- Gateway Solo 9100 BIOS update needed

in 1998/1999 has eventually got some bad sectors. I would like to
replace it but the smallest HDD are 40GB, which it doesn't recognise,
8GB seems the limit.
I have been trying to find an update for the BIOS which according to
the BIOS Setup is a PhoenixBIOS NoteBIOS ver 4.0 and the BIOS number
is 8.40. All searches have lead nowhere even on Gateway's website.
Does anybody know where I can get an update for the BIOS?
Should I just get a new laptop?
Re: Gateway Solo 9100 BIOS update needed
The Solo 9100 series was limited to an 8MB HD. If the latest BIOS
revision ends in **38 or **40, that was the latest available. Note that
the mainboard in the Solo 9100 was developed for Win95 and BIOS updates
were for issues with Win98 (not Win98SE). AFIK, there were no BIOS
updates for Win2k either.
