Question about Gateway GT5242E PC Desktop

1 Answer

Gateway GT5242E, used to have XP Pro but the HDD died. Replaced HDD and reinstalled XP Pro but can't find the ethernet driver. I understand that Gateway no longer supplies driver links directly so much as a driver detection program, which I can live with, but I need to get it online first. Can you help?

    Error message upon running the hardware vendor detection utility: HWVendorDetection.exe - Entry Point Not Found. The procedure entry point DecodePointer could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.DLL.

    I had tried that already but thank you for trying. I am my company's IT guy so I do not ask this question lightly; believe me, I've been looking around...
    Anything anybody can find would be appreciated.

    Didn't work but funny how I pull this rig off a shelf 2 days shy of one year later, only to address the same issue and randomly come across my own forum post. Nice.

    It says, "The procedure entry point DecodePointer could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll."

    Any ideas?
    If I can't get this computer running, the boss says to throw it away. I would really hate to throw away a PC based on one missing driver...

No sound after reinstallation of os for my gateway gt5242e pc xp


Looks like you need drivers for your audio hardware, unfortunately, Gateway's support site (now affiliated with Acer) does not provide the drivers directly, instead they provide a driver update utility that will hopefully find the right drivers to get your sound working again.http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/search.asp?ref=nofind&ct=fn&param=gtwupd.exeHope it helps.
