Gateway likes to give out manuals, like they like to give out free money.
Plus info on All-In-One Desktop PC's is sparse.

It is my belief that with this model, after the Back Cover is removed, there are screws on the inside to remove; in order to remove the Display Bezel in front.

You may have to remove a few components to access the screws.
Screws along the Top, Bottom, and Side inside edges..
Probably 3 to 4 screws along the Top, and Bottom; 1 to 2 screws on each side.

Plus, All-In-One desktop PC's are built like a laptop.
Everything crammed inside one 'box', and you cannot relieve Static electricity by touching it's metal parts.

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

Relieve your body of Static BEFORE reaching inside your computer.
For this one you need to wear an ESD wrist strap, and have it's alligator clip attached to a good ground source.

Average cost is around $3 to $6. Compare that to the price of replacing the All-In-One.
One example,

http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103245

I connect to an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of an open, empty desktop computer.

You can set a large metal serving tray (Unpainted), on the table you're working on, and connect to it.
Or perhaps a large metal knickknack. (Unpainted)

Now I'd like to ask Edwin, when you go to disassemble, how about writing your progress down as you go?
Then like kimbokasteniv's information, post your disassembly guide back in a Comment.
No guide has been posted to my knowledge, of replacing the touchscreen.

Your info will help a lot of people who read this solution in the future, and it will be authored by you.
If someone needs the guide in the future, I will post the link to THIS solution.

Credit will go to you.

Removing dvd drive from pc


Computer unplugged from power, computer Side Panel removed, follow Anti-Static Precautions.

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

Relieve your body of Static, BEFORE reaching inside your unplugged from power computer.

Computer on a table, computer case open, computer unplugged from power;
TOUCH an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

IF, you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again upon your return.

Disconnect the power cable to the optical drive (CD/DVD drive), and the data cable.

The front plastic piece of the desktop computer is the Front Panel.
The Front Panel removes.
The Front Panel must be removed in order to replace the optical drive/s.

WHEN removing the Front Panel, GO S-L-O-W.

The Power On switch, Power On LED light, Harddrive activity LED light, USB front panel ports, etc; may be attached to the Front Panel.
You do NOT want to pull their wires loose from the motherboard.

In fact you may wish to make drawings, and notes as to where the wires connect; on the motherboard before removing the Front Panel.

Some Front Panels are just Covers, and the above does not need to be taken into consideration.

Look inside the computer case, and look towards the front, or Front Panel.
The Front Panel should have TABS coming from it, and go through slots in the metal framework, of the computer case.

The Tabs are plastic formed out of the plastic Front Panel.
They have a flat hook on the end. Each tab must be carefully pushed towards the Inside, or Outside, in order for the hooked end to clear the slot. Then when the Front Panel is removed, the tab will slide out of the slot.

Allow me to show you, using an HP desktop computer for an example, (Video)

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00968624&tmp_task=useCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&lc=en&product=3436817

Your tabs probably won't be so easily accessible, though.
Bear this in mind. They ARE THERE, I assure you.

How do i remove cover


Viewing FRONT of computer the LEFT Side panel removes.

Viewing REAR of computer there are two Thumbscrews to loosen.
One towards the Top, one towards the Bottom.
(Not supposed to come all the way out, but OK if they do)

There is a 'bulge', or 'bump' formed at the back of the Side Panel.
This is a fingerpull handle.
Pull back on the Side Panel towards the Rear of the computer.

The Side Panel will only slide so far. This is because there are metal L-shaped tabs formed out of the Side Panel, that go into slots in the metal framework, of the computer case.

The L-shaped tabs are like a hook. You may have to ease the Side Panel a little forward, then the L-shaped tabs will clear the slots, and the Side Panel can be brought out to the side, and removed.

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.
Relieve your body of Static BEFORE reaching inside your unplugged from power, computer.

Computer on a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open;
TOUCH an unpainted surface, if the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

IF, you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again upon your return.

May I ask what the problem is, or is this for a simple upgrade?

Long beeps at start up


Indicates problem with Ram Memory.

Computer on a table, computer unplugged from power, FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions.

Remove all Ram Memory modules, ("Stick'), clean the gold plated contact pins with an eraser.
If you use an eraser on the end of a pencil, and not a solid eraser, refrain from letting the metal band of the pencil, touch the gold plated contact pins.

Rub up, and down on EACH contact pin, BOTH sides. Doesn't take much pressure, or rubbing.
In fact when you are done it may seem like you have done nothing at all.
The contact pins may not be bright, and shiny. I assure you that you have cleaned them. Doesn't take much 'corrosion' to make a bad contact surface.

Use air to remove the eraser dust. You can use a can of compressed air for computers if available, or air pressure from your mouth will be sufficient.
Reinstall all Ram Memory modules.

Handle the Ram Memory modules by the BODY.
The Body is everywhere on the Ram Memory module EXCEPT the gold plated contact pins at the bottom.
The Body is coated with a see-through protective plastic.

