    I think I need to replace the power switch. I dropped the laptop on the switch and the silver plastic barrel shapped casing that surrounds the switch is cracked.

Hi Leslie,

You can try this first: http://en.kioskea.net/faq/1902-disable-enable-the-touchpad If still can't, check whether your hardware is detected and installed from Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager and look for the touchpad device status. If everything is fine, it might be an hardware issue.

SOURCE: i need instructions to replace a keyboard for a

Hey, for that i guess you must have already bought new keyboard and must have Philip screwdriver handly

remove the power source battery and ac adapter then remove the hinge cover from the back of the laptop, remove the top from pate from the top of the keyboard and unscrew the keyboard(there would be two screws on top let and right)
Take out the old keyboard and replace it with the new keyboard and screw it up and put in the plate and hinge cover

Also i would suggest you to watch the following video, though it is for Dell however it would be really hepful for you to perform the action with your Gateway Laptop

No driver for wireless on my gateway loptop model NV79


Below are links to three versions of the driver for the NV79's wireless LAN. Which is the correct one will depend on the manufacturer of your notebook's on-board wireless card. For simplicity sake, I recommend just downloading and installing all three; your computer will be able to determine which is the correct one.

Here are the links:
Intel: Download
Atheros: Download
Realtek: Download

Each of these links was obtained from Gateway's official driver download web site for the NV79 Series notebook computer (which you can access here).

If you found this solution helpful, please leave a positive rating!

1. Take the battery out of the laptop & try to turn on the laptop using power adapter only. If the computer turns on, then the battery is defective & needs to be replaced.
2. Make sure the power adapter is not defective. Test the output voltage of the power adapter using a voltmeter. Compare the voltmeter reading to the nominal value written on the adapter or the laptop.
3. Make sure the DC jack is not loose or broken. A loose DC jack will need to be re-soldered. A broken one will need to be replaced.
4. If you have another processor which is compatible with your laptop's model, try swapping processors & test to see if the laptop will work.
5. The power button could be bad
6. The motherboard could be defective & needs to be replaced.
