Check system file integrity

The integrity of the system files must be checked as the drivers require all of the system files to be intact during the installation phase. The system file integrity check can be carried out using the 'sfc/scannow' command in the command prompt. If any system files are found damaged, the OS would have to be repaired before the installation.

Use safe mode

Safe mode is an operational state in which your Gateway MT3422 would be operating on very minimal services. The installation of the drivers as well as updated versions of BIOS is best done when the system is in the safe mode. This would reduce chances of driver conflicts or errors developing during installation. The safe mode can be accessed by tapping the 'F8' keys when Gateway MT3422 is starting up.

Run antivirus program

All Gateway MT3422 users installing drivers are advised to run the antivirus program installed on the system before starting with the installation procedures. If any malware are found, they must be removed as presence of malware infections within the system would cause corruption of the drivers or BIOS which would leave the system inoperable.
