    Let's see........well can't be of much help without motherboard type, ram type?? Did you check your mobo and what type of Ram is compatible? Are you using the same and not mixing? i.e. all PC100/PC133/DDR2100 and not something like PC100/PC133, PC133/DDR2100............Post what motherboard and Ram you have, but I bet your board manual will tell you if you have the right stuff or not...

    Check your BIOS to see if there are any settings for RAM timings, ensure these are set to normal or safe or SPD..(CAS latency should be higher than CL2). problems can arise if people try to "overclock their pc's by cranking up the timings on standard RAM modules.

    Well with it being PC100, I'm sure it isn't an issue, but you'll have to make sure that Gateway doesn't have specific types to use and that what you have is designed to run with your pc. Using something not recommended could create issues. I know Compaq is/was that way, couldn't just use any over the counter Ram, had to be specific. Another possibility on your motherboard is to check the Gateway website under the model you have. You might be able to get the motherboard specs, if not try Belarc Advisor. It will give you a detailed breakdown of what you have on your system. Install it, run it and check out the results, should tell you the motherboard type along with just about anything else about your devices, software, etc.....
