Question about Gateway Solo 5300 Notebook
Trying to remove a motherboard from a gateway solo 5300. it is stuck by the modem on the left side. don't see any more screws to remove.
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.
