    Hi, I've been using this computer for almost 3 years now, but just recently I have the ic changed. Ever since then, the notebook types the '.' key continuously every time I turn on the notebook i.e. ........................................................................................
    And when I stop it by typing any other key and press the '.' key myself, it doesn't work. I have reinstalled the recovery CD and also taken the '.' key apart to see if there were any dirt, etc., but nothing seems to help... Anybody know what's wrong with this? How much it'll cost to fix? Thanks

I spilled a little water on my keyboard as well.Just a few drops not much but the keyboard stopped working , some of the keys at least.I bought a new keyboard from the Internet and it works like a charm now.
They have pretty good install pictures on this site.I watched the pictures and replaced the keyboard myself.It took me no more than 20 min.I payed something like 20-30 bucks for the keyboard.

PS
I called a shop here in Vegas and they were asking 75 just to "diagnose the problem".

F12 button controls WI-FI on or off and doesn't Bluetooth on or of


On my laptop Fn displays a certain number icons corresponding to Esc, F1, F2,F3,F4,F5,F6,F7,F8, F9 with F8 activating and deactivating the Wireless. F10 toggles the overlaid keyboard, F11 allows one to use the overlaid keyboard
There are no icons for F10, F11, and F12.
After the icon for F9, there is one for TAB, another for Space, and a last one.
If you click the last icon you open a second set (second page) where there are other icons that control other features. There is one to turn ON and OFF the BlueTooth Adapter.

How do I use the F9, F10, F11 and F12 keys?


Some Gateway (desktop) computers do not have the dedicated F9, F10, F11 and F12 keys, but for a Gateway laptop, those four keys have dual functions for media control (which is the default use) or as Function keys. However, to use F-9 through F12 as Function keys, you must first press the Fn Key and then press the desired F-key. The Fn key is the second key to the right of the spacebar. To launch the Gateway Recovery process during start-up, you must press Alt+Fn+F10.

Where's F9 to F12?


Go to this link. http://support.gateway.com/s/desktop/2009/gateway/dx/dx4300/DX4820faq4.shtml

It involves pressing the FN key next to the spacebar and then pressing one of the arrow keys next to the F8 key at the top.
