  • Hi,

     

    Please understand that this is Windows Vista Forum. In order to get the answer effectively, it is recommended to submit a new question in Windows 7 Forum.

     

    Personally, you may install the driver in Compatibility Mode to have a try.

     

    How to run an application with Compatibility Mode:

     

    1.     Right click on the program's shortcut or executable file and select Properties.

    2.     Switch to the Compatibility tab.

    3.     Check the “Run this program in compatibility mode for” box.

    4.     Click on the drop down menu arrow and select which version of Windows the program was made for and click OK.

     

    Also, as Drtunababa stated that there is no Windows 7 drivers in the Gateway website, you need to contact the manufacturer to obtain the Windows 7 driver for this issue.

     

    Regards,

     

    Sabrina
