Hi. I have a Gateway NE56R34u which came with Windows 8 but I installed Windows XP. I can't find any GPU drivers for it either through Gateway or through the NVIDIA site (using both the scan method for All NVIDIA drivers as well as the GeForce scan). Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

That's a Windows 8 laptop. There are NO XP drivers available for it.

You may be right. I checked with the Gateway Hardware Vendor Detection Utility (it's posted under their Driver Support section and seems to be something made by Acer) and it says VGA Intel. I looked under Products on Intel's site but it doesn't list Video or Graphics cards (or I may have missed it but I'm quite sure I didn't see anything of the sort).

Best solution

Thanks. I did that and it gave the message:
*************
Product Detected Intel® Processor Graphics 2000
Current Driver Installed 9.17.10.2843
A customized computer manufacturer driver is installed on your computer. The Intel Driver Update Utility is not able to update the driver. Installing a generic Intel driver instead of the customized computer manufacturer driver may cause technical issues. Contact your computer manufacturer for the latest driver for your computer.

I searched for Intel Processor Graphics 2000 in Intel's Download Center and got a couple of results for XP: Intel HD Graphics Driver Version 14.51.10 and Version 14.51.11. But when I try to install them I get errors that a line could not execute or that the driver is not validated.

You're not going to find XP drivers for that platform.
