Question about Gateway 310X PC Desktop

1 Answer

Harddrive indicator light doesn't come on my gateway 310x

I opened to see inside and when I press the On the Hardrive starts yet stops quickly. I noticed a red light flashes on on the motherboard on the lower left corner.
I had it going when I had only the power chord connected...ran great. When I connected everything else to it I got the above problem.
Can you help?

    No, I can only keep the hard drive running with only the power chord. Once I plug the monitor, keyboard and mouse in it runs for a second then nothing.

Delete hardrive on a gateway nv53a


To delete a harddrive you would go into BIOS Setup, and remove.
(Main menu, or Standard BIOS options (setup)

Was there a previous harddrive, you installed a new one, and the old is still showing up, or what is going on?

http://support.gateway.com/s/notebook/2010/gateway/nv/nv53A/NV53Asp2.shtml

My intel indicates press F2 to enter BIOS Setup.
The best method I've found is;

AS SOON AS you press the Power On button, start tapping on the F2 key.
You may hear beeps as you do.
Those are Stuck key Error Code beeps, and it is you that is doing it.
Ignore them.

If you do not know how to navigate in BIOS Setup, or save changes; post back in a Comment.

Totally way off? Post back in a Comment.

Computer doesn't recognise hardrive


It may seem obvious, but did you try a different USB port? Did you try a different computer? and did you try a different cable/cables?

My ps3 doesnt turn on and has the blinking red light. how can i get it fixed and is it just worth getting a new one since this one is like 7 yrs old. if i do get a new one can i transfer over my saved data


First you will need to open up the ps3 and take the hardrive out there are some good videos on youtube to show you how to do this.

Uplug the ps3 from the mains and take the harddrive out, power on the unit without the harddrive. Switch off at the back, blow away any dust inside the unit and replace the the hardrive and put the ps3 back together. Switch on at the back press and hold the power button in the front for about 30 secs this should reset your ps3, turn off at the back again, leave for a few minutes; about ten, then switch it on at the back; and then in the front, hopfully this should fix your problem. Good luck and post back what happens.

Compaq Presario S3040SE PC Desktop was working fine. when i turned it on next day screen says operating system not found. restart. now monitor wont kick on and hard drive light doesnt come on. only power...


Normaly when you get the error that the operating system cant be found, it is a indication that the hardrive has either gone bad, or somehow some of the system files got deleted. I would say though since the hard drive light wont come on it could be the hardrive has shut down completely. But you still should see the company image of your computer when you start it up, (the bios screen)

A bad hardrive would be my first guess, 2nd problem if its not your harddrive would be a new power supply.

Power problem?


My thought would be motherboard if the PSU has been tested. Prime candidate would be the capacitors.

If you take a look at the caps on the board, if any of them are bulging and/or leaking then we have a winner. Caps can be replaced but you do need some skill with a soldering iron!
