I just purchased the new gateway netbook lt series and I have problems with the touchpad. Sometimes it does not even load and then when it does load it will be working and then just freeze up. It will then sometimes work after a few minutes and other times I have to re-boot and hope it loads and will work. What can I do I am so disapointed in my first gateway. Maybe I should of stayed with Dell?????

If your only problem is with the touchpad, find either the device drivers or the ALPS touchpad program and uninstall them. You will need to connect an external keyboard for the rest. Go to:
and search for the right drivers for your specific model. Download and reinstall them. That should solve that problem.

As for the computer freezing, I would make sure you didn't get any viruses or spyware by mistake. is a good place to scan your computer and fix it for free. I would try that first. If that doesn't work, I hate to say that you should either reformat your computer (either with the supplied disks or by pressing some of the function keys on startup, before the windows screen.) or contact Gateway customer support. Hope this helps.

Is there a way to temporarily disable the scroll function of the touch-pad?

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

Usually a notebok had a lock scroll button right above the touch pad, but the Eee series is a Netbook series so not this case, so we can turn it off with the help of windows settings.

Eee series is loaded with the Linux OS by defualt if you have a Linux based system then;

Nevigate to your Control Panel from Start button then select mouse, click on Touch Pad. There you can see all the settings regarding the Pad, Turning it off as well.

If above is not the case, i.e; you are having a Linux OS then;

Goto Settings, nevigate to Touchpad and Set Touchpad as "disable".

I hope this will help you out. Even if you are having issues, questions, queries regarding your problem, do contact me.

Concerned, Nooh.

Did you download the drivers via model or serial number. Generally the webcams drivers that come with Gateway are in three. Be sure you unistall the one that doesn't work before installing the other, restarting your computer each time. Also check the dates of the drives compared to the time you purchase the machine, some driver may be old or updated. Lastly, which i am sure you've done, make sure you have chosen the correct Operating System if you are not downloading the file from the web cammed computer.

Find the one that looks like a finger on a touchpad and run
your finger over it. This activates or deactivates the touchpad.
