If you would provide more information about your Systemax system... model/serial number I can look the specs up. I can tell you the only way that it could be the hard drive would be if you had a bad power supply, not that your system can't handle the "power" of the hard drive. If you end up getting a new power supply, you could opt for one with a little higher wattage if you'd like. A 160gb hard drive isn't going to pull any more meaningful amount of current than a 40gb. What I would look at would be wither you had the jumpers on the hard drive configured correctly. For info on jumpers, see...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jumper_(computing)

Individual drive manufactures and drive models have different method for setting the jumpers and it will also very on what other IDE connected devices you have in your computer (optical drives, hard drives, Zip drives, and etc.).

Laptop shuts down after exactly 30 minutes


the first thins is go to the system restore in control panel. And restore to somedate the you know that the laptop was working good.
If the problem persist the motherboard, the capacitors around can be faulty, replace.

However you can install or use the software diagnostic from your computer supplier for hardware, and get it for free.

God bless you

Sounds like a severe hardware problem concerning your laptop's hard drive. I suggest you contact Gateway customer service to check on your warranty - your laptop is, simply put, broken. The best approach to repairing it is not to fix it yourself in this case.

Automatically shut down of my lap top


Try the RAM modules one at a time. See if system run normally one one but not the other. If no change, then the system is most likely not cooling properly and when under load it crashes. If that is the case, a CPU Heatsink/Cooling fan might resolve. If still no go, then motherboard

Shut down itself


Hi i'm Rain.
If your Laptop is over heating you may need to look into a stronger type of cooling system { Fan }
But for now lets set up your power Options settings
to try to keep your CPU cool.
In power options select Power Saver.
If you see the selection to keep the fan running select it also. save and exit.
Hopefully this will help to keep your system cool until you can service it.

POWER FAILURE AFTER HD CONNECT


Ok ATA is the standard for data transfer, in this case it is IDE. 133 is the max transfer rate. I have removed the hard drive from ours (bought from dell directly and has not been changed) and the hard drive is set as Master (no jumper). Try this if it does not work i would test the hard drive in another system or in an inclosure.

I PLUG IN A BRAND NEW WESTINGH. HARD DRIVER 160 GB AND COMPUTER S


did you configure the 160GB hard drive as second???
there is a shorting pin between the ribbem cable and the power cable.
take a look on the hard drive, there should have adiagram shows where the shorting pin need to go to make it as secondary drive.
install the hard drive as secondary drive.
if you want the drive to be the primary. you nee to install the operating system on it.
with out operating system the machine will boot up in to DOS only, and a error message telling you the drive has no loader.

Shutting down without warning


shutting down this way is usually loose or ill fitted hd,sometimes mem or conflicting software.
take out hd refit making sure housed properly.start up pc and see how it goes.
check mem.take them /it out of housing check for dust.. refit.
some tech's suggest taking mem out and swapping them around ..this has no impact the mere fact thet you remove clean and refit is all thats required.

Thanks for nothing systemax


matching peices of hardware in a notebook can be difficult, but it does sound as though the CPU has failed, and at $450 for a repair, its worth spending a liitle extra for a higher spec new notebook.
