Question about Gateway DX4200-09 PC Desktop

1 Answer

The mouse that came with it was not used until yesterday and it sometimes lights up but even when it does, it does not work the pointer.

My old mouse is Scotch-taped together and since I have the new/unused Gateway mouse, I plugged it in and started the computer. It did not light up - and when it does, it still does not move the Pointer. Help please.

Hello,

If the mouse pointer works with a different mouse, then the problem is with the mouse that you are using now. You will need to get a new one if that's the case.

Hi,

Yes your asking too much of it,

An old system cannot keep up with all the memory intensive programmes and the processor will not cycle the information fast enough for you

This is why it is slow
add more ram, bigger hard disk drive too will help
if you can
delete anything off it you can too
increase the page file size,
will help

Regards
Richard

You power supply is broken. It can happen at the drop of a hat. Plug in your PC model in google and follow it by the words power supply. You should be able to get one for $20 or less.

SOURCE: My gateway dx4300-03 starts up

By Cyclontech!

Hi, The solution to fix the problem is by changing your power supply. Just make sure that you replace it with a 500W or higher and not with the same 300W which does not have enough power for this system, plus it is defective. I have changed the power supply to 4 diferent gateway PCs same model dx4300. And all 4 are working perfect. And run a check disk on CMD to fix the disk errors that were created every time you unplugged it and turned it on again.

If you have a manual for the notebook, check to see if you can use the function key and the similarly coloured key on the keyboard which enables/disables the touch pad. Usually you can disable the mouse pointer touch pad with this FUNCTION key + MOUSE key when pressed together. Often these keys have the same colour (usually blue). The purpose is to disable the touch pad when you are using an external USB or wireless mouse, then you press the 2 keys again together to enable the touch pad once you have removed the USB/wireless mouse.

If that doesn't work, borrow a USB mouse and attach it to your notebook to use temporarily while you diagnose the problem.

Freezing or Jumping Mouse Pointer


This could happen if the PS/2 connector on the motherboard is defective, or if there is a failing component in the PS/2 circuitry on the motherboard.
Could also be due to loose solder points at the PS/2 connector.
This needs to be checked by a qualified technician.
