DRIVER NEEDED: Gateway Gateway MX 8711 Notebook (purchased January) (Windows XP Home) [PCI / ISA]
I am a certified computer tech at a local pc repair shop. A customer brought in a Gateway MX 8711 Notebook loaded with Windows Vista. She bought a copy of Windows XP Home and had us remove vista and install XP Home. The Gateway website has all the drivers for this notebook, but they are all ONLY for vista.
I've managed to find all the drivers elsewhere for this notebook except the Integrated Modem driver, which shows up as PCI Device in Device Manager.
I have talked to gateway live chat multiple times to acquire as much information about this integrated modem as possible. Turns out they have no clue about anything really.
I have been searching for this PCI Device modem driver for a few days now and I cannot continue to search endlessly. I talked to the customer today and explained the situation and told her it might be another day or two before I can get ahold of this modem driver. She needs it because she uses dial-up. I would rather not have her purchase a USB modem. But as a last resort, I may have to.
Most if not all the internal components are Intel from what I've been gathering. I've already tried tens of modem drivers to no success. I am getting extremely desperate now so I can get this notebook back to the customer.
Any help on locating an XP Home driver for this modem would be greatly appreciated.
