How do I enable the wireless switch on a Gateway mx8711


HI there,

Most Gateway® notebooks have a designated multi-function button or function key to turn your wireless on and off. This information is located in your notebook's user guide.
The user guides for the Gateway® branded notebooks are installed on your hard drive. To access your user's guide, from the Start menu, point to All Programs, and then click Gateway Documentation. User guides are also located on the Gateway® Web site. To download or view a copy of the user's guide from Gateway.com, select your notebook type from the Notebook User Guides support page. Another source of reference for networking your computer is the Gateway Notebook Networking Guide. Quick reference:
  • Gateway® M675 - Multi-function button (last on right)
  • Gateway® 200ARC - Multi-function button (last on right)
  • Gateway® M505 - Multi-function button (first on top)
  • Gateway® M500 - Multi-function button (first on top)
  • The Gateway® M275 notebook uses the system keys FN+F7
  • Most other notebooks use FN+F2
Hope this helps you out.

It could be that the hardware device is not installed. When you first put in the card go to my computer, click on removable disk. you may have to install it before using.

Gateway MX8711 ran hot. Now will not power up


It sounds like the laptop has had some sort of thermal problem. Do you use it in a dusty/dirty environment? Did the laptop blower fan seem louder than it normaly was in the past? Any number of things (including age) could cause a laptop's fan to stop/work ineffectually and cause it to overheat.

Wireless networking hardware not functioning properly.


Check on Device Manager if it is working properly

Right-click My Computer-Properties-Hardware-Device Manager
Click on the plus sign beside Network Adapter and double-click your wireless card.
Check on the device status if it says it's working properly.
Try to disable-enable the adapter by right-clicking on it under the device manager window.
If it has a question mark, it is most likely driver issues so contact your wireless card manufacturer or PC manufacturer if the wireless card is built in.

Inoperative touchpad scroll zone


rwertheim,
I have a MX8711.
I assume you are running Vista.

After you have updated your virus protector program and run a complete scan. You "could" be fixing it and if it is a virus problem, it is immediately reinfecting the driver. If it still doesn't work, I recommend you:

1. Rollback the driver of your touchpad. If it was working, this might do the trick. You can do this at Control Panel > Mouse > Hardware (tab) > Properties (button) > Driver (tab). If it has been updated and that caused the problem, you probably can "Roll Back" to the previous driver and that option will be highlighted.

2. If not, then your driver is probably corrupted. Go to Gateway Support and download the touchpad application file for your computer and SAVE IT TO YOU DESKTOP AND DO NOT RUN IT. Replacing only the driver usually doesn't work in these cases but try that first. Go to Control Panel > System > Device Manager > click on the (+) sign by mice and dbl click on the Symantics PS/2 Port Touchpad (or what ever yours is) > Driver (tab) > Uninstall. When you restart, it should reload the driver from the application that is still installed.

3. If that dosn't work, I recommend uninstall the application from Control Panel > Programs & Features. Restart your computer and install the application you saved on your desktop.

I hope this helps.

Have a blessed day.

Sticky keys


Dear rwertheim


Try the following guide

http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/2007/03/20/key-fell-off-keyboard/

There are no guides from Gateway for the keys available for the but this guide will be more than enough to help you through this one in order to remove them. Its should be completely the same principle.

Cleaning the keys should be done without alchohol based cleaners because the lettering might be erased. Use some soap and warm water instead and gently scrab with a soft brush the bottom of the keys.

Please remember to take out your laptop battery/ac adaptor in any case since you will be working at hardware level with your equipment.

Regards, and I wish you no more sticky keys!
