    I've got a gateway solo which has a broken cable between the computer
    and the power button/LED/etc. panel. It's a 20 conductor cable
    measuring about 10mm across (bloody small). The cable is manufactored
    by a mob called sumitomo - I've tried everywhere looking for someone
    who can supply me with one of these cables, but nobody seems to want
    to know me if I'm only buying 1. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    You can try Gateway Technical Support, but I doubt that they'll help you.
    You can also have a look at Email them
    and you might be more lucky.

    Friendly, Kostas.

  3. I repaired one once and it even worked when I got done! Seriously, with a
    little time and patience, you could probably fix it. The one I had was
    broken across 16 of the wires, so I dug a piece of ribbon cable out of the
    junk(surplus) drawer and soldered it in. To assist in keeping everything
    apart, I staggered all the joints.
