Look for a Black button on the front of the case (Not the power on button) push it, And the top of it should pop up, If it doesn't pop up lift it up.

This procedure depends a lot on the exact configuration of your Gateway. They are good at making proprietary towers that are different from all others. Unplug all cords from the back of the computer. remove screws along the back on the side of the tower. ( Most of the time it is the right hand side if you are facing the back of the tower :) ) Pull back on the side panel. If it slides back then you're in!! Inside there should be two light or dark grey cables that are flat and about 2 inches wide. one will go up to the top of the tower to the cd player. the other will go down lower to a 1 inch thick rectangular device that is your hard drive. If you are trying to save your hd for use, then be careful at this point. If you are not then just tear away!! Remove the grey (IDE) cable from the back of the hd. Then remove the 1 inch wide white power cable connector that is now exposed on the other side of the ide cable. Good. Now here is where it can be very different depending on your model. The hd will either be screwed directly to the chassis on both sides, or it will be encased in a plastic sled device that will have a latch and will slide out. If it is in the sled, then locate the tab, push in, and pull back. Voila! HD is out. If it is screwed directly into the chassis, then you will need to take off the other side cover of the tower in order to access the screws on the other side of the HD. Then remove. If you are going to store for reuse, it is best to store in a static free bag, otherwise, dispose of according to local regulations for e-waste.

Make sure that you have removed any add on cards that snap into the expansion slots on the motherboard. Some computers use these plastic standoffs that are used for alignment purposes and they protrude through the motherboard. You need to use some small needle nose pliers and pinch the plastic top piece together and then the board will be able to slip up and over them.

My gateway profile 4 all in one has a totally white screen with no display. Rebooted with normal


before thinking about replacing the video card

Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they might be faulty


if its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail


make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty


even something as small as a faulty electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems

computers need all power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error


make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket

if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free


restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard

if you need to replace the video card it will be attached to the rear of the vga lead inside your computer usually in a pga slot


Remove your computer's cables.

Turn your computer around so the back faces you.

Remove the two screws on the computer holding the right side of your computer to the case.

On many models of gateway computers, you only need to remove the screws with your hand. Remove the right side of the case to expose the interior.


Unscrew the metal plate of your old graphics card holding it to your computer's case. Remove the card by sliding it out of the motherboard.

Slide your new graphics card into the slot from where you removed the old one. Screw the metal plate to your computer's case.
Reassemble your computer and connect its cables
hope this helps

Trying to remove the hard drive in an old desktop, how do I do it?


Almost every computer manufacturer has their own way of installing hard drives on each system they make. You should look up your specific Gateway system at their website and look for service and support. There should be instructions posted. Given that Gateway is failing or has failed as a company there may not be any resources available. If that is the case you should take the computer to a computer service center for assistance.

I am tring to remove the hard drive from a gateway 610xl desktop system. Do you know where I can get instruction on how to remove the hard drive?


cosmetic screw covers that cover nothing
"remove this panel so you can remove that panel so you can slide the
carriage holder and unscrew the fenortnor rods."
"Flex the case in the middle and the undercarriage will drop out."
"Slide the front cover a couple inches left and remove screws, then
turn it around and lift the cover one inch to remove third screw."
"Stroke the front left corner lightly, singing a lullaby, then flip it
over and scratch at the furry spot in the middle."

How to open gateway 300c desktop


There are several casings. You'll just have to pick one that fits your computer. Before you begin anything. Turn off your computer and remove the power cable. New Midtower Case 1 Look for a release handle on the top of the new midtower case. 2 Push the release handle inward. 3 Swing the case down from the top to open it. Microtower Case 1 Lay the computer down so that the left side is face up. 2 Locate two cover release levers on the back of the case toward the middle of the left side panel. 3 Squeeze the release levers together, then lift the panel up, swinging it away from the back of the case. Old Midtower Case 1 Lay the computer on its side, so that the left side panel is face up. 2 Remove any retaining screws along the left side of the back of the case that are holding the panel in place. These screws may be removed with your fingers. 3 Locate two release levers at the top and bottom of the back side of the case, and push them away from each other. 5 Swing the panel up and away from the case to open it while holding the release levers.
