I can't click on anything on my home screen. Gateway N522 series. Won't tab or do anything. Helpppp!!!


Try ensuring that the touchpad hasn't been accidentally disabled (Hold down the '[fn]' key and press the F6 key on your keyboard to toggle the touchpad(mouse) to be enabled or disabled.

Have you tried using an external keyboard and mouse?

If the external keyboard and mouse work then we know it is something to do with the built in keyboard and touchpad on your laptop (likely - but not positively a hardware issue). If it does not work then we know that the issue is likely (but again not positively) software based.

Hi melissamhahn..
Try this solution to your problem
*************************************
To fix an unresponsive touchpad on your laptop, reactivate it by using the Function key on the keyboard and the Fn key.

This process is different for each computer manufacturer.
If unsure which Function key enables and disables the touchpad, try each one at a time and then
attempt to use the touchpad after each one.

A...Locate the "Fn" key of the laptop keyboard.
The "Fn" key has different colored text or the key is a different color.
B...Locate the function (F1 through F12) key at the top of the keyboard that disables or enables the touchpad on the laptop.
The key typically has an icon that resembles a touchpad with a finger touching it or a touchpad with a diagonal line through it.
C...Press both the "Fn" and touchpad Function key at the same time to reactive the touchpad on your laptop.
Move your finger along the touchpad to verify that it works. Press the combination at any time to disable the touchpad again.
Note: Mac computers use "F2" to enable and disable the touchpad.
D. Sony Vaio Users: Start>Settings>Control Panel>Double click the Mouse icon.
Look at the top left hand side of the page, at the top and make sure that the "Tapping" box is unchecked, if it is checked then, you will uncheck it.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

The mouse pad has stopped working on my sons emachines e430 how can i get it start working again???????


Hi there,

At the top of the keyboard there is a touchpad toggle button (enables and disables the touchpad) that may automatically be disabled at boot time.

You will see just above the keyboard three oval silverish buttons the first one on the left is to enable or disable the touchpad.

Here's the official site for the manual showing all the function keys and features:

Looking for part gateway p/n 5501545


No one seems to be selling that particular part anymore, which laptop do you have? The Gateway Solo 9300? You may have to try to find an upgrade that's compatible as far as the motherboard connection is concerned.

Solo Series 9300 components are here.
Solo Series 9300VE components are here.

If you don't have a Solo 9300, you can look up your laptop model on Gateway's website; newer models can be found here and older models, also called "Legacy Notebooks," here.

Keyboard type


This problem is very common on laptop computer. What happens is while you type on the keyboard, your hand comes close to or touches the touchpad below the keyboard. The system see that as a mouse click and so your cursor will 'jump' to whatever location on the screen the mouse pointer is at.

This can happen, even if you do not feel your hand touch as the touchpads are sensitive enough to respond to your hand bring just above them.

Gateway and most manufacturers have addressed this common user frustration on new models of laptops by either adding some 'palm detection' to their touchpads and drivers or adding a simple way to turn the touchpad on or off.

Depending what model system you have (solo 9100 vs 9150) and what operating system you are running, you may have a few options.

First off, you must be using Windows 98 to have access to these options in the touchpad driver.

For a solo 9100 you have adjust to touchpad sensitivy. To get to the touchpad settings click Start->Settings->Control Panel. Double click on the MOUSE icon. Click on the TOUCHPAD tab. On this tab you can set the threshold setting as heavy as possible to help decrease the frequency at which the mouse will jump while typing. In the solo 9100 models, this is the only setting that addresses this problem.

For the solo 9150 you can the disable clickin while typing. To get to this setting: Click on START->Setting->Control Panel. Double Click on the MOUSE icon. Click on the TOUCHPAD tab. In the TAPPING section, Place a check mark next to Disable tapping when typing.

If these settings do not help or are not available due to another operating systems etc, then your best option is to physcially cover the touchpad when you are doing things that require a lot of tyings. If you need a lot of mouse/typing, then you can add an external mouse to assist you. I have found that placing a post-it note over the touchpad is more convenient then other barriers since it light sticks to help it stay in place.

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.

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
