Question about PC Laptops

Can't access www.gateway.com

Hello,
I'm currently in Hanoi, Vietnam, working and using a Gateway laptop. Recently I had to reformat my laptop with the back-up CD's I created when I bought the laptop. Unfortunately I still need to download all the drivers necessary to complete the formatting. For some strange reason I cannot access the www.gateway.com website. Vietnam does not block access to any websites. Why would Gateway block I.P.'s from VN? My model number is 6020GN.

Thanks,
Ken

    Thanks for responding...

    I can access everything else (email, any website, blogs....) For some reason I can't access gateway's website. About 5 minutes ago I successfully accessed it using an anon proxy but I still can't download the drivers I need. I have limited access to it, probably because it's a proxy. What do you think?

    thanks for the response.......
    It seems the problem is on my end in Vietnam. The ISP I use had blocked gateway.com for some reason. I'm going to request that they take the block off.

To be honest my friend i cant tell why gateway would block ip addresses and i was trying to log in using FTP but seems there is no luck they wont give anonymous log ins

so i guess your only way is to depend on smone who can dowload the drivers for u and then send them to u

may be u can try to download them from a netcafe if possible

sorry my friend thats all i can think about for now

cheers

Drivers


Gateway support site for starters, and then Windows Update, and finally look up components in hardware/Device mgr. Go to the mfrs websites and download the most current ones for your hardware and operating system. If you have an Intel processor, Intel's site "Support" will scan and determine the newest Intel drivers for you. NVidia and AMD's ATI also have drivers. Realtek also provides them for their products.

Driver issues


If you have recovery discs, you can reinstall the drivers from them. Some notebooks have inbuilt recovery partition, you can even reinstall drivers from recovery partition.

You can find the drivers for your notebook model from the below link:

Gateway Mx6440 Sound Problems, installed Vista


Did you download and install this particular driver from Gateway:

http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/search.asp?ref=step&st=browse&platform=10022&model=10773&os=10954&type=10096

This is the specific Vista driver for your computer. If you have been trying others, your hardware probably will not work. Hardware compatibility is an issue with upgrading to Vista. You need to make sure you are getting the right drivers from the device manufacturer, and sometimes you might find none available.

Sound Driver


Did you ask GATEWAY? Is it on board sound? Has the motherboard been replaced? Did you look on the Gateway site for your computer to get the driver for your O.S.?
