Hi willsim , are you mean you have open your gateway laptop to see your motherboard?
you don't want to take off keyboard and all, just turn your laptop in back side you will find sticker and about brand r product name remove it so that u can screw to open your lap top ,in some laptop u can see no of screw visibly, remove it so that u can see *********** board , but its hardly recommended to not open your laptop by yourself , cause if you remove the stickers mean your warranty may be lost. if any more assistance feel free to ask

What is the maximum memory on a Gateway MX8734 laptop?

Hi Anon
the Gateway MX8734 motherboard has two memory slots each capable of handling a maximum of 2gb of ram.
So, 2gb is the largest single ram module, and 4gb is the largest total amount of ram.
If you are uncertain if your motherboard is capable of handling a 4gb ram upgrade then check with the memory suppliers first.
In practice I have always found that the performance difference between 2gb and 4gb of ram is slight.

Bios reinstall

To reset the BIOS back to the default settings and you cannot locate the reset jumper, just remove the BIOS battery for approx. 30 mins.
This will discharge the battery voltage in the BIOS, then insert the BIOS battery back and you can go into the BIOS configuration and set the Date and Time etc.

My gateway mx8734 powers on but won't boot, no bios screen, beep, nothing?

In that case the BIOS is corrupted and the only ones that can fix that are the repair shop of the dealer. If you have to send it to them then it's not worth it, just buy a new one, it will be cheaper.

Mx8734 laptop, system board replacment instructions. The brown connecor which holds the keyboard in is broken. Can just the connector be purchased without the system board. If the system board needs...

If you broke the connector, you have to get a new board. The connector is fastened to it.
If you opened up the case and can see the board, you generally have to remove all the stuff--connectors, modem, hard drive, CD, etc.
When you get everything unplugged, you will have to remove the screws and then lift the board out.
Pay attention to where the screws go--they are of different sizes.

I have the same problem with mine no power

I have an MX8734 and it died on me. I have 3 batteries and 2 power adapters but there is a bigger problem at work here!

These computers (almost all gateways) have a big power supply plug (connected to motherboard) defect. They are a $6 part but the moboards are $400!

You can send it to a computer repair shop but beware,,, as some don't know how to fix plug and will tell you its the motherboard. Because its a defect it can happen again after repair. Gateway doesn not repair units anymore as acer bought them and a 3rd party is doing warranties (or not doing them from what I hear).

If I was you I would: A) Have a shop that can fix plug do it.
B) Put it on Ebay for parts (worth about $200),
C) Have a real expensive (but satisfying) target at the ol range.
