Question about Gateway CX210X Notebook
I believe that my DC power plug on my Gateway CX210X motherboard has gone bad. I have replacement ordered but can't find a decent disassembly guide anywhere. I have attempted to take the laptop apart but can't get the mothboard completely out of the housing. Can someone point me towards a diagram or guide or even just give some instructions that might be of help? Thank!
Ok I just did this on my Gateway it is a different model though. I am not sure where you are stuck so I will start from the beginning. Remove all the screws from the back, then remove all the components (hard drive, cd rom, network card, battery etc.) beneath these components are more screws remove them. I do not know if you have removed your keyboard if not there are screws attatching it to the motherboard on the bottom remove those mine had three in various places like by the network card and dvd rom. If you are unsure consuly gateways website there are instructions for removing your keyboard. Beneath the keyboard there are more screws you will need to remove the monitor adapter in the rear unplug it from the motherboard and beneath it there are more screws. When you think you have removed them all gently pull on the motherboard from every side if it moves freely on eachside you are ready to dislodge it from the casing. If there is a location that is still firmly in place inspect that area from the top and bottom you should be able to locate the remaining screw.
The mother board does not slip out once all screw are removed it is lodged firmly in the case especially by the fan vent you have to coax it out.
