The gateway support web site only has one BIOS firmware and it appears to be for a Toshiba Samsung Storage Technology (TSST) DVD+/-RW Dual Layer Drive
As seen on this web page below.http://support.gateway.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=2809
That is NOT a motherboard BIOS, its for the DVD drive only!
Please be very cautious about downloading BIOS firmware from non-reputable web sites, that is a good way of getting a virus and flashing your BIOS chip with such can ruin your motherboard.
I can offer you one possible suggestion, try a web site to which I have used before to get BIOS firmware for motherboard, they were good to me when a flash failed to do the video going out during the flash, I was flashing with a floppy disk, I called them and told them what happend and they sent me a free BIOS chip which was already flashed with the newest BIOS release and I was able to keep the original floppy which contained the same BIOS that they sent me first.
Try this link http://biosagentplus.com/?ref=617
run the utility and it will tell you what BIOS is available for your motherboard. It does cost money to get the firmware or chip, but at least you have a guarantee it will work flawlessly or they will fix the problem for you for FREE!
Other than that, I do not see a trusted BIOS firmware release for your system on Gateway's web site, which is the only other web site I would trust.
