How do I replace a keyboard on a Gateway NE522?


Laptop keyboard replacement procedures are all similar,

Search on the internet for how to replace ne552 keyboard (or similar). You my find quite a number of nearly relevant instructional videos and step-by-step instructions, referring to slightly different models..Look at a few and see how similar they are, pick one and follow it eg
Replace Keyboard Gateway Laptop or
Replace Keyboard on Gateway Laptop NE56R
What you really need is the maintenance & service manual, but there doesn't seem to be one. You might try contacting Gateway support and asking.
Keyboards for your model are readily available, on ebay or from commercial parts suppliers, even Gateway

How do I replace the keyboard on a Gateway LT3119U?


Visit the Gateway support document website and locate the "User's Guide" section of the listings for your laptop model.


You should be able to locate either a "component replacement manual," or a document focusing specifically on replacement of the keyboard for that model (as different models of keyboards have slightly different methods of removing the keyboard.)


You may also wish to check the FAQ's in the support documents of your model, as they may also contain information on replacing the keyboard.


Power down your Gateway laptop and remove the battery.


This will not only ensure that you don't accidentally damage your laptop by powering it up while working on its components, but may also be necessary to reach the mounting screws for your laptop's keyboard.


Press the power button once after the battery has been removed to discharge any remaining electricity that the laptop may have stored.


Consult the support documents for your Gateway laptop model and find out where the keyboard mounting screws are located.


There will most likely be between two and five screws, depending on the specific model of laptop that you own.


You may be required to remove the keyboard bezel (the strip of plastic that runs along the top of the keyboard) in order to reach some or all of the screws; this can be done either by sliding the bezel off to the right of the laptop or by simply lifting it off once loosened (though you may need to use a coin or flat-head screwdriver to detach clips or pry the bezel out of its resting location.)


Remove the screws holding the keyboard in place.

The screws will either be located on the bottom of the laptop (under the space that the battery occupies) or beneath the keyboard bezel.


Put the screws in a safe place where they will not be lost, since you will need to use them to secure the new keyboard.


Lift the keyboard up from the bottom, detaching the keyboard connector and pulling the keyboard itself free from the Gateway laptop, then setting it aside.


You may need to once again use a coin or flat-head screwdriver in order to depress clips which might be holding the keyboard in place.)


Plug your new keyboard into the keyboard connector, then carefully place it back into the space previously occupied by your old keyboard.


If the keyboard is designed to be held in place by clips, press down with sufficient pressure to clip the keyboard into place.

Replace the screws that you had previously removed from the Gateway laptop.


Make sure that the screws are firmly in place both to ensure that the keyboard is secure and also to eliminate any potential problems with replacing the bezel or battery.


Reattach the bezel (if you removed it) and the laptop battery, making sure that all components have been reattached and are firmly secured.


Once the battery is back in place, press the power button to power up the Gateway laptop and give your operating system a chance to recognize the newly-installed keyboard.


hope this helps

Where can you buy the keyboard? my son has ripped some keys off and I do not know where to find either the little plastic replacement springs or a full keyboard.


Here a couple of links where you can find a replacement keyboard: http://www.sunvalleyus.com/GatewayKeyboard/ http://www.nextag.com/gateway-keyboard/shop-html http://www.papatek.com/Gateway-Keyboard/ http://www.amazon.com/DekCell-Laptop-Keyboard-Gateway-MX6000/dp/B000NJYHRA
It depends also on the model of your laptop.
You can also buy just the keys and put them yourself: http://www.laptop-keys.com/Select%20Model.php?model=Gateway Also here is a guide, if you want to do it yourself: (do not delete) utube.png

My battery light notifies my the battery is low so I plug in to the AC power and it still shuts off.


How long between plugging in and shut down? Many times what happens is it has already initiated the shut down sequence before you plug it in.

To prevent this, keep an eye on the power meter (put it in the systray if not already there) and proactively plug in the AC before it warns you. e.g. if it warns you at 10% when you see it reach 15% plug it in.
