Gateway Model 0019401806 Tower - Power button fell into case

The power button my Gateway Model 0019401806 is depressed into the opening and I can't find a way to reach it from behind the case to replace it. The position is stuck in the 'off' position. If I could just get it 'on' I would use my powerstrip to control it. Any ideas how to access the back of the tower case (front)?

Thanks!

Take the side panels of the case (while unplugged from power outlet), from their you can reach the two tabs on the upper right and left and the plastic front of the tower will come off. When looking at the back of the tower, on the right there are two screws you can turn with your fingers and on the left side there are two screws you'll need a socket wrench for, or pair of small pliers to turn. Once these are off, the side panels will slide out.

I have the same problem, but cannot find a replacement button, as the reason it fell was the mechanism broke (the external button moves to press a tiny button on the tower itself). So I have to use the computer without the front on and just press the little button on the tower.

DO NOT use the computer without the side panels off though. I'm not sure about using the computer without the front panel, it seems ok, just looks ugly, but computer works.

If anyone knows where to find the lever button for these Gateway towers, please let me know. Gateway customer service is useless.

There are tabs inside the case that you depress to pull the front cover off. once pulled off you should be able to replace the switch.

Remove the battery and power source. Remove the RAM and hdd. Power up with the power supply and it should do something. If it does, replace the RAM and hdd it should now restart. If nothing, check the GPU.

How do i turn off the HDD


What happens when entering the sleep mode is the drives will be turned off and the present state will be kept in memory until awakened. While the system is active the power scheme will prevent the drives from idling down after so many minutes with the never turn off setting applied.

With the turn off drives after the default 20minutes of inactivity that doesn't mean all drives turn off at the exact same time. I've never come across any reference for changing the power plan option for individual drives. But I can point you at the guide for the power plan settings with one instruction on drive settings to apply prior to entering the sleep mode.



hope that helps if not let someone here know.

How do I get the battery out of my acer laptop


Your Model of Aspire has a different battery release method, see attached pic on how to do it. This is a pic from your User Manual, you can download it from here Download Acer Aspire E1 572
Manual
. I suspect that the information you have been given regarding battery removal and passwords refers to removing the cmos battery as in a PC in the hope that it will clear Bios activated passwords.

Hide file folder WITH A password


For the most part you need 3rd party software, or a USB drive with security built in. Just remember you are at the mercy of those companies if you lose the password. Plus some software will only works locally. For instance if someone removes the drive and connects it to another computer the files are wide open.
Win 7 Ult and Ent (high end editions have Bitlocker built in.
A simple way is to create a folder within his login account docs and choose hidden as the properties. The only way to see it would be to change folder properties and make hidden files visible. This is just cloaking, because anybody with admin rights can see them.

Freezes on the warm boot screen MC9000


This can be for a number of reasons.

First thing would be to try and cold boot the device:-

Remove battery half way, hold power button and trigger, push battery in fully until click and then release power and trigger

If that fails next thing would be to try and re-flash the operating system. This is done by using an SD card and loading the latest operating files onto it. The SD card slot is located under the keypad. A cross head screwdriver is required to remove the keypad. Search on symbol software download site for the latest. The download also has a readme with detailed instructions. Once the files are on perform a cold boot.

Remove battery half way, hold power button and trigger, push battery in fully until click and then release power and trigger. Drop the terminal in a cradle so that it runs on external power.

Hope this helps.

How do i turn my bluetooth on?acer aspire 5044wlmi


For Acep Aspire 504x model systems that have Bluetooth built in, there is an on/off switch located in the front of the system.

For systems with bluetooth built in there will be two buttons next to each other just left of the mic and headphone ports.

The left of the 2 buttons is the bluetooth switch and the right of the 2 buttons is for 802.11 wireless.

If you only have 1 button then you do not have bluetooth built-in. You can also check to see if bluetooth is included by looking at the bottom, if Bluetooth is installed there will be a white FCC lebel with the name Bluetooth written on it.
