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.

Gateway dx4300-11 won't power on after put in


Is the Gateway DX4300 having problems while installing the drivers after sleep mode
or does it have these problems during the laptop is turned on.
Always make sure you download the right drivers for your system.
If you installed Windows Vista after you had formatted the system and now your trying
to install them you might want to go on another system and download all of the drivers either on an external hard drive or an SD card so everything can be accessible.
After you install Windows Vista or 7 make sure that the compatibility mode is selected while installing the drivers.
Most of Gateway drivers are Windows XP so you have to go and right click on each and every driver and change the compatibility mode to Windows XP SP2 that way when you let it install then Windows Update will activate to perform updates for hardware drivers and software applications. It will also get the KB updates for your computer.
This will probably fix the sleep mode and improve it too.

1. Go on Gateway's site
2. Download the DX4300-11 drivers and make sure its directly from
Gateway on a SD card or external hard drive.
3. Change the compatibility mode to Windows XP SP2
and let it run as administrator.
Each driver will then install and then you will fully use
your computer's capability.
After the drivers are installed then change your power options
as it will continue to install your drivers.
Check to make sure that your battery is fully charged and is plugged in
if it is. If not plug in for charging the battery.
If all fails then you will need to replace the motherboard.

Xp home installation


You need to have installed drivers for xp for that hard drive. Without them it won't load.
You can go to the Gateway site and enter your serial number to see the original configuration of your system, get the names of the hardware installed on it, and look for drivers for xp for all of that hardware.
Please see this article and follow the links at the end to make sure you have all the drivers needed for an xp installation. Downgrade vista to xp
Also an excellent tutorial for updating drivers here and a source of drivers here
