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.
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?
