driver issue?

i just had to use my restore disk, because i installed a new hd in my notebook. i now can't go past 1024x768 in my display settings when i had 1200x1080 before. i also have no audio. i downloaded a driver from gateway (i have an mx6440 BTW.) and nothing. i also tried "updating from the restore disc and internet as well. nothing. i go into the device manager and everything under "other devices" have the yellow exclamation. this includes my audio as well. any idea what's going on here?

Checked Gateway's Site For Hardware Drivers?

It appears as if the recovery CD didn't correctly install all the hardware drivers.. You'll need to find and install each driver for audio, video, chipset, ethernet, etc.

Hope this helps.

getting there

well, i got my video, etc. going, however the audio or modem drivers will not install. two seperate packages, but look like they're related. both are AC/Context or something on those lines.

Probably AC'97 or Conexant But...'ll need to know for sure.. If necessary give the computer manufacturer a telephone call.

Hope this helps.
