Question about Computers & Internet
I disassembled my laptop (Gateway W350I) because it was overheating near the 2.5mm DC barrel jack. It looks like there's supposed to be two capacitors in parallel on the motherboard right behind the power jack, a C8 and a C11. C8 is missing! Is there any way to figure out what capacitance it should be? Any suggestions on where to get a replacement? Thanks.
Use the reference capacitance in microfaradio, with equal voltage like c11 not less. You can go to any electronic store like radio shack and get it.
God bless you

You can download a .pdf service manual from here: http://www.eserviceinfo.com/fulltext.php?search_ft=400sd4 It is a multi-part download so make sure you get all four parts to the manual before you try to open it. (if you need WinRAR to unzip the files you can get a demo at download.com) The service manual has instructions and photos on how to disassemble your laptop. Good Luck, El Duderino

SOURCE: Toshiba M35X S149, DC jack loose
Try this simple solution. Things get knocked loose all the time. Unplug the laptop and remove the battery. Undo the screws the cover the Memory modules on the bottom of the laptop. Remove then firmly re-seat the cards. Be aware of the retaining clips holding the cards in.
Replace battery, plug in, and boot.
Hope this helps, and you have nothing to loose but a little bit of time.

Ok I just did this on my Gateway it is a different model though. I am not sure where you are stuck so I will start from the beginning. Remove all the screws from the back, then remove all the components (hard drive, cd rom, network card, battery etc.) beneath these components are more screws remove them. I do not know if you have removed your keyboard if not there are screws attatching it to the motherboard on the bottom remove those mine had three in various places like by the network card and dvd rom. If you are unsure consuly gateways website there are instructions for removing your keyboard. Beneath the keyboard there are more screws you will need to remove the monitor adapter in the rear unplug it from the motherboard and beneath it there are more screws. When you think you have removed them all gently pull on the motherboard from every side if it moves freely on eachside you are ready to dislodge it from the casing. If there is a location that is still firmly in place inspect that area from the top and bottom you should be able to locate the remaining screw.
The mother board does not slip out once all screw are removed it is lodged firmly in the case especially by the fan vent you have to coax it out.
