Question about Gateway Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I received the replacement keyboard for my Gateway laptop computer without the "easy to read instructions". I was hoping that these instructions for removal of the defective keyboard and installation of the replacement along with diagrams could be sent to me via e-mail. The item # is 8017100R for the 86-Key Keyboard for Vista Avalon Silver (US) Thank you, Sue Polimeni

Hi
The best I could find was the product page for the keyboard. Otherwise you'll need to either contact the people who you bought it off or use a general guide for replacing keyboard such as this one. It does have laptop - specific instructions for some Gateway laptops - hopefully you'll hit lucky!

You could try searching specifically for "(your laptop make & model number) keyboard replacement guide" if the above link does not work. Google usually has the answers! Alternatively if you provide me with the model number I could have a look around for you.

Hope this helps and good luck!
Philip

How do I replace a keyboard on a Gateway NE522?


Laptop keyboard replacement procedures are all similar,

Search on the internet for how to replace ne552 keyboard (or similar). You my find quite a number of nearly relevant instructional videos and step-by-step instructions, referring to slightly different models..Look at a few and see how similar they are, pick one and follow it eg
Replace Keyboard Gateway Laptop or
Replace Keyboard on Gateway Laptop NE56R
What you really need is the maintenance & service manual, but there doesn't seem to be one. You might try contacting Gateway support and asking.
Keyboards for your model are readily available, on ebay or from commercial parts suppliers, even Gateway

Keyboard seems to stick


Find a tear down guide for your laptop. You'll want to get to the connection beneath the keyboard and see if the connection can be reseated. This will probably fix the problem. It could also be damaged, in which case you'll need a replacement.

Emachines laptop keyboard lights


Try downloading and installing the keyboard drivers.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Gateway Support" or "eMachine Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the keyboard drivers.

You could just purchase a light (lamp) that plugs into your usb port and hangs over the keyboard. Try the link below.

Received a replacement keyboard from gateway but, no installation instruction included.


The keyboard should have a USB plug or a PS/2 plug that should plug right into the back of your computer
