Keyboard to Laptop connectors

I have a Gateway Keyboard which I would like to connect to a Gateway Labtop. Is there an adapter available which would make this possible (6 pin to USB)? Where would I purchase one if there is one on the market?

Go to Amazon.com, and look up ps/2 (which is the official name for the connector type normal keyboards have) to usb adapter, and you should find a little green thing that adapts your keyboard to usb. Make sure that the usb is a male end, and the ps/2 is a female end, or you've got the wrong one.
However, before you do that, I want to let you know that I just did the same thing, and I cannot get my Gateway keyboard to work on my HP laptop through usb. I have no idea why, and I am currently trying to find a solution. So I wouldn't suggest buying it until you know how to fix it. If you figure it out let me know.

Remove top


To me when you state remove the top of a laptop, you are talking about removing the Palm Rest Cover.

With the laptop closed, the top cover is the Display Cover.
This, I suppose, could be considered the 'Top' also.

At any Ol' rate here is the link to a free Service Manual, for the Gateway NV53 series of Notebook PC's.
I think you'll find it crosses directly over, to the Gateway NV52 series of Notebook PC's; which you have one of,

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-gateway

Go to the top line - Gateway 400. (400 in blue)
Drop down to the second line, scroll over, and click on the blue -
NV53

Now you can disassemble the Display Assembly, or remove the Palm Rest Cover.

If it is the Palm Rest Cover post back in a Comment.
The reason is I want to give you needed information.
The main one is the Keyboard Cable connector on the motherboard.

IF you break that ZIF connector, you are looking at MOTHERBOARD REPLACEMENT, and why I want to guide you.

(Or any of the other ZIF connectors on the motherboard.

Keyboard doesn't work


To determine if the motherboard is faulty, connect an USB keyboard to your laptop an see if the keyboard works properly. If so then the laptop keyboard may only need the keyboard connector unplugged and then plugged back onto the motherboard.

Replace a keyboard


Most laptop keyboard are secured by screws on the bottom of the laptop. The screws that fix the keyboard may have a tiny heyboard symbol against the screw.
When you remove the keyboard screws you can then lift the keyboard off the laptop. The keyboard is connected to the motherboard via a flat ribbon cable, it may have a connector on the cable or a locking clip on the motherboard. Release this ribbom cable from the motherboard, don't pull on this cable or you may damage the ribbon cable.

Keyboard replacement, LCD screens for mobile phones, Ipodsand computer equipment are available from this WEB site.http://www.yallstore.com/index.php?main_page=advanced_search_result&search_in_description=1&zenid=1lrjst3ncshlb4c7frn9bev3c3&keyword=keyboards.

How to remove touchpad for cleaning gateway ID58 notebook Windows 7 i have all screws off back, removed battery and hard drive, silver strips on side seem to be the next step


Hi,

Power off the Gateway laptop, then disconnect the AC adapter from the power jack. Remove any other devices connected to the laptop.
2

Place your hand on a bare metal surface to release any buildup of static electricity. Close the lid to your laptop and turn the computer over.
3

Slide the battery lock over to the side to pop the battery out from its compartment.
4

Set the battery aside, then turn your computer over once again so that it's facing up. Rotate the laptop so that the back (not the bottom) is facing you.
5

Remove the two screws securing the bezel in place from the back of the laptop.
6

Open the lid to the laptop, then insert a flat-head screwdriver underneath one end of the bezel to loosen it from the top cover. The bezel is located just above the keyboard, but below the monitor.
7

Carefully remove the bezel the rest of the way. Insert the end of the flat-head screwdriver underneath the top of the keyboard to pull it away from the laptop.
8

Turn the keyboard over and place it face-down on the top cover. Remove the cable connecting the keyboard to the motherboard. You may need to pull back and unlock a connector securing the cable in place.
9

Set the keyboard aside. Remove the four screws located just beneath the display panel, then remove the cable connecting the monitor to the motherboard. Carefully set the LCD display aside.
10

Remove the four screws located near the center of the top cover. Release small blue and white cable connecting the touchpad to the Gateway laptop.
11

Pull the top cover up from the base of the laptop, removing the touchpad along with it.

We have a desktop computer((Model: GATEWAY 838GM) misplace the ADAPTER for the CPU which one to get please thanks


sallyduby we may have some confusion here.

CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short.

CPU does not refer to a Personal Computer. At least not since the 1960's, and not unless you wish to confuse someone with the wrong reference. ;)

This is Gateway Support > Gateway 838GM Desktop PC > Main Support page,

http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/5389/5389nv.shtml

In the list click on Components.

A) There is no adapter device for the CD drive, or DVD drive, unless this is a mistaken reference to the flat ribbon data cable

B) There is no adapter device for the Harddrive, unless this is a mistaken reference to the SATA data cable that connects the SATA harddrive to the motherboard.

C) There IS possibly an adapter for the Keyboard, if you are using a Keyboard with a USB connector on the end of the cable, and are not using the original Keyboard that has a PS/2 connector.

Example;

http://www.directron.com/freeusbps2.html

D) There is no adapter for the Media Card Reader, unless this is a mistaken reference to the data cable that connects the Media Card Reader to the motherboard.

E) There are no adapters for the Ram Memory module/s.

F) There are no adapters for the Modem. The Modem plugs straight into the motherboard.

G) There are no adapters for the Motherboard, unless a USB mouse, or again a USB keyboard, is being used.
The same style of adapter for the USB Keyboard will also work for a USB mouse.

H) There is no adapter for the Power Supply, unless this is a reference to a power cable adapter that could go to a computer case fan, from a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable.

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#peripheral

(The 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable, and it's connector, are shown in the middle photo.
The Harddrive example/s shown is an IDE {PATA} harddrive. This style of Harddrive uses a 4-pin standard Peripheral power cable)

I) There is no adapter for the Intel Pentium 4 CPU {Processor} (3.0GHz, 800MHz FSB)

The motherboard has an LGA 775 processor socket.
The Processor has the socket holes, while the processor socket has the pins.
775 socket holes, 775 pins.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_775

Unless this is a mistaken reference to the Fan/Heatsink combo that sits on top of the CPU.

Typical Fan/Heatsink combo example of Processors (CPU's) using an LGA 775 processor socket,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2943299&CatId=493

(Except the Gateway version is square)

J) No adapter for the Speakers unless I am mistaken.

Post back in a Comment, and give at least a general description of the adapter you are referencing to.

2.Place your hand on a bare metal surface to release any buildup of static electricity. Close the lid to your laptop and turn the computer over.

3.Slide the battery lock over to the side to pop the battery out from its compartment.

4.Set the battery aside, then turn your computer over once again so that it's facing up. Rotate the laptop so that the back (not the bottom) is facing you.

5.Remove the two screws securing the bezel in place from the back of the laptop

6. Open the lid to the laptop, then insert a flat-head screwdriver underneath one end of the bezel to loosen it from the top cover. The bezel is located just above the keyboard, but below the monitor

7. Carefully remove the bezel the rest of the way. Insert the end of the flat-head screwdriver underneath the top of the keyboard to pull it away from the laptop.

8. Turn the keyboard over and place it face-down on the top cover. Remove the cable connecting the keyboard to the motherboard. You may need to pull back and unlock a connector securing the cable in place.
