    Thanks,



    I used plastic shims to keep it open when I went to pry open th other side. It sounded like I was breaking it while prying, but nothing was hurt. Replaced capacitors and it now works.

How to open the back of a model m 6332 laptop


Get a philip's head (star) screwdriver and remove all screws from the bottom of the laptop. Remove the battery and any screws revealed under the battery.

Next look for a thin straight-edge and -very gently- pry the keyboard loose; if you have trouble at this step, look underneath again for any small holes in the metal casing directly under the keyboard.

Also look for any removable rubber or plastic bumpers as these often have structural screws underneath them.

Finally, with the keyboard removed, you should see a few more screws which will at last allow the case to come apart and get to the boards underneath.

My gateway ZX4351 is too loud.. How do I open the case and clean the fans?


Depends if the fan's can even be cleaned. There will probably be several screws you will need to remove on the back, along with the stand. The edges may need to be pried open, preferably with a plastic pry bar so you don't damage the case. Once the case is open unscrew the fan and see if it has a rubber stopper in the center, possibly under a sticker. If it does then you can open that and add a drop or two of sewing machine oil and it should be quiet after. If it isn't then I'd just replace the fan.

How do you take apart a gateway zx4800-06 all in one computer to put a new hard drive in. I took the case screws off but the cover won't budge and I don't want to take a chance of damaging...


You don't need to take apart all the back cover. Only the small rectangule part where the back support is located. The hard drive is located under the small cover.

How do I get to the CAPS on my FPD2185W monitor? I removed all of the screws but I don't see how I get the plastic cover off?


You need small flat blade screw driver or tweezer to separate the front cover from the back cover starting at the bottom edge of the monitor, see some pictures here: http://s807.photobucket.com/home/budm/allalbums

How to open an LCD monitor.


I personally haven't worked on this monitor, but most monitors are held together with plastic clips on either side of the casing.

After removing the stand and all other screws, you will need to use a small flat-head screwdriver (or something of that nature) to pry apart the clips. Find the crease/gap in the plastic where the casing of the monitor comes together. Insert the screwdriver and gently twist and pry the casing apart. When you hear the first click/snap indicating the first clip has come apart, follow the gap with the screwdriver, prying it apart each time you reach an area of resistance. Do this all the way around the monitor.

Keep in mind that after you open up all the clips, the LCD panel and boards may be screwed either the front casing or most likely the back casing. So you must first unscrew the mounting screws inside the monitor to remove the back cover. Also be careful unhooking ribbon or speaker cables that attach the circuit boards of the monitor to the front casing.

Gateway fpd2185w capacitor fix question


to take solder off you can get some cross wire called DESOLDER this copper wire soaks up the old solder, by heating this new desolder the old solder will jump into it and clear your way. I like the Techspray #3 no-clean model 1822-5f
and its made in the USA!

Dead screen


There are 3 screws at the bottom of the unit. Take those out.
At the bottom get a small screwdriver and slowly start to push inbetween the plastic. there are tabs all around the side of the unit. You have to be careful and push in and it will snap open.
There isnt too much cable for the power switch, so you will have to disconnect the cable. this will allow the rest to open up.

Once you do this, 4 screws hold the LCD in place, remove these. Carefully from the bottom pivot the LCD screen. On the right hand side 4 connectors will need to be unplugged and one main cable on the left had side. Be careful not to damage the socket.

There is a metal enclosuer that has to be removed, once done open the top and remove the power board. There are about 12-14 capacitors that if you replace them. The unit should power up.

How to take apart case fpd2185w


Take something like a credit card and slide it along the seam holding one side apart while trying to pop the clips with the credit card. You will ultimately bend some positioning tabs but nothing critically to the montior.

Opening a Gateway Solo 2150 laptop


I found the answer on another wed site. I tried it on my Gateway Solo 1500 and it works! The extra screws are hidden on top. You carefully remove the small face plate around the power button. I used a very small screw drive to lift it off.

Opening Gateway Solo 1400
by Aelanna - 2/3/05 11:04 AM In reply to: Gateway SOLO 1400 by hunjibunji
I'm also an A+ certified tech, but I've done notebook service for a lot of years. I just finished opening up a Gateway Solo 1400 and it was NOT easy! There are no screws holding the keyboard on the bottom of the machine. You can get the case open about 95% and there will be one area stuck, in the back near where the screen cable goes into the unit. There is a hidden screw on the top of the case next to the hinge. To get to it, you have to remove the two screws that hold the plastic hinge cover and pry off the cover. I only managed to find it after removing the keyboard, the display, and the panel with the LEDs and power button. (The screws holding the keyboard are on the top of the machine, underneath the cover with the power button on it.)
