I have a Gateway GT5228...I just had to do a fresh install of the OS and, using the original boot disc, it seems my integrated network unit didn't recieve the drivers.....im confused, and can't connect to the internet on that computer now. It's not the ISP, i've checked that.

You will need to open up your network connections click start control panel network connections this may vary depending on your operating system look for local area connection if you see a Red X or a yellow Exclamation or Question mark ! ? you will need to update or install the driver or it could be firewalled. If you are trying to connect through a modem/router the driver should have come with a disc provided by your ISP internet service provider or your motherboard disc click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to network adapters could see a yellow question / exclamation mark? ! or a red X right click install drivers Make sure you Ethernet/internet is enabled in bios Restart your computer during the boot up process you will see on your screen a certain key to press to enter set up (BIOS) usually the Delete or F2 key press and hold that key to enter bios using arrow keys scroll to intergrated peripherals. Look for SiS On Chip Pci Device press enter scroll to SiS 10/100m press ENTER make sure its enabledimake sure its enabledPci device arrows key scroll to nstalled. http://download.cnet.com/802-11b-g-atheros/3000-2112_4-162108.html wireless lan http://download.cnet.com/realtek-rtl-gigabit-and/3000-2112_4-10278840.html 2000/XP/XP 64-bit. http://download.cnet.com/3dp-net/3000-2112_4-10915115.html Provide integrated driver installer that supports many model of Ethernet card if these drivers are not right http://download.cnet.com/2000-20_4.html just type in what you want or need be specific you might have to try a few times to get it right IE: Motherboard name lan drivers. Place a tick in either windows software or the all software box. Hope this helps.
You are missing the drivers for the card reader. They usually come with the chipset driver installation. I looked up your driver downloads on gateway support and it says there is also a driver in the "others" section caller "motherboard driver"
So, what you want to do is go to there site at the link below and download the "chipset" driver and the "motherboard" driver and install them. that should fix your problem.
Is it an integrated card (the ethernet connection would be located on the back around the middle along with the USB connections that are built-in to the motherboard. If it is integrated, make sure it is enabled in the BIOS. Since it is not showing up in the Device Manager, it is disabled through the BIOS or it is not functioning. If it is an add-in card, try removing the card and reseating. If you still do not get an entry (possibly Unknown) in the device manager, it is time to replace the card.
if video card does have a hdmi-output, try this one plus fitting monitor. no sign? to blindtest the mainboard, remove the RAMs, if it gives bleeping sound, it is still functioning. when booting up, listen if the harddisk or cd-rom drive still makes any sound. if it is the video card, then computer might hang up here while booting, video device is always checked first, so if it gets stuck here, you won't be able to tell until you've doublechecked with another (AGP?)video-card, iam afraid...
Boot into safe mode and see if you can either roll back the driver restore the computer to the date right before you downloaded it.
the link is for directions on how to boot into safe mode.
Another option , if you have on board graphisc alos is to hook up the monitor to the onboard turn it on in BIOS and change the driver for the card using the onther graphics.
