Not really sure about "flogs"? .... but I think you bought a SATA drive instead of an IDE drive?

Yes you can get adaptors ... here's one supplier if found through Google:

I have a GT4016 Gateway Desktop. I want to purchase a 2Terra Internal Hard Drive. Would this be a Sata or Pata Drive

If the computer is already open its easy to tell if you have SATA or PATA capabilites. Most modern computers have SATA and maybe one PATA. An SATA plug looks like a sideways L. The PATA ports have a couple rows of pins and require a cable ribbon. If you have both kinds of ports you should go with the SATA because this has a much higher bandwith (1.5 Gbps I think)

There are 2 types of drives. SATA and IDE. Most likely you have purchased a SATA and your system is older with an IDE harddrive

I would suggest returning it to the store and getting an IDE drive. You may contact me any time and I can walk you thu have to resolve this issue.

Please keep me posted and updated on your issue. I am here for you and will see your issues out till resolved.

Have a great and wonderful day :)

Disk read error-Verifying DMI Pool data... My

hello, Acer T180 comes with a SATA drive which are very reasonable priced these days. I think your system came with a 160GB hard drive (less than $50), you can probably get a 500GB for $50 bucks now.
here is a link to newegg for sata internal drive many of them free shiping for holiday season.

you may come across few terms like "bare drive", "OEM", then there are regular ones. "bare drive" doens't come with wires(sata data & power connector), same with OEM- no wires, keep in mind OEM is genrally for resellers but i don't think anyone cares (:-) ).. since you are replacing the drive you have you can get by with any or these types. bare drive & OEM tend to be bit cheaper in price.

hope this helps

good Luck

Blue Screen

Is this still under warranty? If not then you'll just need to buy another HDD (hard drive device) and connect that one where the old was. Re-install XP or Vista. Conact Gateway or go to the Gateway web site to see what was hardware was supported for your system.

OS XP or Vista

After you find out the info just install the new HDD, and install the OS. I only recommend doing this since you can't even get into the Safe Mode. When everything is back up and running you can also re-attach the old drive to what is called Slave or CS (cable select) this is more automatic process. Then you'll be able to recover any data missing that you need that was on the older drive.

Hard drive

Hello hubert lee,

Generally there is only one of two ways to resolve this. Depending on the severity of the corruption.

1) If the hard drive can not be repairable - purchase another hard drive and if possible install the operating system and re-install all the software programs onto your new hard drive. The corrupted hard drive, depending if you have important data to recover, you may want to take it to a local pc repair shop and see if they can recover your data.

2) See if the hard drive is repairable - you can download a gateway scan (GWScan5.12) from theere website and follow the simple instructions to copy the file onto a floppy diskette (will need to do this on another pc). Then run the GWScan, go thru an extensive hard drive test and wait for a result. At some cases, it may be able to repair your hard drive (again, depending on the severity of corruption). The following is the link to download the GWScan5.12

Good luck and thank you
