I too purchased a Gateway ZX4250 and a 4 GB RAM upgrade kit. It took me awhile to figure out how to open the case. Here is what I found.
1) Remove the two rubber pads at the bottom of the case (don't worry they pop right back on). 2) Open the small back cover. 3) Remove the one screw. *****CAREFUL**** 4) This part is a little difficult but just be careful not to use too much force. Take two small flat head screwdrivers and slowly separate the plastic silver front panel from the plastic black back panel. Start at the bottom where the two rubber pads were removed. Work your way around the case, you can see how the clips are connecting the two panels as you work your way around the all-in-one. It shouldn't be too hard just be careful on how much force you use. 5) Once the panels are separated you can now access the hard drive, optical drive and some other components. 6) Disconnect the Hard drive sata cable from the motherboard. 7) Disconnect the other cable right next to the sata cable on the motherboard (I'm not sure as to the purpose of this cable. 8) Remove the screws from the metal plate covering the motherboard. Take careful note that a grounding cable is connected to one screw. 9) Install your RAM. 10) Reverse the procedure to put everything back together.
This whole procedure to upgrade my RAM took about 15 minutes. I hope this helps some of you that are trying to upgrade your RAM. If you have any questions PM me.
Turn the unit on its back, so that when it is closed the LCD backcover is facing on the table. You'll see a smaller coverer that can be removed from the actual bottom cover. Make sure you remove the battery first then all necessary screws. Lift up the cover gently, then blow out using compressed air can. Reinstall cover and tighten with screws.
Also make sure you apply new heat sink paste to the CPU. Also make sure that the CPU Heat sink fan actually turns and is not clogged up or has bearings broken.
The older laptops like this one are easier to clean than the 6952 for example.
But first you can press gently at the back of the laptop on various spots and see if the lines go away or if they get worse. Hold the LCD with both hands on both sides, then gently move it back/forth in opposite motions and see if the lines get worse or if they go away.
If the unit is not under warranty anymore you could open the LCD and
reseat the LCD cable. To do this remove the rubber buttons that are located on the front LCD cover - there should be 4 or 6 or 8. Then you should see the screws. Unscrew them all. Now you can remove the front cover by taking it off gently.
Depending on the model, you need to remove the screw that hold the LCD to the backcover so you can seperate the LCD from the backcover to reseat the LCD cable on the LCD.
After reseating the cable (removing it from the LCD cable slot and connecting it again) you can close the unit.Reseat the LCD cable on the mainboard as well and see if that helps.
Furthermore if all this reseating pulling and pressing didn't help, test the unit by connecting a external monitor or LCD. If it gives a clear good picture on your external, then you know your LCD might be faulty.

There is different proccedure for different watch to take out the back. Following are some of the proccedure to open the backcover of the watches:-
1. Some plastic watch have four screw in the back, you just have to unscrew the screws and take out the back.
2. Some of the watch have press back technology, which enables the watch to be water resistant and thus, the backcover of these watches are pressed very tight. You just need a back opener, and at the back if this back opener has to placed between the case and backcover and has to be tilted and backcover can be opened.
(Backopener is a tool which is like thick & hard blade with sharp edges like knife but not very sharp; these edges can get easily between the gap of backcover and case. - this tool can be obtained from any watch tools store easily)
Firstly you have to take off two screws from the backside. Secondly: there are two holes on the upper side, you must press in with small screw driver(one by one ) and pull backcover back. I hope this will help you.
