All you need is a Windows Vista 32 or 64bit, depending on your processor, Installation DVD. Place the Installation DVD in the DVD/CD rom and reboot form the DVD/CD rom. Follow instructions.

check that you have all updates for your linksys and cable modem and the new adapter you bought since your pc is old..
if that doesn't help then try the following:

i would shut down pc, uplug router power, turn off the cable modem and give it all at least 10-20 secs.. plug the other pc in the router then start up cable modem and router.. after that, then turn your pc on and see if it recognizes...

is the adapter for a desktop to make wireless of a laptop, just curious..

SOURCE: optical drive not working

Hi there.

To resolve this, all you should need to do, is download and install the chipset and/or cd/dvd drivers for your laptop.

You can get them from here:
http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/ddaStep.asp?platform=10022&st=browse

Just select your model and operating system, download and install.

Hope that helps.

SOURCE: Trying to install vista 32 bit on my Gateway DX

Vista will have the drivers necessary to identify SATA/AHCI controllers, built-in by default. It would not be necessary to turn the AHCI mode 'off' or to 'ATA' mode (unless you get a 7B or inaccessible boot device BSOD). Check if your system has a RAID configuration, in which case there may be a 3rd party supplied RAID driver that you need to install first. Also, check if the HDD cables are connected properly & the HDD is detected in the BIOS (System setup screen) first.

    I want to install windows 7 on this computer. How do I get to a legacy BIOS? I have a Gateway SX2110G Serial Number: 25203457292


    The spec of your computer should be able to take Win 7 without the hassle of trying to find a "Legacy BIOS" the only way to find one of those is to find an older motherboard of the same spec and use the BIOS chip from there. Or Flash your BIOS with an older image.

    Hi, im trying to install windows 7 ultimate onto my gateway. I bought it retail from best buy and am having problem with the install... is it factory set for me not to be able to install an operating...


    If you bought a full retail version and not an upgrade, you may need to do a fresh installation of windows. You also need to make certain that your gateway model is able to upgrade to windows 7. Checking your computer's support page, there are no BIOS updates available. Your computer should be fully capable of upgrading to windows 7 from windows Vista. ALso looking at Gateway's support page for this model, there are no drivers offered for Windows 7. All drivers offered are for windows Vista. I have seen computers in the past that will not tolerate an operating system change from the system that was installed at the factory.

    If you have a restore partition, you can back up your data, and do a clean install of windows after formatting your hard drive. You may also want to make recovery disks for your computer in case the Win 7 will take on your computer or you cannot get your hardware to work with Win 7 since Gateway offers no Win 7 drivers.
    Good luck. Take precautions to back up data and be able to revert to your original factory settings if necessary.

    Hi..i have HP pavilion dv5 laptop with preloaded Windows Vista. i want to istall windows xp instead of vista. i tried installing it using xp bootable disc. but after loading the required installation files...


    its very simple....
    enter the bios setting...The BIOS settings menu is accessible by pressing the f2 or f10 or the f6 key on some computers.
    if the BIOS provides an option to disable the native-SATA configuration in the BIOS, do the following steps to Disable the native-SATA in the BIOS

    1. Use the cursor to navigate the Configuration options to locate the Native-SATA setting. 2. If there is a SATA setting, select the Disable option, and then press F10 to save the change and restart the computer.

    if your system bios does not contain such option.... then find "Native SATA mode" or "SATA IDE"
    then change "AHCI" to "ATA"
    then press F10 to save the change and restart the computer.

    Xp installation problem


    “No Hard Disk” error displayed on XP install (SATA drive versus ATA/IDE drive) The two most most popular types of hard drives in personal computers are ATA (also known as IDE hard drive) and SATA hard drives. Many newer computers have SATA hard drives installed, but your computer may have either an (older design) ATA/IDE hard drive or a (newer design) SATA hard drive installed.
    After removing Vista, when you reboot your computer, a “No Hard Disk” error may be displayed if your computer has a SATA drive installed. To fix the “No Hard Disk” error, you may need configure your computer’s BIOS settings so that it can recognize the SATA drive installed in you computer. Reconfiguring your BIOS is typically not required if your computer has an ATA/IDE hard drives installed.

    Step 1: Activate your computer’s BIOS menu. The first or second screen your computer displays on status may display which key (or keys) you must press to activate your computer’s BIOS menu. You can also look in the index of your computer’s manual for “BIOS” or you can try passing the [Del] or [F1] key when text is first displayed after powering on your computer.

    Step 2: BIOS menus vary by computer, but there are seldom more than a few menu categories. Review the “Main” and “Advanced” menu categories to locate your hard drive setting. When you locate the hard drive setting, be sure to note the original drive setting in the bios so that you can restore the original drive setting if your new configuration doesn’t work.

    Step 3: Change the drive setting to “IDE,” then save the BIOS settings (usually by pressing the [F10] function key then restart your computer.
    If changing your BIOS hard drive setting to IDE doesn’t work, return to step one and restore the original hard drive setting

    When my gateway MT6705 tries to boot, blue screen


    Many times this error occurs when I have swapped a hard drive and used the wrong IDE cable to connect it. If your computer uses an Ultra Direct Memory Access (UDMA) hard disk controller, and you use a standard 40-wire connector cable to connect the UDMA drive, you may experience this error. Make sure you are using the correct IDE cable.

    Also, if your BIOS settings are configured to force the faster UDMA modes, this error may occur. In this situation, restart your computer and enter the BIOS and load the "fail-safe" default settings and reboot.

    If neither of these issues are the cause for the Unmountable Boot Volume, then the issue most likely is caused by a damaged BOOT.INI file in the root directory of the boot drive or file system corruption.

    Follow the steps below to correct these file system issues:

    1) Start your computer with your Windows XP CD-ROM, or with Windows XP boot disks
    2) When the Welcome to Setup screen appears, press R to Repair the installation using the Recovery Console
    3) If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the Windows installation you want to access
    4) Type the administrator password when you are prompted, if no administrator password is set then just press Enter
    5) At the command prompt, type CHKDSK /R and then press Enter
    6) Once CHKDSK has finished checking and repairing the hard drive, type EXIT and press Enter to restart your computer
