It all depends on use. You should get the largest the system supports and you can afford to prevent having to upgrade in the near future. A 500 GB HDD is pretty cheap now days. Hope this helps.

I recently bought a new hard drive to update the "tired out" model in my gateway model gt5674. i was told that i needed a SAS compatable motherboard to get this new hard drive installed. is there any...


Take the disk-drive back to the computer-store,
along with your computer, and exchange the new disk-drive for one that is compatible with your computer. Within 15 seconds of viewing the "inside" of your Gateway, they should be able to identify the correct model of disk-drive that will be compatible with your current motherboard.

Or, the more-expensive option: buy a PCI add-in card to add a 'SAS-compatible' interface (although I've never heard of such an interface!!!!) to your computer.

By all means, take it back where you got it. More than likely the computer is groaning about something simple like the location of the hard drive on the data-ribon. The place you purchased this machine will more than likely figure this out. I would go into details about how to fix the issue, but there are several things that " could " be happening, and i'm not comfortable sending a novice into thier bios settings, or opening the case to determine the exact issue.

Most of the time manufacturers put preloaded software and the OS on different disks, do you have multiple cd's that came with it?

Have you tried wiping the hard drive before with success? Did it install some of the preloaded softwares, or none of them?

I want to get a new hard drive and need to purchase a recovery cd


Pull the hard drive out and determine if it is an IDE or a SATA drive and just order a new one. Other than the type of drive and perhaps some size limitations in the BIOS of that computer, they are compatable with any 2.5" drive.
