I disagree. The procedure is so easy no Service Manual is needed
1) Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter, and Battery.
2) Open the laptop.
The plastic frame in front of the LCD screen is the Display Bezel. (Gateway? Believe they call it the LCD Panel Bezel)
Down in the BOTTOM corners, next to the Hinges, are screws to be removed. One in each bottom corner.
There are Screw Covers over these screws. The Screw Covers need to be removed. Little round covers I believe to be made of plastic. (Some models they are made of synthetic rubber)
I use a computer pick to Gently remove them. Some use the tip of an X-Acto knife. I do not recommend this as there is a possibility of injury. Perhaps a large darning needle. (Needle you sew with, but is Large in size)
Pick up at one edge of Screw Cover. Screw Covers are held on by a type of rubber cement. I LIGHTLY stick them to the Display Bezel for safekeeping.
(Yes. They like to stick to the tool, your fingers, and it seems passing jets in the sky. If you are careful with them, you should be able to reuse them. If they do not stick anymore, use a toothpick, and apply a TINY dab of rubber cement to them/it )
Once the Screw Covers are removed use a No.1 Philips screwdriver, or equivalent Jewelers screwdriver; to remove the 2 screws.
The Display Bezel has TABS going around the exterior perimeter, of it's inside edges. These Tabs snap into matching LATCHES on the Display Cover.
You can come from the Outside edge, where the Display Bezel meets the Display Cover, and use a thick guitar pick.
The guitar pick is wedged into the parting line, of where the Display Bezel meets the Display Cover.
Once a 'crack' is formed in-between the two, then the fingertips are used to gently start popping the bezel from the cover.
You slowly go along with your fingertips, and work along the top, then sides. By the time you have both sides almost loose, the Display Bezel usually pops off.
I like the flex method. Come to the inside edge of the Display Bezel. Where it meets the LCD screen. I suggest start on the Right side/Middle.
Use a fingertip, and lift up the inside edge of the Display Bezel up a little. Can't lift up at that spot? Move over. You are at a Tab/Latch.
With this spot lifted up a little, use the fingertip of the other hand, and slide under next to it. Now use your fingertips as wedges, and pop the Display Bezel loose a little at a time.
I start at the Right side/Middle as stated. Left hand fingertips go DOWN the right side, Right hand fingertips go UP the right side. Then I go across the Top, and down the Left side.
MOST of the time, as stated; the Display Bezel usually pops off when right side, and left side are most of the way popped loose. NOT always though!
Sometimes you have to pop EACH and EVERY Tab/Latch loose.
Also; watch around the Hinge area/s. Display Bezel can get hung up around them. Go slow, and gently work the Display Bezel off, around the Hinge areas.
Display Bezel popped off, sit back; relax. You just did the hard part. Wasn't so tough, huh?
This is what the Display Bezel looks like removed,

Hi, activate the touch screen, touch the middle of the screen 3 times slowly until you see the OPT in the LCD. press the middle big button on the side of the watch once until you see the 24H screen, then hold down the same side middle button for 5 seconds, the display will then say SYNCRO.
You first move the hour hand with the top and bottom side buttons to 12 touch the middle of your screen to set then move the minute hand to 12 as straight as you can, then press the middle of the screen to set to exact digital time. Thanks Mark ;-)
