Question about Gateway M280E

Open Question

I bought a used Gateway M380E with no program in it. I installed additional memory and Windows 7 Ultimate hoping for the Tablet feature. Everything works fine so far (2 days) but could not use the Pen or other Tablet features of the notebook. I can write using mouse on the Journal but not with the Pen. Any advise as to how I can use my notebook's Tablet PC feature is greatly appreciated. SBD

SOURCE: gateway tablet screen does not respond to pen.

I have a Gateway CX2724 and previously had another Gateway tablet (model I don't remember) but they both look alike and use the same pens. I've had 3 pens and they all periodically stop working. When one stops, I pick up another pen and work with it so that makes me think the problem has more to do with the pen. (They have all died and later come alive.) Sometimes though I can't find the extra pen and have resorted to removing the working pen tip / nib and reinserting it very snugly after wiping off the shaft. The nib is held in merely by friction. You can remove it by pinching its little tip between your fingernails and pulling it straight out. I wipe off the shaft and put it snugly back in. Sometimes I don't take it out, but just press it harder into the pen by pushing it firmly onto a padded surface (so that the tip doesn't deform.) Usually one of these "treatments" works. I know that extra nibs are available with the pen. There must be some reason that the manufacturer thinks they may need to be replaced periodically. But I've never seen any documentation on this.

If it's the pen it's self... There is a one cell battery about the same size as a 'AAA' a little slender.

SOURCE: gateway tablet cx200X, tablet features won't work/ pen etc

All, There is DEFINITELY A PEN IN THE CX2620 stylii. I just replaced mine with a AAAA battery. The old one (which is a AAAA size, you can find these inside 9-volt batteries) had acid buildup on its positive end and that is why the pen went inactive. There is a lot of debate over this pen problem and I guarantee 90% of the time it's related to the battery. I can do a clean replace on anybody's CX2620 pen/stylii with a fresh battery for $10. If interested email me at [email]kevinteman@hotmail.com[/email] . You pay for shipping, your total about $17 or so. I have never done this before but I just replaced mine flawlessly so I can do others. I know there are a lot of dead stylii out there and people don't know what to do, took me a while to figure it out.
Thanks, Kevin Teman [email]kevinteman@hotmail.com[/email]

I need operating system mine is lost its harddrive is dead, so i have new one


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.)

I installed windows xp on my toshiba tecra m4. How stylus pen works?


Toshiba Tecra M4-S435 is Tablet PC. Windows XP (Profession) has no option of touch screen.
In order to use the feature, you need to install Windows XP Tablet PC Edition or you may install Windows 7, which supports this feature and you would definately be able to use stylus and touch screen, as I have installed Windows 7 and its working fine with all the drivers etc.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

Maybe IBM have some drivers but as XP is obsolete, they may not.

Operating Systems as supplied from new.
Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit
Microsoft Windows Vista Business 32-bit and 64-bit
Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit
Microsoft Windows XP Tablet Edition 2005

Are you using XP Tablet Edition as that edition has the drivers for the features?
