I've had this one for about 3 weeks now. Fixed the screen flicker. Fixed overheating (pulled and cleaned HS and used ArcticSIlver 5). Put in a WDScorpio Blue 250 eide drive for boot (128gb obviously). XP SP3 Home w/o Gateway setup. upgeade to 2x1gb sodimm. I love it sufficiently that I am now secure cleaning my desktop for sale.
The DVD writer is slow. I have tried several external units LG GP08, and a Sammy internal unit used externally with a usb/sata adapter and external power) but little difference - am I missing something? I have had good success connecting a 3.5 internal externally...
Also, is there a better bios for this?
