    I have a Gateway notebook. It came with Win XP Media Center 2005. I reformatted it to XP pro sp2. The computer itself is fine, sort of. It is a wireless Gateway, but it can not detect wireless connections. I tried starting a new broadband network, but it wont let me because it says the one on the computer should be working. I can't even connect to the computer by hooking up directly to the router.
    Another problem are my sound an video. Since the "up-grade" I lost all of my sound and video capabilities. Apparently the sound drivers were not loaded. I can't even look for updates online because it the Wizard can not find an internet connection. What shoud I do? Thank you.

    You need to go to the Gateway site and download the chipset, sound, video, and network drivers for your specific laptop. Since that machine doesn't connect, use a CD-R/RW or USB FLASH disk to move them over to the machine for installation.
