Question about Gateway Computers & Internet

1 Answer

We have a Gateway Computer that was purchased about 9 months ago. The letters on our new Keyboard are wearing off so much that the I is gone and others are showing great wear. We are retired so it is not do to overuse. Is there any soultion for us? Can Individual keys be replaced, and if so where do we get them. Best Buy referred us to Gateway. We have never had anything but a Gateway Computer, but this is the first time we have ever had this happen with a Keyboard. Please email us a solution to this problem. Thank you.

Key's can be individually purchased, but after replacing a couple of keys it can get expensive.
Your best option would just to buy a new keyboard directly from Gateway, or from a place like BestBuy.
Keyboards where keyboards are as cheap as $20.

The keyboard on my Toshiba laptop suddenly lost the letters T & E function. All the other keys are working. I bought the laptop from Radio Shack 9 months ago. Is there some way to solve the problem?


Nah - not much you can do. The keyboard's gone bad. Most new Toshiba laptops have a year's warranty, so you should call them and have them replace it for free.

Try using a different keyboard and see if the problem continues. If it does not, then your best bet is to purchase a new keyboard, unless your computer is still under manufacturer warranty.

Well if they would not replace your keyboard then I may suggest you buy a stencil lettering that you scratch. You can purchase this on school supply outlets. It has many sizes and fonts. After choosing the type of stencil, scratch it to your keyboard and top it with a clear nail polish gloss so that it would not fade whenever you're typing.

Logitech wireless keyboard letters wearing off, only 6 months old. Looks like they are a sticker, can you get new ones?


the printing is now done by Laser that is why I was told a huge problem of keyboard letters wearing away. I bought some at www.smartkeyboardsolutions and the printing is underneath. They still look like the day I put them on.

You could use something like white out to repaint the letters on the board and then invest in a plastic cover/protector for the board. With the protector in place it will prevent further letter wear. Hope this helps.

Sticky keys


Dear rwertheim


Try the following guide

http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2007/03/20/key-fell-off-keyboard/

There are no guides from Gateway for the keys available for the but this guide will be more than enough to help you through this one in order to remove them. Its should be completely the same principle.

Cleaning the keys should be done without alchohol based cleaners because the lettering might be erased. Use some soap and warm water instead and gently scrab with a soft brush the bottom of the keys.

Please remember to take out your laptop battery/ac adaptor in any case since you will be working at hardware level with your equipment.

Regards, and I wish you no more sticky keys!
