As previously mentioned a few weeks ago, I bought a Gateway 2000 on eBay a few weeks ago and ran into all sorts of issues. Decided to just replace it with a Socket 7 motherboard and build from there. It’s all done now. There’s nothing Gateway about this, except for the floppy drive, case and PC speaker. Reused the case and here are the rest of the specs:

FIC PT-2003 Socket 7 Motherboard
Pentium 133MHz (just like the Gateway 2000 I grew up with)
64MB SIMM RAM
3.5" floppy drive
40X IBM CDROM
420MB Conner 3600RPM hard drive
MS-DOS 6.22 + Windows for Workgroups 3.11
Matrox Mystique 220 4MB PCI video card
YAMAHA Audician32 YMF-719 S ISA sound card
3COM 3C905-TX PCI ethernet card
Serial port card for my serial trackball (the original serial ports designed for a Gateway 2000/Micronics 486 board uses different pinouts)
