I had to reload the OS on this computer. Couldnt find the original windows OS disk, so went out and bought a new one. Needless to say reinstalling the OS wiped out all the drivers.
I went to the gateway site and got to the page which has the drivers. By the way, the serial number of the computer is cce6821002106. Using this serial number, the link to the drivers page is
http://support.gateway.com/support/d...s=Windows%20XP

I downloaded the motherboard driver D0447-001-001.exe on a different computer and put it on a usb stick to transfer it to the gateway. When I started the install process according to the instructions in the included text file in the download, the nvidia installer setup utility started, but it didnt do anything except give the initial nvidia splash screen.

I tried the other motherboard driver too. Same thing.

Why want the installer file setup the drivers?

Well...you may have made a mistake in typing the number, resulting in wrong drivers.

There are multiple drivers listed at the Gateway site.

Try these, http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers...p;uid=255932385.

Uninstall the drivers you previously installed before attempting to install what appears to be the correct ones.
