Specs: windows 7 SP1, core2duo 2.13/4gb
I have completed a clean install of windows 7 SP1. after updating windows, I tried to update the bios from gateway's support site. I get the error message "this program is unable to continue. internal system error, there is a programming or internal problem."
what do I do about this?
thanks

Possibly a hardware issue. Is there a specific reason you wish to update BIOS as it is rarely necessary and can write off the motherboard if it goes wrong?

i solved it myself. the bios wouldn't flash in windows 7. i switched to the xp harddrive and the flash was successful.
