Question about Gateway T-1625 Notebook

1 Answer

Curser moves my page left to right

I have a gateway T 1625 with Vista Home premium 32.
A small slider device pops up and sticks to tip of my curser (horizontal rectangle about the size of a large grain of rice with little slider bar inside )and makes my page move left to right. It is not limited to any program. It does it in documents, browsers, paint shop pro when I am creating, picture viewers when image is larger than screen. Im sure it is some kind of application from either microsoft, gateway, or my mouse settings from Synaptics. I want it to go away!!!! Help me get rid of it, turn it off, uninstall it, whatever!!!

This sounds like the functionality of the mouse pad, in the better mouse pad drivers, there is an area designated for scrolling, usually up and down is on the right edge of the pad, and left and right is on the top. You should be able to turn this off in your mouse drivers, with these drivers almost always comes a little icon on the bottom right corner of the screen, double clicking this or right clicking should bring you some options.

    It defiantly sounds like the driver for the mouse pad, the functionality may be called gesture control. Take a look at the add/remove programs component in your control panel, do you see more than 1 touch pad install?

Richard,

Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device

The device is the graphics chipset. What version of Windows operating system was not stated.
Gateway Support > Gateway T16 Notebook PC > Main Support page. (When the main page is opened, the Driver tab is automatically opened)

The different versions of Windows Vista, and 32-bit versions; is all that is offered.
Scroll to the bottom of the page to the VGA heading. Click on the blue - VGA Driver
A small window will come up -
Opening VGA_ATI_8.383.1.0_Vistax86_A.zip

Make SURE there is a Green dot in the small circle, to the left of Save File.
IF not; left-click in the small circle to the left of Save File.
Now go to the bottom of the small window, and click on OK.

A small download window will come up. Allow the file to download all the way, then DOUBLE-click right on the file name.
Go to the far left in the next small window, and click on - Extract all files.
At the bottom of the next 3 small windows, click on Next, Next, and Finish.
If you are not asked to restart your computer, do so.

Reset your Screen Resolution

Assuming you have WinXP;
Right-click on an empty area of your desktop screen.
In the drop down list, left-click on Properties.
In the Display Properties window left-click on the Settings tab. (Top)

Screen resolution is stated in the middle. There is a Slider underneath the heading.
[ Green tipped, and capped, Down Arrow)

Drag the Slider left or right, to bring the screen resolution to the correct setting.

(Ignore if you are aware. Put your mouse cursor on the Slider.
Left-click, hold the left mouse button down. Now move your mouse left, or right, and drag the Slider )

The correct screen resolution is........................hey, come back here with THAT Spanky!...............1280 x 1024

http://support.gateway.com/s/MONITOR/7003481/700348103.shtml

To the right look at Color quality.
Should have - Highest (32 bit) in the box underneath.
If not left-click on the blue Down Arrow to the right of the box.
Left-click on Highest (32 bit) in the list.

Now go down to the bottom right of the Display Properties window, and left-click on Apply.
Finally go to the bottom left side, and click on OK.

Windows XP has the drivers.

I could not upgrade neither windows XP, Windows 7 of this Product Model: GT5662. Would you assits? Thanks.


Hello kelvinvu, according to the information that I gathered from this computer model, it has Windows Vista 32 bit home premium installed on it. Windows XP is an older operating system so you can't "upgrade" to it. You could however install a fresh copy (more likely completely erasing all your previous information on vista and data files) or you could upgrade to Windows 7. Since you are using "Windows Vista 32 bit home premium", you have to upgrade to "Windows 7 32 bit home premium" or better. So if you were trying to "upgrade" to Windows 7 Home Basic, it will not allow that since it considers that a downgrade in the Operating System. You should actually be able to pop in the Windows 7 Home Premium CD while vista is running and start the upgrade process pretty painlessly that way. Just access the CD and walk through the menus for upgrading Vista to Windows 7. As a reminder, you must use the 32 bit discs. If you try and use the 64 bit discs (a different operating system as far as windows is concerned) you will have to go through the same process of installing a new version of windows (not upgrade). I hope this has solved your specific problem kelvinvu, have a great day!
