Question about Gateway BCM94306MP Network Adapter

Hi! I have a Desktop GT-4023E. After having problems (cursor didn't move) I had to wipe out Windows XP and install it again. After that I cannot connect to the Internet because the computer cannot detect the modem( a provider checked the modem, it's working fine), but there is no Local Area Connection installed under Network Adapters. Pls advice.

Click on the link that i have provided below and download the Modem driver for XP. (you may need to transfer the file to a USB drive if you are using a different computer and then plug it in to the other Gateway PC) Make sure you have the cable connected to the computer and to the modem/router and double left click on the file once its transfered to the Gateway to install it. You should then be able to connect to the internet once its installed. Link below here >>>>>

Kind regards and please post back if there is anything else.

Hi. reinstalling the OS (windows Xp) will wipe out the drivers on your computer and that is why computer did not recognized your LAN adapter. Re-installing the driver will resolved the issue. Your LAN driver usually came with the system when you purchased it. It is in the application/driver CD. check the CD's that came with the system.

When ever i move my curser on the screen the the scroll button comes on how can i get rid of it

Troubleshooting a mouse that scrolls up and down uncontrollably depends on various factors. Possibilities extend from the class of surface to hardware problems or configurations.


A variety of laptop mice exist.

A mechanical mouse uses a hard rubber ball that rolls with any movement of the mouse.

An optical mouse uses an LED sensor to detect movement.

An infrared, cordless mouse requires and relays a signal to the mouse port found on the laptop.

The base of the trackball mouse remains stationary, while the trackball sitting on top of this mouse reflects all movement.


A mouse depicts a device that controls the movement of the cursor or pointer on a monitor or display.


Several reasons exist for a cursor to uncontrollably scroll up and down on a display.

Static electricity often initiates wild cursor reactions.

To solve this, use pre-moistened computer cleaning wipes to help control static electricity and clean electronic surfaces.

Bad batteries can trigger impromptu cursor movements in a wireless mouse.

Electrical interferences can also produce the scrolling effect. Radio, wireless or electrical objects may require removal from close proximity.

The mouse needs to stay in range of the receiver, meaning near the Laptop

I have found that the best way to adjust your mouse settings is to create a control panel in your bottom toolbar scroll to the bottom of your screen right click you will see an array of options select the toolbar option then select desktop

then you will see the desktop in the bottom toolbar select the 2 >>arrow heads then all control panel items then select mouse this is in WINDOWS 7

in XP you will have to select the new toolbar option once you have that a browse option select my computer then control panel then a control panel option will be in the bottom toolbar

click start right click on my computer select properties device manager control scroll to mice and pointing devices you might see a yellow question mark? right update driver

click on >> control panel all control panel items mouse you should see 4 tabs buttons pointers pointer options and hardware under hardware you have options to troubleshoot also you can select properties under driver you will have the options update driver rollback driver or uninstall in xp

in windows 7 click start control panel hardware and sound mouse you will see the same tabs and options as with xp

hope this helps

I upgraded windows from service pak 2 to service pak 3 then my windows encountered a problem what shall i do?

You can remove the service pack by click Start -- > Control Panel -- > Add/remove programs. If not, use the backup disc you created upon installing windows. If you didn't create or don't have one, use the original install disc.

Hello, Both of my machines were infected with the windows xp recovery virus. I managed to remove the virus manually. Now my desktop icons are hidden as well as a majority of programs, i.e. windows office...


DELL has a awesome feature most of the time.... they ship with a recovery disk where you can set back your PC to factory.

Now if its just the icons... go and make a right click on your desktop / Properties / Desktop / Customize Desktop >>> there you can check mark some of the default windows icons.

For the Windows office, it might have corrupted and might need to be installed again...

Other icons can be brought onto the desktop by Clicking on Start >> All Programs >> then right click on the program you want the short cut on your desktop and "Send to" >> Desktop (Create Shortcut)

I hope that helped

Explorer.exe is failing.

I had this problem before with my Windows Xp professional . in fact i could solve the problem only by making a new formatting to my computer . and i installed my Xp pro again .
If your Vista is not the original one , then you have to disable the Automatic updates to prevent this to happen again .
rate if useful please !

No operating system

Should be one of two things.
First: Make sure you remove the disk as Windows restarts as it may be on a continuous cycle even after Windows is done loading.
Second: You should check your hard disk for errors and have it repair any bad sectors. This is done by: Booting from XP and choose the Recovery console Once your in DOS (black screen
with a flashing cursor) type in the following commands exactly
" chkdsk /r "(this will check you hard disk for errors, it will take a
while depending on size of your hard disk). Then continue any additional disk repair options. If this all fails then the problem is with a bad hard drive and has to be replaced.
