I am pretty sure the mass storage device is the memory card reader. You can get all the drivers off the gateway site. the Vista ones work fine under 7.

Hi again guys...

I just installed a new Hard Drive to my Gateway P7908u FX (same HDD as the stock one) and suddenly, the brightness control on Windows only (Fn+Up or Down at my keyboard, Enery Options at Control Panel or Brightness slider at Windows Mobility Center: Win+X) won't work... I can change the brightness on Bios or even when Windows is launching (using the keyboard) but once Windows is loaded, the brightness stays the same no matter what.

Any Ideas?
I don't have any brightness related settings on my Bios.

Thanks in Advance

Im thinking windows installed your keyboard as a different one/ usinf the wrong layout. I had a similar issue with a netbook once. Only way I was able to fix it was to reinstall windows

I am not an expert, but have you checked the display driver? I would suggest that you download the latest one from the manufacturer. Sorry if that was too obvious. Just trying to help.

Just read this a few minutes ago and want to share the info it seems if you installed a x9100 cpu on the fx-78xx you can overclock the cpu. i think this is very interesting since this is an overclocking forum.
