I have all screws out of back of gateway ma3 all tabs are clear on top of key pad but wont come out

The only things you could hope to upgrade in a laptop that old is the RAM and the hard drive. if it's an x86 computer the most you get get is 4GBs of ram and maybe a 250GB IDE drive in that. Laptop's are not really meant for upgrading. It isn't cost effective to upgrade laptops anyways. Spend $300 on a new low end laptop and you will have something at least twice as powerful as this laptop you currently have.

Gateway ma3 keyboard problem

The problem seems to be that the pressure pad underneath the key is stuck on the "activated" position. Taking the keyboard out would not affect the position of the pressure pad. Also attaching a USB key board will not make any difference since the original keyboard is still electrically connected and has priority over any external plug n play devices. A new set of keyboard pressure pads should solve this. I suggest taking it to your local computer repair centre.
