Hard drive not detected


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Can i use my ibm hard drive in a gateway pc


Laptop hard drives are compatible to any laptops as long as the connectors are the same. ATA to ATA or SATA to SATA.

If your IBM hard drive is a laptop hard drive, it will not be compatible with a desktop. Desktop hard drives are 3.5 inches in size while notebooks or laptop hard drives come in 2.5 inches.

Hope this helps.

Hard drive


Sounds like a bad hard drive. Back up all your data.
If your drive is making clicking sounds .. do it quickly or you will loose everything when the drive stop working altogether.

I have 2 Gateway laptop computers and in one of them the CDROM Drive got fried. I would like to replace it with the one from the other laptop. How do I exchange them?


Before beginning, review electrostatic discharge (ESD) precautions. Disconnect the power adapter, the modem and network cables, and remove the battery before removing the hard drive bay cover. Remove the RAM door whichi s secured by one screw. Now loosen the two hard drive screws and pull the DVD/CD-RW drive from the laptop. Replace the cover before restoring power or reconnecting the modem and network cables.
