Now does anyone have the original 94.26 bios that shipped with the laptop?

I called gateway, and they said that it will be on the site in a "few" weeks.
The old one throttles the GPU too. But this isnt the BIOS I dont think.

I had to disable powermizer to get the GPU to not throttle down.

I know that most people are just tring to help. But gateway did do something to this bios because I overclock by 7% now and never done this before always ran my t9300 at 12.5x multiplier now it is going to 13.5x and causing problems for xp and vista install! Had the same issue with the T7300 with original bios multiplier was incorrect. I would greatly appreciate someone emailing me the original bios so I can get back to gaming. Thanks to all.

Two questions:

1)Anyone know if you can disable the screen from shutting off when I close the lid. I only want to do this because for example, if I shut the screen while playing FFXI, it will occasionally cause FFXI to crash when I open the screen back up. Not always, but some of the time.

2)Anyone know if there is a car laptop charger for this thing? I know the current power supply is 120W and most car laptop chargers are only 90W.

1. Yea, go into Control Panel, Power Options and then Advanced. There is a tab in there to select what the computer does when the lid is shut.

2. Radio Shack has some 150w inverters for 40 bucks...
