Computer manuel for gateway DX4860-UB32P

Gateway Support > Gateway DX4860 series of Desktop PC's > Main Support page,

On this page click on the User Guides tab.

(Drivers, BIOS, Applications, Patches, Support Documents, Top Answers, User Guides)

Then on Generic User Guide.

Other than that you may be referring to a MOTHERBOARD MANUAL. Not available, however;

Click on Specifications;

1) All the Processor options listed, use the same processor socket;
the LGA 1155,

2) Motherboard has an Intel H67 motherboard chipset,

C) Ram Memory;
Up to 16GB's of DDR3 Sdram, that operates at a frequency rate ('Speed'), of 1333MegaHertz.

4GB ram memory modules ('Stick') in the four ram memory slots, is 16GB.

However NOT a good idea.

With the Nehalem architecture you NEED to use 3 ram memory modules, (The Sandy Bridge architecture is an evolution of the Nehalem architecture),

From the above,

"The memory controller integrated on Nehalem-based processors, provides three memory channels, i.e., it is capable of accessing three memory modules at the same time, IN PARALLEL, in order to improve performance.

In THEORY triple-channel architecture provides a 50 PERCENT increase of available bandwidth, compared to a dual channel architecture running at the same clock rate."

The above is from Gabriel Torres, author.

From me;
Note the words used, "In THEORY".

From extensive testing by another website, it was found long ago, that dual channel architecture does NOT increase ram memory performance by much.

THEORY was that using two LIKE ram memory modules, would increase ram memory performance up to 30 PERCENT.

From extensive testing, (MANY motherboards, processors, and ram memory modules), and another website, it was found the actual increase is more like ONE to TWO percent.


In otherwords looks good on PAPER.

(Be aware that Gabriel knows it is theory also. That is why it is stated as T-H-E-O-R-Y. Gabriel is VERY INTELLIGENT. The theory stated is from Intel, not Gabriel.
Gabriel, as I do also, knows it is just ON PAPER. Doesn't really work that way in reality)

Read on down through the article from this intelligent person, and you will find out more, about why you should use THREE ram memory modules, in comparison to using FOUR, in all four ram memory module slots.
{ Luv ya Gabriel! You are THE tech! }

D) Graphics: Intel HD Graphics,

Since all of the Intel Core i processors listed, use the Sandy Bridge architecture, the Intel HD Graphics, is HD Graphics 2000,
(DESKTOP processors),

It's just Integrated Graphics, anyway.
(Integrated graphics is also known as OnBoard graphics.
ON the motherBOARD)

There is a PCI-Express x16 expansion slot, however.
A PCI-Express graphics card can be used.

TWO things;
1) I would use a PCI-Express 2.0 graphics card, and not a PCI-Express 2.1, or 3.0 graphics card.

2) The Power Supply is 300 Watts. BETTER, to bump it up to an economical, reliable 600 Watt unit, { It is an ATX unit }, if you are going to use a graphics card.

{ Does indicate 500 Watts full power, but this is FULL power, and may also be another option, than the 300 Watt Non-PFC unit.
A different power supply, option.

It is better to have a power supply, that can put out at LEAST 10 percent more power, than what is needed. Power supply lasts longer as it doesn't have to strain }

Just ONE example,

{Be aware that a computer will ONLY use the power it needs, and NO MORE. Just because you have a 600 Watt power supply, does NOT mean the computer will use 600 Watts all of the time.

Surfing the internet? About 100 Watts.
Playing an intensive game? 600 Watts }

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Do you have a manual for a canada ices class b mother board

Canada ICES (Industry Canada Interference Causing Equipment Standard), is as the full name for the ICES abbreviation shows, a standard in Canada. What is not stated by the abbreviated title, is that it's a standard for EMC, and the unwanted interference of radio communications, that can be caused by EMC. ElectroMagnetic Compatibility..

Article entailing EMC on Wikipedia,

From the Wikipedia article; "Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is the branch of electrical sciences which studies the unintentional generation, propagation and reception of electromagnetic energy with reference to the unwanted
effects (Electromagnetic interference, or EMI) that such energy may induce. " Some electronic equipment produces EMI. ElectroMagnetic Inteference. Personal computers, are a digital electronic device, which Does produce EMI. However due to standards set by regulatory agencies, the EMI is kept down to an acceptable level. (FCC for United States. Federal Communications Commission)

Here you can see the different classifications set by Canada ICES, and the Class A, and B designation, For a motherboard made in the USA, the classification N1996, is a Radio Frequency Interference classification, quite like the ICES-003 standard.

