Gatway 7330GZ Laptop
Pent 4 (3.2GHZ)
1/2 G Ram
XP Pro SP2
A few months ago the hard drive on this unit crashed, massive clicking…. Tried everything to recover, including freezing the HD, didn’t work. I installed a new drive this AM and used a recovery disk copied off the net for this model, no disks were made when the unit was purchased (not my unit, a friends). XP installed but I am unable to get online to do any additional updates.
In device manager I have yellow ! on the following:
Multimedia Audio Controller
Video Controller (VGA Compatible)
Due to the amount of yellow ! I seem to think that the recovery disk, although it appeared to work, was not the right one. I think if I can get to the net I will be able to update these drivers and XP to SP3.
Thanks in advance for your assistance
