I was given a Gateway GS-233. I reinstalled the OS because the previous
owner deleted the HD. The owner gave me the software but now I need to
identify all the hardware so I can select the correct software to install. I
asked the original owner but he doesn't remember. I want to know everything
about this PC such as mother board, modem, sound card, HD. etc. How can I
identify the hardware? If needed please suggest a better NG for my question.
Thank you for your help.

You can try using the serial number at support.gateway.com - if that
doesn't bring up a list, you'll have to open the system and visually
inspect each component for its Gateway part number (usually on a
dot-matrix sticker affixed to each part) and then look up the details.

Thank you for your speedy reply. I did as you suggested and the site did
recognize the SN but I didn't find the list, I may not be seeing it, can you
tell me where to look for it?

There should be a "Go to my Support" link somewhere on the page.
