Upgraded windows 7 from windows xp pro on gateway profile 5.5, but cannot change resolution. All icons are huge.

First of all Un-installed/format it your system and re-installed windows 7 and see it happen again or not? May be, while upgrading your windows XP to windows 7 some file may be left over so while running your OS (operating system) file cannot read properly.

thanks for using FixYa Good luck

I am working on a friends Gateway GT 5654 with a HT2000 motherboard. I believe it is an ECS board. He does not want Vista on it. He would like Windows XP Pro installed. Will I be able to run XP Pro and...¶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.

No driver after reboot

Alas, driver to what. It always helps to state device, brand, model, operating system in a query.

Here is some information. No way for me to narrow it to the relevant device. Don't know what that is!

Some versions of Windows 7 have an XP Mode. The driver that ran perfectly under XP may do so there. That Windows 7 Home Premium is 64 bit may be a factor if the vanishing driver ran under a 32 bit XP system.

Windows xp on Gateway MT6723 laptop

Are you trying to install Windows XP on your laptop that has a SATA drive in the laptop?
And during the Windows XP install it cannot find a hard drive?
The reason why Windows install does not work is because Windows XP does not have a SATA driver support and therefore cannot find the hard disk.
Go into your BIOS and turn off Native SATA support or set it to IDE controller (this setting depends on the type of BIOS). Save the setting and reboot and you will be able to install Windows XP.

My sony laptop with windows xp home media center keeps rebooting

When XP gets into the rebooting mode, you will have to run a chkdsk or do an XP repair. You will not lose your data. But you do need your recovery cd or a WinXP cd.

Take the Windows XP disk. Boot from it, then DO NOT select F2 (automated system recovery) but continue through the procedure until you get to the point where you can choose between installing Windows XP and entering the Recovery Console. Once you get into the Recovery Console, do chkdsk and fix potential errors on your disks! Type chkdsk C: /R at the prompt in the recovery console.

XP repair
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your Applications or data; it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.
Lastly, your drive can be taken out of the unit and set into an enclosure or adapter. The data can be saved, the your hard drive can be formatted and programs and data reinstalled.
Good Luck,
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
