The Gateway support site has a OS compatibility chart posted and it indicates that XP won't work on the solo 9300.

Re: gateway solo 9300

Sounds like the cable is not securely connected to the motherboard.
I would doubt the OS is responsible for this problem.
Nice little machine, the service manual is available for download for free. Might give a shot at refastening the cable.
If you're not that enthusiastic about taking a laptop apart, possibly an external mouse?
Put XP back on. If you have enough memory, it runs just fine.
Good luck

Your laptop has not support for Windows Vista or Windows 7. Other components of the system could not be recognized due to lack of drivers. Unfortunately you have to stick with Windows XP as it was originally thought.

You will need to buy an original Windows 98 (or newer, such as Windows XP) installation disk and Certificate of Authenticity with 25-digit registration key, then use it to reinstall Windows on the laptop. Nothing from your home PC will do this for you, unfortunately. You can probably find a Windows 98 installation disk fairly cheaply on the internet.

I htink the easies way would be to get the keyboard out. Have you been able to do so? There might be some small "sliders" with holes in them between the keys around the edge of the keyboard. Put a paperclip in the hole and slide the "locking bolt" towards the middle of the keyboard (only a mm or two) to loosen it.
