You need to reinstall the driver right click my computer properties and hardware then device scroll and see if audio driver shows at all anything that has ? or ! click and update

If you don't have the correct audio driver on your recovery discs and can't find them on gateway's web site there's one other thing to do - make sure you are current with your windows updates. in most cases i've seen, driver updates for most devices will be included in these updates - i rely on it a lot of computers i work on, especially gateways since they are annoying to find drivers for.

hope this helps

My HP hard drive crashed,by virus. Was desperate and pulled my hard drive from Dell desktop that motherboard fried on. Of course non of product keys won't work from HP or Dell.Options?


restore the hp drive using the restore partition
restore the hp with the original disks if you have them
try to remove the viruses from hp drive
the dell drive would have all the drivers for everything on the dell
the product keys should work if you have the operating system on the sticker. download the windows version from microsoft on usb stick or burn dvd and reinstall it, if you don't have the disks

My Gateway DX300X desktop is super slow and only has 0.99 GB of RAM. How do I install more?


According to specs, your computer can use up to 4Gb of memory. You will need to open the case and see what is currently installed. You should have 4 memory slots and probably it came configured with 2 512Mb memory sticks. You could add 2 more sticks of 1Gb each bringing your total up to 3Gb, but my suggestion would be to remove the existing memory modules and install 4 matching 1Gb modules. You must use DDR2 PC2-5300, DDR2 (non-ECC) type memory and the best results will be achieved by using all matching modules.

Gateway dx300 hard drive


Gateway DX300 Desktop PC is a series.

Could be a Gateway DX300MC, or DX300QS, or DX300S, or DX300X,

http://support.gateway.com/support/supinfo/index.asp?pg=2&file=DX300series.html

Fortunately all models in the series use a SATA harddrive.

[ Gateway DX300X Desktop PC used as an example,

http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/DX300/1008555/1008555nv.shtml

In the list click on - Components
On this page scroll down to the bold subheading - Harddrives

All models came with a Western Digital harddrive, but it doesn't matter what the harddrive manufacturer is, that you use ]

What size in GB amount? Depends on what you want. I myself wouldn't go more than 320GB.
That is because your anti-virus program has to sift through the harddrive.

The larger the harddrive, the longer it takes.

For more capacity, I would install a 1TB harddrive into an external enclosure, and use it connected to the computer, with it's USB cable.
(It will also come with an additional external power supply)

But that is just me.

Bear in mind that a new harddrive has no Operating System on it.
You have to purchase a genuine copy of Windows, and install it.
(This is if your harddrive presently on that Gateway is bad)

[ Microsoft makes one Master disk. From it all GENUINE copies are made, and sold to the consumer ]

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.

I don't know how to open the media card reader on the top of my Gateway lx 6200-01. I've tried pressing down and it doesn't work. Can anyone help? Thanks!


Do you have your manual for the DX300X? If yes go to page 51.
Gateway suggest that you shut down the PC & un-plug the power cord. Than press & hold the power on button for a few seconds. This will drain the remaining power stored in the PC.
Stand in front of the PC so you are looking at the front of the case. It's the right side panel that you want to remove. There are two thumb screws you need to unscrew (they hold the side panel in place). Once removed there is a beval that bends outward in the middle of the side case panel. Grab it & pull it to you're right. Installing memory is shown on pg. 55.
Home page for you're DX300X listed below.
thanks

Dont have recovery disks and have virus...actually just missing disk 2


If the popup you're getting is from something like "MS Antispyware 2009" or similar, that's the same trouble I've seen on several other computers. Download a removal tool called ComboFix. You can find information on how to use it and links to download it here. This is a handy tool even if the virus you have is different as it will fix a number of virus and trojan problems. ComboFix can be run in safe mode if your computer can't start all the way into Windows. Turn your computer on, and when you see the Gateway logo screen press the F8 key. This will give you a startup menu screen from which you can pick starting in safe mode. This prevents Windows from loading everything except the minimum stuff it needs to start. Run ComboFix and let it repair the troubles it finds.

My computer keeps restarting why??


HI, your system has contracted a nasty virus that has destroyed a vital system 32 file that is needed for stability. You will have to preform a restoration to bring back stability and continuity. A good way to do this is to use the system restore disk that should have been delivered along with this unit. if you don't have this disk, you can use a Windows Xp install disk as well. be sure to wipe the partitions and reformat the drive to rid the system of this horrid virus attack.
