Re: PROCEDURE FOR REINSTALLING DRIVERS ON REPLACEMENT...
1. Go to the gateway site www.gateway.com
2. Click on the download drivers link
3. type in your part number
if they do not have the drivers , perhaps www.driverguide.com may have them , I personaly do not recommend using driverguide because I find their site difficult to use , and their drivers may not be
100% accurate match. I only recommend them as the LAST resort.

Hi Steve Handel II, Yes that machine has limited RAM capacity, that model can go up to 1GB of RAM total (2x512MB DIMMs.) It takes DDR PC2700, CL=2.5 unbuffered, non-ECC DDR333 memory chips. The good news is you can get them for $10-$20 most anywhere. Like HERE
That model is a little too dated to find info on. You can download and run this free tool and it will scan your PC and tell you all you need to know about the components. Most important is how many DIMM slots, and what type of ram it has. I likely has 2 slots with 256 mb in each one (256x2=512).
The tool will tell you the maximum your motherboard will support, which I am guessing is 1GB. (2x512mb).
In 2007, Gateway sold all the parts & support for your client's computer to MPC Corporation.
Then, in 2008, MPC Corporation declared bankruptcy. So, read the above web-page for details
on how to download device-drivers for your specific S/N (0028350194) and model-number.
try only connect Monitor and keyboard, and check for booting (disconnect all the rest (HDD, CD DRIVE, Sound Card, Network Card, ....) then try connect one by one and always off to change hardware config.
If dont work with monitor and keyboard, try reset bios(jumper),check again, then replace memory modules (must be compatible to new motherboard), evan dont work, send back the motherboard for defective motherboard.
When you buy a new motherboard, make sure and get one that accepts the same processor and memory, and video card that you have now. It is not terribly complicated to replace the motherboard but if you have never done it before be prepared to spend a few hours reinstalling your operating system and all the correct drivers for the new motherboard components. Also make sure you get a board that will fit in your computer case, not all boards are the same size.
