Alerts you to any damage that might result from doing or not doing specific actions.

Caution

Gives precautionary measures to avoid possible hardware or software problems.

Important

Reminds you to do specific actions relevant to the accomplishment of procedures.

Note

Gives bits and pieces of additional information related to the current topic.

General Information

Before using this information and the product it supports, please read the following general information.

1This Service Guide provides you with all technical information relating to the BASIC CONFIGURATION decided for Gateway’s “global” product offering. To better fit local market requirements and enhance product competitiveness, your regional office MAY have decided to extend the functionality of a machine (e.g. add-on card, modem, or extra memory capability). These LOCALIZED FEATURES will NOT be covered in this generic service guide. In such cases, please contact your regional offices or the responsible personnel/channel to provide you with further technical details.

2Please note WHEN ORDERING FRU PARTS, that you should check the most up-to-date information available on your regional web or channel. If, for whatever reason, a part number change is made, it will not be noted in this printed Service Guide. For GATEWAY-AUTHORIZED SERVICE PROVIDERS, your Gateway office may have a DIFFERENT part number code to those given in the FRU list of this printed Service Guide. You MUST use the list provided by your regional Gateway office to order FRU parts for repair and service of customer machines.

As a phenomenon known to thin-film transistors (TFTs), liquid crystal displays (LCDs) commonly exhibit a small number of discoloration dots, as so-called "non-conforming pixels." This phenomenon is a limitation of TFT LCD technology, not a product defect, and as such is not covered by Gateway's warranty.
