You can unplug and replug your keyboard and see if it will fix the problem. If it didnt fix the problem , i would advice you to try another keyboard. I had the same problem few months ago and everything works fine after i replace my keyboard.

Cheers,
KJ

justin lee,
Unfortunately, that will not work.You will need to purchase a product key number from Microsoft. You can also try searching the internet and purchase a license copy of Windows with a product key code.

I have lost my manual user guide for a gateway window vista, I need a code, cause I reboot it


Gateway, like most PC's nowadays, generally have a small sticker located on the outer casing with the microsoft operating system licence number on it.

If that fails, the Gateway support desk should be able to help you.

Failing that - this might be helpful.,,,

Switch from WEP to WPA wireless protocol


First have a computer directly plugged into the 2wire

Using windows xp: click on start> then run> then type "cmd" and hit enter.
Type "ipconfig" and hit enter.
You are looking for a default gateway address, usually "192.168.1.254" on 2wire gateways.

Skip the vista section if you are using xp
Using Windows Vista: click start> then click on the search bar and type "cmd" and hit enter.
Type "ipconfig" and hit enter.
You are looking for a default gateway address, usually "192.168.1.254" on 2wire gateways.

Once you find the gateway address, you now have the website address you need to get to your 2wire. Open internet explorer and type that default gateway address in the address bar.

This should take you to a 2wire homepage. At the top click on the "home network" or "local network" tab at the top.
Once there, click on the wireless network link at the top. It will prompt for a password, if you do not know the password, click I forgot for a hint. Click I still cannot remember if the hint doesn't help, it will ask for a system key, which is a 10-digit number on the bottom of the 2wire.

After entering the password you will be in the wireless settings window where you can change the security type to any available that the 2wire has, if it doesn't have it available call the provider and see if they have a firmware upgrade available.
