    Seems like if I move the computer in a certain way, or if the heels of my hands (my wrist and palms) press on the keyboard a certain way that the volume is controlled, and decreases. the volume on top (glowing blue lights) visibly changes as well, the subtraction sign lighting up to show that the volume is decreasing.

Check if you have volume buttons on your laptop somewhere if you do check to make sure they are not sticking. If not you might have software on you computer that for some reason is reducing the volume

Power light blinking on nv53a gateway


Your Gateway laptop comes with a series of LED lights that alert you to the state of your computer. You'll notice there are blue, purple and red lights that either blink or display solidly. Each light, blinking or solid, has a different meaning. The blue blinking light on your laptop indicates that it is in Standby mode. Your laptop goes into Standby when you close its lid without shutting down the computer. To turn this light off, you'll need to take the computer out of Standby mode, and if you want to ensure that the blinking blue light does not return, shut down the computer after each use.

Open the lid of your Gateway laptop and press the power button. Once Windows loads, enter your password if required. The blue light will no longer be blinking because the computer is no longer in Standby mode. Shut the laptop off when you finish using it rather than simply closing the lid to stop the blue light from blinking again. Click "Start" from your Windows desktop and click "Shut down." Change your computer's power settings to keep if from going into Standby mode when you close the lid if you'd rather not shut down your computer every time you use it. Click "Start" and click "Control Panel." Click "System and Security" and then click "Power Options." Click "Choose what closing the lid does" from the list of options on the left side of the window. Select "Hibernate" from the drop-down lists under "On Battery" and "Plugged In." Click "Save Changes." Your laptop will now bypass Standby mode when you close the lid and it will enter Hibernate mode instead. Hope it helps.

In my gateway mx7120 the power button won't function. Can the computer be turned on any other way,?


Take the battery out and leave the machine connected to the AC power and try to turn it on. If it turns on then your battery is bad. There is a safety feature of LI-ion batteries, if the voltage drops too low, then the machine will not turn on to keep from over charging the battery and causing a fire. You may have to spring for a new battery in order to keep it portable.

Shortage?


There is a ribbon cable between the laptop & the screen. It sounds like you have a short in that cable. If you're not good with tedius electronic repairs, it would be best to have a shop repair it.
