You first have to remove the bezel that is between the keyboard and screen. Sometimes this is held on by a couple of screws on the bottom of the laptop. Once you get that thing off, there will be 3 or 4 little screws just above the F keys that hold the keyboard in place. Remove them, and slide the keyboard towards the screen until it is free. Be careful not to damage the ribbon cable attached to the mb.

Motherboard side of video cable, should be under the Switch Cover, (LED indicators, Power On button, speakers, etc), or under the Keyboard close to the Switch Cover.

Don't forget to remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery. (Use CARE. Wires going to Switch Cover. Do not cut them by accident, or pull on them when removing Switch Cover )

How do I replace the keyboard on a Gateway LT3119U?


Visit the Gateway support document website and locate the "User's Guide" section of the listings for your laptop model.


You should be able to locate either a "component replacement manual," or a document focusing specifically on replacement of the keyboard for that model (as different models of keyboards have slightly different methods of removing the keyboard.)


You may also wish to check the FAQ's in the support documents of your model, as they may also contain information on replacing the keyboard.


Power down your Gateway laptop and remove the battery.


This will not only ensure that you don't accidentally damage your laptop by powering it up while working on its components, but may also be necessary to reach the mounting screws for your laptop's keyboard.


Press the power button once after the battery has been removed to discharge any remaining electricity that the laptop may have stored.


Consult the support documents for your Gateway laptop model and find out where the keyboard mounting screws are located.


There will most likely be between two and five screws, depending on the specific model of laptop that you own.


You may be required to remove the keyboard bezel (the strip of plastic that runs along the top of the keyboard) in order to reach some or all of the screws; this can be done either by sliding the bezel off to the right of the laptop or by simply lifting it off once loosened (though you may need to use a coin or flat-head screwdriver to detach clips or pry the bezel out of its resting location.)


Remove the screws holding the keyboard in place.

The screws will either be located on the bottom of the laptop (under the space that the battery occupies) or beneath the keyboard bezel.


Put the screws in a safe place where they will not be lost, since you will need to use them to secure the new keyboard.


Lift the keyboard up from the bottom, detaching the keyboard connector and pulling the keyboard itself free from the Gateway laptop, then setting it aside.


You may need to once again use a coin or flat-head screwdriver in order to depress clips which might be holding the keyboard in place.)


Plug your new keyboard into the keyboard connector, then carefully place it back into the space previously occupied by your old keyboard.


If the keyboard is designed to be held in place by clips, press down with sufficient pressure to clip the keyboard into place.

Replace the screws that you had previously removed from the Gateway laptop.


Make sure that the screws are firmly in place both to ensure that the keyboard is secure and also to eliminate any potential problems with replacing the bezel or battery.


Reattach the bezel (if you removed it) and the laptop battery, making sure that all components have been reattached and are firmly secured.


Once the battery is back in place, press the power button to power up the Gateway laptop and give your operating system a chance to recognize the newly-installed keyboard.


hope this helps

I have the replacement keyboard for the gateway NV54 laptop. I need basic instructions on removing the old keyboard and unstalling the new keyboard. Can anybody help because Gateway can't help so far.


All them are pretty basically the same. Pull out power cord and battery... Remove the bezel piece top of the keyboard "the thing the power button sits in". When you remove it there should be 2 screws very tiny holding the keyboard down remove them. Under the keyboard there will be the power ribbon DO NOT JUST PULL IT OUT!! There will be like a brown/white clip that locks the ribbon to the board. The brown may be black or even blue that is the locking piece. Carefully lift the clip up and gently pull the ribbon out. If its stuck you have not unlocked it. Pull the old keyboard out and repeat the steps backwards.

Shift key on gateway laptop not working


You can try removing the keyboard from the device manager and restarting the computer.

If that doesn't work then you'll need to swap out the keyboard. Ebay is the cheapest and easiest place to get one ;)

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.
