    Yeah, I'm doing the same thing. Got it open tho. It would be nice to find a guide to go along with though!!

    One of my friends took apart one and didn't really keep a record of where things went. I am trying to put it back together now but something is not right. A picture of a opened laptop(torn apart) would be nice.

Gateway kav60 not charging. i have to wiggle the cord and sometimes it refuses to charge.


I guess you've got a broken laptop power dc jack or power cable.


Symptoms of a broken Laptop DC power jack:


- The laptop only operates when you hold the DC power plug in a certain direction (DC jack is broken or loose).
- The laptop only runs on battery power (no power is getting through the DC jack).
- The laptop gets no power at all.
- The laptop will not charge the battery.
- The laptop switches from AC power to battery power intermittently due to a loose or broken power jack.
- The laptop suddenly shuts off.
- The DC jack may feel loose.
- Sparks come out of the back of the laptop when you insert the power plug into the DC jack.

No connection with the DC Jack on Gateway 3550GZ


It's time to take the computer to a qualified technician, for proper trouble-shooting & repair, because there are very-few "user-repairable" parts inside a laptop/notebook computer.

Access to solder joint Gateway MX6440


Hello. I have seen this happen with all models of laptops. Too bad Apple has a patent on that magnetic power cord they use...

You can find all of the service and user manuals for your Gateway laptop here...

I'm having overheating trouble with my Gateway 7322gz. I'm looking for a repair manual to show me the best way to take it apart so I can clean it and replace the fans if needed


You don't necessarily have to take it apart. Simply taking a vacuum, and putting it close to the fans, while sealing one of them with tape works well enough. I tried this on an old HP and it works well enough. Compressed air is also OK.

Removing the DC input from a Gateway 7322gz notebook


I tried looking up a manual on how to remove the motherboard on Gateway's support site but they do not provide one. They may have one available that is not published on the site. I would first contact their tech support via Chat and ask if they have one available for download. This would give you specific instructions on how to open the laptop and remove the motherboard so you can replace the DC jack. You will need the serial number from the laptop to open a chat session.
If they do not have one you can try it yourself. I did this myself with my HP laptop and after many tedious hours of work I was able to remove the motherboard, remove the dc jack, and resauder a new one on the board and it worked out perfectly.
If you feel comfortable doing the work yourself first start off by removing the screws on the bottom. You then should be able to remove the keyboard, look for a cable that connects it to the board. Now you should be able to remove the pieces of the case around the keyboard, look for the cable connecting the touchpad to the motherboard. After that you should be able to remove the LCD screen, look for the cable connecting it to the motherboard. Now remove the screws holding the motherboard in and remove the tiny bolts around the external monitor connector and the printer connector if you have one. Now you should have access to the DC jack. You will need to sauder the current one off the board and resauder a new one on. Keep track of the many many screws and try placing the components in the order they came out so will know which ones need to go back in in the proper order.
This is VERY tedious if you are not familiar with working on laptop hardware. You maybe able to find a local shop willing to do this or you can look online for a place that replaces DC jacks on motherboards.

Hope this helps!
