I recently had to replace a bad HDD for my son and load WinXP PRO OS on his Gateway M405 Notebook. He doesn't have the original install CD for drivers for this notebook, because the college he went to provided him with this computer for signing up and attending there. I didn't get anywhere with MPC who bought out Gateway either. Can you help with finding the correct drivers for my son's Gateway M405? Thank you, Jim Day [email protected]
