Gateway MX6131

By jshellabarger2 ·
I have a Laptop(Gateway model MX6131)and the hard drive failed on me, so I purchased a new hard drive and used a Microsoft Windows XPsp2 disk to reinstall windows. When i went to gatways website to download and install the drivers. I found that the drivers downloaded from there wont work??? I see that others have had issuses with these drivers as well i would like to know if anyone has any suggestions. I even went as far as downloading drivers from intel but they dont seem to work either.

I am in need of drivers for

1.) The Ethernet Controller
2.) The Multimedia Audio Controller
3.) Network Controller
4.) PCI Modem
5.) Video Controller
6.) Mass Storage Controller

Any idea?s or help sure would be appreciated.

Found Drivers after long night of research

by jshellabarger2 In reply to Gateway MX6131

After a night of research I have found all the drivers needed for this notebook. This is a good case of customer no service on gateways part. From not telling me the correct motherboard in this system to having wrong drivers on there website. here is a list of drivers and links to there respected locations if anyone else has this issue.

Card Reader
http://support.gateway.com/support/d...&uid=113659548 (One of two of the correct drivers offered by Gateway)

Chipset ID Utility
http://downloadfinder.intel.com/scri...D=861&lang=eng (Confirm that you have the Intel 852/855 GM/GME chipset)

Chipset Drivers

Graphics Drivers

Ethernet Drivers
http://www.broadcom.com/support/ethe...oaddrivers.php (Scroll down to the BCM4401 drivers, pick your OS and you're set.)

http://conexant.com/support/md_driverdownload.jsp (Click "Modem Driver Assistance" at the top. Click agree on the next page. Then look at the HSF Generic Modem Drivers, and click the AC 97 driver for your OS. You can also get the List Modem Application to confirm you have the right modem.)


http://www.wireless-driver.com/download/broadcom/Broadcom-BCM94318MPG-Mini-PCI-Driver.htm Scroll to bottom of page and click the download button.

Cant Really

by jshellabarger2 In reply to try here

You really can use driverguide.com because you dont have a good list of manufactures for these parts. It is hard to find drivers when that is the case.
