    I don't know why it says pc notebook.. this was listed under emachine et1161-01. I have the same problem. I bought this desktop and it comes with Windows Vista. I partitioned the drive and put XP Professional on it. A bunch of drivers were missing. Most of the drivers on the Vista disk work on XP, but the network adapter loads the driver but it does not work saying that the driver is corrupt. I would really like to run XP on this as I plan to use it for a server and I don't want to pay for Vista Business when I have XP Pro and it works great!

Wont allow me to share my internet , its hooked up to wifi i want to run a cord to my xbox to give it internet possible?


Yes this is possible. You will need to bridge connections between your WIFI adaptor and Ethernet ports.

Navigate to Network connections, select both your WIFI adaptor and Ethernet adaptor. Now right click and select "bridge connections"

Take care!

IF you do NOT have DSL, "but I do not have DSL" (sic) then you must connect up to the internet, via a MODEM, the phone line connects to the Modem, the MODEM connects to the PC via Ethernet cable. Then you use the Connect to internet Wizard. You will need to enter your login and password, for your ISP, so you will be able to access the internet. You also must enter the ISP's PHONE Number to Dial up, FIRST, then you must enter your login, and password. Then you will connect up to your ISP, and be able to go onto the internet through them. That's it, really.

From a computer that has internet access, download the appropriate ethernet driver for your network card from the link above. As for the recovery disk, you'll have to contact Gateway for a replacement disk.

Getting on the internet


Plug an ethernet cable in and it should use DHCP (autoconfigure) to hook up if you have a broadband service... If you have Wifi then it depends on what Operating System you use ie Windows XP, Vista, Linux, OS X but it should scan for networks in the area and connect to which ever one you would like to use. Also if you have a dialup ISP you will need to plug the laptop modem to a phone line and dial out that way... The easiest way is to run the disc that your ISP gives you after everything is setup like in the directions.

Try this:
  1. Download Belarc Advisor (free) from their website (http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html)
  2. Run it on your Pavilion
  3. Note the device names for which you need drivers for (such as the video card may say 'NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS' - that's the card in my laptop)
  4. Search for the Windows XP driver on the device manufacturer's website (example, for NVIDIA drivers go to nvidia.com)
  5. If you cannot find the drivers on the manfacturer's website, try driverguide.com. Register for free to find the drivers you need.
Good luck and I hope this helped. : )

  5. If the driver does not come with an installer. Right click "My Computer" and select "Manage"
  6. In device manager right click network adapter or ethernet adapter and select "Update Driver" when asked for driver point the wizard to either the CD or USB drive you have the new drivers on.
