Question about Gateway CX2610 Notebook
My pen for my tablet has stopped working with the screen. it has for 20 months. Had my pen replaced and the second one has stopped working too. I own a cx2610 purchased in 2005. I wish Gateway would own up to a bad problem related to their pens. I no longer have a support contract as it is expired. $50.00 is a lot to buy a new pen that'll only last a little while. At least my two digitizer pens have only lasted about 6 months each until they get to glitchy to use. They still work to draw the mouse icon to a point on the screen, but no inking, clicking, etc. for that I have to use my trackpad and buttons. tried gateway online chat support. They only want me to buy new pens. Even then, no guarantee the problem won't reoccur.
There is DEFINITELY A PEN IN THE CX2620 stylii. I just replaced mine with a AAAA battery. The old one (which is a AAAA size, you can find these inside 9-volt batteries) had acid buildup on its positive end and that is why the pen went inactive. There is a lot of debate over this pen problem and I guarantee 90% of the time it's related to the battery. I can do a clean replace on anybody's CX2620 pen/stylii with a fresh battery for $10. If interested email me at email@example.com . You pay for shipping, your total about $17 or so. I have never done this before but I just replaced mine flawlessly so I can do others. I know there are a lot of dead stylii out there and people don't know what to do, took me a while to figure it out. By the way, I'm also considering starting the class action suit against Gateway for the pen problem if I get enough people, so let me know if you're interested in that too.
Thanks, Kevin Teman firstname.lastname@example.org

I have a CX2620, got it in May 2006. Got my first pen replaced not long after that, actually within a month or two (wouldn't calibrate). Now the second one doesn't work at all, I can't tell if it's the pen or the tablet itself, except that the mouse will draw in the tablet spaces. I kept the old one as a spare, but neither click, draw, nada.
