I have a Gateway M325X laptop that I need Audio and Mass Storage Controller drivers.  I've downloaded the available drivers from the Gateway/MPC site and they do not work properly.  By this I mean they aren't the correct drivers and/or aren't available.  I'm running Windows XP Home.  

The driver link I have is http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/search.asp?st=pn¶m=1008421

Multimedia Audio Controller PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_266E&SUBSYS_0300107B&REV_04\3&B1BFB68&0&F2

Mass Storage Controller PCI\VEN_104C&DEV_8033&SUBSYS_0300107B&REV_00\4&1D3F0FBB&0&3BF0


Thanks in advance.

For the audio, you may need to install Microsoft's UAA driver *first*. That should be here:

Microsoft* HDA Package

@souseran, Thanks!  The storage driver worked great.  The sound driver however appears to have installed with no worries and cleared any ! in device manager but I have no sound on the laptop.  I tried external speakers and made sure the manual knob on the laptop was set to loud to include checking the applications volume settings.  None of these things worked.

@souseran, I didn't read the latest post in time so I installed the other audio link first.  When I try to install the one linked to the Intel site it tells me..

Setup has detected that the Service Pack version of this system
is newer than the update you are applying.

There is no need to install this update.

Your links provided me with the correct drivers.  I had to run Driver Magician on the original drive in order to get the sound working again.  Thanks for your assistance.
