After spending a couple of hours looking for the cmos battery I found it. It is located underneath the mouse keypad. To access it you must unscrew the front bottom of the laptop and be able to seperate to top and bottom portion of the laptop. On the right hand side you will see a pocket inside is the battery. I hope this helps.

I have a windows 8 gateway laptop(NE71B Series) and its seems as if my wifi switch is disable. Anyone with a bit of advice on how to resolve this problem would be very helpful.

Recently had a coworker bring me a Gateway NE71B laptop.
Complaint: No wireless even using a VZW 4GLTE hotspot.
; All drivers and devices are functional with no errors or conflicts.
; Wireless adapter has power and is not in Airplane mode.
; No wireless networks are visible even though there are normally as many as 12 networks available within the area.
; Wired Ethernet adapter works without issues.
Turns out the BIOS was v2.05. After updating the BIOS to v2.13, wireless connectivity is functional. All locally available wireless networks (SSIDs) are visible.

Notes of caution:
; A failed BIOS update will invalidate your warranty per Gateway chat support rep.
; Ensure you have a fully charged battery before updating the BIOS.
; Ensure your AC adapter is plugged in and functional prior to starting the BIOS updater.

I replace the screen on my gateaway mt 6916 and cant install the video controler driver



Prepare the laptop for disassembly. Shut down the laptop completely, then wait a few minutes before removing the battery and unplugging the AC adapter. Turn the laptop over and lay it down on a flat surface so that the battery area is facing away from you and the hard drive is located at the bottom left corner.

Remove the hard drive cover. Remove the two screws located on the left side of the hard drive cover, then lift the cover to remove it completely from the unit.

Remove the memory cover. Unscrew the eight screws holding the memory board in place; this cover is located above the Gateway product sticker.

Disconnect the Wi-Fi adaptor. Remove the Wi-Fi cover by unscrewing the single screw holding the Wi-Fi adapter in place; this is located directly above the hard drive. Remove the two cables connecting the wireless card to the adapter and snap the card out of the holder.

Remove the memory modules. Gateway computers typically have two memory modules located in the center of the motherboard; lift these out gently with your fingers and set them aside.

Release the heat sink. Unscrew the four screws around the heat sink assembly; this unit is located to the left of the ventilation fan and is surrounded by a copper base. Carefully lift the heat sink and the cooling fan off the unit and unplug the cable attaching it.

Remove the CD/DVD drive. Unscrew the small screw located to the left of the CD/DVD drive, then push the drive out to remove it from the laptop completely.

Remove all screws around the base of the laptop. You will now be left with a total of 18 screws located around the edge of the base of the laptop, and in between the stickers and hardware components in the center. Remove all of these carefully and set aside in a safe place.

Prepare the cover for removal. Turn the laptop up on its edge so that the back of the laptop is facing you; you will see two screws on the hinges of the computer. Unscrew these and set them aside.

Remove the hinge cover. Open the laptop so that the screen is laying flat; use the flathead screwdriver to pry open the hinge cover and pull it off gently with your fingers.

Remove the keyboard. Lift up the keyboard and reach behind it to release the cable. You will need to tug gently on the cable to unhook it from the motherboard.

Unhook the LCD screen from the notebook. Unplug the Wi-Fi antenna cables located on the right side of the motherboard directly under the screen, then unplug the video cable located directly under the hinge cover. Remove the pair of screws located to the left and right of the LCD screen and gently lift the LCD screen off the notebook's base unit.

Remove the system board. Turn the base unit over and unscrew the five screws securing the motherboard to the base. Two of these are located near the hinge cover, and two are located beneath and to the right of the hard drive unit. The fifth is located a few inches below the top right edge of the laptop.

Disconnect the motherboard. Lift the system board, then unhook the cable connecting it to the base unit.

Connecting a genbook to wifi

Turn on your computer and locate the Wi-Fi icon.

This is located in the system tray in the bottom-right corner of the screen.

The icon looks like a series of rectangles that increase in size from left to right.

Right-click the Wi-Fi icon and select "Connect to a network." You will see a list of available wireless networks.

Choose a Wi-Fi network you want to connect to and select "Connect."

Enter the password into the password text box if a password is required. If a password is not required, you will automatically connect to the Wi-Fi network.

Click "OK."

Error 411, battery drained. new battery? how about the solution

It's possible that the CMOS battery is drained. When this happens, you get error messages like the one you mention. This is a relatively simple fix, but it requires you to open your computer. In the case of a laptop, you can also open that, but be aware that doing so can VERY easily damage components inside the laptop.

For a computer (desktop or mini-tower):

1. Remove the power plug from the system. Then remove the outer cover. Do this by reading your computer's documentation on how to remove the cover. This may mean removing some screws, so have a phillips or a flat head screw driver present. Be sure NOT to use a magnetized screw driver. Magnetized screwdrivers have a magnetic tip that allows you to seat screws or pick them up easier. This type of screwdriver will damage internal components of your computer if placed within the computer wi case for whatever reason.

2. Once you remove the cover, AND BEFORE REACHING INTO THE SYSTEM, touch the metal frame to ground any static electricity.

3. Locate what looks to be a large watch battery. It looks round, flat and silvery. It will be clipped into a plastic clip slot, and can be removed. Looking at the battery, it will have a "+" sign inscribed on it, in addition to some numbers and letters. That is one indication that you are indeed looking at the battery. Your computer's documentation may even point out this battery. It's location isn't standardized, but it may or may not be easily accessible. Make a mental note or write down how the battery is inserted into the clip slot. It needs to go back in the same exact way it appears before you remove it.

4. Remove the battery, or write down any numbers and letters you see on the battery. These numbers and letters are the battery type and you need this information to replace the battery. It's easier to simply remove the battery and take it with you to a place like radioshack and ask for an exact or equivalent replacement of the battery you have. A sales associate can help you locate the right battery.

5. When you have the new battery, insert it into the plastic clip slot, making sure the side with the "+" sign is facing up, toward you. (In other words, put it back in the same way you found it.)

6. Since the cover is off the system, take a moment to clean the dust out. Grab a can of compressed air and woosh it around the system. Try and clean the fans and between the circuit boards. This is purely optional, and not required to complete the procedure. Replace the computer's outer cover. Plug the power cord back in to the system.

7. Power on your computer. Your system's bios may take a few minutes to get itself back on track. Most system BIOS are smart enough to recover from a dead battery. Your system may enter it's BIOS setup when it powers back on. If it does, take the opportunity to re-enter the current date and time. Also, page through the other options and verify they are correct. If you do not understand the other options and settings other then the date and time, DO NOT CHANGE any setting. Doing so could cause the system to become unusable. Have a knowledgeable friend help out, or bring the system to a shop.

8. Exit the BIOS setup, being sure to save your changes. The system will restart, and hopefully your system should power on normally. If the system does not start normally or displays an error, power it down and take the system to a shop or have a knowledgeable friend come over and help.

For a laptop, the procedure is essentially the same. However, the procedure to remove the cover or access panels is different, and varies across brands and models. Consult your laptop's documentation, or call the brand manufacturer's tech support number. A technician can step you through the procedure to open the laptop to access the CMOS button cell battery. Note that in some cases, removing the covers or access panels can VOID a laptop's warranty.
