Question about PC Laptops

1 Answer

I'm looking for Windows XP drivers for my Gateway M-2610H laptop.

I recently bought a Gateway M-2610H laptop. It's a great laptop, but I'm not a big fan of Vista (I've had to work with it too much at work and still prefer XP).

I'm currently Dual booting it with Ubuntu Linux and Windows Vista. I'd prefer to swap Vista out for XP, but I'm not having a lot of luck finding the drivers. I've been able to find the video and wireless drivers, beyond that I can only find Vista versions.

If anyone has any tips or ideas for finding the XP drivers that would be great. Thanks.

Bought a Gateway Netbook LT25 loaded with Windows XP. Was told by the salesman that I could upgrade to Windows 7, so I bought the software. Somehow, I screwed up the directions & ended up with Windows...


Try updating Win 7. Go to Programs and find Windows Update.

Microsoft might be able to provide the drivers automatically.

Afterwards visit www.intel.com/support/detect.htm

And run their auto detect tool. It works best if you run in Internet Explorer ;)

If you're still missing stuff, let me know and I'll help you track down what's left.

Hello I'm looking for a sound driver for a Gateway MT3419 for Windows XP...this laptop came originally installed with Vista so I understand how tough it can be to find the drivers for a downgrade.


Try to download the driver from this link. It's the latest official Vista drivers but at many many cases works great on XP too. In case that Windows prompt you that it's not verified e.t.c. accept it and continue the installation. At the end of the installation reboot the system.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Sometimes the device driver gets uninstalled for several reasons.Go online to "Windows Update " and let "Windows Update install a new driver.
If "Windows Update" does'nt fix it, the give me your computer model number, and I'll get the driver for you.
