Question about Gateway E-2000 Deluxe PC Desktop

1 Answer

Hard Drives I had an extra hard drive installed in this machine, for storage space, and I've lost access to it. The new drive was designated as F:. I was trying to re-partition the drives on the main disk (C:) to merge D: and E:. In the process the floppy drive was renamed F:. Now I can't figure out how to access the new hard drive and add it to the partitions on the C: drive. The guy who installed the new hard drive had to setup a network path (I think) and I would like to do that, or whatever it takes to gain access to this extra hard drive with all my records on it. This drive came from a Micron Millenia Lxa (or Lxr) with Intel Pentium for Windows 95. It was installed in the cabinet of my Gateway 2000 GP6-233 with Intel Pentium II running Windows 98

You might need to upgrade a few hardware items first also you might upgrade to vista then windows 8
Creating a new partition on your hard drive gives your future version of Windows 8 a place to live on your drive.
Knowing exactly how much space the OS requires helps you determine how large to make your partition.
Size requirements don't tell the entire story on their own, though.
Other factors like drive type and additional storage help ensure you get the best Windows 8 experience where your hard drive is concerned.

Size Requirements

Both Windows 7 and Windows 8 have the same system requirement regarding hard drive space, so if your hard drive can handle Windows 7, Windows 8 shouldn't be a problem.
For 32-bit versions of the operating system, you'll need at least 16 GB of available disk space. The 64-bit version requires 20 GB.
Your partition will have to be at least one of these sizes, depending on your OS version.
The PC Advisor website warns that these are literally the bare minimum requirements, and using these figures leaves you hardly any space to save files and install apps or programs.
Size Recommendations
You'll get more out of Windows 8 if the operating system has enough free space for you to install your favorite programs and apps.
PC World calls this extra space "breathing room," suggesting you give your Windows 8 partition at least 30 to 40 GB.
If you're dual-booting with another operating system or you're accustomed to keeping excess data on a separate partition, 30 to 40 gigabytes should be fine.
If you'd rather have all your songs, videos and PC games on the same partition as the operating system, consider giving it substantially more space.
Solid State Drive
Windows 8 works on traditional hard drives with spinning disks, but it's optimized to run on a solid state drive.
If you've got an SSD, consider putting your Windows 8 partition on that drive.
While any operating system benefits from the speed increase an SSD brings, ARS Technica specifically recommends this drive type for Windows 8, saying the operating system's "tablet-esque feel and search-heavy usage model will be much better served by solid-state storage."
Other Requirements
Hard drive space is a crucial system requirement, but others are just as important.
Ensuring your computer meets the other requirements before partitioning your drive for Windows 8 saves trouble in case your computer can't handle the OS.
You'll need at least a 1 GHz processor that support PAE, SSE2 and NX.
Your computer has to have at least 1 GB of RAM for 32-bit Windows 8, or 2 GB for 64-bit.
Your graphics card must be at least a DirectX 9-capable card with a WDDM driver. Also, while you're formatting your drive, format the Windows 8 partition in the NTFS format.
Storage Spaces
Storage Spaces is a useful Windows 8 feature when you're working with multiple drives and partitions.
The tool enables you to group drives into one larger storage space so you don't have to constantly switch partitions and explore different drives.
For example, if you create a storage space between two 32 GB flash drives, you'd be able to access it as if it were one larger 64 GB drive.

Two of my Fantom external hard drives do not work. The lights come on, but one makes a clicking sound and the other one no sound. I've checked the power pack and that is not the problem. I don'


Are the drives still under warranty or not? All drives will fail.

If they aren't, break open the case and put the drives into new enclosures or place them in a desktop (if you have extra IDE or SATA connectors available) as secondary drives. You may need adapters if these are portable drives. This will let you see if the enclosure has failed or the drive itself. The one that is clicking may not be usable (clicking usually means a head problem). However, you should be able to recover files. You may need to use a file recovery program, like Recuva, if the drive has lost the partition information.

I hope this helps. If the drives are under warranty, decide if you want to void your warranty. The data will not be recovered under warranty with most external drives.

(I've replaced several hard drives when they went bad. By cloning the drive before it fails, I haven't lost data. I've also attempted to rescue data after the failure. I try to back up important data to optical discs as well as flash drives and backup HDDs.)

Can i delete some things on my cpu once i use this maxtor,or what is this for i got it with not to many instructions.i thought it would make my computer faster


External harddrives like this one are not by any means designed to make your computer faster, they are simply extra storage space you can use either to store more stuff, or to keep a backup copy of the important things you don't want to lose if your computer every dies.

These drives in essence are like adding an extra file cabinet to the office.

If you want to make your computer faster reply back here with Make & Model if it's a brand name, if it's a custom tower then reply back with CPU, RAM, Motherboard Make and Model for each and I will do my best to give you some pointers.

Add Memory In Compaq Deskpro 6000 P2 Shuttle PC?


No, it is in the actual box which contains the power button. You'll need to open that box and take a peek inside. You will see something similar (not exactly the same) to what is depicted in this picture. Now, in your particular instance one or two of the slots will be occupied by memory-sticks.

That is where your memory will be inserted to add extra RAM. Now we need to find out what type of memory you have right now, because we will need to match it. Download this utility and install it onto your computer. Afterward open up the area for system-memory (Or RAM) and determine what type of memory you have. Is it DDR, DDR2, or some other type? Once again, we will want to try to match the speed, type, and possibly even the brand to ensure the RAM will work with your system.

Once you have that information head online to this website. Once it loads navigate to Computer Hardware>Memory. On the left select, "Desktop Memory." Afterward use the, "Guided Search" to narrow your search to the type that is in your system, that way you're looking at memory types that your system supports aiding you ever so greatly in your choice.

Now just to clarify. This will increase the system-memory not storage-space. With storage-space I mean a hard-drive which contains all your files, personal data, and the Operating System in your computer. If you want more storage-space we will need to buy you a new hard-drive. This won't be as difficult, we just need to know if you have ATA or SATA. Most likely you have ATA since your computer appears to be oldler, so I would recommend a Seagate ATA hard-drive from this website. Once the website loads navigate to Computer Hardware>Hard Drives. Afterward, on the left under, "Hard Drives" select, "Internal Hard Drives." Afterward on the left under, "Guided Search" select the, "Interface" type, "IDE Ultra ATA100." Afterward make a pick on a hard-drive that has the storage space you're after. (The only seagate doesn't have a lot of space, so the ultimate decision is up to you.)

So get back to us with your choice along with the information on your RAM and hard-drive types and we'll let you know if you made a good decision.
