1) The Keyboard Cover is removed, the Keyboard is removed, but set aside with the Keyboard cable still attached.

Its a pretty simple procedure. open your computer up and locate the battery use a non-magnetic flat-head screwdriver to pop it out and put the new battery in (sidenote:always unplug everything connected to the computer and press the power button so no electricity is flowing.)

It is, like almost all "sound cards" are these days, integrated into the mainboard chipset. If is fails, mainboard replacement is the only solution for a notebook.

Gateway mx6214 will not powerup -bought a new power cord and it still doesn't work. What could be the problem?

It is the plug in the laptop that is most likely the cause, plug the power supply in the laptop. Now put your thumb on the plug at the laptop, as you bend it sideways hit the power button repeatedly to see if it will power up, failing that take the main battery out of the laptop and use power supply only. Please take the main battery out first to see if your power supply will start the computer if the computer starts up change the battery.

My internet connection via Ethernet vanishes when i disable my wireless connection. how can i keep this from happening. it's on a old Gateway MX6214 PC Notebook.

Sounds like it's connecting through wireless so when it's switched off, it stops.

Go to 'my computer' if you're using XP and right click, click 'properties'.

Go to hardware, then Device manager.

Look downlown list and choose 'network adaptors'.

See if both wireless and ethernet are working OK. Use properties to check.

I have a Gateway MX6214 and the fan quit working. It comes on when I start and shut off the computer. I know it can work why doesn't it run during use? Any suggestions?

The fan in laptop generally run at startup and once there is a need. They generally just cool the cpu (processor) when needed. Once the laptop is not showing signs of overheating. There is no need to worry.

Gateway 450ROG CMOS BatterySmall internal battery that maintains calendar and clock settings.

PLEASE NOTE: This is not the battery that powers your laptop; it only maintains certain internal settings. If you need a main battery, please refer to the page on our web site for your laptop model.

CMOS batteries are located on the motherboard; if you are not comfortable with the inner workings of your laptop, you may want to consider having the battery installed by a qualified technician.
