New Hard Drive installed, need drivers

June 18, 2009 at 08:22:46
Specs: Windows XP, 1.4GHZ/504
Hard Drive on my laptop became corrupted and after I removed my files I pulled it out and put in a hard drive from my friend's computer. I reinstalled the OS and windows comes up normally. However I can't connect to the internet because I don't have any drivers, and I can't get any drivers because I can't connect to the internet. Are their drivers for my lan, wireless card, etc... on the OS installation disk?

" I can't get any drivers because I can't connect to the internet"

You obviously were able to get online to post your questions. All you have to do is download the drivers onto a disc or thumbdrive, then install them on your laptop.

"Are their drivers for my lan, wireless card, etc... on the OS installation disk?"

No, you're going to have to get them from the Gateway website.

Thanks. I realized that after I posted my message, I could get download them and put them on a flash drive. Not thinking too clearly. I got more problems than that, I re-installed with a dell recovery cd instead of the Gateway one that I have apparently lost. Not sure if this is going to work.
