Question about Gateway SOLO 9300 PII 400 MHZ 128 RAM 6GB HD WITH HUGE 15" TFT SCREEN (GAT93400) PC Notebook
I installed windows XP on my laptop but the touchpad did not work, I removed it and installed Win 98 back but my touchpad still does not work, occasionally after about every 10 restarts it will work, Any ideas?
The Gateway support site has a OS compatibility chart posted and it indicates that XP won't work on the solo 9300.

Sounds like the cable is not securely connected to the motherboard.
I would doubt the OS is responsible for this problem.
Nice little machine, the service manual is available for download for free. Might give a shot at refastening the cable.
If you're not that enthusiastic about taking a laptop apart, possibly an external mouse?
Put XP back on. If you have enough memory, it runs just fine.
