Had to take apart a Gateway NV55c laptop and it appears that there is something wrong with the ribbon cable that connects the touch pad to the motherboard. I was going to order a new cable online but will take a cpl. of days or so to get here so was going to install an external mouse so my daughter could use her laptop until the new cable comes in. The problem is that when you power up the laptop it takes you to the lock screen and I can't enter the password to get the lock screen to go away because I need to click inside the box to get the cursor to start flashing to enter the password. Is there anyway to bypass this so I can install the external mouse?
