Question about Gateway 7330GZ Notebook
How can I replace the keys since it's hard to open the laptop?
You will have to replace the entire keyboard. The problem is with the circuit board that is built into and controls the functioning of the keyboard, not the individual keys. To remove the keyboard, you need to remove the plastic strip with the buttons in it, at the top of the keyboard. This strip usually just snaps into place, but some have two screws on the bottom of the machine that hold it, so if it doesn't want to lift up and snap off easily, then remove any screws directly under the strip. Once you have the strip up and off, you will see the screws that hold the keyboard.

Tips for a great answer:
A hard disk failure can be catastrophic if it jeopardizes the data stored on your computer.
In addition to rendering a laptop inoperable, a failed hard disk can damage other files stored on the drive as well.
It is critical to determine whether an actual drive failure has taken place, and there are several steps to troubleshoot a drive before hard disk failure can be declared.
Unplug any devices such as printers, speakers, cameras and other external peripherals. Boot the laptop by pressing the power key.
If this does not result in a successful boot, try booting Windows in "Safe Mode."
Reboot the computer, and hold down the F8 key this will vary depending on your computer and operating system
From the menu choices, choose "Boot Windows in Safe Mode".
If the boot up progresses, then the computer is likely experiencing a software issue, not a hard drive failure.
Reset the hard drive.
This will involve turning off laptop (removing the battery is a good move, too) opening the laptop unit, and unplugging all connections and cables from the hard drive.
If possible, replace the hard drive with another drive.
This will help determine if the hard drive is causing the problem.
Plug all connections back in to the hard drive, and reboot the computer.
Repeat Step 2 if necessary.
If the computer does not reboot, the laptop is more than likely experiencing a hard drive failure and will probably have to be repaired by vendor.
hope this helps
