by pickclejuice6 / March 23, 2005 2:37 AM PST

I bought a bare Gateway notebook mainboard.
I have not been able to id it.
The reseller gives no support. Gateway support has not been able to help with what information I was able to give. It has a celeron m 1.3 installed. One edge has a vga out, 1 usb, 1 firewire, 1rj11,1rj45. The modem is a Askey. The pc card controller is Ricoh rsc593. Two memory slots on the board. Silk screened on the board is code ba41-00353a rev 11-05 Any help is welcomed

I want to find out what Gateway notebook it goes with.
To be able to use it. Gateway does not reconize sx05.
I have searched Gateway support to match up the components. Thank You.

Perhaps this is a more useful response.

After some google searches and Ebay research I believe this board was used in a Gateway 200ARC and also sold in Europe as the Samsung X05.

I bought one also, hoping to use it in a project.
Unfortunately I don't think I can get it powered and connected to a disk and booted. Anyone know a cheap source for HD connector BA41-00383A;DC/DC convertor BA96-02286A or Multifunction board (with power switch) BA59-01094A? Power to DC/DC board wwas 19V AD-6019A adapter.
It also appears to me that the Samsung LCD display SAMSUNG LTN141XJ-L01, lcd cable BA39-00336A, and lcd backlight invertor Samsung SIC350A are used with this

U sure it's not an M405?

Go to, enter the Download Center, and search for Aquila. It will fail. However, it will offer you a link to search their GLOBAL downloads site.

Go there, and repeat your search. You get SOME info on this laptop, but it's all in Korean. Sad

Please share any new info you get, as I'd at least like to get this sucker to power up. (Yes, I, too, am a sucker. I bought one.) I wonder how many people have done the same? Maybe we should have a yahoo group for this thing...

I had thought it might be a Gateway M405 but followed your lead and learned I was wrong.

This may help a bit
by x05Stooge / May 4, 2005 8:41 AM PDT

Going from a previous post, I was able to find a little more information about this motherboard. Don't know how much it will help, but here is the link.

I have been looking for a schematic, but had no luck there.
