Gateway 610 k/b & mouse unrecognized..CMOS problem??

We have a Gateway 610 multimedia center (all-in-one). It is about 4 yrs old and the warranty expired inFeb 2008. About 2 weeks ago we had thunderstorms blow through our area unexpectedly and we did not unplug the surgeprotector. The next day, our wireless keyboard and mouse were not working. They were working the previous day. The computer boots up fine but we are unable to move the cursor and no keyboard activity; almost as if they are not being recognized. A new wireless (micro innovations) k/b and mouse are not recognized. All batteries are good. We have tried syncronizing them but nothing. A known working corded mouse and keyboard do not work either. Being a wireless k/b and mouse, there was nothing plugged into any of the ports at the time of the tstorm. A new wireless keyboard and mouse does not work either. Any suggestions? is the motherboard and/or USB ports fried?? Could the CMOS battery be bad (which in my humble opinion is the most likely)? Thank you to all who have attempted to resolve this issue but none of the suggestions work. Very odd problem...

It's not the K/M, there probably was a surge that went through, and effected the motherboard in the computer. so you can take it to your local computer shop. But, before you bring it there, back up your important files because they might have to format your HD.

What is the correct battery for the BIOS memory for a Gateway model 4025GZ notebook ?

Method.

When your Gateway computer is switched off, it still keeps track of various system information such as the date and time, thanks to a small battery that never powers off. The size and thickness of a dime, the CMOS battery can run out and need to be replaced. You can swap out a dead CMOS battery with a new one by removing the Gateway computer's side access panel.

Difficulty: Moderate
Instructions Things You'll Need:

  • Phillips-head screwdriver

  • CMOS battery replacement

  1. 1

    Shut down the computer. Remove the power cable from the back of the computer case. Disconnect the cables for the monitor, mouse, keyboard, and printer.

  2. 2

    Set the computer case over on its side. Use the Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the two case screws at the far left end of the case.

  3. 3

    Slide the side access panel to the left and remove it from the computer case. Find the CMOS battery port, which will be located to the lower left of the processor in most Gateway computer models.

  4. 4

    Lift up the plastic clip holding the CMOS battery in place. Slide a fingernail under one side of the battery and lift it off the motherboard port.

  5. 5

    Check the orientation of the new battery and compare it to the CMOS motherboard port. Push the new battery into place in the same direction that the old battery was facing. Push down the plastic clip.

  6. 6

    Set the side access panel back onto the Gateway computer case and reattach the case screws. Plug in the Gateway computer and power it on.

Need basic instrux on how to exchange hard drives from one gateway media center 610 to another


take off the cover and unplug the hd from one and put it in the next one, it is only 2 plugs and you can not plug them in wrong it will be a 4 pin power cord coming from the power supply and a data cable, depending on how old your computer is it will be a small cable with a black connector or a larger one that looks like a ribbion either one you can not plug them in the wrong way. The power plug you can put anyone of the extra ones into it! If it fits it will work, depending on if the hardware in the two computers, you most likley will have to repair or reinstall windows!

Newer monitor to older xp pc


If your monitors are displaying "no signal" they aren't receiving input from the video card. If your PC has two video outputs (onboard) try charging to the other output to see if it will come on. Also reseat your video card in its slot. Also, what can you see that lets you know the keyboard and mouse are not working?
