Search google for a service manual, sounds like you have to take the whole thing apart and flip the motherboard over.

I'd love to help, unfortunately, I purchased a Gateway notebook a few years ago. There was no service manual. There were to disassembly instructions to be found anywhere. So unless they changed, you will have to figure it out yourself. Take your time and don't force anything. Make sure you get out all the screws. Double check. You don't want to snap anything.

I had to disassemble mine to replace the CCFL so I could sell the thing as a working laptop. It was a hellish experience because I could find instructions nowhere. Basically, if you have already googled or checked Gateway's website and have been unable to find anything, then there is nothing.
