I had a new repalcement hard drive put on my gateway 500 xl after the original crashed. Now I don't have any sound. I realize the drivers for the original hd probably will not work. What do Ineed to do to get sound short of taking it back to the people that fixed the crash problem?

When you went to the Gateway website and downloaded drivers, did you notice that under drivers there was nothing for the webcam? Use this link and download the webcam application under Applications tab. The driver is included in the application.

Need to unlock gateway 7330GZ hdd


So who put the password on it? 99% of the time if there is a Hard Drive Password and the person in possession of the laptop don't know the password, the laptop is stolen. The original owner put the password lock on the hard drive to keep thieves from getting to sensitive data. The owner could have set the password remotely once the laptop was stolen. Your system is toast. The only remedy is to get the original owner to remove the password.

Installed new hard drive (old one crashed) no sound now


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.

Try copying the driver files (install and otherwise) to a USB flash stick. Put it into a usb port, turn computer on. You should then be able to access the files throughout the installation.

The new hard drive should be set to master drive, if not just make sure the jumper is in the master slot. A small diagram should be on the hard drive. Then make sure you connect the hard drive to the end ribbon cable connector.

Hard drive not working properly


What is the original OS? If it's XP you can't install 98 over the top of it without formatting it to FAT32 first.
