Jeff,

Where is the third screw in the battery compartment? I removed the cover and two screws at the bottom of the remote and cannot see another screw.

There is no third screw there. There are four more screws which are accessed by prying off the GREY panel on the front of the remote.

Six screws total. Take 'em all out and it comes apart.

The power button in my Gateway laptop MT6451 got pushed it can't be accessed from the top. How can it be accessed from the button?


Quite easily Sergio

The plastic Power On button you see, presses against a carbon button Power On switch, below it.

I suggest removing the Switch Cover, and then you can access the Power On switch's carbon button, and press it down to turn the laptop on.

You can also, then see about repairing the Power On button assembly, or replace the Switch Cover.

1) Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter {Charger}, and Battery.

2) Laptop closed, laid on it's top; Bottom side up.
Turn it so you are looking down in the Battery Compartment, where the Battery was......

Down in the Battery Compartment are 4 Philips head screws to remove. You need the smaller No.1 Philips screwdriver, or the equivalent Jewelers screwdriver.

Here is the Base Enclosure, (Bottom Cover), not installed on the laptop,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/39MA7BATA10-Gateway-MA3-MT6451-Bottom-Case-Cover-39MA7BATA10-Genuine-/321101430142?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4ac322fd7e

There are 4 views. The page automatically opens, with a Bottom view, and the Battery Compartment at the top.

SET, your mouse cursor in the middle of the photo. This allows the Zoom In feature.
Go to the top where the Battery Compartment is, and view the 4 holes going along the Top.

This shows you where the 4 screws to be removed are.

Same design, different Gateway notebook,

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/remove-keyboard-from-gateway-mt6704-model-ma7/

Go to the third photo down. Has two screws circled in Red.
I just want you to look at the Battery Compartment. (Not the red circled screws)

Look under the whitish - www.InsideMyLaptop.com -
You can see the first two screws pretty visibly. Almost make out the 3rd one, no to the 4th screw.

Once these 4 screws are removed, turn the laptop over.
Open the laptop.

Now you are going to remove the Switch Cover.

In the above link scroll down to the 5th photo, and 6th photo.

This video also shows you,

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KjOVOLOW1Hc

From 0:45 to 0:47
Please use care when removing, it is plastic.
The video has been sped up.

This is a look at the Switch Cover removed,

How to change the cooling fan in a toshiba laptop model p200d-139



Instructions

Shut down your Toshiba laptop, and then disconnect all cables. Close the LCD lid, and then place the laptop face down on a flat surface. Position the laptop with front edge facing you.

Locate the battery pack near the top section of the laptop's bottom casing. Press on the battery release button. Remove the battery from the laptop.

Locate the cooling fan compartment cover. Its location varies from laptop to laptop, but it will be the only hardware cover with a vent in it. Remove the Phillips-head screws securing the fan's cover in place. Remove the cover from the laptop.

Disconnect the fan's cable from its connector on the motherboard. Remove the Phillips-head screws securing the fan in place. Lift the old fan out of the fan compartment and set it aside. Removing the old fan will reveal the processor chip. Apply a thin coat of thermal grease to the processor's surface using a clean paper towel. This will prevent your new processor from frying once you power on your laptop.

Place the new cooling fan assembly inside the fan compartment. Align the screw holes on the new fan with the screw holes inside the compartment. Replace the four retaining Phillips-head screws, and then reconnect the fan's power cable to the motherboard. Replace the fan compartment's plastic cover, and its retaining Phillips-head screws.

Replace the battery pack and reconnect all power cables and external devices. Turn on your laptop to test the new cooling fan

Sony vaio pdc-8x2l disassembly


The cover above the keyboard might be secured by screws inside the battery compartment. Just remove all the screws from the bottom of the laptop, but check inside the battery compartment, hard drive compartment, dvd drive compartment, memory compartment and wifi compartment for screws once you remove them or remove the cover.

Where is the cmos battery located in the computer??????????


#1
Turn off the laptop and remove the AC adapter. Remove the battery from its compartment on the bottom of the computer. Turn the laptop over and remove the screws holding the DVD drive in place and pull out the DVD drive.
#2
Remove the remaining screws on the bottom of the computer. These screws secure the wireless card cover, the memory card cover and the modem card cover. Then remove all of the plastic covers. Remove the wireless card by sliding it gently out.
#3
Remove the corner screws on the bottom of the laptop securing the bottom housing. Remove the housing by pulling it away from the laptop. Remove any remaining, exposed screws on the bottom of the computer.
#4
Turn the laptop over and remove the thin plastic strip that runs along the border of the keyboard with your fingernails. If your fingernails aren't long enough, a plastic card will work as well.
#5
Remove the two screws on either side of the keyboard securing it to the computer. Remove the keyboard.
#6
Remove all of the exposed screws where the keyboard used to sit. These screws secure the top housing to the computer. Remove the housing, exposing the motherboard.
#7
Locate the CMOS battery. It is a small battery about the size and shape of a coin and should be easily visible on the board. Depending on the model of Toshiba you are working on, the CMOS battery will either be secured with a clip or connected to the board by two small cables. Either way, they are easily removable.
#8
Disconnect the battery by pulling gently away from the cables or by popping the clip out. Your CMOS battery can now be removed

How to replace latch


The latch is incorporated into the palm rest which you can buy on Ebay for around 25 bucks.

The simplist way to do this is to remove all the bottom case panels to make sure there are no hidden screw holes. Remove the connectors on the wireless card, remove the battery and the three black screws inside the battery compartment. Remove the screw and the dvd drive. Remove all the screws from the bottom case. Turn the laptop back over and remove the power button cover, start prying the cover up on the right side, it will come off as long as you removed the three screws from the battery compartment. Once the cover is off, press on the small indentions around the edge of the keyboard, this will release the keyboard. Release the keyboard cable clipand remove the keyboard. Unplug all the cables from the motherboard and unplug all the flat cables from the palmrest to the motherboard. There are several screws holding the palmrest to the bottom case assembly. Remove these screws and note their location. Once the screws have been removed, start working the palmrest free from the bottom case half, if all screws have been removed will pop apart, lift it from the back and tilt it toward the front and lift the palmrest away.
