If you are already running Vista, then no, you will have no problems installing servive packs. If you are not running Vista, then run the compatability wizard at microsoft.com.

I think if you try to install vista you should be fine. just check the system requirements for vista to make sure your computer can handle it. If you have any special hardware devices then you might want to find any drivers for it and have them on hand just in case

Gateway mx 6421 win764 driver issues


You could, drivers are based on manufacture. Like Realtek is a common maker of audio chips, and sometimes distributors use a popular motherboard.
You may have plateaued at Vista, by try the Troubleshooting Compatibility with Vista 64 drivers before you roll it back.

BTW - This happened to me with Win 8.

Hello !

1. I have some solutions for you i hope.
Below is a link to a support page on gateway but you have to find your model nr to be sure its the right driver.

2. Below is a link to page for buying restore-disk for gateway

http://restore-disk.com/restoredisks/Gateway/GatewayMX6424/Gateway-MX6424-Vista-Restore-Disk-145022.html

3. On this page you need to be a member if you want that driver.The problem today is that we all have to pay for every driver when we need them for our computers and stuff.

if none of this will work the best thing is to maybe install windows xp instead.

Good Luck and

Computer will lock up after sitting idle for short period of time


This type of problem is usually a device driver conflict in my experience. Try updating drivers in your machine and see if it runs. If you can find your updated drivers quickly and load them, you might solve the problem without a lot of effort. Pay special attention to the video card driver because they are often a problem, particularly old drivers. Plan B is more time consuming. Detailed troubleshooting requires you to start the computer in "safe" and slowly add the drivers back in until you find the one causing all the trouble. Then you must either disable the driver or update it. You can also start disconnecting components (CD, DVD etc) and see if you can get you computer to run normally. Identifying components and associated drivers might solve the problem too. Hope this helps.

It appears that you are using Windows 98 as your operating system, if this is the case it is not compatible with the newer Ipod software. The new Ipod's require at least Windows XP service pack 2, Vista, or newest Mac software. Here is a link to Apple's website so you can check the system requirements in the support section. http://www.apple.com/support/
