This is my hardware

http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/1009521/1009521sp3.shtml

I have refurbished the system with more RAM (3GB total now) and a new CPU(Core2Duo E2700 2x2.53Ghz)

When I try and boot the live USB of Ubuntu 12.10 amd64 I get the boot loader menu but when I press enter to boot from live USB, the system beeps and nothing happens. I can keep pressing enter but it just keeps beeping.

I have reflashed the BIOS to the most recent version for the chipset. Is there some option I haven't enabled perhaps? What could it be?

I am running 12.10 32bit with no issues.

Have you tried downloading again the ISO? Sometimes the image gets corrupt. –  Lucio Feb 24 '13 at 3:28

is a problem in the /syslinux/txt.cfg of the bootkey , where it says "/casper/vmlinuz", this has to be "/casper/vmlinux.efi", then you should be set
