I'm afraid I can't really help with this.

The code you gave with the RAM is too big of a search.

What size of RAM is it? What type of speed is it?

I'll be able to check what the compatabilities are.

I found this worrying comment:

"Your Gateway E-6000 only supports modules made with a specific type of chip. Should you find what seems to be the exact same memory elsewhere for a lower price, it is very possible that the cheaper memory will not work in your computer."

This is what it showed up:

http://www.4allmemory.com/index.cfm?...emory_id=-9311

Look at that price... that can't be right...

More prices:

http://www.memoryx.net/gate6delmem.html

So I'm afraid, it seems the memory it uses is very selective
Thats probably why the stuff you bought doesn't boot it.

Notice all the memory listed on the website is made by Gateway themselves?

Hmm, the only other thing I can find that could be wrong then is the specced speed.

The website above states working chips of PC800.

Yet, the chips you bought in that auction were PC600 models.

That price is just terrible...

I'm afraid not. The motherboard is what controls what can go in it and what not. Ones made by manufacturers, like Gateway choose to be sometimes hardware specific, and tend to use cheaper parts that won't be universily compatable.

Sucks I know, but thats the thing about some pre-built models

Your basically looking for:

Maximum Memory 2GB (Thats the max you can go up to)

PC800-40 ECC RDRAM