How to get out a disk I dropped in the machine? Emachines all.in.one ez1601


All-In-One desktop computer disassembly isn't usually posted.
Technology is still new enough, and required skills needed, dissuade the imparting of this information.

Plus eMachines is about worthless for support info anyway, lol!

A) Construction, and design of the machine dictate a laptop type of environment.
All the hardware components are crammed into one tiny box, with very little cooling inside, and the monitor is attached. (LCD screen)

Going inside the all-in-one means you had better wear an ESD wrist strap, and have the alligator clip attached to a good ground source.

Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.
Wear an ESD wrist strap, or prepare to use your all-in-one for an expensive doorstop, if you don't.

Cost averages from $3 to $6. One example,

Monitor dont works


Buzzer 3 times from buzzer component on motherboard, not from the Processor.

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

Buzzing, or beeps actually, that you hear are BIOS Beep Codes. The computer's way of telling you something is wrong, and an area to look into for it.

3 beeps generally means a problem with the Ram Memory.
Computer unplugged from power, Anti-Static Precautions FOLLOWED, suggest removing all Ram Memory module/s ('Stick'), and clean the gold plated contact pins with a pencil eraser.

1) Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate hardware components inside a computer.
Relieve your body of Static BEFORE working on your computer.

Computer on a table, computer Unplugged from power, computer case open;
TOUCH an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

IF you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again upon your return.

2) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Generic_DDR_Memory_%28Xytram%29.jpg

[You can click on the photo to enlarge ]

If you are using an eraser on the end of a pencil, and not a solid eraser, refrain from letting the metal band on the pencil, touch the gold plated contact pins.

Everywhere on the Ram Memory module EXCEPT the gold plated contact pins at the bottom; is the BODY.
The Body is coated with a see-through protective plastic.
Handle the Ram Memory module by the Body.

Rub up, and down on each gold plated contact pin. BOTH sides.
Doesn't take much pressure, nor rubbing to clean a contact.
(Maybe 6 to 8 times up, and down)
In fact when you are done, the contact pins may not look bright, and shiny.
They are clean I assure you. Doesn't take much 'corrosion' to make a bad contact surface. (Gold isn't supposed to corrode)

Use air to remove the eraser dust. If you have a can of compressed air available use it. If not air pressure from your mouth will be sufficient.
If the air is available use it to clean out the Ram Memory slots also.
Reinstall all Ram Memory modules.
(Make sure they are seated tight, and locked in)

Make sure the inside of the computer is clean, and to include the inside of the unplugged from power Power Supply, the best that you can.

Took the cover off to clean the dust off the fans put it back together it will turn on and fans will run but wont boot


1) Side Cover off; Observe whether the fan that pushed air over the Processor is operating.

2) Remove all ram memory modules, and reseat them.
Doesn't take much to bump a ram memory module ('Stick') loose.

Although they may appear to be correctly seated in the their individual ram slots, it is just added assurance to remove, and replace them.

3) Computer was unplugged from power, and if you reached inside, you did observe Anti-Static Precautions, correct?

Anti-Static Precautions:

Your body carries Static electricity.
Static will fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.
You must relieve your body of Static BEFORE, reaching inside your computer.

Computer unplugged from power, Touch the metal frame of the open computer case, to relieve your body of Static.

As also has been stated, make sure all cables all plugged in tightly.

Replace on/off switch dimension 8200?


The On/Off switch is the Power On switch.

The switch itself is tiny, and is located inside the plastic Power On button assembly.
There are plastic tangs on the Power On button, which hold the switch in place.

I use a hair dryer set on low heat, to gently heat the tangs so they will spread easily, to remove the switch. (Move the hair dryer slowly back, and forth)

You can also set the Power On assembly in a bowl of Very warm water, to temporarily soften the tangs.
(The switch is no good anyway. Dry the plastic Power on assembly before installing the new switch)

This switch is usually a replacement,

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

To remove the Power On button assembly the computer case is opened.

BEFORE you start, the computer Must be unplugged from power, and you should observe anti-static precautions.

Your body carries Static electricity. Static will fry out (Short Circuit) the components inside a computer.

You can either,
1) Buy a $6 ESD wrist strap, connect the wrist band to your wrist, and connect the alligator clip to the metal frame of the open computer case,
OR,
2) You simply touch the metal frame of the open computer case to relieve your body of static.

(Again, computer unplugged from power.
Also, IF you get up, and walk away, when you return TOUCH the metal frame again)

This is Dell Support, and the Service Manual for the Dell Dimension 8200 desktop computer,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim8200/

To open the computer case:
Click on Opening the Computer Cover

The computer cover opens like a clamshell.
Observe where the cables (Wires) go to the motherboard, from the Front of the computer case.

You may wish to make a drawing, and notes.
Dell DOES NOT state where the wires go.
If any wires are accidentally bumped loose, you will have a schematic made by you, of where they go.

As you proceed, state any problems you are having, and let's see if I can rectify them with information. Simply state in a Comment.
