Question about Gateway 2520915 Keyboard

1 Answer

I have a Gateway keyboard. The email key - F2 - does not activate email. Further, the keys which control the sound of external speakers [switch on/off; increase or decrease volumn] do not work. I can't figure out what the upper far left key does - likes like a calculator icon, but I am not sure

Most of the time, these specialized keyboards come software utilities that need to be downloaded into your computer to make these specialized keys work correctly. If you do not have a software disk. Check www.gateway.com and look for their support page, search for you keyboard device model and look for downloads and drivers for that keyboard.

If this keyboard came with a new computer, look for a keyboard utility in your program list.

If you found this answer helpful, please remember to leave positive feedback.

Thank You,

I am trying to find out what the blue symbols on the function keys of my sk 9020 keyboard stand for


The blue keys serve as a secondary function for your volume control, monitor controls and pause play fast forward rewind (in media mode). In order to use the blue keys that are numbered from F1 to F12, you must depress and hold the Fn key that is located at the bottom left side of the keyboard. Here is a way to test it: Open up any file that plays sound for longer than 1 minute (60 seconds). While this file is playing, hold down the Fn key and simultaneously press F8 and listen to the volume get louder or Fn and F7 together and listen to the sound get lower. The picture of the crescent moon F1 will adjust the brightness of your screen. F2 will magnify your screen. F3 will take you to your email. F4 will take you to your internet home page. F6 will mute the volume. F7 will lower the volume. F8 will raise the volume. F9 will rewind your video playing. F10 will stop the video. F11 will pause or play the video. F12 will fast forward the video.

How to activate wifi in leenovo 3000 g530


Welcome to Fixya

The wifi is already activated by default to the computer when you purchase it. Try to check if the wifi switch is off. Look for a switch infron of the computer or at the side. Toggle the switch and see if the wifi will be activated. You can also try pressing keys on your keyboard. Look for an F key (F1, F2 etc) on your keyboard that has a picture of a tower that has signal or sound wave. Press Fn then Press that particular key to deactivate/active the wifi adapter.

Thank you for using Fixya!

I get no sound from the key board the display shows the keys being pressed all functions look like they are working but no sound at all


We can only guess what keyboard you might have. Maybe it has built in speakers or requires external speakers.

Usually on the keyboards there is a headphone jack. The jack disconnects output if headphones are in. Some keyboards have mute functions. Some use rotary volume controls, some use sliders... The controls can become damaged causing problems.

We don't have ESP to know what model you have and can give no further help without the model number. Always post as much detail and tests you have run.

Where is the location of the wireless switch on Gateway mx6453?


Hi There,

Your notebook does not have a physical wireless switch. However, holding down the fn key (lower left of keyboard) and pressing the F2 key will turn your wireless on and off. Below is the link to your online Manual.

I have a Gateway laptop whose screen just broken and is cracked. However, I also do have an external Gateway monitor, model NO: FPD1730. I hooked up the external monitor to the laptop and it only works in...


Excuse me if I'm talking below you level of expertise...

With an external monitor on a laptop you usually have to activate the plug where you've connected the external monitor cable . This requires pressing 2 keys in combination, usually a FUNCTION button + a specific function key. Yeah, they're named almost the same thing, but I'll try to keep it straight.

On your keyboard's function keys (above the numeric keys typically) should be small pictures besides the standard F1, F2, etc. which are usually in white. You're looking for the picture that resembles a monitor. On my Thinkpad the small pictures are colored blue, and the monitor is on the F7 key. It so happens that my FUNCTION button (different than the function keys we were just talking about) which is located in the lower left of my keyboard is also blue. Yours might be in a different position, but I'm giving you an idea when to look.

When you find the Function Button, press and hold this key and the correct Function key (F1, F2, whatever). You might need to press this 1 or 2 times to get the correct monitor setting. I'm not exactly sure of the order but you'll activate the external monitor, then another combination press will activate both displays, then a 3rd will do another setting, then back to the beginning. If you miss it the first time just slowly press the combination until you get what you're looking for. Be patient, and press once every 5 seconds or so, giving the computer enough time to change its settings.

Hope this helps!
