It is not terribly difficult. However you do have to be delicate with this sort of thing. It takes a steady set of hands. Usually you have to take off the keyboard to get to the disc drive in most models. Once you see the drive from the top its usually secured with just one screw. Slide the old drive out slide the new one in and screw everything back in place. Oh and of course make sure your connector is securely fastened as well.

Gateway NV73 series (Win. 7) Synaptics PS/2 TouchPad not working.

At the top of your keyboard you will find some illuminated icons.
Find the one that looks like a finger on a touchpad and run
your finger over it. This activates or deactivates the touchpad.

My touchpad on my gateway nv73 is locked. How do

This happened to me and I used a mouse - couldn't figure it out. Was using the 'users guide - link from the desktop and clicked on the troubleshooting guide. It mentioned a touchpad lock was included on 'some models'
So I scanned my keyboard and found nothing. I noticed that there was a picture lit up at the top of the keyboard - above the buttons. It's a rectangle with a hand pointing a finger over it. It's right where it shows you when your hard drive is accessed, cap's are on, etc.
It doesn't seem like a button but when you touch this picture it toggles the keyboard on and off.
This is the second time I had this problem - thank goodness I finally figured it out. Gateway should tell you where the buttons are cause they don't look like buttons - only like indicators
