I have a Gateway M6025 notebook, and I had to use the Gateway Recovery DVD to re-install XP Home. I did a full, destructive re-install, and am now having problems getting the sound card to function. I downloaded the Conexant driver from Gateway's web site, and when I run it, the result is "FAILURE". I have tried to manually install this driver, and still no luck. I have also downloaded other drivers, installed auto and manually, with no luck. The sound worked perfectly before the recovery. I have also re-installed Windows again, and downloaded the driver from Gateway a couple of times, in case it got corrupted the first time. I have read that if you put a different version of Windows on a Gateway, some of the drivers will not work, but I used the Recovery DVD that came with the laptop, so it is EXACTLY the same OS. I have never had so much trouble getting an audio driver to work. I am just about out of ideas - Any one have an answer, or suggestion. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
