    I reinstalled xp and installed the drivers. The ethernet driver will not load.
    Virus or bad network card????

    IT IS NOT THE NETWORK CARD. I HAVE THIS PROB WITH GATEWAYS EVERYTIME I FIX THEM. GATEWAY SUCKS. THEY USE "LATE" AND "EARLY" MODEL PARTS THIS IS PART OF WHY THEY **** SO MUCH ***. MOREOVER THE RESTORE CDS DONT HAVE THE PROPER DRIVERS ON THEM IF THEY DID i WOULD HAVE ETHERNET NOW. THE DEVICE WONT EVEN SHOW UP IN THE DEVICE MANAGER IT JUST DOSENT SEEM TO THINK IT IS THERE. BUT IT WORKED FINE BEFORE IT WAS WIPED (NOT WIPED BY ME OR I WOULD HAVE BACKED UP THE DRIVERS)

    That is certainly odd. I've had to download the drivers for the 7330GZ from Gateway many times and they always seemed to work. Are you trying to install it on a fresh windows install? Which operating system are you trying to install it on? I'm guessing it's XP since Vista would run at a snails speed on that laptop.

A bad network card can be the issue here, if you're SURE that you've gotten the right drivers from gateway and followed their instructions then I'd try getting a USB network adapter or PCMCIA card. For that laptop, almost anything should work as long as it's compatable with your operating system, but it's always best to buy at a computer shop and see if they'll let you try it and make sure that it's compatable with your computer before buying.

the usb network adapter probably isn't working properly without drivers.You should be able to get the the drivers for your model adapter at the belkin website under support. Then if your laptop is lacking a cd drive you can just load the drivers on to thumb drive and install them from there. I hope i was able to help.

Dell Dimemsion 9100 cannot connect to internet. Windows cannot repair the problem. Tried Windows and Dell drivers for network adapter with same results. Yellow caution sign on network icon.


Hi there

I can understand your issue.

When you same yellow caution i believe the network driver is not installed properly. To resolve this issue please go to device manager.

Locate for the network adapter and click on + sign to explore it.
Below that you can see your network device name, right click on and click uninstall.

Then reboot the computer and that will try to install the network driver ( It works in XP & VISTA). Cause XP & VISTA has the ability to load the default driver.

Then try to reinstall it and that should work.. If still the same issue kindly revert.......

Unable to unistall to reinstall new driver


I think your best bet would be to disable the network adapter in "Device Manager". Install the driver that you want to use, then restart the PC and see if it sets it up with the driver you want. I don't know if "Vista" has the "Driver Rollback" feature, but if it does you may can try that also. I'm thinking the reason error messages occur when you're trying to uninstall that driver is because it's in use and needs to first be disabled. I'm not too familiar with Vista cause I've heard many bad things about it and didn't want to chance it, so unfortunately I can only give you my best guess ... hope this helps
