Gateway FX6803-35 (PTGBD02004) PC Desktop Questions & Answers
I keep getting a message that the battery needs to be replaced. Where is it?
It is on the motherboard. Take the power cord off the unit and panel to access it. On the board is a small round battery which is about half an inch in diameter and silver (chrome plated) somewhere on the board. Usually a CR 2032. It is what powers the memory of the CPU. Cost is around $2.50

Downloads are difficult to perfirorm.
IE is corrupted- the download program from it is gone. The only way to fix that is to reinstall Windows. It's simpler just to use another browser - Opera has a fully operational download manager in it.

How do Imanually ejecting a disc from a gateway
There should be a small round hole on the door near the eject button.
Using a straightened heavy paper-clip, insert straight into the hole.
There is a lever inside that you will feel, press in until the door comes partly open.
Then you can pull the door to access the disk.

Cd driver not opening
Open a paper clip and see if you can find a tiny hole in the front of the cd drive. Push the sraightened out paper clip into the hole and the drive should open without power on the computer. The hole on my dvd plyer is just above the switch which opens and closes the dvd drive. If the paper clip is too big you may have to go to a pc shop and buy a pin which comes with most new dvd players. If the owner of the shop is a nice person they may give you a pin and explain more.
Power suppy connections to computer
What is the question? When hooking up a power supply, there are only 2 plugs to hook up and there are only 2 places on the motherboard where they fit.
