Ok, so maybe I was trying to play before the drivers were installed. I was clicking on the OE and explorer as a matter of fact.
Well, after entering my serial # and clicking the OS, I see that the bios download includes the motherboards.
Ok, you don't need to update the bios. Doing it incorrectly can kill your machine. So we'll bypass this unless it's absolutely neccessary. Are there separate
downloads for the bios, and motherboard?
I am not sure what I need. Is there a way to find out?
In my signature, there is a program called Aida32. Download it, extract it to a folder on the desktop... oops, you will need Winzip
... just download version 8 or if you want, you can visit the Winzip site
for the latest version. After you extract Aida32, run it and navigate through the program to look for Display/Graphics, Sound/Audio, Modem. Take down the model numbers if possible, and see if they match up with the drivers on the Gateway site... then download the drivers. Hopefully your computer is not so old that Aida32 can't extract the required information.
The Chipset driver will depend on what's on the motherboard. Aida32 will also give you that info under Computer/Summary. Post the info here and I'll help you look for the correct driver.
Yes, we'll wait on the speakers... but you will still need the audio drivers.
Is it possible to install the wrong drivers? Also, that 3 com diskette I had didn't seem to reference Win 95. I'll let you know the choices later.
Yes, it is possible to install incorrect drivers. Sometimes it can be very bad, but usually not unfixable. Still, we'll try to avoid doing this.
I've PM'd you.
