I can get the bottom off of my Gateway 7330GZ laptop

I have taken all of the screws out of the bottom of the laptop that I can see and it still won't open. Do you have some instructions for disassembling the notebook?

The momentary switch on my Gateway 7330GZ laptop is defective. If I can slide it to the proper location, it will work. How do I remove the display portion to access the screws to remove the top panel and...


Here is a video on how to open the monitor on a Gateway notebook, although if the switch isn't working anymore I assume there is a part of it broken inside and you might need a replacement.

I need to replace the CMOS battery in my Gateway 7330 laptop and I cannot find out where it is


It is just below the keyboard under the palm rest. Remove all of the screws from the bottom of the unit, carefully - from the left side, pry up the trim panel that has the power button (careful since the power button board is screwed into this panel), then remove the screws for the keyboard, slide it up towards the LCD to release it, remove its ribbon cable, you should be able to gently pry the upper and lower case halves apart enough to see the battery. The cases will NOT seperate!!!!!!!!! I then used a small straight blade screw driver to pop the battery out. It was a CR 1220 3v lithium coin type battery in my 7330GZ. I had to go to a specialty battery store to get one! Hope that this helps!

The case snaps together. Try pulling it apart. It is designed to NOT easily come apart, so you will have to gently work at it without breaking anything.

I need to replace the backlight on my laptop


Majority of the time it's NOT the backlight, it's the inverter. Who told you that it was the backlight specifically?

Virtually every lcd is the same procedure. Just remove the screws around the lcd, some are hidden under the rubbers, and CAREFULLY pry the plastic surrounding the lcd. It's basically common sense. Just take it apart....CAREFULLY.

That's about it, really.

I have gateway 7330gz I can not open back (for cleaning)


Put all the screws back in except for two... on the bottom of the case the one directly above the "ew" in Gateway 7330 and the screw that is about 3 inches to the left of that sticker.. For further clarification, but not at the outside corners they're both near the back of the computer.

After those are removed, open the laptop with the screen completely open so the computer almost lays flat. Use a precision awl or flathead screw driver to pry up the strip at the top where your power and sound buttons are... I had the best luck prying it up from the left. Be careful about the ribbon cable that is under the buttons that goes to the motherboard... if detached it is difficult to reattach.

From there it should be pretty easy to see the 2 screws for the keyboard and then 4 screws on a metal plate which once removed will give you access to most of the motherboard.

Notebook Gateway 7330GZ won't boot


Hm...That sounds like either the motherboard is dying/dead or a device is (such as the hard drive). I would suggest removing one piece at a time and see if you can get past that screen. The most annoying would be if it is the DVD drive since it's probably the most difficult device to remove from the laptop. (If memory serves it involves removing a certain screw from the bottom and then getting under the keyboard so you can push it out).

Do you have a second stick of RAM installed? Mine died a while ago and caused real heck with my 7330GZ.

Gateway 7330GZ PC Notebook screen going off and on


Ya, my 7330GZ has been having this problem. I did end up taking the screen apart.

Removing the little black nubs around the screen allow you to remove the screws, then you just use a flat headed screw driver to unclip around the edges (some can be stubborn, especially along the bottom).

The screen is glued to the casing along the top and bottom, so you have to gently separate the two.

After you have it opened up the screen has 3-4 screws along the left and right side (the right side is a pain to unscrew since the wireless antenna casing runs right along it).

Once you remove those screws you can take the screen out and get access to the ribbon cable running along the back.

Gateway Notebook PC 7330 GZ Power Problem


The most common problem is the plastic that covers the switch breaks. It's a poor design. Take out two screws along the top edge from the bottom near the middle and pry off the keyboard access cover. Then take off the circuit board and you should be able to turn it on and off.
