The Gateway E-3000 can only support up to 66Mhz SDRAM 256mb. Putting anything else you will get an error and you will be not be able to do anything else till you remove the extra memory.

As for sound the easiest to do for a computer that old is buy a sound dongle (circa $5.00)
sound card and memory - a874fba.jpgdb7d575.jpg Just put in any USB port, and you have sound (pretty good also, I have used these in the past and found to very reliable)

I have a Gateway tower (gt5026e) with an Intel mobo (E210882). I recently upgraded the video and purchased a pcie nvidia card. I knew I would need a new power supply (300w wasn't acceptable for the card)...


you may have dislodged something as you carried out the upgrade - Check all the cables are seated correctly - also check the memory is correctly seated does the machine bleep at all this will give an indication of what the problem may be ------ the number and pattern of the bleeps
the next step would be to remove all unnecessary devices, like the CD , DVD , spare drives - getthe machine to a minimum state of just PSU, MOBO, CPU, Memory, harddrive, graphics and see if that boots
also as you have upgraded the video card can you put the old one back in....

How do I install a 2g stick of memory into gt5408 ? What nvidia video card can I use to upgrade from the Intel graghics card for around $100. ? Thanks in advance for your responses !


Gateway GT5408/H has 4 slots for memory. Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300 or DDR2 PC2-6400 with a maximum of 1GB per slot. It will not support a 2GB stick.

ZOTAC GeForce 9600GT Eco 512MB cards are about that range and give you a good warranty as well.

My gateway desktop will not start. I am getting


Time for an upgrade my friend. Unfortunately sounds like your bios chip went bad. This happens sometimes and there is nothing you may have done. And unfortunately with a system that old you will be better off upgrading to a new computer.

Constant restarts after upgrading memory to 512 on 300 gateway


The first place i would look -- check the new memory, make sure its the correct type and voltage for your motherboard. Next, check to make sure your ram are both the same speed, voltage , etc. some motherboards are picky about memory types and some require that paired memory be installed.
Reseat (remove and replace) the memory in it's slot, poorly seated memory can cause restarts or no-starts. try these and post again here if you need further assistance.

Dell Dimension 3000 PC Desktop Burned Out w/Memory Upgrade


Is the video card built into the motherboard? If not you can try replacing just the video card to see if that works. Otherwise I am afraid you may have to replace the motherboard.
