Hi, First things first, you will want to purchase a replacement keyboard. One such item I have found is located here: http://www.laptoprepairparts.com/html/details.asp?ref=1236&category=keyboards
Secondly, or if you already have a replacement keyboard, use the following video guide to help you remove and replace the keyboard. The installation is not identical to your model, but very similar, as Gateway uses the same screw locations for parts.

Keyboard can be purchased from here
You should be able to replace the keyboard with minimal dis-assembly. I have not worked on this model but .... in general, you will need to remove a number of screws from the bottom of the laptop. Most likely will need to pop off the cover just above the keyboard. This cover is normally held on by some screws on the bottom of the computer. Once you are sure you have all the screws out, the cover will snap off. There is a fine line between how much pressure is required to remove the cover versus amount of pressure required to break the cover. There are tools you can purchase online to help remove these snap on covers. Once this cover is off, the keyboard should be loose. If it is not, check for more screws..... There should only be 1 cable. Be very careful with the connector. On some models the cable pulls out, on some a lock slides in the same direction of the cable and on other models the locks pulls up. No way to know which type is on your computer except for physical inspection.

Best of luck, Jim

I bought Logitech key 6 month back accidentally i spill the water on the keyboard after i removed battery and clean well and reassemble but some key did not work please give me solution.


Unfortunately you'll need to replace the keyboard, unless you know electronics and how to fix it. There are contacts inside the keyboard that connect the keys to the computer. It's likely these were damaged for some of the keys.

I did the same thing to a keyboard myself and had the same problem. When I opened the keyboard up, there were fried contacts. There is a way to fix this, but it requires special conductive paint and of course opening the keyboard.

Replacing zd8000 keyboard


No, its easy to do it yourself. You should not have too much of an issue. I would stick to a factory keyboard to avoid any incompatibility issues.

Cloud storage and file storage - DataAlign In vanilla terms, a backup or the process of backing up, refers to the copying and archiving of computer data so it may be used to restore the original after a data loss event. Backups have two distinct purposes. The primary purpose is to recover data after its loss, be it by data deletion or corruption. The simplest definition of a computer backup is an exact copy. In the case of computer files, we are referring to copies of the original files that you have on your laptop, desktop, or external drive. Creating a backup of original content means having that data saved in two places, but it's also important to make sure that those two places aren't on the same type of device. For example, if you have 3 copies of a working document on your computer, if your computer crashes, you will still lose all three. This makes the backup method and medium, an important thing to consider for your backup strategy. With the kind of Online Cloud Backup technology being used these days, it is extremely important to back up your files. Ideally, we store data files, movies, music, photos and our official documents on the computer. With the ever-changing technology, desktops and laptops have reduced in cost, and the quantum of storage inside them has surged considerably over the last few years. Unfortunately, storing all your data in only one place is risky. Accidental deletion, theft, computer loss, natural disaster is just some of the reasons that could cost you heavily as you stand out the chance to lose the data you've spent so long generating and collecting. Having an excellent backup strategy Computer Data Backup is the only way to battle the unexpected loss of data. There is more than one way to back up your computers, and using multiple forms of backup will minimize the risk of losing your valuable files. This is where, the PC Backup solution from DataAlign stands out of the rest and gives a one stop solution for Business Server Data Backup up your computer's data on the secure cloud servers. Our innovative platform has been designed while keeping you in mind. To provide optimal user experience we focus on simplicity and this in turn ensures that you will be able to backup and access large data quickly and smoothly.
