Upgrade hard drive

Specs for a Hard Drive


Anything you have should fit in there, you will have to upgrade the operating system, but the hard drive shouldn't be a problem so long as the computer is new enough to auto configure the hard drive.

Need to load xp on gateway


Do you have a full installation disc or an Upgrade version of XP? The full install should give you an option for partitioning and formatting the new hard drive as part of the installation process. From Microsoft, read this page for details:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/313348 . You may need some additional drivers if you have a SATA hard drive. More screen shots and details are here: http://www.theeldergeek.com/hard_drives_03.htm .

An alternative way of dealing with the problem may be to use a third-party Partition Manager software (Symantec's Partition Magic, Paragon's Partition Manager). Paragon's site is
http://www.partition-manager.com/ . This site has various levels of Partition Management software (with different features available in the more expensive versions). You'll need the bootable CD version of the software (recovery disc, .iso) to do the partitioning.

I hope this helps.

(I thought the upgrade version could also be done to a new hard disc including the partitioning; all you needed was a Win OS disc from an earlier version to prove qualifying ownership.)

I need to know what are my options if i want to upgrade my gateway 500gr. Mamory, video card, power supply? what else can i do?


If your computer is more than 4 years old and you want a faster computer with a high end graphics card for games, RAM and larger hard disk and Windows 7, then I would seriously consider buying a new computer. You don't need to purchase a new monitor (keep your existing one), this will reduce the costs.
An upgraded old computer would not be as good as a new one, when you consider the costs and time involved with replace hardware and installing Windows on a larger hard drive, device drivers and programs etc.

Hard disk upgrade for Gateway mx7118


check Gateway's support for possible help here. Most laptops can be upgraded substantially, RAM or Hard drive.

Gateway's site- I didn't see any BIOS upgrades. http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/search.asp?ref=step&st=browse&platform=10022&model=10651&os=&type=

Perhaps someone on this site has made such an upgrade and can give you a definitive answer.
