The two drivers you are looking for are the modem and the soundcard : the modem is a motorola sm56 smartlink look it up on the gateway website, the soundcard you are looking for is the realtek 97 it is also on the gateway website under all downloads I had to try several unzip then burn them to a cd as I did the modems placing them in different folders so as not to confuse like components then use device manager to update drivers and all is working fine now. You donot have a conexant modem as it states under your downloads

I just bought a gateway laptop, and b4 i got it, the person had wiped out everything. oes this mean i need a disk to reinstall the windows?


It would be best to re-install Windows so you have a clean system.
There is a Windows label on the bottom of the laptopm it showa the Windows version that was installed in this laptop and the product installation code.
You can borrow a Windows installation CD that matches the Windows label from a friend to install Windows on your laptop.
After installing Windows you need to the Gateway laptop's device drivers.
You can download the device drivers for your model Gateway laptop from this WEB site. Make sure you select your model laptop and the correct Windows drivers. Click on this link to download the drivers: -

Gateway 7405gx laptop will not load windows .goes to log on screen for user . click user and loads and then shuts down saving settings. tryied in safe mode and does same thing.


There is problem on the user account, or the hard drive. Try login as administrator. If the problem still occurs you need to reformat your laptop or try the recovery disk or option of your laptop. Or try changing the hard drive. But still, you need to re-install or try the recovery option or the disk.

There is no such thing as a BIOS virus. However, there are such things are boot sector viruses. Before you reinstall XP again, wipe the hard drive completely by deleting and recreating the primary partition.

You need to go into the BIOS and change the SATA type to IDE and not AHCI. I had this same problem on my laptop. Once I switched it to IDE it installed XP no problem. I don't know if Vista or 7 work with it set to IDE mode.
