You may be able to get from Gateway. From a quick search I just did, it looks like Mundo Corp.com, has one. $49 dollars Here is the link,

Now I don't have a Gateway Service Manual in front of me, for the Gateway ML6732 laptop. I don't believe it's available online. One, has to be an authorized repair shop, to have access to this information.

However, I wish you to know that I am a computer repair tech, and repair laptops all the time.
Keyboard replacement is one of the easier things to do, concerning repairing a laptop.
It is especially easy now for you, as you don't have to remove the old one.

The laptop keyboard will just come by itself, I believe. There are one, or two screws, that hold it in. However, the keyboard has tangs on the outside edges of it. The keyboard 'body' is made of plastic.

These tangs, are just small protrusions, that stick out from the rectangular body of the keyboard itself. The tangs also hold the keyboard in place. Once you sit the keyboard in place, you just push down on the edges, and the tangs snap in. Pop, pop, pop, and the tangs are snapped in.

Before you are ready to install the keyboard, you may have to partially remove a small thin plastic strip. This strip is located above where the keyboard goes, and under the area of the LCD screen.
Viewing it, you should see LED lights in it. There may be speakers in this strip also. The plastic strip goes almost all the way across the front of the laptop.
I know it's starting to sound complicated, but it isn't.

This plastic strip may also have hinge covers, incorporated on the ends of it. They cover the hinges for the LCD screen.
The plastic strip has tangs on it's edges also. To remove it, you take a small flat tip screwdriver,(Like a flat tip jewelers screwdriver), insert it under one of the edges, where it meets the laptop body, and gently pry up.
I say 'Gently', but sometimes it takes a little force. If you can't get the screwdriver down in there, move over. You may be at an area where on of the tangs are.
The strip will come up with a POP! You'll think you broke it! In actuality, you could drive a truck over that plastic strip, and not damage it. (Okay! That's an exaggeration, but you catch my drift)

Watch as you go along. If you have LED lamps in this strip, and/or speaker wires, you don't want to damage the wires.
You are just seeing if you can pop it up, so that you can set it towards the LCD screen. Move it back far enough to get the keyboard in. Should you have to disconnect the wires to move this strip back far enough, you will see real small White connectors. Looks like a small rectangular block. This is a Male/Female connector. Just take your fingernails, and pry these apart.
There may be two wire cables. These cables have different size connectors, so there will be no confusion when reattaching them together.

The laptop keyboard goes in at a 45 degree angle. Bottom towards you, top away from you. You set it down in the laptop body, align the tabs, (tangs), and ease it down. Once you are within about three inches, you connect the one, or two wire cable connectors, from the laptop to the keyboard. Move the cables to a position where they won't be pinched, and go ahead and push the keyboard down into position. Go along the edges of the keyboard, and push down. You are snapping the tangs into position. Snap, snap, snap.

Attach the cables for the plastic strip, if you had to remove them. Watch the cable, (Wire) placement as you did for the keyboard. Snap the plastic strip back into place.

You're done!
