Having problems with your Gateway Solo 1450 Notebook ?

Bent pins on Gateway Solo 1450 pcmcia slot.

\015 Hi my friend has an older Gateway and has bent some pins on the pcmcia slot. She is having financial problems - bankruptcy and lost her home to foreclosure and so she cannot afford to buy a new computer. She had wired internet via cable until times got bad. Yesterday, I bought her a wireless pcmcia card so she could get on the internet at McDonalds and other free wifi spots. But the pins on the pcmcia slot are bent and I cannot insert the card. I am very good with replacing parts on desktops and laptops but can find no instructions anywhere on the web for replacing the pcmcia slot in this computer. Any help would be much appreciated. I will buy the part and fix it for her if it is possible. She is a very nice lady who has helped many people in her lifetime but has now fallen on hard times herself. Thanks for answering if you can help.\015

It would be difficult to remove and replace the PCMCIA slot on any laptop. Buy her a USB wireless adapter from Linksys or DLink. It would be easier and less expensive for you.
