Question about Gateway M275 Tablet PC

2 Answers

Upgraded Gateway M275 Tablet pc to win7 and it runs like a charm. The only problem is that the touch screen doesn't work. I do not have the original stylus but I have another one. Is the screen stylus specific? I was under the impression that I could also touch it with my finger. The reason I'm not entirely sure is because the only drivers I am missing are the video controller and I cannot find them anywhere. I can't even find the vista drivers.

Just finished upgrading an m275 to win7 for a client...all drivers are found automatically for windows except video, but you can just download the drivers from the gateway site unzip them and browse to that location when updating the driver. The install is OS specific for that driver, but the drivers will work in win7. I have all drivers installed, but I do not have a stylus, however my buttons do work.

    UPDATE: I got a second m275 from same client, installed win7, updated video from Gateway website (XP driver in manual mode), this tablet had the stylus, everything works great on it.

    FYI, make sure tabtop (or is that laplet) is online after install and let windows search for drivers.

    the stylus is needed for detection, your finger doesn't work. the win7 drivers work for my m275 - the button drivers so far do not

On the bottom of your tablet/PC you will see a COA sticker stating what version of windows was installed. You can download an image file from various sources on the web/torrents and install using your current license number. The drivers for XP are still available on the gateway website, however if you decide to upgrade to Windows 7 there are some advanced tricks you need to be aware of to install all the drivers, most of which are outlined in previous posts for your m275 tablet here on fixya. :) (I recieved 13 of these from a university science department that upgraded and have successfully re-installed both XP and win7 on all of them.)

How to i get the touch screen working


The touch screen function is controlled by software and drivers. You'll need to start by making sure that you have the correct tablet software installed on your machine, and you may also need the correct WACOM drivers.

You can go here and download the software for your tablet and see if this works for you:

Tablet pc pen isnt working its moves around when i put hte pen to the screen but its like theres no pressure it wont click


A common problem with touch screens on Palm Pilots is contamination getting under the edge causing pressure that fools the screen to thinking there is pressure under the lip of the bezel. There MAY be a similar thing with your tablet PC.

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
