I have a Gateway2000 PC (P5-90) that is nearly 7 years old. The system has been locking up on me continuously. I have been on the phone with Gateway numerous times and my problem has not gone away. Every tech I speak to tells me something different. The latest told me I need to upgrade my hard drive and RAM. I explained that I haven't done anything different to my PC, so why do I need to upgrade? Needless to say, I have been going round and round with these people for over a month. I would like to reformat my hard drive to get back to square one. Does anyone know of any books or online guides that can walk me through the steps? I have my original Gateway system CD that contains all of the drivers and Windows 3.1. Appreciate any help on this issue. If anyone out there could e-mail me at, I would sincerely appreciate it. Thank you!
