Question about Gateway MX6920 Notebook

1 Answer

Autoscroll When I am viewing a web page, well any window with a scroll bar really, and I use the scroll bar on the screen to scroll up to the top, then move my mouse to the middle of the page the scroll bar moves to the bottom. I have contacted gateway tech support and they had me download a driver that made my mouse pad not work at all, which was very frustrating considering my mouse it like my hand and without it I am nothing.

    I tried messing with the mouse settings and they didn't affect the scrolling thing. I also had to do a system restore when my mouse quit working. Thanks though!

Try simply using a system restore to before the problem started acting up. Also, you can try going into the mouse properties (Start Menu, Control Panel for Xp) and look for scrollsettings there, which may allow you to turn off certain mouse features (aka. if gestures are enabled it might be conflicting with scrolling).
Hope this helps.

How do I enable my scroll bar on the keypad??


I trust that you understand that scroll bars are only visible if more than 1 page is to be displayed. If you have magnified a particular page, the scroll bar may be outside the view of the screen - on the right side, Scroll to the left until you see the right border.
Perhaps you are referring to the touchpad.
The scroll feature on the touch pad is not visible. You enable the touchpad by tapping twice on the upper left corner of the touchpad. A lite will appear in that corner when the touchpad is ON.
Then the scrolling feature is enabled on the right side of the touchpad. Simply run your finger up and down the right side of the touchpad. For more information, refer to the User Guide here:

I can't open the website


cant open certain web pages
When browsing the web, there are some instances where you encounter pages that cannot be loaded.
There are several reasons why, ranging from an error on the website itself to the settings on your own computer.
Page Cannot be Found A "Page cannot be found error" may occur when certain Web pages are no longer online.
This can be due to the deletion of the page, or if the page was relocated to a different section without having its links updated.
Firewall Issues
There are some pages that cannot be displayed on your computer simply because they are being blocked by the firewall software installed on your computer.
To remedy the issue, change your firewall settings to allow access to these pages.
Virus or Malware
If you have an anti-virus installed, this will prevent you from accessing pages that may contain possible threats to your computer.
Websites that contain viruses or malware, or so-called "Attack sites" will be blocked from being loaded on your computer.
Connection Timed Out
When you get this error message, it means your internet connection has timed out, which will cause your page not to load.
You can contact your internet service provider to resolve this issue.
Clean Up Cookies on a Computer
Clearing your computer's cookies in Microsoft Internet Explorer is easy.
Clearing your permanently filed cookies will make your computer run a little bit faster, and eliminate the link between you and the websites you frequent.
Cookies are small files that websites store on your computer to remember your account information, login, password and who you are.
If you want to eliminate another party tracking your preferences, read on to learn how to clean up cookies on a computer.

Turn on your computer and allow it to boot up.
Open a Microsoft Internet Explorer web browser.
It doesn't matter what web page first loads.
Locate the "Tools" tab or icon on the top right hand corner of your screen.
Click on the tab or icon, so a drop-down menu appears.
Browse the list and find "Internet Options."
Use your mouse to left click on "Internet Options."

Notice a new box open on your screen.
The bar across the top of this new box should say "Internet Options."
Below this bar will be several tabs.
Use your mouse to left click on the "General" tab.
Scan the box and locate the section titled "Browsing History."
Read the description under browsing history to be sure it includes the option to delete temporary files, browsing history, cookies, saved passwords and web form information.
Under the description, you will see two boxes, "Delete" and "Settings."
Click on the "Delete" button.
A new bow will appear on your screen.
The bar across the top of the box will be labeled "Delete Browsing History."
Notice the options in this box include the ability to delete temporary Internet files, cookies, history, form data and passwords.
Select the button that says "Delete Cookies" if you wish to only delete the cookies data files.
If you would like to get rid of the history list of websites you have visited, all your logins, passwords and form data, select the "Delete All" button at the bottom of the box.
Selecting either "Delete Cookies" or "Delete All" will make another box appear on your screen. You will see a confirmation message asking if you're sure you'd like to complete this action. Select "Yes" or "No."
Selecting "Yes" will allow your computer to delete the cookies.
Deleting these temporary internet files only takes a minute or two.
If you haven't deleted the cookies in awhile a task bar may appear to show you're the progress of the delete.
When the computer is finished, simply close out all the extra boxes that popped up.

You may choose to disable these web content filters, if you already have security software equipped to protect you from Phising sites.
Start the Internet Explorer browser.
Click on "Tools" and select "Internet Options". The "Internet Options" window will appear.
Select the "Security" tab and click on "Custom Level". The "Security Settings" window will appear.
Scroll through the settings and locate the "SmartScreen Filter".
Click on the option for "Disable" to turn off the web content filters in Internet Explorer.
Click "OK" to close the "Security Settings" window and save the settings.
Click "OK" to close the "Internet Options" window.
Mozilla Firefox

Click on "Tools" and select "Options". The "Options" window will appear.
Select the "Security" tab and remove the check-marks next to "Block reported attack sites" and "Block reported web forgeries".
Click "OK" to close the "Options" window and save the settings.

This is most like a problem with your graphics chip. You will most likely need to have it serviced. The lock button will "lock" your screen bringing you back to the Windows login screen.

    My screen is too zoomed in when I try to view


    You can try scrolling down the mouse wheel while holding the Ctrl key on your keyboard.

    If you want to decrease the text size on a web page you can go to: View > and reduce the text size in Internet explorer (In firefox and other browsers you can go to View and use the Zoom option)

    Please let me know if this helps you.

    My taskbar does not appear when I am viewing web pages


    It sounds like you have your task bar set to auto hide. I'm not too familiar with this brand of laptop but if you are using windows you should be able to follow these instructions to fix this. If you know how to get to the control panel (start menu) and click on appearance and themes there should be a task bar and start menu icon there. Click on that icon and select how you want your task bar to be displayed.
