Old gateway essential 400c PC

I bought a wireless keyboard and mouse for my computer and when I went to install the CD it requires Windows 2000 or Windows XP. I don't know that my old computer could handle Window's XP?? It has a 400MHZ Celeron Processor I added memory to it but that's about it.

Yes, a 400 mhz processor can run windows xp, but you will want to have a LOT of ram. i would not recommend it unless you have at 256-512 or more ram.

windows 2000 can get along with 128-256 ram.

I have a gateway sx2110g need to change bios to legacy i am running windows xp i am trying to install windows 8


STOP!!!
before you update, check what devices need drivers and if you still can get drivers for these devices, like sound card, video card, but also when you have a webcam and wireless keyboard and mouse.
Since Window's 7 you need Microsoft certified drivers and your old XP drivers can't be used anymore.
Feel free to setup windows 8.1, but make sure you have a image for your old configuration, so you always can go back when you can't get enough drivers to let the computer run like you used to.

MOUSE AND KEYBOARD FROZE UP


I'm assuming that your keyboard and mouse are wireless versions. You should therefore have a wireless controller plugged into one of the USB ports, probably at the back of the PC. Try removing the wireless controller and install it in a different USB port. The Windows operating system should detect it as a new device and attempt to install the drivers automatically.

Gateway wireless keyboard detection


Insert the installation CD that came with your wireless keyboard set into your computer's CD-ROM drive.

Use the CD to install the drivers for the wireless peripherals.


Insert batteries into the keyboard .

Use a screwdriver to remove any screws that hold the battery bay covers closed.


Connect the wireless signal receiver to your computer.

Receivers for wireless keyboard and mouse sets usually use a USB connector.


Your computer will automatically detect the receiver.

Turn on your keyboard if the devices have power buttons.


Press the "Sync," "Connect" or "Pair" buttons on the keyboard , depending on your model.

If present, press the "Connect" button on the wireless signal receiver as well.

Your wireless keyboard set is now connected.


hope this helps

Wireless mouse and keyboard issues


If you have both sets of keyboard and mouse plugged in, turn off the computer and remove the old mouse and plug in the new mouse. Reboot and if necessary use the keyboard to login. Once windows is loaded let it detect the new mouse and then shut down again. Take out the old keyboard and reboot. You should now be able to use both new pieces without problems.

Gateway 610 k/b & mouse unrecognized..CMOS problem??


It's not the K/M, there probably was a surge that went through, and effected the motherboard in the computer. so you can take it to your local computer shop. But, before you bring it there, back up your important files because they might have to format your HD.
