Yes I've looked my best (which isin't very good) and i found nothing that plainly said "You can now upgrade your CPU"..i've updated my BIOS and Chipset (?) with the latest they have.

  1. better check the Gateway product support page for your system and see if they ever released a BIOS update to facilitate that dual core. you might be out of luck.
  2. You'll have to check with Gateway on what CPUs their latest BIOS version supports. There might be a "CPU support list" or similar at their website that lists which CPUs are compatible with which MBs.
