I figured it out..........I had to FLASH the FOF8.P00 before I could Flash the Targa FOF9.P00 BIOS....for some reson, having the 52.00.00 BIOS would'n't let me Upgrade to the Targa BIOS, I know that sound strange, but, that is what was happeneing. also, without having the 52.00.00 BIOS I don't have the Brightness Fuction in the BIOS anymore, it works on the keyboard, by pressing the fn button and tapping the f7 or f8 key's other than that, everything works GREAT, lappy is very quite, it even runs @ 2GHZ on Battery rather than 800MHZ...I'm a little confused here? I talked with GATEWAY support & was Told that my 52.00.00 BIOS that shipped with my 7405GX is the same as the NS. BIOS, so now I'm really confused, I thought that F0F.BIOS and NS. BIOS weren't compatable, but gateway has infromed me that on some models( produced after 2005) when Gateway bought out all of the Eamchine laptop PC lines, Gateway changed some things for the better.............humm? wonder what that means?...........when I ask for a BIOS update for my 7405GX I was told that we don't do BIOS updates on discontiued models, so I take it that meant a big-FAT-NO, but I could go find something compatable on the web, but it would VOID MY WARRANTY...then I was told, that since my 7405GX was purchased form TigerDirct.com as a REFURBISHED, that They wouldn't cover any Warranty anyway?
