Hi, did you check your keyboard settings yet? At Control Panel --> Keyboard - there you can adjust the keyboard delay. That could be the problem. Give it a try and let me know.

SOURCE: how do i hook it up to the internet

Is there a NIC in the Gateway? A place to plug in a cat 5 cable? If yes, there is your answer. You will need a place to plug in the other end ... if you dont have a router, you will need one. I recommend LinkSys routers though there are other brands.

If you have no NIC, get a PCI based NIC at the Big Box Store. They can tell you how to put it in or for a small fee, they will do it for you.

When you have trouble booting, What does it do when you push the on/off button? Do you get power? Do you get LED's, Fans spin, Monitor activity? Consider doing a Full Factory Restore. How old is the machine? Gateway Support can be found here: http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/LX/LX6810/LX6810nv.shtml

Gateway computer 310 series wont power up when


It sounds to me like the power switch is plugged into the motherboard incorrectly. I would need to know the type of motherboard you have to get you the proper schematic for hooking up the power switch and reset switch to the board. If you have the manual to the motherboard, there should be a detailed picture showing you how it is to be hooked up. Please let me know the motherboard model for further assistance.

Good Luck,

My compaq prasario is telling me I have no ip address how can i solve this problem i cannot connect to the internet


How are you connecting to the Internet now¿ That is a serious question since I will assume that this is a second computer hooked up to the same connection you want with the Presario. I also will assume that you don't have a Gateway / Router between the modem and the actual computer. I will assume that you want both of these computers on the Internet at the same time so you will want to hook up the Gateway. To reset the modem so that it will accept a different MAC Address (It's a computer thing) you will need to remove all the connections to the modem and pull out the battery that is behind a hidden door. The modem will need to be in this condition for 1 minute and then it can be hooked up to the new Gateway or Computer however you want it to be hooked up now that the modem has been reset. Good luck.

Gateway 500xl pc will not turn on power button is lit up yellow


A LOT of Gateway computers will go into this catatonic state because of a dead battery. The battery is on the motherboard -- it looks like a metal disk about 1" in diamter. Check it or replace it. This applies to laptops too (not the actual laptop battery, the CMOS battery -- a laptop will have one on the motherboard too)

Hope this helps

We have a main pc attached to our broadband via ethernet and 1 other laptop which is also attached to the the internet but wirelss, my son has purchased an acer aspire 7730/7330 series laptop , how do we...


I think you need to specify the gateway address in your new laptop. For that you have to know the gateway address ( i,e. the IP address of your boardband router/ adsl modem.).

First, go to your old laptop, right click on My Network Places, Right click on the wireless lan connection and select properties. Click on Internet Protocol(TCP/IP) and click properties.
Take a note of the Default gateway.
Now come to your new laptop, use the procedure mentioned above to open the Internet Protocol(TCP/IP) Properties box. Type in the Default gateway address which you have noted earlier. Click ok twice. Now see if you can access the internet. If you can't then let me know the IP address configuration of both your old and new laptops.

I have a us robotics wireless model 9108 router. I have just bought a dell inspiron laptop with vista home premium and am unable to connect to the internet. can you help?


ushally you will have to set up your connection being connected to the router via the lan cable once you do that you can configure your laptop to be allowed to run on the wireless setting.

so if you have another computer hooked upto it you can set the permissions on that you have to create a new network for the laptop.

if you have the manual you can find the configuration settings for your router, most you just open up Internet explorer and then type in home to access this menu.

but for your unit im not 100% sure of the configure setup for it.
