Question about Gateway MX6448 Notebook

Replacing the whole monitor screen and bezel

I have a perfectly running gateway MX6448 notebook with a broken monitor. I have a replacement monitor and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions as to how to remove the old one? I have the screen and bezel both, so I would assume it is removed at the hinges and then plugged into the MOBO. Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Ron

Usually there is a plastic cover that snaps off right about the keyboard that covers the hinges. It is sometimes screwed from the bottom of the notebook thought. Once that is removed you should have a clearer view of what needs to be done. Sometimes there is a few screws from the bottom or back of the system that hold the hinges and sometimes the screws are on top of the hinges. You should also see all the cables that go from the screen to the system, unplug those. Hopefully that is all you need to do, but sometimes you have to remove the keyboard and palmrest to get the screen off. Good Luck!

Replacing laptop hinges


There are 2 set of cable that run from the display to the monitor, be very careful with it. In most cases, to remove these cables you need to disassemble the whole laptop. Now, since you are on Y changing the hinges, I think you can do it, just don't pull on the monitor too hard, and it needs to be place on a flat surface very close to the laptop. It's not that hard, you just need to be careful, that's all.

I need to replace the inverter in my gateway 7210gx. How do I remove the bezel around the screen?


Remove the screws that are mounted underneath the rubber bumpers. Then carefully pry open the bezel.

If these are the only symptoms, then chances are the problem is either (1) a bad battery that is no longer retaining a charge or (2) the charger is not charging either because it is bad or the plug on the laptop is broken (which is repairable but maybe costly due to labor cost (approx 1-1.5 hr task)). I presuming it is not under warranty.

If there are other symptoms, it would require testing to determine; not a task for a DIYer except if it's a bad battery or bad charger.

Gateway left hinge broke


Definately an easy fix.

I suggest looking on eBay for a donor chassis.
Sometimes they can be had relatively cheap CLICK HERE (this one has both hinges broken however) - and sometimes just the parts you are looking for are available CLICK HERE (this is for the RHS one though).

An entire donor PC is adviseable, because usually the repair is not just the hinge that broke - as the rest of the lid is plastic!

Once the trim above the keyboard is pried off, you will see the monitor cable, and hinge screws.

The trim around the monitor must be dis-assembled and pried into 2 parts.
Then the hinge & Support are either screwed into the side of the screen, or the back of the lid.

Most look like this...

Replace reverse of removal.

HERE is a link that will describe it better and give you a visual reference.
You are interested in step #s 7, 8, 11, 12

Once the screen is free of the chassis - its time to remove the little rubber scerw covers in the lid, and disassemble.

Good Luck!! Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!

Gateway MX6448 Broken hinge mount


They are probably available at: http://www.mundocorp.com/mx6448.html but this is not a task for a DIYer.

Unless you have the tools/experience to dis-assemble / re-assemble, I strongly recommend you have repaired by a competent shop or contact me (consult@jasb.com) pls reference this response.

No display on screen and solid amber light on pcs' power button


it seems to be an issue with the power supply as you already tried replacing the motherboard
power supply will be less expensive do try to get it replaced first

do check that monitor iss fine
unplug the blue VGA cable which connects your monitor to the tower
if a 4 colored box moves all over the screen the monitor is fine
and if it doesn't
get the monitor either repaired or get it replaced.

The biggest removable door held on by about 6 screws on the bottom of your laptop is what you need to remove. Once inside you will see your heatsink! Very easy to access, I wish you luck.
