Gateway laptop computer screen is upside down and can not use mouse


Shortcut Key To Flip The Screen In the Windows TO 180 Degree..
The shortcut is (or should be, read below**)
for normal windows : Ctrl + Alt + <Up arrow> (or shift+alt+<up arrow>)
and for 180 deg it is : Ctrl + Alt + <Down arrow> (or shift+alt+<down arrow>)
However, you should know that these are default shortcuts for
Intel Extreme Graphics Controller, and you can change them. To
check / change or disable these keys go to control panel->Intel Extreme Graphics->Hot Keys.
**sometimes the shortcuts do not work. This happens when you have not enabled rotation
feature in Display Settings under Intel Graphics Media Accelerator media. You need to
enable rotation in order to be able to Rotate / Flip your windows screen upside down / 90 / 180 / 270 degrees.

Mouse: with mouse, do you mean a usb mouse or the mousepad? if the mousepad isnt working, check ur "F" keys for an icon that looks like a mousepad icon. Then press the "Fn" key + the corresponding mousepad icon key and see if it works.

Gateway labtop


Take it back. Send it back. You shouldn't have to deal with a blown speaker 2 weeks after purchase. Theres a warranty for stuff like that.

I cant get my 'at' key to work.


Try using the other shift key. If that works, then you most likely have a dirty or defective keyboard.
Does the number 2 work? Does your shift key product uppercase letters (does it work with other keys?)
If you are having problems with a flaky keyboard, it's pretty inexpensive to replace it and reduce your stress.

Keyboard key issue in laptop


The metal bar needs to be clipped on to the plastic shift key. Look under the plastic shift key and you can see recess where the metal bar fits. Place the shift key over these recess and push down until it clicks into place.

Gateway keyboard shift key creating special characters when used


This is a mechanical problem. I had the same problem and was able to fix it. Instructions with pictures can be found at: http://www.sportmachines.com/keyboard/

Here are the instructions without the pictures:

I had a problem with my Gateway keyboard where whenver I pressed the left shift key, it type a pipe | (verticle line) character. This is the same character that is above the back slash character . I searched the internet and people were suggesting reloading drivers and apparently Gateway was suggesting a destructive reload of the hard drive. That's absolutely rediculous.
After some research, I determined that on some European style keyboards, the backslash/pipe key is between the left shift and the "Z" key. So, I removed the left shift key to experiment. The key simply pops off by sticking a screwdriver under it. (It is not necessary for you to do this).

When I used a little screwdriver to press on the center of the plastic (red arrow) I would get a proper shift key. However, when I pressed to the right (green arrow), I would get the backslash character. If I pushed at the red and green arrow together, I would get the pipe character.

Ah-hah! I determined the problem. The inside of the keyboard is a "universal" type and can be used with U.S. or Europeon keyboard layouts. For whatever reason, the left shift key was hitting both dots under the key. (The dots are visible in the pictures below.)
To resolve the problem, it is necessary to disassemble the keyboard. On the bottom of the keyboard is a bunch of screws. Remove all of the screws. If you have any rubber feet, there is probably screws under the rubber feet. The feet are just held on by sticky taope, so they peel right off.

Once all of the screws are removed the top and bottom halves seperate easily. The circuits stay in the bottom half of the keyboard, so set the top half of the keyboard to the side. The red arrow marks where the left shift key presses down.

Pull back the top layer and you will see the flexible circuits. These are also made up of multiple layers. When a key is pressed it pushes these layers together to complete the switch circuit. The red arrow marks the shift key. The green arrow marks the backslahs/pipe key for European style keyboards. The blue arrow is yet another key that is not used on U.S. keyboards.

Pull back the first layer of the switch circuit to expose the space between the circuit layers.

Place a small piece of electrical tape on the extra backslash/pipe circuit connection as marked by the red arrow.

Now simply reassemble the keyboard and that weird pipe character will never accidentally show up again.
