    I just cannot believe a gateway would have that much trouble.... it's plausible but c'mon.... after they replaced every part? Strange how these problems come up after he brings it home. LOL

    I'd be a little wary of this guy if I were a small time comp store.


    I thought if you opened the case on your own, you voided the warranty to begin with???? Am I mistaken about that?

    The question I have is what could have been in an 850 MHz computer in 2000 that would make it worth $4000. You should have been able to put every bell and whistle on a system then for less than $1500.

    And that's just starting so I think this guy was treated wrong.They should have given him a new system.The Motherboard might have been shorting out on the chassis you never know.
    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
