I think you're system can not handle an i5. Gateway is like that. You need to buy the best next system to upgrade.

Which i5 did you get? The specification document says the following are supported:

Quote:
Intel® Core™ i7-2600 processor
Intel® Core™ i5-2500 processor
Intel® Core™ i5-2400 processor
Intel® Core™ i3-2120 processor
Intel® Core™ i3-2100 processor
