Did the whole thing make a sound / LED's flashed? Or stood still like a rock?
If you can describe the problem, maybe people can help you here in the comments
I'm actually on the same mission as you are. I have an old-ass PC (10 years old) and it lacks some components. I need to get a PSU and a second network card for it. I want it to run a firewall Linux distribution - it'll become a hardware firewall & proxy server.
well I've been trying to upgrade the CPU in our oldest running PC in the house, from a 2.4Ghz, to a 3Ghz (it's proclaimed maximum). I did an Awesome job putting thermal paste on it, only to realize it didn't work. Well, to be honest I don't know if the CPU is bad, or if the motherboard just doesn't support it. bleh.
I emailed Gateway tech support. Maybe they can help. I should update my Bios... maybe that'd help!
