It may just be dirty. Get a spray can of electrical cleaner. With the unit turned off, spray the keyboard. Try to spray some under the keys. Let it dry out for an hour and power up. The cleaner is denatured alcohol so it evaporates quick. This is a good thing to do as routine maintenance also.

Gateway keyboard shortcut keys not working


You have two options to fix them res problem:

1. Do a system restore by clicking on start > programs > system tools > system restore. Select the date when everything was working fine and finish the restoration process. Let it restart and check if everything's working fine.

2. Update the driver of your computer. The possible problem of your computer are the outdated drivers. Doing updates manually is such a headache specially if you are not that computer savvy. If you want to do it automatically, then you can install RadarSync in your computer.

I hope this helps!

Cannot enter bios in the standard way with F2. I believe IDE controller is set to disable


Turn on your computer. If your computer is already on, then reboot it.

You need to see the initial display screen to get into the BIOS.


Press the F1 key immediately in one second intervals when you see the initial screen displaying the BIOS provider information.

The majority of Gateway computers use the F1 key.

If, for some reason this does not work, then use the F2.

All of Gateway's desktops use the F1 or F2 keys.


hope this helps

How to system unlock a gateway desktop computer



Press the "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete" keys on your keyboard simultaneously to unlock your Gateway computer.

Type the last logged-on user's login information and click "OK" if you see a locked computer message along with "Only domain/username or an administrator can unlock this computer."


Press the "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete" keys once again when you see the Unlock Computer window disappear. Log on as usual.

My gateway notebook is locked n I can't remember my user password ..help very frustrated ...I tried ctrl alt del twice to make the admin acct pop up but nothing


Try booting in safe mode.

Restart your computer.

As the computer restarts, begin pressing the F8 key after the Gateway BIOS logo appears until the Windows Advanced Options Menu screen appears.

On the Windows Advanced Options Menu screen, use the arrow keys to select Safe Mode, and then press the ENTER key.

After logging on to Windows XP Safe mode, in the Desktop dialog box, click Yes.

Good luck, post back if this helps.

Gateway USB ports stopped working


So maybe you need to install the drivers for the USB device you are trying to connect. Also, with the computer off, try cleaning all USB ports and plugs. You can buy electrical cleaner in a spray can at Radio Shack. Let it dry thoroughly before powering up. But to me it sounds like a driver problem. Unless maybe your USB BUS is going bad.
