Yeah I contacted MR. BIOS and they said they have the XP BIOS for my Gateway MX6447 Notebook, it cost 29 bucks, but, they will send me out a Floppy disc, they also said that they have a lotta complaints & problems with Vista ..........They can't help me Downgrade my BIOS
I'm really screwed here and need some help in locating my Gateway MX6447's Original BIOS 84.04 exe. if any of you here has THIS Please PM me , all I need is the 84.04 exe BIOS Bin file TO FIX THIS PROBLEM in XP...................also PLEASE read below:
Here's some advice, DON'T Upgrade your MX644X to the VISTA BIOS, I did this, and XP won't run anymore, the ATI xpress 1150 3D function no longer works, and it crashes ,and BSOD, due to having a Vista BIOS, so Now I'm screwed, and cannot EVER run XP anymore, unless, I can somehow find the orginal BIOS that shipped w/ my notebook, Gateway won't help me, and they say, it's my fault, they don't have the old XP BIOS, and that they no longer support XP anymore. they want to sell me a New Motherboard for $344 to FIX THIS, and told me, that this isn't covered under my Warranty!!!
If I could turn-back-time, to when I did this Vista BIOS update I would, so, I'm NEVER gonna be able to run XP anymore, I'm stuck with Vista wheater I like it or not, just some advice for you to know..............if anyone of you have the old 84.04 XP BIOS, PLEASE host this file for me, so that I can FIX THIS.......the problem with this, is the motherboard Vendor is Over Seas, (Taiwan) and they don't even have a website for me to get this Old BIOS from, so if any of you do update to the Vista 84.06 BIOS, Please SAVE your old XP 84.04 BIOS, so that I can get this form you, I would be FOREVER GRATEFULL!!!!
