I think that the best thing to do is to contact Gateway Customer Support.
I dont know anything on this motherboard as it is an OEM board.
All the best,
Baemanuel: I see your post about a new DG33SXG2 on ebay or skyline engineering. What did you replace it with? I see Intel Quads but they seem to vary in price and description. What would I be looking for? I have a Gateway GT5628 and the motherboard has a component that is not compatible with Win7. Is it hard to replace a motherboard? If I keep spending money, I could just buy a new computer.
This is what a scan says I have The above model with 2 quad dpuQ6600 @ 2.4oGHz Cpu Socket socket 775 LGA.
I have this same board.
A quad CPU 2.4 giga hertz.
I have upgraded to windows 7 from windows vista, both home premium.
Now it is saying that I can not install the drivers for Intel management engine interface. I have downloaded this driver and attempted to install it, but It simply refuses to install it.
Also, I do not have drivers for " PCI simple communication controller" I have tried to download drivers for this and it installs, later I go back to it and it says none are installed.
I like a fast computer and that is why I bought this one.
Fewer hours waiting mean more hours doing.
My performance rating on the CPU and memory after I installed windows 7 were both rated at: 7.1, now they are 4.3 and 5.0.
I put in a VelociRaptor drive in to speed up the hard drive. and it is the slowest part of the system.
This western digital hard drive is supposed to have 3 gbs transfer speed, but it is just slightly faster than the stock hard drive.
I have a Gateway GM5643E with the same motherboard the DG33sxg2 with a Quad core 6600 and I would like to upgrade my videocard and my memory to DDR3 memory bars and a DDR3 videocard. But I don't know if the motherboard can run DDR3 since there are DDR2 bars inside it at the moment and my videocard is a MSI NX8600GT working on DDR2. I can't find anything on the net that tells me if this board can run on DDR3...Thank you in advance
