You can purchase replacement hinges and hinge covers here: http://www.mundocorp.com/m275.html They may be a bit of work to replace. But short of replacing the hinge assembly, it doesn't sound like that is going to move.

Gateway M275 display scambles


I suspect it may be a problem with the video cable coming from the convertible tablet, up through the hinged support for the LCD screen, AND/OR the screen Inverter.

I would like you to connect a VGA monitor, to the VGA port on the back of the convertible tablet. The VGA monitor will now be an External Monitor.

[ Looking at the rear of the convertible tablet, start at the Left side.
Vent, USB port, Monitor port. The Monitor port is the VGA port ]

The VGA monitor can be a CRT type, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor with a VGA cable.

Notebook OFF, monitor OFF, connect the VGA monitor to the M275's VGA connector. (Port)
Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type, allow it to warm up.

Turn the notebook on.
By the factory default settings, whatever is shown on the convertible tablet's internal monitor, should now be shown on the external monitor.
(VGA monitor)

If not, press, and hold down on the Fn key (On the bottom row of the Keyboard, all the way to the Left), and tap once on the F3 key.
(Top row of Function keys. The F3 key is the Display Toggle-Over Key )

No graphics shown on the external monitor? Hold down on the Fn key again, and tap the F3 key again.
There are at least three options available;

1) Convertible tablet's internal monitor - ONLY
2) Convertible tablet, AND external monitor
3) External monitor - ONLY

If graphics are fine on the external monitor, you have a problem with the video cable, and/or the screen Inverter. At this time we will bypass the LCD screen, and come back to it.

At the bottom/middle of the tablet's LCD screen, is the Hinge. The Hinge Cover is 'T shaped', and has one single Philips screw holding it on.
If you remove the screw, and the Hinge Cover, you will see two wire harnesses.
One Black, the other White.

See that these two cables are plugged in tightly to the connector.

After checking this step come back in a Comment, and state your findings.

Regards,
joecoolvette

Gateway TabletM280e screen broken. What is needed to replace and how to replace it.


Assuming the screen is physically cracked, you need to obtain a new screen, remove the screen bezel by popping off the rubber caps and undoing the screws under them. The screen is fixed into position by two rails with small screws holding it into place. Remove these and the screen will be freed.
Disconnect the VGA cable and the smaller two wire plug that connects the inverter to the screen, replace the new screen and re assemble

Standard spec doesn't show bluetoooth but if you have a bluetooth dongle yes it is possible but the Windows standard bluetooth driver doesn't do it. There is a better bluetooth driver available on the Toshiba website which works with many hardware devices.

Dismantelling Averatec 3500 series tablet PC


I have this same laptop. It is pretty simple to tear apart. Is there any specific areas you wish to access or did you want to just take it completely apart? If you are going ofr the keyboard ribbon or the touchpad ribbon, just undo the two screws out that are located behind the pivot point of the screen, then open the laptop and remove the small plate. This reveals access to two more screws (2 silver, 2 black). Remove the silver ones not the black ones. The black screws remove the lower shell assembly. Once the silver screws are removed the accessory bezel can be removed. ( the one with the power button and lights)

There are yet two more screws that lock down the keyboard. Remove them and pivot the keyboard toward the touchpad. You can now safely remove the keyboard.

Will not start up after system recovery done with disks.


If you have a Windows XP or Windows Vista CD (or if you can borrow one), insert it into the CD Drive and restart the system. Boot from the CD, and choose the "R" for Repair console.

Log onto the Windows installation you want to repair.

At the prompt, type FIXMBR and answer yes.

Type exit.
