats and shuts off. I tried to take it apart. I remove all the visable screws on the bottom but it is still holding on buy something.


It depends on the model and processor but there may be a shiny metal bar that appears to go through the fan that is then clipped onto each side of the socket.

I there is then one side looks like it may hinge a little and what you would do is push down and away from the CPU this would release the fan so long as it was not stuck to the CPU (most are not but some are)

If you look carefully at the fan here also be small 4 black screws that may also allow you to release it.

For most coolers that would be enough and then you would just disconnect the flying lead and pop over to the nearest computer store for another one. without knowing the model of your computer or motherboard it is a little difficult to make a full assessment of what you need.
