Howdy and welcome to CTH:

Check the Gateway website for the drivers. There is a very good chance there may not be any available as many computer manufacturers are using Vista only hardware for their systems if they know Vista is going to be pre-installed.

Also, check to make sure downgrading does not void your warranty.
