    Got the same problem

  • Anonymous Jan 22, 2009

    from 1.5 years of heavy use, the hinge is floppy in the close/open axis. rotationally, it's still stable. Took most of the screws from the back, but since it's my daily notebook, I didn't want to delve deeper.

Gateway tablet cx200X, tablet features won't work/ pen etc


All, There is DEFINITELY A PEN IN THE CX2620 stylii. I just replaced mine with a AAAA battery. The old one (which is a AAAA size, you can find these inside 9-volt batteries) had acid buildup on its positive end and that is why the pen went inactive. There is a lot of debate over this pen problem and I guarantee 90% of the time it's related to the battery. I can do a clean replace on anybody's CX2620 pen/stylii with a fresh battery for $10. If interested email me at [email]kevinteman@hotmail.com[/email] . You pay for shipping, your total about $17 or so. I have never done this before but I just replaced mine flawlessly so I can do others. I know there are a lot of dead stylii out there and people don't know what to do, took me a while to figure it out.
Thanks, Kevin Teman [email]kevinteman@hotmail.com[/email]

Gateway CX2620 Swivel Screen Laptop


This is the worst solution I've ever heard. This guy is trying to steer you wrong I'm pretty sure. There is zero point in removing all the screws from under the batter/ zero point to removing the area around the power button. Absolute BS. The only part to remove is the part just above the top of the keyboard (silver strip with some black). Then by removing that you can pry the swivel black plastic cover off. Whatever you do.. do not follow Scott's writeup here. I'm telling you. It's sad it's stayed up so long.. so had to warn.

Gateway Table PC Cx2620 Screen Wobble


Unplug and remove the battery pack for safety. DOn't want any shorts to happen. With the laptop open, gently pry with a very small blade the plastic cover at the front of the swivel and remove. It is in two pieces...front and back. It is OK to leave the rear half in place. Once removed you must close the laptop again. You will now have access to the screws on the hinges. Use a small Robertson screwdriver to tighten the screws. Snap the cover back in place....Voila!. IF the screws are broken (like mine were) remove all the good screws, gently lift and move the screen slightly forward, remove the broken screws with some needle nose pliers. Reassemble with new screws. I found some screws at the local computer geek shop in his selection of random screws. THey are quite tiny. CHeck Future Shop if they are in your area as they deal and repair Gateway so you may have a better chance of finding some screws that work. Good Luck.

Gateway tablet screen does not respond to pen.


I have a CX2620, got it in May 2006. Got my first pen replaced not long after that, actually within a month or two (wouldn't calibrate). Now the second one doesn't work at all, I can't tell if it's the pen or the tablet itself, except that the mouse will draw in the tablet spaces. I kept the old one as a spare, but neither click, draw, nada.