Point? The classification has nothing to do with identifying what motherboard manufacturer made your motherboard. Let me give you some information I have gleaned over the years from experience, and what others have gleaned, and stated on the internet.

1st) Look in-between the Expansion slots for a manufacturer code. Generally a Model Number. To wit; A) ISA expansion slot (Generally Black in color) B) PCI expansion slot (White in color) C) AGP expansion slot D) PCI Express expansion slot.

More information on Expansion Slot, and information leading to the above stated types of expansion slots, I invite you to scroll down to the heading - Expansion Slot Standards, and left-click on each type stated.

This photo of a typical motherboard, shows a PCI expansion slot, (2 each. White in color), and a PCI Express expansion slot (1 each, and in this case a PCI Express x16. Black in color ) (You can left-click on the photo to enlarge it)

Looking in-between the black PCI Express x16 expansion slot, and the white PCI expansion slot, you will see ASUS. It is upside down in the photo. Motherboard manufacturer of this motherboard is Asus. Looking to the right of the blue Ram Memory slot 1, you will see Asus's motherboard manufacturer Model Number, for this motherboard, A8N -VM CSM REV 1.10G stands for Revision 1.10G Asus's code for how many times the motherboard design, has been revised.

Sometimes, the motherboard manufacturer model number, is printed on the motherboard right out in the middle. Sometimes along one edge. Sometimes NOT at all. Older motherboards made by certain motherboard manufacturers, were not proud to state their name on the motherboard, nor a Model Number. Reasoning is rumored, that these particular motherboard manufacturers, stole certain designs implemented by other motherboard manufacturers, (Usually top of the line manufacturers),. and used it on their motherboards. Most of those motherboard manufacturers are not in business today.

Here is more information on identifying your motherboard, IF, the motherboard is installed in a working computer, you may be able to use CPU-Z from, (Free, but they do accept donations), and find out who is the motherboard manufacturer. I state MAY, because there is a possibility that not all motherboard manufactures may be on record for CPU-Z. There ARE a LOT of motherboard manufacturers who are, However. Some of the main information that CPU-Z states, is the Motherboard Chipset. Armed with this info you can find out what, A) Processors can be used B) Ram Memory C) Graphics Cards Information on CPU-Z on Wikipedia, (You can left-click on the CPU-Z GUI at the upper right, to enlarge it. GUI = Graphics User Interface) IF, the motherboard is Not installed in a working computer, working together, and looking for the motherboard chipset used, together we can derive needed information. [Motherboard Chipset; For one, Chip, and Chipset are slang terms used to denote I.C. Integrated Circuit. The Motherboard 'Chipset' is the Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip. (Unless, it is the new technology used on motherboards for the Intel Core i3, i5, and i7 processors)

I don't know how to access my Western Digital Backup. I have no icon to click.


If you have a WD Media Center, Dual-option Combo, or Dual-option USB external hard drive, you can use the Retrospect Express software that comes with the drive to create a backup schedule that will backup your data onto the drive.

To setup an automatic duplicate schedule in Retrospect Express 6.5 on a PC, please follow the instructions below.
  1. Start Retrospect Express by pressing the Automatic Backup button on the front of your Media Center external hard drive after you have installed the Retrospect software and powered on and connected the drive.

  2. You will be presented with the Western Digital Automatic Backup Wizard. Click Next to continue.

  3. Highlight the drive(s) that contains the data you wish to backup and click Next. To select multiple drives or folders, hold down the Ctrl key and make your selections.

  4. You will have a choice to backup your documents only or all files, make your selection and click Next.

  5. Highlight the drive you wish to copy your data to and click Next.

  6. You will have the option to run the data duplication daily or once a week. Make your selection and click Next.

    • If you choose a daily duplication, you will have to select the time that you'd like the duplication to start each day, then click Next.

    • If you choose a weekly duplication, you will have to select the day and time that you'd like the duplication to start, then click Next.

    • If you wish to run the duplication one time when you are finished setting up the schedule, check the Start the backup now box and click Finish. Otherwise, just click Finish.

    • You will see the Automatic backup button glow a solid blue. When the blue light is on it indicates that the automatic duplication schedule is enabled and your duplication is set to run at the scheduled time.
For the duplication to run successfully, you must have both the computer and drive powered on and connected correctly at the scheduled time.
