SOURCE: I have A Gateway S-7700n laptop need help to unlock

I believe that's a BIOS password you are referring to. If the laptop is indeed stolen then this will weed it out.
Call the manufactuer and ask about your problem. They should need certain information to help you, they can help you, sometimes it involves sending it in. HOWEVER, if it's stolen, it will be flagged when it's service tag (BIOS related and unchangable) comes up with someone else's name, address, etc. And authorities will end up being at your door. So, if it's stolen I guess you'll find out :) And if not, well, then your problem will be fixed.

Hardrive removal


Simple as pie... you will see the harddrive mounted horizontally in a small shelf after you tae the cover off. You have to unscrew the philips screws that hold it in the shelf and unplug the connectors. make sure you label the wires so you know which ones came from that harddrive... they is usually room for 2 harddrives and two complete sets of connectors, don't mix them up. (One is the master and the other called a slave.) There is an adapter for the harddrive that you should always keep should you need to replace the harddrive, (comes in two pieces on either side) the new ones don't come with the adapters to fit them in the case; they are bare bones. If you don't want to go through the gymnastics of taking the other tower apart and installing the 2nd harddrive in it to read it... an internal HDD adapter can be purchased from Tiger Direct for a nominal cost. I allows you plug you internal HDD into a USB socket in any PC (desktop or laptop) and read it as you would a Flashdrive.

How to retrieve files from a hardrive on laptop that will not work


One way to do it would be first remove the hard drive:

http://support.gateway.com/s/notebook/2009/gateway/nv/nv52/NV52faq4.shtml

Then use a hard drive dock such as this one (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817153071) to connect via USB to a working computer where you'll be able to access your files.

Can I replace my gateway T-6836 laptop 250 gb hardrive


Yes, it can be upgraded for a larger drive. The important specs to know are the physical size and the interface. The size that this computer needs is the 2.5 inch and the interface is the SATA. These are the typical size and interface used today so finding a drive that fits should not be a problem.

Hope this helps.

Trying to remove keyboard from gateway mx3228 just do not know how please help!


I'm not 100% sure about gateway but you can usually download the service manual from the manufacturers web site. Go to their support page and enter your model + service manual or keyboard replace in the search window your should be able to find it and download it then. Be aware most of the time changing the keyboard on most laptops means just about taking the whole computer apart.

7210gx won't power on.


You know what its probably that the power button is not connected to the motherboard. Pull the power button piece back out and reconnect the cable on both sides.

If that doesnt do it, the plastic power button itself might be broken. You can replace that whole button board to fix it. usually $60-$80 for the part (gateway does not sell parts so the companies that do are expensive)

But check that cable first and let us know if it works.
