looking for Gateway drivers
I have a Gateway e2000 win xp desktop that needed the hard drive replaced. I have an original copy of xp that I used, but the video setting is at its lowest setting and can't be changed. I need to find the drivers for it. I don't have the original recovery disc. I went to Gateways suport site and read that a company called MPC took over some of Gateway's earlier models. MPC's website no longer exists. Where can I get the drivers or recovery disc? Are those free driver download sites safe to use? Thanks.

The video card be it a pci'agp etc or internal is made by ATI/nVidia or SIS. You shouyld be able to get the drivers from one of them.
This free app should be able to give you info on the video card:

Thanks Steve. It uses integrated video, no cards at all in this computer.

What chipset do you have then? Go the chipset manufacturer's site and download the video drivers there.

After searching for a users guide and finding one, it looks like it has an Intel i82845GL chipset. I would then go to Intel's website and download the video drivers there?

Yes. Go to the intel driver site for the 845GL chipset.
