Okay first things first make sure you have unlocked the card from the case. Most Gateways have a card lock on it. Once it is unlocked just pull the card out, sometimes they are hard to pull out but you can get a small screw driver and pry up at the case side and slowly work it out.

Hope this helps.

I need to replace the battery in my gateway 285e laptop, but do not know how to remove the battery


I am assuming you mean the CMOS battery. The operation is simply. On the bottom of the laptop are two removable panels. Remove the smaller of the two. Under the panel you may find a wireless communication card. If so remove the card using the catches on the sides of the card. You will need to remove the wires clipped to the card - be sure to note which color is attached to which terminal. Beneath the wireless card you will se the CMOS battery. Release the clip holding it in and replace with the same type of battery. Reconnect the wireless card, attach it wiring (the antenna) and put the cover back on the laptop. You're done.

If it is the primary power battery simply slide the catch on the bottom of the case (just below the battery) to the side and pull the battery out. The catch resets itself when you put the battey back in.

Can I replace the video card or add a video card to my laptop Gateway MX3225 Notebook for a better one?


Video cards are normally built-in on the laptop motherboard and you cannot replace them or add a new one because there is not an expansion slot to add a video card.

How do I change the video card in my 610XL PC?


After the side of the case is opened and the computer unpluged and the video to the monitor unplugged, if it has a card already installed , remove the screw holding the card down then pull the old card straight up out of the card slot. Align the new card that you purchased , pushing it straight down into the slot. Install the hold down screw. Reinstall the side . Install the software after hooking  the computer and monitor up.   If you don;t jknow which type of card ,down load a manual and maybe even further instructions from the weblink I provided.

Below it the Gateway support center for your model. All you have to do is to put in your 22 digit serial number.

Need to replace video card


It would be the card that your monitor plugs into. If the monitor plugs straight into the motherboard, then all you need to do is add a video card and it should automatically bypass the built in one on the motherboard. Thanks and please take a moment to rate this solution with a fixya rating. :c)

System recovery for Gateway GM5048


No that should have nothing to do with it......

What I can recommend is manually installing the drivers rather then going through the entire recovery process again. All of the drivers that you would need you can find here :
