You put this in the PC Desktop category. If it's a desktop, then you just plug it in. If it's a laptop, then you'll need to turn the laptop over and remove the screws that correspond to the keyboard. Look for ones that are in relatively the same place as the four corners of the keyboard and such. Once removed, flip the laptop over and gently pull/unsnap the keyboard. Do this carefully as you will need to see where the keyboard plugs into the motherboard. Next, simply plug the new keyboard in and reverse the steps. It's really an easy process once you start doing it. Good luck!!

The keyboard should have a USB plug or a PS/2 plug that should plug right into the back of your computer

Gateway wireless keyboard detection


Insert the installation CD that came with your wireless keyboard set into your computer's CD-ROM drive.

Use the CD to install the drivers for the wireless peripherals.


Insert batteries into the keyboard .

Use a screwdriver to remove any screws that hold the battery bay covers closed.


Connect the wireless signal receiver to your computer.

Receivers for wireless keyboard and mouse sets usually use a USB connector.


Your computer will automatically detect the receiver.

Turn on your keyboard if the devices have power buttons.


Press the "Sync," "Connect" or "Pair" buttons on the keyboard , depending on your model.

If present, press the "Connect" button on the wireless signal receiver as well.

Your wireless keyboard set is now connected.


hope this helps

Replacing Power Button Circuit Card on Gateway W730 K8X Laptop


The instructions for replacing the keyboard include the cover you have to remove to replace the power button pcb. The power button pcb is attached to the bottom of the bezel that covers the hinges/button array. In a nutshell you just remove the 2 screws indicated in the instructions, pry the hinge covers up a bit, then gently pry the bezel up from the bottom. remove the ribbon cable, pull back the small piece of tape, remove the three small screws holding the pcb on, and remove it from the spring clips.

GAteway wireless keyboard


is your battery brand new? install a new one, if the problem exist, try to unplug and plug again the usb keyboard receiver, if the problem goes again, you need to contact your keyboard's manufacturer since it is a newly bought, it is still under a warranty. so you must contact them, to have your keyboard replace by a working one

Good luck, Godbless

Wireless keyboard


It could be a bad battery in the keyboard itself (I would suspect this first) or You may need to download and install the 'driver' from Gateway.

I received the replacement keyboard for my Gateway laptop computer without the "easy to read instructions". I was hoping that these instructions for removal of the defective keyboard and...


Hi
The best I could find was the product page for the keyboard. Otherwise you'll need to either contact the people who you bought it off or use a general guide for replacing keyboard such as this one. It does have laptop - specific instructions for some Gateway laptops - hopefully you'll hit lucky!

You could try searching specifically for "(your laptop make & model number) keyboard replacement guide" if the above link does not work. Google usually has the answers! Alternatively if you provide me with the model number I could have a look around for you.

Hope this helps and good luck!

Warning: receiver channel changed - wireless keyboard and mouse


I contacted Gaeway Support. They quickly answered and suggested that I change the batteries in my wireless mouse and/or keyboard. I did. It was the mouse. As soon as the new batteries were in, the popup went away and stayed away.
