You will need drivers for the Win 7 64bit or Vista 64bit.

Check the Gateway web site Gateway Official Site: Notebooks, Laptops, Desktops, All-in-Ones, Displays, Monitors, Accessories
Click the Support tab at top of page then select Drivers and Downloads.
Find them for your model for Windows 7 64bit or Vista 64bit.

Vista normally works in 64bit if no Windows 7 64bit is available.

You may need to try compatibility mode for Vista drivers.

Here is why it won't work. It is a 32bit driver and you need a 64bit.
Gateway does not supply a 64bit driver.

So you can download and Save the driver then right click and try compatability mode as I posted the link above.
Tutorial here> Compatibility Mode

I see no other option.

Try what theog posted.

He evidenly knows it is Intel hardware which I did not know or find on the Gateway sight.

That should give you the most up to date proper driver.

Here is hoping and good luck.

It's not the SATA driver -- its the card reader driver. Available at that same website (Gateway Support - Downloads & Support Documents) Don't forget to change the "Operating System" selection to Windows 7 to filter out all the incompatible drivers.
