1) FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

Relieve your body of Static electricity BEFORE reaching inside your computer, and BEFORE taking any new parts out of their anti-static bags, or cartons.

Computer on a table, computer Unplugged from power, computer case open;
TOUCH an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

IF you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again upon your return.

2) Open the computer case;
Click on User Guides in the Gateway link above.

In the list click on -
8513028 - Gateway Hardware Reference Guide

[ This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on the file name it may take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up ]

(Note* First page is Black, and blank. Second page is blank, and White)

Hover your mouse cursor on the bottom/middle of the page. The ghosted out navigation guide will appear. Click on the PDF icon all the way to the Right. (Show Adobe Reader Toolbar)

Use the Plus ( + ) icon at the top of the PDF file, to increase the view size.
Click on the Minus ( - ) icon to decrease the view size.

Use the Down Arrow at the top of the PDF file to go to Page 41.
(PDF reader page number. Actual manual page is 35)

Loosen the two Thumbscrews, pull back on the formed fingerpull, and remove the left Side Panel. (Pulls back so far, then tilts out to remove)

[I find it best to remove all cables beforehand, then put a soft cloth on the table, and lay the computer on it's side. Much easier to access hardware components on the motherboard ]

Going back to the main support page, click on Components.
In the list, and under the bold black subheading - Motherboards,
click on -
4006273R - MSI Nvidia MCP73PV Motherboard

The two long White slots shown at the bottom of the motherboard, are PCI expansion slots.

An Ethernet card can be plugged in here.
(PCI Ethernet Card example, {10/100/1000},

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=771339&CatId=1175

Notice above the two long white PCI slots, that there is a longer Black expansion slot.
This is a PCI-Express x16 slot, and is ONLY used for a graphics card.

The small White slot above it is a PCI-Express x1 slot.
It can also be used for an Ethernet Card.
A PCI-Express x1 Ethernet Card,

A closer look at a;
1) PCI expansion slot,

2) PCI-Express x1 expansion slot,

http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/MSI/4006273R/4006273Rmvr18.shtml

[ Just for reference a PCI-Express x16 expansion slot,

http://support.gateway.com/s/MOTHERBD/MSI/4006273R/4006273Rmvr19.shtml

When removing a PCI-Express graphics card, the tab lock on the end is gently depressed ]

Adding or replacing an expansion card, starts at the bottom of Page 54. (PDF file page. Actual manual page is 48)

The metal slot covers at the back of the computer case metal frame, are Expansion Slot Covers.
Remove the one covering the slot you need, by removing it's Philips head screw.

Note that the slots in the metal frame for the expansion cards, does not line up with the expansion slots on the motherboard. They are one over.

Insert the Ethernet Card straight down in the expansion slot, lining up the Locating Notches at the bottom of the Ethernet Card, with the Locating Lugs down in the bottom of the expansion slot.

You also have to slide the 'tang' at the bottom of the Ethernet Card's metal bracket, down into a space in-between the outside metal framework of the computer case.
Plus line up the bracket's locating hole, (half-moon?), with a short dowel in the metal framework.

All of the above will become apparent once you start to install the Ethernet Card.

One last procedure is to Physically push down on each Ram Memory module ('Stick'), and also make sure the Locks at each end, are up, and in place.

Ram Memory gets bumped real easy. Better to check before going on. (Visual inspection will Not do. You have to physically check)

Card plugged in, and fastened down, close the computer case.
Reattach all cables if you disconnected them.
Plug the computer back into power.

Plug the Ethernet cable into the Ethernet Card.
WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Where is the headphone jack for the gateway EV730

You have to connect your headphones at the line out of the audio card at your desktop. It's the green jack with 3.5mm diameter at the back of your case. If the place that you have the desktop is not conventional for plug and unplug the headphones, I suggest you using an extender like this one. In case you use a speaker set there must be a headphones output either on one of the speakers or at the control unit.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

I have lines that appear on the monitor that started as a speck, then a line and now it appears extending from the bottom of the screen to the top. What is the cause of this and how can it be corrected?

Well, I have a 24 in Gateway. I unplugged everything from the screen, held the power button for 30 seconds, and plug everything back in. It worked again, apparently the problem was caused by a build up of static electricity and pushing the power button cleared out the static. Hope this helps.

Lines on screen

This happened to me once too. It is something with the monitor, which needs to be cleaned inside, that is all. Just take it to a mechanical store and they will fix it

CRT EV730 Monitor Just went out won't power won't do any thing

Check the color of the pluggie that goes into the back of your monitor, it is most likely either blue or white. Find a friend who has the same color plug and borrow their monitor for a few minutes. If theirs works; your monitor has **** out. If theirs does not work then your video card (on-board or add-on card) has **** out and you'll have to have a new card added to your system.

Static on Screen

Is this an LCD type of monitor or CRT? either case, there's a problem with the horizontal IC. My best solution for this case is to have the unit serviced by an authorized personnel as meddling with the internal circuits of the monitor is dangerous.. Have them estimate the price for repair, if it costs too much... better buy a new one.


For CRT type of monitors: try degaussing, this feature can be found on the OSD (On Screen Display). This can be accessed by pressing Menu on the monitor buttons.

Hope this helps!

A big white vertical static band appears as soon a i turn on the power

Some of the transistors or the connection to the panel inside the monitor are damaged. There is no absolute fix for this problem.

You can try pushing on the bezel (NOT ON THE SCREEN) of the monitor at the edge of the screen directly at the lines and you may be able to push the connection back together well enough that the line goes away, but usually in desktop monitors the bezel is too rigid to allow you to put any pressure on the connections at the back of the LCD panel.
