Answers :

You would want to check the system specs. on the ammount of memory each socket will hold and timming specs.
\015\012Your unit know has 256mb of DDR RAM and may hold as mush as 4 Gb.
\015\012Check the upgrade specs. and try to purchase the fastest DDR you can find for it. Keep in mind, do not try to use the 256mb memory you have installed, as your new memory will have faster timming and speed sets.
\015\012Next, the mother board is fixed but you may want to check and see if their are BIOS updates, which may also speed things up for you.
\015\012
\015\012If you are going to order a new hard drive, you again, may want to check the specs. and instead of a standard 5400 rpm drive, you may want to use a 7200rpm. The cost may be alittle more but the speed will make up for that in the long run.!
\015\012Last of all, try to purchase Knew parts and not from Dell. Anything you need can be found on Ebay or others.
\015\012
\015\012Also, looking over your data, I see you asked about the power meter. You can download a small utility to give you digital readouts of the battery when in use.
\015\012Hope this info has helped you.
\015\012Sounds like you know what you are doing. Have fun. !!!

CPU overheating I was wondering if anyone knew about any cpu overheating problems with the gateway MT3422. I have read several articles on this issue, and wonder if this may be my problem.
