Let's start with the model number of your Gateway. It's doubtful you can swap the motherboard from another system, but if you provide some details (Make, Model#) we'll check it out.
We'll assist in transfering data from your old system when we get to that point.

Thanks for the speedy reply. Our tower says LPMINITOWER model#GP6-450. have access to LP MINI TOwer Model#G6-350. These were used in an office, may be bigger than ours. Theres also the possibility of several more coming up tp to system upgrades.

Like admin said if we can get the system up and running we can help you get your info. off the other hard drive thats in the gateway G6-450. here is the info. on the gateway G6-350 Click Here
I'm looking in to this to see if the parts can be changed out to one other.

The only difference I notice between these motherboards is the onboard graphics. The G6-450 had 16MB of memory, while the G6-350 only had 8MB. Don't plan on playing any games, or running at high resolutions unless you install a different video card.
Bad News... Swapping motherboards does require a decent knowledge of computer components (identification), and there are bound to be a couple snags along the way. If you think you're up to the challenge, I can direct you to a couple sites that may help.
