Question about Gateway 7330GZ Notebook
I tried downloading the hard drives. It won't let me download the basic devices such as controller because they say that they aren't installed. I can't get the internet to connect because it won't give give me an IP address.
Go to start menu, then control panel, the performance and maintenance, then system, the find device manager, You can expand the lists here which should have all your devices on it. From here you can download drivers, change settings, check to see if devices are enable and working properly or not.
If you can get an ip address, go to start menu, go to "run" type ipconfig release, then ipconfig renew and it should issue you a new ip address.

Tips for a great answer:
can you see your wd passport in windows explorer ?
you might check all power and data leads that are attached from your wd passport to your computer make sure they are not faulty
First, please disconnect all USB devices and then perform the following steps:
Click "Start" button, type "devmgmt.msc" (without quotation marks) in the "Search" bar and press "Enter". Click "Continue" if necessary.
In Device Manager, double click to expand "Universal Serial Bus controllers", right click on the Host Controller, click "Uninstall" and click "OK".
Repeat the step 2 to uninstall all items under "Universal Serial Bus controllers".
Then, restart your computer and Windows 7 will reinstall all USB controllers automatically.
If the hard drive that has failed is the same one that you are trying to recover from might the reason that you are getting this error.
This could be an issue where the part of the hard drive you are trying to access is corrupt and not accessible which would explain the reason that it would let you access the other partition.
Now I have seen cases where Malware can break the link of a Hard Drive.
So let's try a couple of steps.
Let's go back in to "Disk Management"
Lets right click on the partition that you are not able to access and select "Change Drive Letter and Paths"
Now try selecting a new Drive Letter.
This will restore the path if it has been broken.
There are also Data Recovery programs that might be very helpful to recover your important information.
Some addition links found on Google
hope this helps
