Need keyboard hotkey drivers for Gateway 7210GX

I had to replace the hard drive after a crash. I managed to get everything installed and working. The only thing I am missing is the driver for the hotkeys on the keyboard (ie. volume buttons, etc.). Gateway's website is useless in finding this information. The application has to be out there somewhere. Anyone have it or know of a link? I'm all Googled out....

    OS is Windows XP. The laptop is at work, so I don't have the s/n on hand. It is a Gateway 7210GX. I have already tried Gateway's site... there's nothing there.

    I've tried that actually. I get alot of fake driver offers, most ending up with trying to get me to download Driver Detective or some other software. A direct link would be great if someone has had the same issue as me....

    Yes, I installed "9533116.exe - Gateway AMD Chipset Driver Version: 5.10.1000.4".

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.

Gateway 7210gx no sound

You either have installed the incorrect driver or you have a faulty audio device.
Check the Device Manager, if there is a yellow ? against the audio device then the driver for that device wasn't installed.
Make sure you download the XP or Vista version of the audio driver for the Windows version that is installed on your laptop.

Gateway disk drive issue

If you mean by drive the hard drive, any 2.5" laptop hard drive will work. It must be ATA for this model. is the best place to find computer parts for a good price. I just purchased a seagate 120gb laptop hard drive for this same model computer.

I have a gateway 7210gx. the hard drive needed to be replaced and now with a new hard drive installed and the restore disk in the DVD drive, when I start it up it says "no hard drive found" and cycles...

Check the connections to your hard drive and make sure the sata and power cables are fully connected. Then listen for the spinning sound. If your hard drive is not spinning it may be bad, or it could be an issue with your connectors, either way i would contact gateway for further support as it should be looked at.

Need a driver that is campatible

download a program that ID's video chips. Sometimes you cant tell what you have until you use this type of program, especially with a trident or S3 video card.
