Having problems with your PC Laptops ?
I'm looking for Windows XP drivers for my Gateway M-2610H laptop.
\015 I recently bought a Gateway M-2610H laptop. It's a great laptop, but I'm not a big fan of Vista (I've had to work with it too much at work and still prefer XP).I'm currently Dual booting it with Ubuntu Linux and Windows Vista. I'd prefer to swap Vista out for XP, but I'm not having a lot of luck finding the drivers. I've been able to find the video and wireless drivers, beyond that I can only find Vista versions.If anyone has any tips or ideas for finding the XP drivers that would be great. Thanks.\015
