Help with d2d recovery for gateway Lt 20 notebook


Try tapping the Del key. Also try F11, if neither of those work, then try these combos below:

Fn+F2
Fn+F8
Fn+F10
Fn+F11
Fn+F12
Shift+F2
Shift+F8
Shift+F10
Shift+F11
Shift+F12

Remember to hit these key combos before Vista loads, only when you sure the keys were pressed, cross it off the list on move on. When you do determine the correct key combo, please post back here, it will help others with the same question.

My Gateway NE56R41U will not resond.Locked on open


If you accidentally held down the shift key for more than 8 seconds (could have left something on your keyboard?) then it will lock it out to where you can't use it. Just go to the start menu and then settings, then control panel and then finally accessibility options. Make sure all the 3 boxes are unchecked. (Sticky keys, Filter keys, and Toggle keys)
What I want to know is how did you type this question in the first place if your keyboard isn't working.

How to make the @ button work on a ne 522 series gateway laptop


Contact Gateway support and they will guide you on how to change keyboard settings so that the @ symbol works on the keyboard. Depending where you are from, the @ key for USA is located above the No. 2 key & UK is located next to the colon key, if shift 2 is pressed in UK then it may show @ key as american or vise versa

Gateway M460 capitalization issues


Try both shift keys, the left one may have died. Otherwise use Caps Lock.

Try this:
Navigate to Control Panel and double click Keyboard.
Select the Driver Tab at the top.
Now click Update Driver.

Updating the driver may work, otherwise a new board may be needed.

Take care!

My inspiron mini 1018 notebook's keyboard is not working properly. The left shift key appears to be stuck and I really having a hard time using the whole keyboard. I remember having spilled a few drops...


When water spills into a notebook, you should fully disassemble the notebook & thoroughly inspect its inside. Look for any traces of liquid on the circuit boards & on other components. On circuit boards, liquid damage appears in the form of whitish traces. These needs to be wiped off. This can be done using a tooth brush moistened with few drops of hand sanitizer liquid.
Check all internal connectors & make sure that no liquid seeped into them. Dry them if needed.
When you are done, re-assemble back the notebook.
If the liquid fell on the keyboard & you found out that the keyboard is no longer working, then you might have to replace the keyboard.

Gateway MX6124 laptop: some keys on the right side of the keyboard display numbers instead of letters. Keys involved and actual display are: Row Starting with q: u=4, i=5, o=6, p=*, Row Starting with a:...


Your computer is in keypad mode. To check, turn off your Num Lock. On my system that disables the embedded keypad. To fix, go into setup (usually F1, F2 or delete when booting). Somewhere you should find a setting for using the embedded keypad. Mine has two options, Fn Key Only and By Num Lock. Yours may be different. One activates the embedded keypad, which you are seeing. Try the other setting.

It didn't work!


Yeah, it happens this way many times. The shift keys on the board are linked, both right and left have the same function, and therefore use the same circuit in order to work. When one goes they both go, and, unfortunately, replacement is the only option. Sorry.

7330GZ Gateway laptop keyboard doesn't work


There is one thing you can try. Uninstall the drivers for the keyboard from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the keyboard and reinstall the drivers automatically. If this doesn't work, then I'm afraid the Shift key function has failed and the keyboard will need replaced in order to fix it.
