The best way to get at this is by taking the plastics apart. You want to get to a point that you can see the back of the battery so you can push it out instead of prying it. Start by removing the keyboard, then the top plastic that hold the touch pad and surrounds the keyboard. At this point you should be able to see the back side of the battery pretty well, make sure nothing has fallen into the battery bay that has made the battery kick off to one side. You should be able o work it out from there.

Spilled coffee on my gateway NV7802u notebook and now will not boot up with diagnostic cd

Regret to tell you that this may be due to multiple circuit damages as the motherboard is located rite underneath the keyboard. I suggest you not to try starting-up the laptop as this may cause further damage. Take it to a hardware shop and they would be able to diagnose the problem precisely.

Audio shortcuts are not working

I would advise not touching this yourself and returning it to the shop as they have probably caused the sound to vanish

My ACER aspire 5742G frequently turns off on its own. suggest please.


If you are using the ac adapter and your laptop still turns off frequently, you're probably having a problem with "overheating".

If you notice that the unit gets hot, or the vents are not blowing out air as normal before it turns off, surely you need to either clean the fan or replace it.

Accumulated dust in the fan will affect its performance which can cause overheating. Though the unit will not get too hot, the laptop will turn itself off to protect itself from further damage. Use a canned air to blow out dust from the fan.

If this will not work, I suggest to take the laptop to a repair shop for further diagnostic.

Hope this helps.

Sir, when ever m opening my aspire 5571 note book automatically the " COMMA" buttons keeps pressing some thing like ,,,,,,,,,, . some time it stops if i press the back space. Subhasish

try removing the (,) key and then insert it again... it may resolve the problem...
Step 1
Figure out which keys you need to remove. If it is all of the keys, then work your way out from the center. Shut down your computer before beginning.
Step 2 Press down on the key to the left of the one you want to remove.
Step 3 Wedge the long end of the cap underneath the key you want to remove. Don't force it. Just stick it in enough so that if you pry upwards, the cap meets resistance from the key.

Step 4
Pry the key off. It may go flying, so make sure you're somewhere where it can easily be found. Be careful around the exposed underside of the key. This is the button that activates the key command, and damaging it could result in a broken key.

please rate this solution...

I need to replace the keyboard on an MX6440 laptop - how do I get the computer open? I dont' want to just start prying things. Is there a repair manual online?

There is no 100 percent true way of telling you online how to get this computer open I would advise if all the scews are out of the thing on the bottom then you need a plastic wedge to help the case open its latches.

Sometimes a little prying is in order but not with metal use a plastc wedge. When in doubt let a expert do it for you.

Gateway CX2620 Swivel Screen Laptop

This is the worst solution I've ever heard. This guy is trying to steer you wrong I'm pretty sure. There is zero point in removing all the screws from under the batter/ zero point to removing the area around the power button. Absolute BS. The only part to remove is the part just above the top of the keyboard (silver strip with some black). Then by removing that you can pry the swivel black plastic cover off. Whatever you do.. do not follow Scott's writeup here. I'm telling you. It's sad it's stayed up so long.. so had to warn.

This is probably due to a bad battery or damaged powerjack. Does the laptop work when connected to a plug point?
