Have old Gateway GP6 350 tower. I am looking for a owners manual and what I need to do to uprade. Also, where is the harddrive located on these towers and what does it look like? Thank You for any help you...

If memory serves these little beasties were made in 1998-99.
Believe it used an Intel Pentium II 350MHz processor, that is the Slot 1 type.

It probably has an AOpen AXL6 motherboard, or a Chaintech 6LTM motherboard. Both use the Intel LX440 chipset.

This is all going by memory, as I haven't worked on one in years. I can find no supporting data to give you, as far as a User Guide. I can guide you to the best of my ability if you ask. Just post in a Comment.

Again, if memory serves,
To open the computer case;

1) Looking at the back of the computer. (Computer unplugged from power)
The case has a metal shell going around it. Resembles a U shaped hood, once it is removed.
(Upside down U)
Observe the metal case 'Hood'. Note how the sheet metal of the case hood, comes around the back.

2) There is an inch, (Finger digit), width of sheet metal that comes up each side, and across the top.
In the sheet metal on the sides, I believe there are two screws.
One towards the top, one towards the bottom.
These are removed.

3) There is one screw at the top, I believe. This screw is removed.
Now the hood is pulled away from the rest of the computer. Observing from the back, the hood is slid forward.
Sometimes this is tough to do.

You will have an IDE harddrive inside.
This example shows you what it looks like,

Computer case open. BEFORE you reach inside.
Computer unplugged from power.
TOUCH the metal frame of the computer case to relieve your body of Static.

Your body carries Static electricity. Static will fry out computer hardware components.
Computer unplugged from power, you are safe.
TOUCH the metal frame, your computer is safe.

(Should you get up for any reason, walk away, then return, Touch the metal frame again)

The following is with the utmost respect.

Why are you wishing to know where the harddrive is?
If you are wishing to replace it, it isn't that simple.
You will need a fresh genuine copy of Windows, in order to do so.
Also the Windows version that a Gateway GP6-350
computer is going to support, is Windows 98, or 98SE.
Do you have a Windows 98 disk?

Again, with the utmost respect, trying to upgrade your computer sir, is wasting your money.

There is no Processor upgrade possible. The Processor you have now is the best one for your computer.

The ram memory it uses, (I believe), is SDR Sdram.
(Commonly just referred to as Sdram)

Expensive stuff, in relation to how your money could be used for better computer parts, or computer.

Harddrive upgrade. There is probably a 3GB, 5GB, or 10GB harddrive inside.
Maximum upgrade in size would be around 40GB.

For the price of a larger harddrive, and an upgrade in ram memory, you could buy a better computer on Ebay. (Don't zap me, I'm only the messenger!)

Philips Ls1400 freevents pc. the clock time display is wrong. how do i fix this? also the standby button is not highlighted when i try to shutdown the pc, im usinf windows xp pro home edition. Any answers...

Try replacing the internal battery to fix the time problem. Make sure that you touch a metal part of the Tower chassis before touching any internals to avoid damage and discharge any static buildup.

Gateway FX400S power failure.

I think you are right. There is an overheating problem. The questions are, what is overheating and why?

Dust is the single most common cause of computers overheating. Dust on fan blades can reduce their cooling capacity by large amounts.

Dust can also cause premature failure in cooling fans. You may have a "dead" fan in there and you don't know it yet.

The trick for you would be (if I was investigating, this is what I would do) remove the cover (assuming this is a desktop or tower) and turn it on. From here you can visually see which fans are moving and which are not.

Exception is the power supply fan; which is sometimes inside the power supply casement.

A can of forced air may help here, but try not to breathe that stuff.

good luck

A person has locked my computer and nothing will let me log on. it says it has a restriction and i dont know why and i cant seem to fix it.

Sounds like someone tapered with your computer while you weren't looking lol

You may need to perform a system restore to get control back.

You can restore the system by placing your windows CD in the CDROM drive normaly drive D:

Restart the computer

Go to your BIOS

Make sure the boot sequence is set to

1st Boot Device - CDROM D:
2nd Boot Device - Primary HardDrive C:
3ed Boot Device - Floppy A:


then save and exit

restart the computer

you should see ( Windows is now starting your computer )

and the install process will begin.

once windows is installed and you've put your key in

you should go to the windows update site to download ALL critical updates and service packs

Then you'll want to load driver software for your computer,

Computer does not turn on, since i opened it

Not to worry...As you can see this is just a loose contact....Since you seem like a novice user attempting to fix it yourself is not advisable.Just get someone who knows electronics to fix it for you...
And one more thing dont touch any part inside the computer with bare hands.Walking on a dry floor will charge your body to a static voltage of upto 5000v and is more than enough to damage the motherboard...
For now just get someone to fix that power cable for you!
