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 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.

Cannot connect to DLink DIR-655


The part below is all you need to look at, the rest is Ethernet which is your wired connection, ethernet card.

Here is what are causing your problems from what you gave me and basically your computer is not communicating with the router:

1)I don't see any IP address for your laptop so you can't get on the internet if you don't have an IP address, also, I don't see any gateway address. The gateway address is your router address, and that address is given to the router automatically from your Internet Service Provider.

So if your computer cannot see the gateway address then the gateway address (router) cannot give you an IP address to get on the Internet.
Your Wireless card looks ok, that is the physical address and if you were able to do the loopback then its working.

So on your laptop I would begin from the beginning. Go into network connections and delete the DLink connection if it is there. Then Start>control panel>Network connections>click wireless network connection>click change settings of the connection on the left window>click wireless network tab>make sure checkmark"use windows to configure my wireless network settings>click add a new network>TYPE IN THE SSID FOR THE NETWORK>ENTER WEP/WPA KEY>CLICK OK, then close and you should be connected.

You said other computers are able to access the internet thru the DLINK so it all points to your laptop not being configured correctly.

HOWEVER :)...I see alot of "Media disconnected in your list. Make sure all of the lights are working on the front of the router, if not check the cabling or call the ISP sometimes the problem is on their end. Hope this helps, keep me updated.
