I have no sound because I have no multimedia audio controller
; but so far, whenever I've downloaded the device and drivers, or the drivers after first installing the device, I get the blue page aborting the installation and dumping physical memory and I have to do a hard reboot.
Further, I've noted that the Linux systems I have installed all use the same Realtek multimedia audio controller and drivers that are indicated for XP, except that with Linux, they come with the kernel (I guess) and don't have to be user installed.
I have XP on another comupter (a Dell 8300) and have had no problem with installing the appropriate device and drivers, so I assume this to be an issue with this computer. When I go to the website for Gateway drivers, well over a hundred models and serial numbers are listed for support -- except the E-4000!
What can I do? Is there a known work-around for this? Would I still have the same problem if I upgraded to Windows 7?
Any and all help would be much appreciated. Thank you.
