    Regarding my HD size/motherboard question... I thought the max size HD was limited to the bios?

    Here are the specs for your motherboard seeing as how they don't list any limitations I would venture to guess there are none. But if you want to make absolutely sure I would call Gateway.

    I goggled the motherboard and got those same specs before I posed the question. The HD size limitation is not listed on any of the motherboards I looked at. Calling Gateway is a waste of time... all you get is someone from Pakistan reading from a script. So I would venture to say that my question is still not answered.
    Thanx anyway.

I need to set up RAM on GATEWAY ATXAEG LX3 700S P04 for first time. What is the correct placement of RDRAM.

RDRAMs have to be installed in pairs (at least in my case I think) but can the two pairs be of different capacity? as in:
64,64 - 256,256
(Upgrading 2 64mb RDRAM to 2 256mb RDRAM)

Gateway series 300 with 4000783 moBo, no visual

Gateway are most likely wrong. These Gateway cp's usually have a motherboard failure which stops the cpu socket working, replacing the motherboard is a far cheaper option than buying a new pc, restore windows using my rstore disk which uses your registered version of XP. You could put the hdd in a dell computer, set the jumper omn the back to secondary master or slave of either the primary master ( C:\) or the secondary master.Then copy the files you wnt to an external source or the dell pc.

Computer not working

This is usually a problem with memory, either video memory or ram. Try another good ram first, if nothing changes, then try a different video card.

Good luck and hope this solves your problem.
