I have a Gateway laptop, MX6000. Device drivers won't load for several items, but all the hardware works in Ubuntu 7.10 (dual load machine). If it's broken hardware, it ain't gonna' work in ANY OS. Right? It seems somehow that Windows is stoppin' the proper drivers from loadin'. I've tried device uninstall, disable, safe mode, driver update and rollback, reformat original OS, re-format with eXP corp burn, psychic hotline, seance, witch doctor, etc., ... Any ideas? Thanks, buccaneere EDIT: Already went to Gateway site, and individual hardware manufacturer's sites too. EVERYTHING.
