Re: Installing Drivers???
Is this gateway a laptop or desktop computer?
If your just reformatting to put xp home on, then you just need to put the disk in, let it boot and follow the instructions, the only things to watch out for is 1 write down you INTERNET provider details so you can set up your INTERNET and email client, drivers for you sound card and graphics card (if required) have a antivrus ready to install and activate the windows firewall ASAP once installed you can reinstall your software if and when.
If you have any hardware issues, right click my computer,properties,hardware, device manager and see if you have any yellows, if so click on them to see whats missing (driver)
go to the manufactures website or google search for the driver, windows might even look and find it for you.
