Hello,

Unfortunately notebook PCs can't be upgraded like desktop PCs can. Each model can only use that specific motherboard. The full specs for your notebook can be found here: http://support.gateway.com/s/Mobile/Gateway/M305CRV/3501715sp58.shtml This shows that that board can use either a Celeron processor or a Pentium 4 Mobile processor, both need to be the 100mhz buss speed versions. If you have the Celeron model notebook you can gain a little speed by replacing the chip and going to the Pentium 4 chip but it still will not be up to current notebook speeds because of the 100mhz buss speed of the board. Your best bet would be sell the laptop and get a new one. You an catch one on sale at Office Depot, Staples or Best Buy for about $400. You should be able to sell your unit for $150-250 and then put what you were going to use for a motherboard and you will be about at the price of a new one.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

What if the fan is running and the air way is clean, lots of hot air blows out and my comp. and it shuts down every 5 or 10 mts. Could it be the cpu? or is there other device known to cause this...


The most probable cause is your Processor gets Overheated and causes restart to your system. Try having a suitable CPU Fan or go for a compatibility checking issue for your Motherboard and Processor.

Replacing dvd/cd-rom drive on gateway laptop


Depends - what gateway? the one you listed under?? Because the model you posted with already came with a DVD drive.

Reply with the model of your machine and i can probably find you help. Gateway usually has instructions on their site.

The instructions for the M305CRV are here.

That model can use pretty much any standard laptop CD if you dont mind the face not matching get a generic drive like the Sony CRX880a at

You can replace any motherboard, so long as your processor and memory are compatable and it fits into your case.

Upgrade from 600 MHz to 1 GhZ


According to this review, you can upgrade as far as a 2 GHz P4-M at least; http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1895,669029,00.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 :)

I want to know if I can upgrade the harddrive and memory


Depending on the memory you already have you can install upto a maximum of 1GB 266MHZ DDR, and cannot see any reason for not being able to upgrade your hardrive for a bigger one, but be aware that the Operating system backup will probably be on a seperate partition on your current hardrive, unless you got an installation cd with your laptop.
