They are for experienced users to test for bugs on a spare PC & provide feedback to the driver supplier.

Don't get obsessed with keeping the drivers or the BIOS up to date Leave them alone unless an update fixes a problem you're experiencing or offers new features you absolutely must have.

If you need a driver for a particular Gateway device, such as the monitor, ensure that you note the model number of your hardware first.

You can get this information from the Device Manager utility.

The drivers must be specific to the particular model of your computer or sound device, and are usually produced by the sound device or motherboard manufacturer.

On a 64-bit operating system, the drivers of the sound device must be 64-bit.

If this occurs it is important that the drivers are updated.

Drivers are the piece of software that tells your computer how to talk to the specific hardware you have installed or connected to your computer.

There are many situations in which you may need to download and install Gateway drivers.

You may need to find out the name, specifications and current driver details for your sound device, so you can update it correctly.

To do this, you can use Device Manager on Windows, System Profiler on a Mac or the /lspci or /lsusb commands on Linux.

For instance, if you own a Gateway monitor and need to download a new driver for it but are not sure of its model number, you can get the necessary information doing the following: Browse to the location where you have stored the downloaded file, and then double-click the driver file (file extension) and follow the onscreen prompts.

If you are asked to restart your system after the installation is complete, do so.

Device Manager can also try and update the drivers for you itself, and Windows users are strongly recommended to try this update facility as a first step - see Extra help for Windows users below.
