Gateway 505GR not showing LAN line for internet

We have a Gateway 505GR and the power went out the other day and now we can't get on the internet. When you go into my network connects the LAN local area connection is gone. I'm assuming this is a driver issue. The ethernet card is showing on with a steady burn light. I've been on the Gateway website several times and have not been able to find the driver downloads?????

Assuming it's XP,right click my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager, then look down list for network adapters, if its there click the '+' sign, then right click on the network adapter and select uninstall.

Restart pc and the network card will be found and the driver automatically installed.

It should now be in network connections, if not reply back

    I have the same computer and same problem as above and I tried exactly what u posted and it worked. Still no Local Area Connection but the 1394 connection was back on and connected. However, I still cannot connect to the internet. When I click Internet Explorer it reads "Internet Explorer cannot display this webpage". I click diagnose and it reads "Windows could not detect any wired or wireless network cards installed on your machine." I'm so frustrated. I don't know what to do.

    I fixed it. I "disabled" the 1394 connection and rebooted. Once booted, the local area connection was back up. Problem solved.

Gateway 505gr became unresponsive, on reboot windows cannot load

Hello guys,
This problem would arise only when the motherboard doesn't work properly. Check with your nearest gateway service center to get your CPU work again. That would be the only thing to be done.

Gateway 505gr motherboard replacement

not powering up does not mean the mother board is bad , the power supply going bad is more likely to be the problem . But your tower is considered to be a mini tower ive got the same one that I replaced the mother board on . dont mess up and get the wrong size board , it will not fit!

Computer not showing anything

Did you check the type of the memory card the motherboard of your computer would support? It may be a DDR1 or DDR2 and also check how much memory your motherboard can hold. You disconnect the memory card and check to see if the computer would turn on.
