    the top panel wiggles a little, and there is a piece of the front panel that seems to have a slight spring to it, but nothing I do is allowing anything to release.

Check the case to see if there is a button at the bottom of the back of the case. Sometimes the thin cases like that, similar to dell, open like a book.

    So, if there is no button and there is no latch on the side of the case or any screws from the back, check to see if there are any seams to the desktop case. Follow the seam. You may have to also check underneath the case.

    Also, check to see if the front panel can come off. Some desktops actually have to have this removed and a screw or two is holding the case together.

Sir,

  1. Press and hold the power button down for 10 seconds.
  2. Make sure that the power and hard disk light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are on.
  3. Check the power cable connections:
    • From the electrical outlet to the AC adapter.
    • If applicable, make sure the LED on the AC Adapter lights.
    • From the AC adapter to the notebook.
    • Make sure that the power strip is on.
    • Make sure that the surge protector is on.

  4. Try another electrical outlet.
  5. Disconnect any external devices, like PC cards, digital cameras, or external drives.
  6. Disconnect the notebook from the docking station (if applicable). Remove any power strips and surge protectors. Plug the power cord directly from the notebook into the electrical outlet.
  7. Remove the battery and reinstall the battery. Refer to the documentation that came with the notebook.
  8. Remove any newly installed software or hardware.
  9. Remove any additional memory. Refer to the documentation that came with the notebook for memory removal instructions.

SOURCE: RAM upgrade for Gateway model MFATXNIN NMZ 300L?

Hi,
The system takes PC133 SDRAM, as far as i know without performing a BIOS flash it can take up to 1GB (2x512MB) most of these PC's are restricted to 2x256 so a BIOS flash could be imminent in this case.


Good luck

SOURCE: How do I open the case on a gateway (GM) MFATXNIN NMZ 300L ?

There's a security screw on the back that needs to be removed to allow the front latch to release the side panel. It's the stupidest most confusing case ever. The latch is very hard to see, it's part of the black plastic in the front, just push down on things until you see one move a bit. It's sort of like a car door handle movement.

The disc tray of my Xbox 360 console does not open


If the tray does not open when you press the eject button, try to manually open it. To do this:
  1. Unplug your Xbox console from the power source.
  2. Locate the manual release button on your Xbox console.

    For most Xbox consoles, the manual release button is located in a small pinhole to the left of the eject button under the disc tray.

    For some Xbox consoles, the manual release button is located under the disc tray. It can be under the "O" or the "B" in the word "XBOX" that appears on the tray.
  3. Insert a straightened paper clip or other small tool in the hole at an angle to the left. Gently push the paper clip to try to press the manual release button and partially open the disc tray. This may take several tries. Typically, a thin paper clip works better than a thick paper clip.

    If you insert the paperclip in the hole and find an obstacle, this indicates that your Xbox console's manual release button is located in a different area of the console. Look under the "O" or the "B" in the word "XBOX" that appears on the tray. If this is the case, insert the paperclip under the "O" as outlined in step C. If you find an obstacle, insert the paperclip under the letter "B”. The manual release button is located in one of these three locations.
  4. After the disc tray partially opens, pull the tray with your fingers to fully open the tray

I have a Gateway 300x Micro-Tower case circa 2002 and I can not open the case, without breaking it. I'm trying to install a new audio card and can't get at the 300x innards. Help!


Most of these towers are vertical style, therefore the big button is just to the left of the Gateway symbol. Push it in and pull the left panel away from the case.

Open the tower?


There has to be a way to open the tower. Can you tell us the manufacturer of the PC you are referring to? If there's not the standard screws on the back of the case to take off the side, there must be a release button to pull the tower up, or something to that effect.

How do I get the front cover off a Gateway tower? It is a GP7 800.


you need to provide a serial number of your computer and model. gp7800 does not say much to lookup that information for you.

in general most towers are secured with plastic tabs that are secured to the chasis of your system. what i suggest is for you to open on of the side panels and check at the back of the front panel if there are tabs securing your front panel. you don't want to force the plastic panel or those tabs as you may brake them if you apply to much force, simply move the tab to unsecure it and check all the tabs had been moved to an unlock position before jiggling with the part in order to remove it... you may also want to look if your system has a top pannel to be removed as removing this top pannel may also release other panels and may also provide acess to latches or tabs on the top part of the front panel that may allow you to unsecure these portion.

I've been trying to obtain general information on your system or any other gateway tower for you to have an idea but given how generic and also how propriatery this instructions may be is unlikely a service manual may be accessible.

with more info on your system you may want to inquire with gateway if there's a service manual with schematics by checking with them online. at this location.
