RAM upgrade for Gateway model MFATXNIN NMZ 300L?

I need to upgrade my client's RAM on an older Gateway desktop, model #: MFATXNIN NMZ 300L.

To save me a 30 mile trip just to open up the machine and look, does anyone know what type of RAM this machine requires (PC133, PC2100, etc), as well as the maximum amount of RAM that can be installed?

I can't seem to find any memory-related info on this model anywhere. Any help or info will be much appreciated.

best,
JohnB

    thanks for the info, leecom.

    Just to clarify: so as far as you know, this machine will take up to 2x512MB, but you're saying it *may* require a BIOS update in order to do so?

    Then I guess my next challenge is to find the BIOS update on Gateway's labyrinthine Web site. I can't find any downloads for that machine by model number, but I suppose I can search by serial number instead.

    thanks again,
    JohnB

Hi,
The system takes PC133 SDRAM, as far as i know without performing a BIOS flash it can take up to 1GB (2x512MB) most of these PC's are restricted to 2x256 so a BIOS flash could be imminent in this case.


Good luck

    Hi John,
    Ask the customer to check his/her bios version by doing this >>>>>>

    Click on Start \ Run… and in the run box type msinfo32 and press OK.

    Or you can do this yourself when you get to the job, once you have your BIOS version just search the internet or Gateway support site for an update.


    Good luck

Hello John,

www.kingston.com has info on that model but there are 4 series to choose and they all take different memory. Your model type is 300L but you will also need to know the cpu type. If you can get your customer to give you the serial number, then you can go to www.gateway.com and get detailed info on the exact machine.

If this machine is running XP, beware. It is no longer supported, and hackers will be looking for these machines to infect. I recommend you get a newer machine.

I cant find drivers for a mfatxnin nmz 300. it can not use the ethernet to get online, because i dont have drivers. but i cant get drivers unless i get on line. where can i find drivers to save then...


Hi, you can try this site here:

http://www.mpcdrivers.com/apps/filelist300LS.html

You can also look inside the case for the
mainboard manufacturer and the mb number
and seach for the driver elsewhere.

I think its a intel mainboard
seach for drivers here:

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/

Just type in the mainboard number and click on seach.

The gateway support site is here:

I have a clients gateway pc model # (GM) MFATXNIN NMZ 500L s/n 0028350194. The m/b p/n is intel 4000792 I need the drivers for this pc badly


See: http://support.gateway.com/support/supinfo/index.asp?pg=2&file=mpcprod.html

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.

How do I open the case on a gateway (GM) MFATXNIN NMZ 300L ?


There's a security screw on the back that needs to be removed to allow the front latch to release the side panel. It's the stupidest most confusing case ever. The latch is very hard to see, it's part of the black plastic in the front, just push down on things until you see one move a bit. It's sort of like a car door handle movement.
