How to replace a video cable


In a Gateway M-7351u Notebook PC?

1) http://www.insidemylaptop.com/replace-broken-lcd-screen-gateway-m-series-laptop/

2) http://www.insidemylaptop.com/replace-keyboard-gateway-m-series-notebook/

Motherboard side of video cable, should be under the Switch Cover, (LED indicators, Power On button, speakers, etc), or under the Keyboard close to the Switch Cover.

Don't forget to remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery. (Use CARE. Wires going to Switch Cover. Do not cut them by accident, or pull on them when removing Switch Cover )

Hi, How do I remove the case from a Gateway EC1805u notebook? I need to replace the keyboard, as it got wet and now ~ 10 keys will not work. I have removed all screws from the bottom of the notebook...


HELLO,

PLEASE PUT ALL SCREWS BACK IN...YOU NEED TO WORK FROM THE OPEN COMPUTER ON TOP, NOT THE BOTTOM!

SLIDE YOUR FINGER ACROSS THE VERY BOTTOM OF YOUR SCREEN...THERE WILL BE A SMALL BUMP/MARKING STICKING OUT...

JUST UNDERNEATH THIS BUMP...ON YOUR KEYBOARD PANEL WILL BE A SMALL PUSH TAB..YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE SURE YOUR SCREEN IS LAID BACK...OUT OF THE WAY...SO NOT TO SCRATCH IT ETC,. ALSO TO HELP GET TO THE TAB.

CAREFULLY USE A SMALL TOOL/FLAT SCREWDRIVER ETC.,..TO PRESS THIS PUSH TAB...

LIFT UP THE SMALL PANEL THAT HAS...(THE POWER BUTTON & ADDITIONAL (4) BUTTONS..EMAIL, WEB,ETC,. )...ONCE YOU RELEASE THIS SMALL PANEL...(THERE MAY BE A COUPLE OF SCREWS THERE TO REMOVE)...TO LIFT THIS PANEL.

GENTLY LIFT UP THE KEYBOARD PANEL...YOU WILL SEE WHERE YOU NEED TO DISCONNECT THE KEYBOARD,..PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU MARK YOUR PLUG WIRES WITH TAPE AND WRITE DOWN WHERE TO RE-INSTALL THEM.

(NOTE)...THIS IS ALSO THE WAY TO CHECK YOUR FAN AND MAKE SURE IT IS CLEAN AND WORKING PROPERLY..

IF I CAN BE OF FURTHER ASSISTANCE, PLEASE DON'T HESITATE TO CONTACT ME!

KIND REGARDS,

How do I enable the wireless switch on a Gateway mx8711


HI there,

Most Gateway® notebooks have a designated multi-function button or function key to turn your wireless on and off. This information is located in your notebook's user guide.
The user guides for the Gateway® branded notebooks are installed on your hard drive. To access your user's guide, from the Start menu, point to All Programs, and then click Gateway Documentation. User guides are also located on the Gateway® Web site. To download or view a copy of the user's guide from Gateway.com, select your notebook type from the Notebook User Guides support page. Another source of reference for networking your computer is the Gateway Notebook Networking Guide. Quick reference:
  • Gateway® M675 - Multi-function button (last on right)
  • Gateway® 200ARC - Multi-function button (last on right)
  • Gateway® M505 - Multi-function button (first on top)
  • Gateway® M500 - Multi-function button (first on top)
  • The Gateway® M275 notebook uses the system keys FN+F7
  • Most other notebooks use FN+F2
Hope this helps you out.

I have a 7210 GX. Th eon/off button contains a small tab which actually activates the on/off function. This small tab broke off and I'm trying to find a replacement/solution Any sources?? Thanks...


If you still have the tab that activates the switch they can sometimes be glued back on. The keyboard cover includes the power button. You can find them on ebay for 1/3 of what the are from a parts depot.

Opening a Gateway Solo 2150 laptop


I found the answer on another wed site. I tried it on my Gateway Solo 1500 and it works! The extra screws are hidden on top. You carefully remove the small face plate around the power button. I used a very small screw drive to lift it off.

Opening Gateway Solo 1400
by Aelanna - 2/3/05 11:04 AM In reply to: Gateway SOLO 1400 by hunjibunji
I'm also an A+ certified tech, but I've done notebook service for a lot of years. I just finished opening up a Gateway Solo 1400 and it was NOT easy! There are no screws holding the keyboard on the bottom of the machine. You can get the case open about 95% and there will be one area stuck, in the back near where the screen cable goes into the unit. There is a hidden screw on the top of the case next to the hinge. To get to it, you have to remove the two screws that hold the plastic hinge cover and pry off the cover. I only managed to find it after removing the keyboard, the display, and the panel with the LEDs and power button. (The screws holding the keyboard are on the top of the machine, underneath the cover with the power button on it.)
