Does gateway mx8711 offer touch screen capability?

I recently got the mx8711 laptop comp and love it so far. We are in process of a move and I have misplaced my info on the computer.
Question:
Does the mx8711 offer touchscreen capabilities? For handwriting recognition/drawing... etc? I was tinkering around on it and saw something that seemed to imply that it is an option and that I would have to buy a "pen" to use that?
Any help or info would be greatly appreciated.

Can I change myGateway MX8711 screen to a screen with a web cam?


Hello!
You can use a screen with a webcam, if your motherboard supports a webcam.
The screen with a webcam would have an additional plugs, that need to be connected to the motherboard.
I suggest that you buy a used computer with webcam instead.

Best of Luck

Gateway MX8711 ran hot. Now will not power up


It sounds like the laptop has had some sort of thermal problem. Do you use it in a dusty/dirty environment? Did the laptop blower fan seem louder than it normaly was in the past? Any number of things (including age) could cause a laptop's fan to stop/work ineffectually and cause it to overheat.

I have been trying to reinstall vista on my mx8711 but before install completes the screen blocks up and freezes and will not finalize installation,try to run fix says bad drivers how do i procede


you may need to re-format hard disk before installing the software as windows will try re-using the existing installation instead of re-placing it. start from the windows cd, then select to go to dos prompt.
type
format c:
then hit enter. this should erase existing data then procede with the normal instalation process

Screen looses display once logged on but works fine in safe mode


try starting into safe mode and set the display driver to a different resolution that you are sure your computer will display. it may also be an issue with the display adaptor when it switches to a specific resolution setting. windows loads your graphics settings at the time of log on.
