Steprod replacing that on your own without technical expertise in that area will be difficuly and could worsen the problem and perhaps even cause the rise of other secondary problems. Having it replaced at the place you purchased the laptop wouldn't cost much and ensure that things are done correctly and the replacement keyboard is compatible. If you want you could also copy and paste the following URL into your browser for additional information and service and repair offered at this site:

Let me know how it goes.

If it is desktop as you have mentioned then this is not a big job sir.

just remove the existing one and plug in a new one.

    but Gateway Solo 2550 is a note book.

    since you mentioned it as a desktop i gave you that simple solution.

    for replacing the keyboard you will have to remove the back of the notebook and remove the screws and get the front cover off.

    after doing this you can be able to remove the keyboard. but you wont be able to replace the touch pad.

    for replacing the touch pad you will have to remove the whole unit very carefully sir.

    thank you

I received the replacement keyboard for my Gateway laptop computer without the "easy to read instructions". I was hoping that these instructions for removal of the defective keyboard and...

The best I could find was the product page for the keyboard. Otherwise you'll need to either contact the people who you bought it off or use a general guide for replacing keyboard such as this one. It does have laptop - specific instructions for some Gateway laptops - hopefully you'll hit lucky!

You could try searching specifically for "(your laptop make & model number) keyboard replacement guide" if the above link does not work. Google usually has the answers! Alternatively if you provide me with the model number I could have a look around for you.

Hope this helps and good luck!

I need to disconnect the cmos battery, but don't know where it is on a gateway solo laptop 2550. please help!

Take it apart and look for it. That is the only way to find it. You will have to cross the connections to clear it while it boots up. It looks like a coin.
