:whistling: I am going to need to write quite alot here to explain my problem entirely. Anyone who would like to read and try to help me out would be greatly appreciated. I would also like to say that I am an advanced user myself, so believe me, I have looked everywhere and found alot of things that do not work and nothing that does. I have a Gateway Solo2500 Notebook PC. This is a fairly old notebook so I can see why it is so hard to get the right drivers and software for Windows XP pro. From what I am finding out there on the web, there are no drivers for at least 2 of my built in devices for WinXP. First off, my soundcard is a NeoMagic MagicWave 3DX. Windows XP lists it in my device manager as a NeoMagic MagicMedia AV. I cannot find the correct driver anywhere. I have Windows XP Professional SP2. This driver seems to work fine, but I cannot mute the microphone in Volume Control. If I mute it and close volume control and turn up my main volume, my speakers let out a "screech". Very Loud and annoying. Open Volume Controls again and the microphone is unmuted. Same thing everytime. Simply cant mute it. So now I try to turn the microphone all the way down. Cannot do it, if I open volume control and turn the mic volume all the way down and then close the volume control and reopen it, the mic is no longer turned down. What can I do?

If you can't figure that out. Probably the worst problem I am having is with the touchpad. With windows 98 my touchpad is listed as a touchscroll ps/2 after I install Logitech Mouseware. With Windows XP however, if I download and install Logitech Mouseware, it does not recognize it as a touchpad. Now this is annoying... I need to disable the tapping on this touchpad... It clicks on everything when I am trying to type and move the cursor around. If I cannot get the options in my mouse properties to disable this then I am guessing that there has got to be a way I could disable this tapping manually. There has to be a string I could just change the value of or something... I have tried everything and nothing works... I have downloaded the synaptics touchpad driver as well. That recognizes it as a touchpad, but will not allow me to disable tapping because it is not a synaptics device. I try to install both the synaptics driver and the mouseware, but they overwrite one another. Is there anything I can do here?
