When you bought you pc, dident you installed the OS?
Today almost all pc:s have all programs in a separate partition on the disc, and when u start your new pc the first time you start whit the installation of the OS, beside the OS there are a lots of program who be instaled in the background. Some are good, some are just ****, but same programs follows every pc from Gateway.
If you pc where redy to just start and run i guess the store did the installation, not Gateway.
The store do that so the can use the pc as a demo-machine, nothing strange about that

Where can i download Network Controller


Go to the website of the computer's manufacturer to get the driver. After installing all the drivers, make sure that they are updated. Scan your computer with RadarSync and install the updates.

I hope this helps!

Is this still under warranty? If not then you'll just need to buy another HDD (hard drive device) and connect that one where the old was. Re-install XP or Vista. Conact Gateway or go to the Gateway web site to see what was hardware was supported for your system.

HDD IDE/EIDE or SATA/SATA II
OS XP or Vista

After you find out the info just install the new HDD, and install the OS. I only recommend doing this since you can't even get into the Safe Mode. When everything is back up and running you can also re-attach the old drive to what is called Slave or CS (cable select) this is more automatic process. Then you'll be able to recover any data missing that you need that was on the older drive.
