Hello,

A few days ago, I tried to turn on my computer and got black screen/blinking cursor. Did some reading on here and changed my Raid Array to striped and copied an ISO of Vista onto a CD. (cuz gateway is lame and provides no disks). Now, I can get to windows install screen, but then I am told the cd/dvd driver is missing. I have downloaded the motherboard/chipset onto a USB and it's not recognizing drivers on it. I am at a loss. How can I recover this computer? I have a Gateway Lx6810-01. Any help would be really appreciated. I am totally missing Guild Wars 2!! lol

Put the ISO/Vista on USB if you can boot from it. or try the FIXIT.
