No no no, you have to remove the panal on the keyboard where the power button is. More screws, then remove the keyboard, and what do you know, more screws.

Never worked on a gateway 9500 , but I bet with all screws removed you have to pry it apart with a screw driver in a the side cracks.. be careful.

CMOS battery gateway t-1625


Remove the keyboard and the media button panel.
Remove all the screws from the underside of the laptop.
Remove the access panels.
Remove the hard drive.

There are three screws that holds the chassis together here (inside the hard drive bay). You won't be able to completely open the chassis but now you can use a flat blade (I used a small flat head screw driver) and pry the top and bottom pieces apart.

As I mentioned, you won't be able to completely take the two chassis pieces apart but you will now have enough clearance to access the CMOS battery to the right of the headphone jack (looking at the bottom).

I used a small flat head to pop the battery out. I then used long tweezers to place the new 1220 battery on the battery tray and reached around from the hard drive bay and popped it in with my index finger.

Put everything back together in the order you took it apart.

How can I open the case of gateway solo 2150? I


There is some information on FixYa for this already which can be found at the post below. Generally with a laptop, you'll have some hidden screws under a bezel on the top of the keyboard area. You gently pop this off with a small screwdriver and underneath will be the screws that hold the keyboard in. After removing these, you generally can disassemble the rest of the laptop.

I need to replace the keyboard.


You ma by able to take the PC apart yourself.I believe most are put together the same way.I am not sure tho.I would start by taking out all the screws from the bottom and then place them in order next to the PC so you can put them back where they go again.I have recently just taken a laptop apart for the first time and it wasn't that hard.Just had to take out allot of screws and remember where they went back in.Once you have the laptop apart you'll see where everything is connected.Just take your time and you'll be fine.Where the keyboard connects to the board is a little tricky.On mine there is a clip that locks.It's long and kind of flat and I couldn't figure out how to lock it or unlock it but I did eventually.

I have taken all of the screws out of the bottom - it still won't open.


The case snaps together. Try pulling it apart. It is designed to NOT easily come apart, so you will have to gently work at it without breaking anything.

Opening a Gateway Solo 2150 laptop


I found the answer on another wed site. I tried it on my Gateway Solo 1500 and it works! The extra screws are hidden on top. You carefully remove the small face plate around the power button. I used a very small screw drive to lift it off.

Opening Gateway Solo 1400
by Aelanna - 2/3/05 11:04 AM In reply to: Gateway SOLO 1400 by hunjibunji
I'm also an A+ certified tech, but I've done notebook service for a lot of years. I just finished opening up a Gateway Solo 1400 and it was NOT easy! There are no screws holding the keyboard on the bottom of the machine. You can get the case open about 95% and there will be one area stuck, in the back near where the screen cable goes into the unit. There is a hidden screw on the top of the case next to the hinge. To get to it, you have to remove the two screws that hold the plastic hinge cover and pry off the cover. I only managed to find it after removing the keyboard, the display, and the panel with the LEDs and power button. (The screws holding the keyboard are on the top of the machine, underneath the cover with the power button on it.)

My Gateway Solo 9500


The LCD  is fine as you can see the display.

This is a backlight fault.

 

This may have been caused by dropping (breaking the backlight tubes) or the inverter circuit has become faulty.

 

This should not cost hundreds to repair.

 

I think you should talk to the seller with a view to getting your money back first though.
