Need to replace cmos battery in Gateway MP8708

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.

Gateway MP8708 Won't boot past BIOS and won't boot into CD/USB/Safe Mode on XP - Blank screen with keyboard dead - Num locks on and wireless light

Somehow your MBR (Master Boot Record) likely got corrupted or possibly your hard drive went bad coincidentally.

Simply, you will start your computer from your Windows CD/DVD install disk, then when at a DOS prompt ( D:\ ) you will then type: FDISK /MBR (press enter).

Find your Operating System install DVD and start your computer with it, then follow instructions within this discussion:
Restore Windows XP MBR without Windows XP disc

Alternatively, review my search results for other instructions:
fdisk mbr windows xp Google Search

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

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.

My son bought a Gateway E-machines from Best Buy. It needs a new headphone jack (piece broke off in the jack). Best Buy wants to replace MotherBoard ($382) to fix Headphone jack. Is this really...

The reality is, Best Buy will only swap parts. there are other vendors on the internet that will replace discrete components. Google for "laptop power jack replacement" to find options. it takes decent skills to do this kind of repair, so research well.
