I am not sure of the rest of the specs yet. Still looking. The main questions I have are;
Where do I find a compatible hard drive and I am not sure if my nephew has all the discs that came with the pc so I can reformat the new drive. Where do I get them? I heard Gateway can be jerks about getting replacement discs.
I know I can copy all of the applications and drivers to a disc, but have never done that.
He told me the hard drive does work but it takes about 30 minutes for it to start spinning.
I know this is a really nice gaming pc (at least in 2002 it was) and it was FREE!!
I am what you would call an experienced novice. I should also be able to go to Gateway and download some of the drivers but first I have to get her up and running to see what is in it. Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated. As far as the actual replacement of the HD I have a really cheap, but very good computer geek friend who will do it if it,s too complicated. All the rest I can do. Thanks
