Having problems with your Gateway Computer Cases ?

Gateway laptop,left touchpad button

\015 My left touchpad button is floppy like a spring or something gave out.Are there parts available? or a diagram with part numbers?\015

Answers :

You would have to contact Gateway for a new part. You will need a new palm rest that has the touchpad and buttons built into it.
I would try customer service first. I can't find a good link on their home page to get repair parts.
That being said, if the computer is more than a year old, usually try e-bay first. It will be much cheaper. Just look up parts or maybe palm rest for a Gateway (and add your model).

I've had the acer one for 2 weeks. While using it today, the single and double click functions of the touchpad stopped working. The touchpad still moves the arrow around the screen and the left and right buttons next to the touchpad function normally. Did I inadvertantly do something to change the touchpad function? There's nothing in the small manual that came with the computer to cover this situation. Thanks for the help. Carl
