Here's what you gotta do. You have to remove the keyboard, which is pretty easy. I took 2 razor blades for utility knives and gently pressed in the 2 tabs that hold it in- the one on the left is located between the "alt" key and spacebar, while the one on the right is between the windows and "ctrl" key. It'll pop up slightly, then you can lift it out. You'll want to remove its electrical connector too. Now, look at the edge of the plastic on the left side where the heat sink is...you'll see one small screw that's holding you back. Once you remove that, unplug the other 2 visible electric connectors and you're good to go.

Wireless switch on model solo 5300


Hi. Not enough information. Do you want a switch? Do you need to FIND a switch? Is it a Gateway notebook?
The specifications for the Gateway Solo 5300 do not indicate a wireless system as part of the original unit.
See:

Most units with PC100 memory (like this one) did not come with wireless. You will likely need a wireless PCMCIA card.

Don't remember password on bios of a gateway solo


Simplest is to remove the battery for a while so the password is lost.

PLEASE HELP GATEWAY SOLO 5300. CAN'T OPEN INTERNET EXPLORER


Hi, I can help you with this. Do you have a wireless router? Do you have DSL or cable modem? If you would like to chat online about it, I can walk you through a few things to try. There isn't enough information here in your problem description to solve it without talking to you in some way. I could also do a phone call if you don't have two machines at home. Let me know if you would like to do that. Thank you.
