If your pc is new the problem is in the drivers boot your pc in bios if your does not have a keyboard error it is the vista drivers got to the keyboard manufacturers site and check for drivers, also when installing xp you must use the pro version for some new pcs to funtion correctly when downgrading from vista to xp

Gateway dx4300-11 won't power on after put in


Is the Gateway DX4300 having problems while installing the drivers after sleep mode
or does it have these problems during the laptop is turned on.
Always make sure you download the right drivers for your system.
If you installed Windows Vista after you had formatted the system and now your trying
to install them you might want to go on another system and download all of the drivers either on an external hard drive or an SD card so everything can be accessible.
After you install Windows Vista or 7 make sure that the compatibility mode is selected while installing the drivers.
Most of Gateway drivers are Windows XP so you have to go and right click on each and every driver and change the compatibility mode to Windows XP SP2 that way when you let it install then Windows Update will activate to perform updates for hardware drivers and software applications. It will also get the KB updates for your computer.
This will probably fix the sleep mode and improve it too.

1. Go on Gateway's site
2. Download the DX4300-11 drivers and make sure its directly from
Gateway on a SD card or external hard drive.
3. Change the compatibility mode to Windows XP SP2
and let it run as administrator.
Each driver will then install and then you will fully use
your computer's capability.
After the drivers are installed then change your power options
as it will continue to install your drivers.
Check to make sure that your battery is fully charged and is plugged in
if it is. If not plug in for charging the battery.
If all fails then you will need to replace the motherboard.

Is it possible to move Vista from one computer to another without the disc? I have a product key for the Vista that was installed. The original OS was XP and Vista was purchased and installed. I got this...


It can be done if:
1) the i386 directory was installed on the first PC
2) the first machine is being scrapped (must happen or you violate the Microsoft EULA)
3) you can burn a copy of the Vista i386 directory

There are additional things to do to complete the process, but the answers to the above will determine if it can be done.

Hi,

Your computer Gateway GM5632e was designed for Windows XP and Vista. You may be successful installing Windows 7 Ultimate on this computer but you will have difficulties finding the right driver for the TV Tuner which was developed and manufactured by Gateway themselves. As always, drivers and sofrwares are limited from the manufacturers release. On the other hand, Windows Vista 64bit has having some issues with its updates. Windows Vista 32bit version can only work if your installer has service pack 1 with it. I suggest, have Windows XP install on your computer as it is stable comparable to the performance of Windows 7. It may not look like Window 7 but surely, Windows XP can still maximize your computer's capability.


I hope this works for you. Kindly reply/comment for further assistance. Good Luck!


Thanks for using Fixya!

Did you install from the Gateway-modified version of the Microsoft Windows CD-ROM, or from a "generic" Microsoft Windows XP disk?

If the latter, then your computer is missing the "device-drivers" for some of the Gateway hardware, namely the wireless adapter, and the M.S.C.

So, access Gateway's web-site, enter your model-name and model-number, and look for "downloads" for Windows (XP? Vista?) for your computer.
Download and install the selected device-drivers, to add support for those devices.

Gateway SK-9922 Keyboard fastkeys don't work


You have a problem with your drivers. That keyboard is too old and I can not find any vista drivers. I can find XP and Windows 2000 drivers. The regular keys should work, but the extra keys that are not standard on all keyboards, like the cut, paste, and volume controls should not work.

If you want a keyboard to have those functions, then you need to buy a newer keyboard that has vista drivers.
