    I have a Gateway G6-233, slot 1, I have a 500mhz slot 1 processor that I would like to put in it but can't find much on the motherboard to see if it is possible. the motherboard is Gateways part number 4000286, the website says it is a AST PII, the bios is 4A4LLOXO, Chip set 440LX. If you could just direct me to where I can get some information on the motherboard and if the latest bios upgrade will allow the upgrade I would apprciate it.
    Thank you

    thanks for your reply, I got the s/n and the Gateway site didn't say if the last bios update changed the max processor that could be used but I found another site where a person said that the latest bios only supported the 333mhz so gave up on trying to upgrade it.
    thanks again
