My Gateway mt3418 has dead video card what is solution?

Typically, installing a video card will have to be done by the manufacturer. Finding this type of part, especially from Gateway, will be very difficult. Installing the part will be even harder.

Getting this fixed may be more than the actual laptop is worth.

Contact Gateway for pricing.

I have both Operating ssytems. If your happy with XP stay with it. Vista has big changes and so does Windows 7. Your computer has to have a duo core processor which I think yours does not have. If it does it will state that on the bottom label. If not XP is your only choise of programming

Try updating Win 7. Go to Programs and find Windows Update.

Microsoft might be able to provide the drivers automatically.

Afterwards visit

I downgraded my vista to xp 32bit and now im figuring out that my gateway m-7351u doesnt suppport xp and I dont really want to go back to vista. What should I do? How can I get my sound working on xp.

Hi There,

Go to this thread. Alot of people worked hard to put it together. I believe the Audio Driver a ways down the page highlighted in red will work on your machine.

I spent a long time tracking this down for you so NO "unhelpful" marks, please.
