Having problems with your Gateway M460 Notebook ?

Error: PCI on motherboard and strange wireless/driver issues.

\015 I own a Gateway m460 laptop running xp service pack 3 and last night my wireless seemed to stop working, D/Cd me and wouldnt reconnect BUT i could still browse sites only with no audio from the web. After a quick restart to see if the problem would solve itself i recieved an error. "error: PCI on motherboard"I completely ignored the fact that it told me the bus and device number so i could go and figure out exactly what was at fault and if it could be resolved without tossing my motherboard... however upon loading, my video driver was "uninstalled" as were my wireless drivers. trying to reinstall them simply gave me a "components already installed" message and nothing worked. i took the extreme route and reinstalled windows. i updated my bios AND manually installed the motherboard drivers as it was saying found new hardware, mass storage device/ PCI driver/ something else i dont recall and it wouldnt install them without the internet to find drivers an of course.. its saying my wireless was gone. so anyway i installed all drivers again using a family members comp and then restarted again. i nolonger get the PCI on motherboard error screen but now on the boot screen there is a message in the top corner saying "PXE-E01: unsupported PCI device!" and my comp completely freezes after 2-10 minutes. everything seems to stop, harddrive sounds like its spinning but barely, fan stops, dis drive stops, light stop flashing.. everything. and i have to reinstall the wireless drivers every time i get on and, even when reinstalled, it will only connect once every 10 or so times. besides this, the motherboard drivers still seem to be uninstalling and finding themselves... im guessing the motherboard is finished, anything i can do to patch this though? i surely dont have 300 dollars for a new board.\015
