    I found the solution myself (after much experimentation) ;)

    I updated the bios, I also had to put the cd-rom on the secondary IDE channel as master. Used KillDisk to overwrite the drive to get the leftover Linux files out. Used a Win'98 boot disk to run fdisk

    and partition the drive, formatted with FAT32 file system. Then installed Win XP, allowing the setup to format into NTFS file system and setup XP. Got a driver set from Intel for the onboard ethernet and got a third party raid driver. Intel celeron 2.2ghz CPU,

    4GB SDRM.....this thing now runs like its on fire! Should be the fastest PC I've seen. Good to get some good use at home out of my old webserver. :)

I have a gateway gt4022 running windows xp. When


Probably hardware failure. To test that remove all disks and extra components and try again to boot into BIOS. If you can't then you will know for sure. If you can then take the opportunity to change the boot order and put the cd first and the hd second. Now connect an optical unit and try to boot in a bootable disk, preferably a Linux Live-CD. If you can then the hard disk is dead, replace it.

Hi, I have formatted the SATA hard drive in my Gateway GT 5408 with Intel motherboard D945GCFG1. I want to load XP pro instead of the original Vista which was on it. Do I need to change the Bios or install...


No, you do not need to install a new driver as long as that is the same sata hard disk tha used to work in your Gateway computer. Just boot into your windows xp installation cd and let the setup continue.

Should you need further assistance, please let me know.

Gateway 5310 series Multi videocard output


The MB video, is automatically disabled when you plug in any other card, accordingly, usually it is "Enabled" when it is taken out. You can adjust the Video RAM size sometimes via the BIOS, though. Now to get the drivers, look on the MB, there will be a set of big, Numbers and Letters, usually white, or black, by one of the slots, that is the Motherboard's identity, or get Everest, a free MB identity program, now, using that number Google, that-number + motherboard drivers, That will get you them, download and install. XP SP2, would be better...

I have a unknown password to a Administrator login to a Gateway laptop(M405) with Windows XP OS. How to unlock laptop?


The best way to do this is using the Offline NT Password & Registry editor.
You can download it at the following link:

This utility will enable you to reset the password of any user that has a valid (local) account on your Windows NT/2k/XP/Vista etc system.
The link above includes some directions on how to use this utility.

Tweak BIOS to install Windows XP


Shouldn't need any "tweaking". Not sure offhand on the c700, but manytimes the Compaq bios is limited (and I'm a Compaq user - servers, desktops & laptops). What is itexactly that you're trying to achieve? I replaced Vista on my F500 series first with XP and finally with Linux - no problems (other than initially finding drivers). Just make sure to download and build an XP driver disk beforehand and you won't have any problems.

Want to turn my server into a home pc motherboard 4000798


Hi,

You should be just fine with the existing BIOS. It should not affect anything with setting this up as a home PC.

I hope this helps clarify your problem,

I have two operating systems on my hard drive.


Hi,

You can manually disconnect the IDE/SATA cable temporarily from your motherboard (the one with NT PRO & XP HOME), then you can cleanly install a Windows XP on your new Hardisk. And after installing, you can re-connect the other hardrive on your computer and format it under your NEW Windows XP, be sure to set the BIOS BOOTUP sequence that you boot on the right drive.
