SOURCE: I have a Gateway E1600-SE with Windows 98 OEM

You will need a driver for your specific NIC (Network Interface Card) that will run on Windows 98 second edition (this is important. If you dont have 2nd edition, you will need to find it somewhere. I would suggest Craigs List or e-bay). Your Default adapter is unknown to me so I cannot send you to a manufacturer site. However, that information and driver should be available at www.gateway.com/support as well as the NIC manufacturer.

Don't know what the device is? Check your Device Manager in "My Computer" / properties - select device manager

Another avenue you can travel is go for a visit at www.pcpitstop.com and have a free test performed. Of course to do this, you have to have a NIC with the proper driver already! I mention this because after you get this NIC going, you can visit the site and they will tell you whether you have the most current driver for your system or not.

I hope I have helped you with your trouble this evening.

Thank you for considering FixYa.com

thanks

SOURCE: Problems loading OS in Gateway desktop

Normally installing the os on a different mechine, and then putting into another pc dosent work.

If the hardrive is the oringinal drive, which came with the system, and you want to install xp on, you will have to use a dos disk with fdisk on it, delete all partitions on the drive and create a new partition, then start loading windows, it will give you the option to format the drive for nt(ntfs) file system and setup windows.

If you do that and it still gives you protecting files error, you will have to take the side panel of the computer tower, unplug from the mains and take the cmos battery out for about 30 secs, put the battery back in, plug in the mains and reboot the computer, start loading windows again
Hope this helps and post back if you need further assistance.

http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/search.asp?st=pn¶m=1015001R This is a link to all of the drivers you need. You will need to reboot with Windows XP CD and install a fresh copy of Windows. Be sure to backup any files you want to keep, and you may want to download the driver files first in case the network card does not work (no driver), if you don't have another computer to download the files later.

I got a used laptop for my daughter for X-mas and it came with no disc. how do I make it like new ? It is a Gateway Centrino 450ROG


You can purchase recovery media directly from Gateway via this link:
https://secure.tx.acer.com/RCDB/Main.aspx?brand=gateway

Or if you just want to get downloads (drivers, presumably manuals and the like,) go here:

http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/dlcenter.asp?cmpid=topnav

I'd recommend having the recovery media handy no matter what, though.

Have problem with windows Xp pro.


You can get the correct drivers from the Gateway website. Use another computer and download all the Windows XP files for that model number from the website. You need your model number of your pc. Get the files for your motherboard, video, sound card, network card, etc. save them to a usb key or a burn them to a cd. Take the usb key/cd to the other system and load the drivers.

This will get your system back up and running in now time.

I hope this helps you.

I need to install drivers on an old HDD for an Asus K8V mobo.


Hi gordonal123, installing drivers through safe mode is not recommended. If you want windows to function correctly than do a fresh install of windows. Over writing the Gateway hdd will cause you more grief. Windows registry will go nuts.
Link to download the Asus K8V drivers.
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us
Here is what you need to do. Boot to your windows CD while using the Gateway system & hdd. Create a new partition within the free space of the Gateway hdd. (Follow windows onscreen instructions to create a new partition within the free space of hdd). (This will maintain the current windows function).
Restart windows when finished. Windows will create a second partition on the Gateway drive. Go to the Asus link above & download all the drivers for the K8V MB, onto the second partition of the Gateway hdd. Once downloaded & uncompressed into their own folders you can than boot to the windows CD & format the primary partition & install windows fresh onto the formatted partition. When finished you can install the K8V driver still located on the secondary partition. Copy & past these driver folders to your primary partition. Than use windows disk management software to erase / delete the secondary partition. (diskmgmt.msc).
When finished you'll have all the drivers for the K8V MB, no need to buy a PCI LAN card & more importantly a fully functioning windows with-out issues.

Good luck gordonal123!
Take your time.

Intel WM3B2100 802.11B wireless LAN card driver


    • If the Wireless LAN cards came pre-equipped with the laptops, then the drivers will be available for download straight from gateway's support site found here:
    • Enter your serial number on the back of the gateway, and it will direct you to the correct driver files you'll need.
    • If the wireless cards didn't come shipped with the laptop, you should be able to use the intel support site found here:
Either method should get you to a compatible driver :-)

Help me to install WinXP in a Gateway Laptop that came with SATA HDD


you have probably already fixed this but maybe others can find this a little helpful. i had to downgrade a gateway ma7 for one of my customers who had lost their recovery cd with vista on it. Their HD had gone bad.

The reason the XP installer says "no HD" is because the the drivers required by the gateways Sata controller (hd controller) are not preloaded on the xp install disc. The only way around this is to download the windows xp compatible sata drivers from gateways website and then slipstream them into a custon windows xp install cd. its actually not as difficult as it sounds. just download the sata driver, a slipstreaming program called nlite.

1 download and install nlite
2 put in your xp install cd, and run nlite, when nlite asks, browse to the i386 folder (your installation files)
3 you will have lots of options to choose from, but for this purpose, choose "add drivers" and select the location of the gateway drivers (c:\cabs\something) i think.
4 finish and burn the cd. then use it to install windows xp.

this little guide isnt step by step, but with a little trial and error you should get by
