Ethernet Controller Driver Missing.

February 17, 2007 at 18:44:22
Specs: Windows XP, 2.67GHZ/248 MB

I am having a problem. My ethernet controller, Multimedia Audio Controller, SM bus controller, USB controller, and Video Controller drivers are missing. I just reformated that computer. I can't get on the internet on that computer so I can't find the drivers for those. What do I do?

How did you post your message if you can't get on the internet?

Seems to me that you can download the drivers from Gateway's site using the computer on which you posted this thread.

I called Gateway and they said to go on the site and enter the serial number, then go to my downloads. I did that, but when I click on OS they don't have windows XP. So what do I do now?

You can find out the model of your sound card, graphic card and network card in the specific Gateway model and find the driver online. Open your comp to take a look or search online for the hardware specification of your comp model.

For USB driver, u can alway install generic and it will work.

There's a reason for the (Manufacturer/Model:) header on this forum. It more often than not helps to facilitate the help process. Anyhow, even without knowing the model of your Getaway PC, it sure looks like the system is missing pretty much the motherboard drivers.

i find one good way of seeing what drivers you need is to look at the makes/models printed on the chips inside the computer, but i do appreciate you have to have some idea of what you are looking at.
You then go the website of the makers of those chips, eg. via , intel, realtek, sis etc

If Gateway's site doesn't have the drivers for XP, then try the ME drivers. They would be more appropriate than NT or 2K.
