Why not use the OS that came with the Gateway?
I recently helped my brother reformat his Gateway GT5040. I understand that after you reformat, you need to go to the manufacturer's website go get the drivers, but they don't exist. I put in the model, select Windows XP 64 Bit Edition, and then there are no audio drivers. I've contacted Gateway several times and they won't provide any help because the warranty expired. Is there any driver that could substitute Gateway's? Any help is appreciated.
