Question about Gateway M280E

1 Answer

When I make a selection using the mouse I used to be able to tap on the mouse pad for this Gateway Tablet PC, now I have to use the right-click selection.

    I need to find out where to locate the "tapping zone" in the control panel settings. I downloaded the information but the section is grayed out. Troubleshooting the issue says it is working properly.

If you go to the Gateway computers support site there may be updated drivers or software for your tablet pc that allows tweaking the mouse pad adjustments (with more refinement possible than was on your tablet originally).

It is also possible that the pad is experiencing wear / mechanical problems.

Shut off touchpad


Most pc's use a program named symnaptics touch pad. Go to the control panel, select the mouse tab then mouse properties and device settings (select disable). Here you can disable the touch pad. I would recommend you have a usb mouse up and running prior to doing this procedure (saves tons of headache).

When I click the mouse pointer it doesn't work I have no choice but to use the right mouse buttons to make selections. How do I fix this issue?


Hello,
Usually this problem can be easily solved by accessing and changing your mouse settings. On your PC desktop, click "start", then click "control panel", then click "mouse", then on the "buttons" tab you'll see an option that says, "button configuration". That button needs to be adjusted according to which side of the mouse you'd like the pointer to work from. Once you set the side you'd like, make sure you click, "OK" to seal the deal!
Hope this helps.
Sincerely, CBR2009

Where can i download sofware of gateway


For your tablet to function again, you'll need the WACOM tablet driver which is NOT provided by Gateway, since they do not manufacture the tablet themselves.

You'll need the following drivers from the GATEWAY site to fix your button issue:

9524572.exe - Gateway M275 Button driver, version 5.01.2600.2156

and from the WACOM site you'll need the Tablet PC driver.
-Go to www.Wacom.com
-Select your location and language on the right
-On the next page, choose downloads from the top navigation bar
-In Step 1 scroll down and pick Tablet PC
-In Step 2 choose your operating system
-Follow the download instructions provided on the site from there

How to use the pen


Using the pen is quite simple.
You extract it from its storage space and use it as a mouse, left clicking it as you would a mouse.
By pressing the tip of the pen on an area on desktop or on an application window and maintaining the pressure for a short while, you activate the context menus (the equivalent of a right click.)

On the Windows task bar (for Windows XP) there is a small icon near the start button that shows a pen pointing outside: that is the input panel. Click the icon with a mouse or your pen, and an input area opens. In that area you write with the pen (writing Pad) or enter letters and symbols one at a time (Character Pad) or use a virtual keyboard.

Under the red X that closes the input panel there is a small gear. C;ick the gear with the pen or a mouse to configure the settings.

Your pen may have an eraser at the rear end and/OR on the side. It is used to erase characters or whole sentences.

To actually record (write) what you enter with the pen you must have a text-editing application open and running.
Whenever you approach the pen to the screen near a text-area (search area of IE or other compatible applications) a small icon appears to be clicked to enter text. This happens is you select UNDOCK in the input panel configuration.

This should get you started with the pen. Try these steps, and if you have any other questions post them as comments to this thread and it will be my pleasure to answer them.

Mouse Pad and Right and Left Buttons


Great job, I myself prefer to use a extra mouse rather then the built in one, if you chose to do this it wont work right away but if you give it a moment to recognize the mouse it will then be functionable.
