Gateway MT3705 Laptop CMOS reset, OS & CPU “Upgrade”
 
We will go through CMOS reset from a mistake made in BIOS setting. Replacing Vista with Windows XP and how about upgrading the CPU while it is so inexpensive at eBay. Let´s call this a double “upgrade” and fixing a fatal BIOS mistake made..

Do you think you could pin mod the CPU strapped at 133MHz?

Sidney 3rd December 2007 19:50

Should have ask earlier before I put the darn pieces back :) Or, I should have thought of it. :D

Next time when I could get another cheapo T7200 or T2400, although I am sure if the pin mod would work on 479 pin. It is at 166FSB now.

I'ts fun reading this review, Sidney, although it ain't motivating me to open my laptop to try the same :D

Another reader wrote to me on the SD card reader, the TI driver works for him. Gateway now has posted TI 2.0.0.6 driver http://support.gateway.com/support/d...&param=1008547

However, MX3702 and MT3705 (the one I am using) are using Realtek. Gateway is using at least two vendors in both wireless PCI and USB card readers. Media card reader = Texas Intrument or Realtek; Wireless PCI = Broadcom or Realtek. Realtek support sucks insofar I know.

It still does not work here. :(

helpful hints
 
there are two settings in the bios that would help if you turned them on or up; first make sure your ram is running at the right speed, and second, change the hard drive 32bit bus on. that and powerstrip can oc the xpress 200m

Those were part of BIOS settings done at the getgo; like all overclocking checklist. :D

just asking because the only difference between what you got and what i get for 3d03 is only different by 18 marks(i have an ml3109, cel m520, 1gb ram 667mhz); about the only other thing that could account for the difference is the omega 7.12 drivers

ps.that 3d03 for the original cpu you had in the laptop
