Its a bit tricky to do that, you would probably need to open up the laptop to see what hardware your computer is using. However, if you go to the start menu, then you can right click on my computer, select "manage", go to device manager and look up the device name for each thing and go to the manufacturers websites and download the drivers from their sites. You may be able to get drivers from an older version of the hardware to work with your computer too. Hope this helps.

No sound on gateway laptop mx8738 after changing to xp


You'll have to update (downdate since XP is older than Vista, lol) the audio drivers for XP, the ones for Vista apparently are compatable.
http://support.gateway.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?partNumber=1014556R

download, save to desktop, unpack the file then go to start, then go to the device manager.
You can open Device Manager by double-clicking on the System icon in Control Panel, choosing the Hardware tab, and clicking Device Manager.

Locate the audio driver (it should have a yellow symbol next to it which indicates a problem with the device or driver) right click on the audio driver that needs updating, choose update driver, update the driver automatically, if it doesn't find the driver you downloaded then locate driver manually and point it to the location on your desktop where the driver is located. This should solve your problem.

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

First off, you don't sound dumb, nobody is born computer literate. It's one thing to learn how to use computers, it's another when it comes to loading or working on them. Don't worry about it reading upgrade from 98 or 2000, Vista wasn't around when they packaged these, and Vista to XP is fine. I use XP Pro, I find that it's better than XP Home for my needs. Pro or Home will work fine for you, don't get the XP basic, the Home and Pro have better features. Also, you just need to purchase A Windows XP disc, and not a disc from Gateway or Gateway disc. Windows XP is sold at Walmart, Bestbuy, or Circuit City. After the install you will need to go to Gateway's support site and download any drivers that you need, I'll list the link for it bellow. You can find which drivers you need in the device manager, the devices with yellow question marks need drivers. If you have any problems with any of this get back to me. Thanks for the compliment on the pic, most people don't get it, especially the younger crowd on here.

Only if it's not an HP labele operating system disc. Otherwise you will need an XP operating system disc, the HP recovery disc with XP will not work with your Gateway or any other manufacturer machine other than HP. The operating system on any manufacturer recovery disc is assigned to that specific manufacturer, so if you try to install from the HP disc it might install, but it will only give you thirty days, then shut down, or it won't install at all. It will be cheaper to purchase an XP operating system disc than all the software over again just for Viiiiiista!!! (I enjoy making fun of Vista) If you have anymore questions or need help feel free to ask.
