If you trust what you install, try to disable your anti virus for a minute and install. usually anti virus detected some programs as virus if the manufacturer are not on their manufacturers database list.

thanks

SOURCE: Gateway laptop won't play media or detect usb/cameras/dvds

Click on Start>Right-Click My Computer>Click on Properties>Click on Hardware Tab>Device Manager. You will see a list of all of your hardware devices. Look for DVD/CD controller and click on the "+" sign to show the make and model of your DVD adapter. Right click on it and click on Troubleshooting. While you are there click on "Update Drivers" also, see if there is a new driver. Try doing the same thing for Video and Sound. Let me know how it turns out.

SOURCE: installing anti virus onto aspire one net book

Hi, the Acer Aspire is a Linux operating system based computer. It does not run Microsoft windows in the same way that Apple computers run OSX, not windows. The antivirus programs you mention are for windows computers. On the bright side, running Linux you really DON'T need virus protection Linux is inherently far more secure than windows.

SOURCE: Gateway 450rog Audio problem

I have just re-imaged a Gateway 450 ROG for a friend of mine on the website the audio driver is found (http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/search.asp?st=pn&param=3501353) under the heading Sound Downloads. This unzips a list of files C:\cabs\9520522
Readme.txt
stac97(security catalog)
stac97(control panel extension)
stac97 (setup information)
stac97(system file)
1. From the Start menu, click Control Panel.
2. In Control Panel, click Performance and Maintenance.
3. In Performance and Maintenance, click the System icon.
4. In the System Properties dialog box, click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager.
5. In Device Manager, click the plus sign (+) next to Other Devices, and then double-click Multimedia Audio Controller.
6. In the Multimedia Audio Controller Properties dialog box, click the Driver tab, and then click Update Driver.
7. In the Hardware Update Wizard dialog box, click Install from a list or specific location (Advanced), and then click Next.
8. In the next dialog box, click Search for the best driver in these locations, and then click Include this location in the search.
9. In the text box, type: C:\CABS\9520522. Click Next.
10. Click Finish.
Now once installed sound only comes from using the headphone jack, the external speakers get a little sound if the volume is turned up to maximum.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: sata hard drive installed.. but windows setup wont detected it.

Assuming you are trying to install xp on a vista machine, you need to go into the bios and either turn off the ahci function or select IDE as the function (each manufacturer may vary slightly as to the verbage).

Lost audio device


If AVG really have deleted your audio driver, all you need to do is to re-install the audio driver again from your motherboard CD/DVD. It should solve your problem.

If you have lost your motherboard CD/DVD, you should visit your motherboard manufacturer's website and download the audio and other necessary drivers compatible to your motherboard model.


And, one thing again, you must run a full-computer scan before you install anything again. As AVG has detected a virus and it was in your audio driver, there may be a possibility that viruses have spread throughout your system files.


Hope this helps, Mrityunjay.

Downloading Problem with Motorola SBG900 Wireless Cable Modem Gateway


Sounds like your laptop is hit with spyware and or viruses. Try starting it in safe mode (F8) and seeing if you still have this problem. If it works in safe mode go to grisoft.com and download the antimalware free trial. Restart in normal mode and install and run the trial version.
