    Need to know the model number. Quite possibly this system uses High Definition audio and needs more than just the audio driver.

I just had to fix an Dell Vostro that was downgraded from Vista to XP and had the same problem. Turns out the unidentified PCI driver was the modem, which also needed the High Definition extensions from Microsoft before the drivers would load properly.

Problem is you can't download the UAA extensions directly from Microsoft, they want you to send an e-mail request and blah-blah, they'll get back to you. Fortunately they are available elsewhere.

Read about kb888111.exe file from
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/888111/en-us

But download kb888111.exe here:

Then re-install the drivers for the High Definition Audio and Modem for your specific Gateway model (which you did not specify) and you should be good to go.

Yeah, post the model number. You can find this by downloading Belarc Advisor and running it, and it'll tell you in the first line under System Model.
You'll need the UAA driver and the audio driver..

RELOAD PROBLEMS


I'm not sure why they do the things they do, but they don't seem to put all the drivers on their restore disc. Here's what you should do. Since your old hard drive is still good, purchase a usb to ide/sata cable, ide or sata depending on which your hard drive is. This will allow you to hook up your old hard drive to your computer as a slave drive. This is going to help you in two ways 1- the drivers for your machine are still on that drive and you can have the hardware wizard find them there, and 2- you can use the old drive for storage, backup, or whatever.
