|SDD is a complex error in misunderstanding repeatedly misquoted until it no longer looks anything like it started out to be.|
He said super drive - he meant to say Super Disk which is a LS 120 Super Disk floppy drive option for this model that barely worked right when NEW. I consider it about the largest non-event that ever happened. Who was he going to trade these floppies with?
He also said Dell Machine - it's Gateway. Now it might have a Dell sticker on it but who's fault is that? An actual legacy machine would have 98 drivers for it and this one didn't ever have those. XP yes, 98 no.
I have an old Sony camera that uses standard floppies, they are in/out readable with any decent 3.5 floppy drive. It even sets up an html page to view the .jpg pictures with on the floppy. Resolution stinks of course.
It's a BIOS password deal with possible dual/default Gateway password but you'll need to send it in to have it cleared back to none state if you don't want to spend you days playing guessing games like 9300Pro or 9300PRO or PASSWORD or... Or one can try to remove the CMOS battery and the main battery overnight and even throw a hard drive at it if those two don't work. Some say it can't be done, others say I did it.
