Question about Gateway CX2724 Notebook

1 Answer

Touchpad not working

After taking my Gateway CX2724 to the Geek Squad idiots (biggest mistake in my life) I recieved my laptop back with either the keyboard nor touchpad working. I assume it is an unplugged cable. I was able to get the keyboard replugged according to the hardware manual that comes on the laptop. But I cannot figure how to get to the touchpad. In addition, when I was plugging the keyboard in, other cables were also unplugged. , So far, the only thing that I cannot fix on my own is the touchpad. I didn't want to tear open the laptop without having something like an exploded view or directions. Please help!

    The website you recommended did not have my specific model, but I took the keyboard off again, and noticed that I had missed one of the ribbon cables that was not connected. The first time I had the keyboard off I noticed several cables other than just the keyboard, but somehow missed that one. Thank you very much for the clue.

1) Examine your "Function"/"F" keys and look for a touchpad icon. If you find one, hold the "Fn" key and press the touchpad icon button to unlock the touchpad. Move on to Step 2 if your laptop doesn't support this feature.

  • 2) Plug a USB mouse into an open port on your laptop. Click the Windows "Start" button. Click "Control Panel" in Windows XP and double-click "Device Manager." Type "Device" in the search box in Vista and Windows 7 and click "Device Manager" from the results.
  • 3) Click "+" next to "Mice and other pointing devices." Right-click the touchpad and select "Enable." Your touchpad is now unlocked.

    I purchased a restart/restore disc for my emachine two weeks ago i recieved it some time last week and come to find out that it dosnt work, i took it to best buy geek squad and the put in a disc of their...


    Was the Geek Squad's disc being detected? Or did you just take them your disc to see if they could get a computer to recognize it? If not, then you may just need to change some settings at Boot for your computer to start booting from your restore disc. I've never personally dealt with the Geek Squad, but I would not just take their word for something. I've had several people very unhappy with the outcome of letting them service their computers. I've talked to other people who were very happy with the Geek Squad service. Try taking your disc to a local computer shop and ask them if they can put the disc in their computer to see if it is a functioning Restore Disc. MADHATTER COMPUTERS

    No Network Connections After Repairs


    Ah, yet another NASTY Geek Squad experience for the recordbooks...if you bought the computer at Best Buy, they should have been able to diagnose and replace the bad RAM stick. Replacing the RAM stick shouldn't have caused the network connections to be lost. You can go into your control panel and set up a new connection in "My Network Places", or "Network & Sharing Center" (the name depends on which operating system you have. The wizard will walk you through creating a new connection, so you shouldn't have any problems.

    More than likely, your computer was never sent to Gateway. They should have records for that serial number on your computer as to any repairs that were done. And it's a good idea to register your computer with Gateway anyway for severe issues that come up. I would also recommend finding a local computer repair shop if you can -- their business depends on the quality of their work and they're usually cheaper and cause less headaches than chainstores, and you won't wait a month to get your computer back.
