Hi there, I'm new and would like some help.

I have a Gateway NV44 Laptop, originally came with Vista. I lost my vista CD and my computer crash, all I had was a friends legitimate windows 7 cd. I installed Windows 7 and everything worked fine, but my Touchpad and USBs don't work.

I have checked the bios as much as I could, I can't find anything that says "Activate" or "Deactivate" Touchpad. I checked my device manager but can't find anything, and under mouse in the control panel there is nothing there. 

I went to the gateway site and installed all the appropriate drivers. What do I do now? How do I fix this?

If I can get a live chat with a technician on skype, I would appreciate it. (Not voice, just able to talk live).

 

Skype is Coltong7

Unknown device discovery.... Here's a tute (I didn't really read it as I know how to do it) that looks right.

i cant use my touchpad or the usb, so I cant use a device to move the mouse, so its very difficult to do anything really... and I'm for sure there is no device missing in my device manager about a touchpad, its no where to be found.

connect to it with another conputer will be easiest...,

 

Connect on client computer,

right click on computer in start menu>

manage>

right click on computer management>

connect to host>

services (in list)>

enable remote registry (in panel list),

 

then do it there, as you would if you were on the problem machine.
