    before buying the XP disk, check with the manufacturer if the BIOS will support WinXP. I recently purchased a Compaq c700 display item at Best Buy and when I asked the tech if I could load XP on it, he said the BIOS was written specifically for Vista and will not run XP.

    Just something to doublecheck before investing the $100+ for XP.

    Your computer came loaded with Vista correct? Now you want to downgrade to Windows XP correct?
    If this is what you want, then you have to BUY a Windows XP Disk to install XP.
    XP is not a Driver, It is an operating system. If you have Vista installed, a XP driver will not work.
    Please ask your question like one of these if I am correct.

If the drivers are not on the Gateway website it is because they do not have the drivers. Evidently the hardware in your laptop is so new that there never was any XP drivers for the hardware. Some hardware people can't afford to make drivers for everything. This makes things cheaper in cost for you. I have seen this a lot in the past year. It has nothing to do with the BIOS. You will be wasting money to buy the XP disk.

From what I can gather your problem is not that you are looking for the XP operating System but instead you are looking for the drivers for your hardware that are compatible with you XP operating system. well most times the driver disk that comes with your laptop will have drivers for both XP and Vista but if it does not then you will have to download the appropriate drivers from the manufactures website. If its acer then the site will be acer.com.

I want to have xp on my vista gateway laptop


Hello, Its really hard to downgrade from vista to XP on dell laptops. vista and XP use completely different drivers and dell has stopped writing drivers for XP. But still you can downgrade. You need to setup external SATA harddrive from where your XP CD should boot as it wont boot from your current harddrive that has vista. Even if you set these up and downgrade, Since dell has stopped writing drivers your new XP will not work with many new softwares and applications as you wont have drivers for them. I would advice you to use Vista. Good luck, Please rate the solution. ~regards, Jegan
