SOURCE: Replacing Power Button Circuit Card on Gateway W730 K8X Laptop

The instructions for replacing the keyboard include the cover you have to remove to replace the power button pcb. The power button pcb is attached to the bottom of the bezel that covers the hinges/button array. In a nutshell you just remove the 2 screws indicated in the instructions, pry the hinge covers up a bit, then gently pry the bezel up from the bottom. remove the ribbon cable, pull back the small piece of tape, remove the three small screws holding the pcb on, and remove it from the spring clips.

SOURCE: how do you remove the keyboard on a gateway

Sorry about your keyboard problems.

1. On your base unit, you will find this plastic piece below. Where I have marked a X, you will find 2 screws which need to be removed.
3. After you have removed these two screws, open the cover and lift the cover gently upwards. Removing it from unit.

If you look behind unit with cover opened, you will see 2 screws, ( one on each side.) The Plastic face plate has a 2 Ears the wrap around and can be clearly seen with cover opened.

Now, you will see 3 screws at to top of the KeyBoard. Shown below & marked by a X

4. Remove the 3 screws and carefully lift the keyboard upward at the screw points.
5. Once the keyboard is fairly loose, fold it over and allow it to lay on the armrest.
6. At this point, you will see the Ribbon cable where the Keyboard makes its connection.
Carefully lift the compression flange upward and remove the cable.

Enjoy your new keyboard, invest in a cover, as once you have leaked any wet material past the keyboard, its all over.

Readers, please rate your Technician’s
Thank you.

How to get into bios on acer without knowing pass code to bios??

the best way to get rid off that password is to remove the bios battery. Sometimes is easy to access, sometimes you have to remove the whole mother board (which means literally taking apart your laptop). check under and take off the easy caps like the one for the ram and maybe the one for the Hard drive... you should see a little battery plugged in to the motherboard either directly or with a cable... take it out and wait for like 10 secs and put it back in. If you have to take apart your laptop, I would suggest you find a video on youtube on how to take it apart. I could give you some tips if you decide to take apart the laptop your self.

RAM is low, my diagnostic suggests I upgrading my RAM for better performance. How do I do this?

RAM or memory is a physical component that needs to be installed in your laptop/notebook.

If you are technical enough to do this, you just need to purchase the exact memory module compatible for your laptop and install it yourself. Or, it will be better if you can have a local technician from a local computer shop install it yourself to make sure that it's installed correctly.

Upgrading RAM on Acer Travelmate laptop - can't see existing RAM module

Safely depends on your knowledge of computer hardware. If you know what you re doing, you can take the whole thing apart and replace any non-chip component you want (processor, drives, cards, etc). If you really look you can find sites that will tell you how to take apart a computer. If you don't know what you are doing and your current configuration works well, I would leave it for now, and wait until you can find someone that can help. Hope this helps.

Upgrading memory on a V25 Samsung laptop

Make sure you are ONLY taking off the cover needed to change the RAM. Other screws may hold sensitive parts in place. Go to the laptops makers website and see which screws need to be removed. Its a good idea to also see if you need to change any settings in the BIOS once RAM is installed.

Upgrading Memory on Packard Bell MIT GHA20

If you look along the top edge of the escape/function/del keys, there are several small plastic tabs that hold the keypad in place. Use a very small flat head screwdriver to push these back from one corner across to the other, gently lifting the keypad as you go. When you press back the last tab, the keypad should just pop out but take care as it's connected by a cable at the bottom edge of the keys. The RAM slots are located under a thin metal cover under the keypad. You'll need a very small philips head screwdriver to undo this. After installing RAM, replace the metal cover then pop the keypad back in, bottom edge first and just press down the top edge and the plastic tabs should snap back into place. Hope this helps!
