  1. I'm pretty sure if I could update bios on this thing it would work, but I cant figure out what to do with it.
  2. I've never used linux before, that's the whole reason I'm doing this. I want to try it out.
  3. It wont boot from the ssds, I have to put the old hard drive in it too boot. From there i can access the cloned ssd. Bios doesnt see the ssds to boot, only the hard drive
  4. I found this laptop in an old storage building I cleaned out, I bought it around 11 years ago and it is working but the harddrive is going bad. I decided on turning it into a fuel boot windows 10 / primarily linux machine. I bought 2 ssds for it as it holds 2. Problem is bios doesnt see the ssds, but windows does. I tried downloading a bios update but for the life of me cant figure out how to install it (the instructions don't make any sense). Please help.
  5. Ok so new problem. The ssds I bought are not being detected by bios.
  6. Doesnt work with windows 7, I'm not for sure why, but it overheats like crazy on 7. No problems with vista or 10.
  7. Well instead of windows 10/linux/windows xp 64 I would do vista instead.
  8. I mean I can go back to vista, but I think that would suck too lol.
  9. It's a old gateway p173xl fx. I want to turn it into a linux and windows 10 machine. I've got 2 240 GB SSDs on the way (it can hold 2 drives). It only has 4gb of ram (that's max supported). I would like to play some old games on it, any idea what I can play? (like best graphics games). Also how should i go about linux as I've never used it before? I went ahead and put windows 10 on it, seems to run ok at best. I got this laptop 11 or 10 years ago. Also any idea how to boost the speed of this thing other than a ssd?
  10. Does anyone know of a uv/black light led strip that connects to the rgb header, and is magnetic? I cant find one anywhere.
  11. I have to have a touch screen, but I'd still be happy with a gtx 1660ti or something.
  12. Yeah I saw that, but it doesnt come with a touch screen. Only the 4k version does.
