Question about Gateway M-6332 Notebook

1 Answer

Gateway M6332 touchpad button doesn't work.

I have a Gateway M6332 with the left touchpad button broken and the switch under it also non-functional. I need part numbers, or other models that used the same parts. A service manual would also be nice. The "component replacement manual" is useless for this, it covers only replacing the battery, memory and keyboard. Gateway's support site shunts over to Acer support, which has no information at all on Gateway products. Way to go Acer! Apparently they bought out Gateway and are giving owners of Gateway products the shaft, sharpened and sideways.

    I said the component replacement manual was USELESS for this and what does someone do? Posts a link to it and goes on about the battery. Someone else posts a link to something about a completely different model and another tells me to have someone else fix it. ALL USELESS REPLIES! I have found a video on putting one of *this exact model* back together from a disassembled state. The touchpad switches are located on the mainboard so I found a good board for $82. Next time folks READ what people write so you don't tell them to try exactly what they've said they already tried that did not work, or point them to documents or websites they said they already looked at, which did not contain information they need.

SOURCE: my gateway nv54 laptop battery

Unfortunately there isnt much you can do, the only real solution that has ever been known to work is to completely drain the battery (I mean keep trying to turn it on even after its died, many many times) and then put in on charge for 8hrs.
Other than that, regardless of what people say, there isnt much else you can do. And I wouldnt put too much faith in any tests these techs have run, its almost impossible to really see what state the battery cells are in.
For future reference, when you are using your laptop plugged into the mains, take the battery out, that wil help prolong its life, and never let it get too hot or charge it longer than it needs (can bend the cell walls)

Touchpad not in device manager


Hi There,
The touchpad will normally show up under input devices in device manager. If you don't see it listed, check to see if your touchpad has a manual on/off switch located on the laptop keyboard (sometimes under specialized function keys)
If a switch doesn't seem to be the issue, try reinstalling the drivers for the touchpad, which should be available on the toshiba website.

Gateway 6451 disable touchpad


Click Start/Control Panel andlook for the Mouse and open it to check the mouse properties. Make sureyou don't have the touchpad disabled.

Some models will allow you to toggle the touchpad on or off by clicking on thebutton that is located at the top of the touch pad in the middle.

Some models will allow you to toggle the touchpad by tapping twice in the upperleft hand corner of the touchpad.

Some models will require a keystroke to toggle the touchpad. Press andHold the ALT or FN function key located at the lower left portion of thekeyboard, then hit the key that toggles the touchpad. The correct key tohit will have the icon of a finger pointing at a square that represents thetouchpad.

Download and reinstall the touch pad drivers.Get online and got towww.google.com In the google search box type: "Dell Support"(without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Lookfor downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system whenrequested. Download and install the Touchpad drivers.

    My touchpad doesn't work on my aspire one D255 netbook. The wireless mouse works but the touchpad doesn't respond to any touch. How can I make the touch pad work? Is there a function?


    Hi!

    If the touchpad worked well before and suddenly doesn't work any more, it is most likely it was stopped by pressing the key combination FN F7. To be sure please press the same combination again and check if it works.

    If it still not work, please check if the touchpad drivers are installed on you netbook.
    To do so, please open device manager. (opening the device manager could be done in more different ways, e.g. click START button and, depending on your operating system enter devmgmt.msc in the Run box for windows XP or in the Search programs and files box in windows 7).
    Now, under mice and other pointing devices you should find your touchpad.
    If the touchpad is not listed in device manager, drivers for it have to be installed.
    Drivers for your netbook's hardware are on the acer support page.

    Hope it helped,

    Left button of the Asus Eee 900 is not working?


    I guess you mean the left touchpad button. With my 900 that happened after only 4months extensive use. Reasons could be dirt in the microswitch under the button or broken contact of switch on MB. To exclude software problem, switch buttons in touchpad driver panel and see if the right button function is not working when pushing the left button. If you don't want to open your eeepc to clean or fix, activate the tapping option in the touchpad options and asign a "2taps with one finger" to a left mouse click for replacement. I work with that for almost 2 yrs now without ever using the left button again. Should you just switch buttons, be prepared that the right button might leave you too in a while.

    Take care,
