    Is your Etherent Controller a PCI Card? If so, you may have nudged it just enough to have made it lost connection with one of the PCI Pins

I have a old gateway pc and I would like to install a Hard Drive from a Dell pc into it. Can it be done?


Swapping the hard drive from the Dell into the Gateway will not work because the Dell hard drive has been installed with Dell specific drivers and configurations.
When you install the Dell hard drive into the Gateway you need to wipe the hard drive and install a fresh copy Windows XP onto this hard drive and the Gateway device drivers etc.

Installed new hard drive (old one crashed) no sound now


You need another sound system. If it's xp it is probably ac 97. However; go to windows update, make sure you have all of the updates. Then go to the control panel, device manager and look for a yellow question mark or a yellow exclamation mark, if there, right click and click update driver or click uninstall from the system, restart the computer and windows will look for the drivers, just follow on screen directions.

My windows media center 2005, can't install media?


if you have the OS installed then that tells me you need the sound card drivers. Go to this page:

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&cs=2684&l=en&s=pub&ServiceTag=&SystemID=DIM_PNT_P4_8400&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

Choose your operating system, then go underneath where it says audio and choose the one that says driver.

Download it and then install it and you should have sound then.

Dell dimension 5150 ethernet problem reloaded windows xp home from a windows xp entertainment os. apear fine but not receiving.


Okay, so it seems you installed Microsoft Windows XP Home on a what was Media Center Edition installation, and the ethernet is no longer worker.
Please refer to dell.com's support section, enter your model, and download drivers that you need.
To find drivers you need, Go to start --> control panel and then go to (under classic view) system --> the hardware section, open up device manager, and then look for ones with a yellow big question mark, and get those drivers from dell's website. Burn these drivers to a CD on another computer, or use a USB flash drive if that does work.
Good luck.

Need new Ethernet drivers.


Without getting onto the internet, you're not going to be able to get the driver from them.

Your best bet is to get onto a computer at a friend's or library, and download the driver to a flash drive.

Once you get home, you can install it. In checking, Realtek appears to have all the current Vista compatible drivers available on their website.

If you know somebody that has the same operating system disc (Windows XP Media Center Edition) you can use their CD to reinstall Windows and just use your product code number on your PC box.

download freeware program like cpuid, this will determine the actual parts manufacturer for the motherboard, then download drivers from that companies site instead of from gateway.

Many issues few solutions


Sounds like you have a real mess there that you can lose a lot of time trying to solve. I'd suggest saving all your files to another drive, and then reinstall the OS and only allow the system to update through the Windows update manager/web site, which should be able to match up the right update files. Do all this patching of the OS without installing any other hardware devices to keep it clear where things go wrong. Once the OS is patched completely, install new hardware and patch it separately watching for the tell-tale incompatibilities with XP/MCE2005. Especially watch for legacy devices that might not have modern drivers.

Hope this helps - good luck...
