I had a hard drive crash and had to do a from scratch install of XP Pro. Installed drivers and later when installing iTunes it gave a warning that my sound system was not working. Upon several attempts to reinstall Realtek hd now the system does not find the built in sound device. I have disabled the Windows UAA Bus driver as per the fix listed on the ASRock web site. Software shows to install but when you look in control panel at sound it says no device present.

Swapping the hard drive from the Dell into the Gateway will not work because the Dell hard drive has been installed with Dell specific drivers and configurations. When you install the Dell hard drive into the Gateway you need to wipe the hard drive and install a fresh copy Windows XP onto this hard drive and the Gateway device drivers etc.
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.
The super-cheapie models use Realtek AC97 2-channel drivers, while the multi channels use Realtex HD drivers. You can go direct to Realtek's website (google "realtek drivers" and go to their website.
Control Panel / System / hit the "hardware" tab, device manager, scroll down to "sound video and game controllers" hit the plus sign to the left, and your audio devices should be listed. The one with the yellow sign of doom is the problem device, and the name of the device is the one you want from Realtek.
Rather than let Windows search for it, I'd rather take it from Realtek, and run the install. Afterwards, burn it to a CD for use when you upgrade, or reinstall your OS.
That will happen sooner or later, so best be prepared.
i think the only problem you encounter is about the sound driver. Because the other driver is plug and play for the other devices. Open the link below and download the realtek audio driver. Good luck.... http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/
