Having problems with your Gateway SOLO 9300 PII 400 MHZ 128 RAM 6GB HD WITH HUGE 15" TFT SCREEN (GAT93400) PC Notebook ?

Gateway solo 9300

\015 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?\015

Answers :

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.
\015\012I would doubt the OS is responsible for this problem.
\015\012Nice little machine, the service manual is available for download for free. Might give a shot at refastening the cable.
\015\012If you're not that enthusiastic about taking a laptop apart, possibly an external mouse?
\015\012Put XP back on. If you have enough memory, it runs just fine.
\015\012Good luck
