Taking my laptop apart

Hello I have a Gateway 7508gx that I am in the process of fixing. i have taking out all the visible screws on the underside but it seems to be caught up by the K key. Does anyone know where any other screws are or how else i can get to the motherboard without breaking anything? thankyou

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 do I get to the power plug to repair it?


Most likely you'll have to take the whole thing apart. There are a series of screws on the underside of the PC. Also, you'll have to remove the hard drive, RAM, and battery to get to some screws as well. It's a rather painful process but people do it sometimes. If it's anything like the Toshiba I just took apart, you will have to take out the keyboard as well. Keep all those little screws separated so you will know exactly where they go back. If you put a longer screw where it doesnt need to be, you could damage the machine, not making it functional.

-Best of luck

Flash bios crash


The only 2 way to fix it is to replace the motherboard or:

Take the computer apart by removing all visible screws. And slowly and carefully removing all parts. Start with screws under keyboard on bottom of chassis. After you remove the keyboard you will see more of a hint to get the laptop apart. Go to tomshardware.com and search the site for how-to on disassembling a laptop. After you get it open you should look for your bios chip , the picture is attached here. If it is socketed you can get the numbers 
and do an
 internet search or call acer and get one from the manufacturer.
