The power button on the Gateway NV5378u laptop is in the hinge on the right side.

Accidentally disabled touchpad


Typically on a Gateway computer there is a series of buttons on the top of the keyboard area, including a touchpad disable button. If that is not lit, press it until it lights up. Hope this helps! If not, check out this forum that might help you. Gateway nv53 touchpad does not works

Remove top


To me when you state remove the top of a laptop, you are talking about removing the Palm Rest Cover.

With the laptop closed, the top cover is the Display Cover.
This, I suppose, could be considered the 'Top' also.

At any Ol' rate here is the link to a free Service Manual, for the Gateway NV53 series of Notebook PC's.
I think you'll find it crosses directly over, to the Gateway NV52 series of Notebook PC's; which you have one of,

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-gateway

Go to the top line - Gateway 400. (400 in blue)
Drop down to the second line, scroll over, and click on the blue -
NV53

Now you can disassemble the Display Assembly, or remove the Palm Rest Cover.

If it is the Palm Rest Cover post back in a Comment.
The reason is I want to give you needed information.
The main one is the Keyboard Cable connector on the motherboard.

IF you break that ZIF connector, you are looking at MOTHERBOARD REPLACEMENT, and why I want to guide you.

(Or any of the other ZIF connectors on the motherboard.

I want to paint the outside case and the touch pad, how do I remove these?


You have to completely disassemble the laptop

1) Remove ALL power to the Notebook.

2) Follow Anti-Static Precautions

3) Remove the Display Assembly.
Disassemble the Display Assembly, until you just have the Top Cover in your hand. (Gateway term = LCD Assembly Lid )

2) Remove the Ram Memory, Wireless Card, Harddrive, Optical Drive, Keyboard Cover, Keyboard, Palm Rest, and remove the motherboard.

{ Advise using an ESD wrist strap connected to a good ground source.
Average cost is around $3 to $6.
I connect, for example, to an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of an open, empty desktop computer case.

Use a mutli-compartment container for the various screws you will remove.
Label each compartment for the area the screw/s come out of.

If no multi-compartment container is available, you can substitute with a clean egg carton. Label each egg holder.

SOME screws look VERY similar to other screws.
DO NOT mix them up! }
