I need the manual of the Encore ZIF 1 Ghz processor...

Unfortunately, the manuals for these processors are no longer available. Apple discontinued this line of processors a few years ago. The most that has been available online, is mostly reviews and possibilities of purchasing the processors directly through 3rd party merchants and eBay.

Moniter problems

Hi, have you used the same motherboard in the two towers? sounds to me like you may have a couple of faulty capacitors on the board. Open the case and study the capacitors closely [with a magnifying glass if need be] capacitors fail very often when heated. they are the round components that sit in sets of 5, 6, or more in a row on the board. if any are bulging from the top or bottom, then its time for a new board.

Upgrade from 600 MHz to 1 GhZ

According to this review, you can upgrade as far as a 2 GHz P4-M at least;,1895,669029,00.asp Other than that, i have been unable to find the details of your motherboard - if you can post the make and model (should be printed on it somewhere) then I would hope to find a more complete list of compatible and incompatible processors. Gateway themselves no longer offer online info or support for this model, but the motherboard details should enable me to find out what you need to know. Waiting for your post :)
