I needed to reformat my FX 510S. I used the "installation disk." There is no "drivers" disk (Gateway used to give you a seperate drivers and applications disk with new machines, but I noticed they stopped). I reinstalled and had a number of "Unknown devices". I was able to find drivers for pretty much everything and got back on the internet and fixed my graphics issues. I have a couple of issue remaining and have looked ALL over for help.
First, and most importantly, I have NO sound. No system sounds, no CD palying sounds, no internet sounds.
There are 2 sound devices: IDT High Definition Audio Codec and SB Audigy, which was purchased at the same time as the new machine (early part of 2007) but installed by us. I have that disk and used it to reinstall. Device manager says that both devices are there and functioning "properly". I double checked that they are enabled etc. I even tried disabling the IDT in case of conflict (although it says there is no device conflicts.) I updated the motherboard/chipset drivers.
I looked at all the drivers on the Gateway site and nothing seems pertinent -- plus, it says my drivers are there and the hardware is working.
What am I missing here??
Also, I do have 2 "unknown devices". (Yellow question marks with Yellow asterisks) I cannot figure out what these might be or how to find them. Nothing seems to be missing that I can think of . The Unknown devices, with no drivers installed, (error code 28) are listed as:
PCI device (PCI slot 17 - PCI Bus 4, devoce 0 and func 4)
PCI Serial Port (same as above but func 3)
Here is some basic info on my computer:

Any help anyone could give me would be greatly appreciated. I would say I have tried everything but since I still have no sound I suppose I have not quite tried "everything" yet!
Thank you so much
