Could this be a problem with the USB on the PC? Check that USB is enabled in BIOS. Give some more info, there may be more things to try.

Cannot download vista driver for Belkin wireless keyboard and optical mouse. I currently only have a cd for XP so wont load on to vista.


Have you tried Belkin's support website? If it's not there it may not officially be supported in Vista.

Have you tried loading the drivers for XP on it? Put the XP cd in the drive, but don't open the cd. Then, go to Device Manager > right click the keyboard or mouse > Update Driver, and then tell it not to search automatically, and tell it to search the cd for the driver, then continue. If it finds a driver it will load it.

Number lock does not work on gatway


Try updating the driver. If it is a driver problem, this should fix it.

Go to Control Panel > Device Manager > click on keyboard > right click on the keyboard displayed and click "properties" > go to "uninstall driver" click ok. Reboot your computer, the driver will reinstall itself automatically.

Hope that helps.

Keyboard type


This problem is very common on laptop computer. What happens is while you type on the keyboard, your hand comes close to or touches the touchpad below the keyboard. The system see that as a mouse click and so your cursor will 'jump' to whatever location on the screen the mouse pointer is at.

This can happen, even if you do not feel your hand touch as the touchpads are sensitive enough to respond to your hand bring just above them.

Gateway and most manufacturers have addressed this common user frustration on new models of laptops by either adding some 'palm detection' to their touchpads and drivers or adding a simple way to turn the touchpad on or off.

Depending what model system you have (solo 9100 vs 9150) and what operating system you are running, you may have a few options.

First off, you must be using Windows 98 to have access to these options in the touchpad driver.

For a solo 9100 you have adjust to touchpad sensitivy. To get to the touchpad settings click Start->Settings->Control Panel. Double click on the MOUSE icon. Click on the TOUCHPAD tab. On this tab you can set the threshold setting as heavy as possible to help decrease the frequency at which the mouse will jump while typing. In the solo 9100 models, this is the only setting that addresses this problem.

For the solo 9150 you can the disable clickin while typing. To get to this setting: Click on START->Setting->Control Panel. Double Click on the MOUSE icon. Click on the TOUCHPAD tab. In the TAPPING section, Place a check mark next to Disable tapping when typing.

If these settings do not help or are not available due to another operating systems etc, then your best option is to physcially cover the touchpad when you are doing things that require a lot of tyings. If you need a lot of mouse/typing, then you can add an external mouse to assist you. I have found that placing a post-it note over the touchpad is more convenient then other barriers since it light sticks to help it stay in place.

Hpdv9000 laptop mouse wont work


Check if you have installed the latest drivers...
For the touchpad, you should be able to find them on the hp support site
For external mouse, there should be drivers on the manufacturers site or the driver disk that came along with it.

Is it the touchpad that doesn't work, or is it an external mouse?
