About 2 months ago I decided just to wipe my HDD completely. I had this problem but was too lazy and decided not to fix it right away. I partitioned it into 2 parts. On one I put Windows7 Pro and on the other a Linux distro called Mint. I've never had any problems installing drivers on Windows in the past. I borrowed a friend's wireless adapter and began installing drivers. Like always I used a program called 3DP Chip but the drivers for my wireless card wouldn't work. I also used a program called SlimDrivers but that didn't help either. I went to the manufacturers website and got the drivers that seemed to be correct but that didn't work. I was desperate enough to try the built in driver finding tool for Windows which, no suprise, didn't work. I don't need an Internet connection on my Windows partition. Everything I use Windows for is offline. But it's still inconvienent on some days having to switch over to Linux just to do a simple Google search.  I didn't have any problems with Mint, so it can't be a problem with the wireless card. Any help? xD

Have you gone to Gateway's support site for your computer?

http://support.gateway.com/product/default.aspx?modelId=2380 is the driver link for all your drivers.
