I am trying to find a BIOS update (or if none, the original version) to
reflash a corrupted system. The Gateway Web site does not list this model.
(Oddly it jumps right over it.) I found an Intel download for the D850GB
motherboard but it won't work.

If anyone knows where I might find it, I'd appreciate a link.

Performance 1400
Gateway E-4600 4000725
Board: Intel Corporation D850GB AAA49507-903
Serial Number: IMGB12518437 (per utility readout)
Serial Numer on case: 0024568585

CURRENT BIOS: Intel Corp. GB85010A.15A.0028.P09.0103091412 03/09/2001

"Corrupted?" What are the symptoms of this?

If the motherboard BIOS is truly hosed and the system won't even display
anything on its screen, then the BIOS needs to be flashed in "BIOS
recovery mode". Most Intel-designed motherboards have a BIOS recovery
jumper. IIRC, the D850GB as made for Gateway differs from the generic
version only in the BIOS flashed onto it... Ben Myers

Thanks. I have since found it at Gateway and was able to reflash.
(The problem was a peculiar malfunctioning of LBA addressing.)
