You can remove your keyboard and clean the keyboard contacts with the contact cleaner solution but if this don't work at all you need to replace your keyboard since the keyboard chip controller may have been damage.

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

I cannot turn off my on screen keyboard on my gateway

Go to "Control Panel" > "All Control Panel Items" > "Ease of Access Center". 2. Scroll down a bit and select the "Use the computer without a mouse or keyboard" option.
3. Check or uncheck the box for "Use On-Screen Keyboard". Click "Save" when you are finished.
Now the On-Screen Keyboard should be enabled or disabled as desired.

My gateway solo 3400 laptop touchpad and keyboard quit working

It sounds like the ribbon has come loose that connects to the motherboard. Laptop repair is a fair bit harder for DIY, but if you're brave, see if you can figure out how to remove the keyboard assembly and reseat that ribbon.
