Question about Gateway Computers & Internet
I can't find any decent photos of your laptop online so I can't see what you're seeing, but it may be one of several things:
1) A PCMCIA or Express Card slot - this is a flat, long slot that usually has a dummy plastic "card" in it. You put wifi, network, sound, modem, video capture etc. cards in here
2) A smartcard reader - often located just under an express card slot - is a very thin slot where you put a business-card like ID card which can authenticate you, like a fingerprint. When you take it out your computer locks automatically. These are a defunct security standard usually on business laptops, not used much anymore but it's so small that a lot of laptops come with them anyway. In fact it's easy to not even realize it's there.
3) A proprietary expansion slot - HP in particular are known for putting special "expansion ports" just for HP devices. Perhaps this laptop is the same.
I'd bet it's probably #1.
