Windows Glitch Partially Solved

The clean Windows installation went pretty smoothly; the machine was back up by 1730. The only problem: No Gateway software or drivers. I have to solve that problem now. On first start-up, it asked for the Gateway Drivers and Applications CD, so I inserted the second disk from the case containing the Windows disk. It was rejected. Another time, perhaps the computer’s owners can locate other Gateway disks that might be the right one. For now, we have a blank laptop PC with no networking capabilities and no software. At least Windows boots now…


I am an avid technology and software user, in addition to being reasonably well-versed in CSS, JavaScript, HTML, PHP, Python, and (though it still scares me) Perl. Aside from my technological tendencies, I am also a theatre technician, sound designer, violinist, singer, and actor.
