    I looked at 9manuals, and they will sell me what I can download from Gateway for free, but it does not explain how to teardown to motherboard, only how to replace, keyboard, hard drive, DVD, and network module.

    Gary352, you mention the user manuals of the MX6440 can be downloaded on their site. I actually need to replace the keyboard, which is something you saw was explained in such manuals. I can't seem to find the manuals though. I did find them on 9manuals, but I would prefer to get them for free from Gateway.

The mother board can be removed but you have to remove the keyboard by poping it out and unsrewing some screws below the key board

Check your BIOS settings when the PC starts, this can be accomplished by pressing F2 or Delete (depending on your model) when in your Bios check the power settings for CPU options such as SMART CPU and other variations.

I need to replace the keyboard on an MX6440 laptop - how do I get the computer open? I dont' want to just start prying things. Is there a repair manual online?

There is no 100 percent true way of telling you online how to get this computer open I would advise if all the scews are out of the thing on the bottom then you need a plastic wedge to help the case open its latches.

Sometimes a little prying is in order but not with metal use a plastc wedge. When in doubt let a expert do it for you.

Power adapter loose - worth fixing?

FIrst of all, amyone charging $30 for a replacement jack is ripping you off. These parts are available for less than $2 each and are common parts. Unless the jack has been damaged, it shouldn't need to be replaced. I repair this type of problem all the time, and usually it takes longer to get to the jack than it does to repair it. A reasonable charge for this would be $80-$120 for labor (this process takes over an hour easy) and a few bucks for parts. Where are you located?


Gateway MX6440 will not power on

If you are not getting any power indication lights on the front of the laptop with the AC adapter plugged in, then you most likely have a faulty DC jack.  Luckily, that sort of issue can be fixed, and it is not TOO expensive.  Our company typically does DC jack repairs for about $100.

Gateway Mx6440 Sound Problems, installed Vista

Did you download and install this particular driver from Gateway:

This is the specific Vista driver for your computer. If you have been trying others, your hardware probably will not work. Hardware compatibility is an issue with upgrading to Vista. You need to make sure you are getting the right drivers from the device manufacturer, and sometimes you might find none available.
