Question about Gateway 2520915 Keyboard

1 Answer

Keyboard Vol + key is not working.

On my gateway computer keyboard, the Vol + and Eject button on the upper right hand of the keyboard does not work. It was working fine then all of a sudden those 2 buttons stopped working. The Mute and Vol - button works fine its just those other 2 keys. Is it a keyboard problem or driver problem? I updated my drivers and it is all up to date. Also just to note I just bought this computer 2 weeks ago. Please help

Check to see that the batteries are good. They may have sat on the shelf long enough to have lost strength until you bought the unit.

Most of the time, these specialized keyboards come software utilities that need to be downloaded into your computer to make these specialized keys work correctly. If you do not have a software disk. Check www.gateway.com and look for their support page, search for you keyboard device model and look for downloads and drivers for that keyboard.

If this keyboard came with a new computer, look for a keyboard utility in your program list.

Definition for keyboard


As the name implies, a keyboard is basically a board of keys. Along with the mouse, the keyboard is one of the primary input devices used with a computer. The keyboard's design comes from the original typewriter keyboards, which arranged letters and numbers in a way that prevented the type-bars from getting jammed when typing quickly. This keyboard layout is known as the QWERTY design, which gets its name from the first six letters across in the upper-left-hand corner of the keyboard.

While the design of computer keyboards may have come from typewriters, today's keyboards have many other keys as well. Modifier keys, such as Control, Alt/Option, and Command (Mac) or the Windows key (Windows) can be used in conjunction with other keys as "shortcuts" to perform certain operations. For example, pressing Command-S (Mac), or Control-S (Windows) typically saves a document or project you are working on. Most of today's computer keyboards also have a row of function keys (F1 through F16) along the top of the keyboard, arrow keys arranged in an upside-down T, and a numeric keypad on the right-hand side. Some keyboards have even more buttons, allowing you to change the system volume, eject a CD, or open programs such as your e-mail or Web browser.

    My keys on my gateway laptop is not working right


    Your keyboard has a "Numeric Pad" on/off button, in order to compress a full-sized keyboard (with its separate numeric-pad, on the right) into the smaller size of the laptop keyboard.

    Press that on/off button, to resume "normal" operation of those keyboard characters that are "multi-labelled".

    DVD reader


    Hi I'm sorry you are having trouble,
    OK, when was the last time your CD/DVD trey opened properly when instructed by pressing the eject button on your keyboard ?
    This (and all other apple computers now) machine does not have a button other than the keyboard eject button to eject or open the trey. The eject button is usually the last key at the top right hand of the keyboard. If you are not using an Apple Keyboard, it does not always work. And, sometimes, that key no longer sends it's request to the Mac... SO,
    Have you tried another keyboard ?
    Is there a Disk in the reader? Sometimes the disk itself confuses the reader and paralyses it and restarting won't help it even freezes the system....
    That is why there is another way to get the CD drive to open or eject a disk that won't come out:
    Restart your mac or from an off position, turn on the Mac and VERY QUICKLY press the mouse button ( If you have a mighty mouse, be sure to click the left side of the mouse ) and hold that mouse button down until the disk ejects, depending on how much ram you have, it could take 10 seconds to 70 seconds, be patient...
    If the Mac boots without ejecting the disk, then either your mouse or keyboard are not connected directly to the mac, this does not work well through a USB Hub, or the mouse or Keyboard are defective.
    Keep trying it with other keyboards or mice until you get that drawer opened.

    I had the same problem. I solved it by pressing the connect button on the back of the keyboard and then pressing the connect button on the wireless connection base. The keyboard and the base will sync up again. Should solve your problem.
