Gateway are most likely wrong. These Gateway cp's usually have a motherboard failure which stops the cpu socket working, replacing the motherboard is a far cheaper option than buying a new pc, restore windows using my rstore disk which uses your registered version of XP. You could put the hdd in a dell computer, set the jumper omn the back to secondary master or slave of either the primary master ( C:\) or the secondary master.Then copy the files you wnt to an external source or the dell pc.

I have a old gateway pc and I would like to install a Hard Drive from a Dell pc into it. Can it be done?

Swapping the hard drive from the Dell into the Gateway will not work because the Dell hard drive has been installed with Dell specific drivers and configurations.
When you install the Dell hard drive into the Gateway you need to wipe the hard drive and install a fresh copy Windows XP onto this hard drive and the Gateway device drivers etc.

Laptop turns on but only Gateway screen with Boot Menu:<F10> BIOS Settings:<F2> comes up

Your machine isn't able to find the windows software on the hard drive, and most likely you need to get the hard drive checked. If you press F10, does it show you the hard drive?
If so, you probably need to get windows reinstalled. If not, it's likely time to get a new hard drive.
It's an easily accessible part to get to, so the repair shouldn't cost alot, and hard drives retail between $30 and $100 depending on size and speed.
You will need to install windows on it afterwards.

Fan works but no beeps, no video signal. Tried some suggestions.

sometimes pulling the power cord out of the pc and then replugging it will let it reboot. for some reason these machines die, and they will not reboot until you take all the power off the motherboard for about 10 seconds.

My Pc wont boot no signal in my monitor Help!

May be your in second HDD, you didn't set the jumper up. There are some more settings you will have to configure in the BIOS menu. in the BIOS, you should set the primary HDD as the master and the second(newer HDD) as the secondary. Then it should boot without any problem but if the problem persists I don't know what to do next.

Try another power supply. I believe you would have this problem if your 4-pin connector from the power supply is not connected to the board. Of cause, you might have a defective board.
