Gateway FX 400S Will not install Ethernet or SM Bus Control

Hi, I recently got a new hard drive and installed windows. When it starts installing the drivers for the found new hardware everything installed except for the ethernet and sm bus controller. I've went to gateway, put in my model and serial number and downloaded the drivers for both but still no luck after installing.

Like always Thank You in advance because I know you;ll solve my problem.

Thank You

Download freeware program like cpuid, this will determine the actual parts manufacturer for the motherboard, then download drivers from that companies site instead of from gateway.

How much should installing I tunes on a new gateway FX model slow downloads from other links?


If the resources for the machine are a quad core processor with 6 gigs of memory and a 640 gig hard drive, then not at all. Are you running Windows Vista 64bit edition? Ive had issues with itunes running properly under this OS. Grab the latest copy from Apple's website (make sure you uninstall the old copy first, do not install the new copy on top of the old one). Check for any Windows updates and install them before installing the new itunes.
