Question about Gateway M305CRV LCD VIDEO CABLE DDOA5LLC004 CD-ROM Drive

1 Answer

I am attempting to help repair a friends notebook pc. A few days ago she turned it off and the next morning when she tried to restart it the only screen displayed states that one of the main OS files is either missing or corrupt and to load the OS CD and press R to repair. We've tried this repeatedly, and each time the only thing that happens, is immediately after it restarts, it displays that same screen again. Now, I've put the OS disc in again and pressed F8, then pressed R for repair, but I am now stuck on the Recovery Console screen, asking me which Windows installation I would like to log onto...in parenthesis it states to cancel, press ENTER. So I pressed 1, to select "1: C:\WINDOWS" but nothing happened after simply pressing 1, so then I pressed enter after pressing 1 and then the following is displayed, "C:\WINDOWS>" without a blinking cursor behind it and I can hear that the disc I put in is NOT running. Can you please tell me the next few steps that I need to do in order to finish the OS repair?

You can attempt to repair this file by starting


type HELP (seriously)

you will get a list of commands

checkMBR

fixMBR
fixBOOT
etc...

try them out and see if you can get a boot,

I usually have better luck using the repair option of "re-copying windows files while leaving personal files intact" option

this can be done when choosing to install windows (2 options there- fresh install which whips everything 0r-- replace only windows files and leave other file intact ).

Cd or dvd rom drive


This might be due to a registry problem. Re-installing windows (OS) or repairing your OS installation can help. You can install from any previous back up or get the installation files in a USB storage device like pen drive.
You can also try the following which have worked .. insert the OS installation disk in the cd-dvd drive. restart Pc. change boot device option. installation of new OS begins. this is a hit n trial method, but has worked earlier.

No Power - Power Indicator 3 Seconds


This line of hp notebooks is the most notorious for power jack issues. There a re a few different symtpoms but 95% of all problems can be fixed with a power jack resoldering or replacement. It very rarely damages anything else on the motherboardis and seldom has anything to do with the power adapter/supply itself. There are a few options:

1) take to computer repair shop and get new power adapter. (As this requires a complete tear down of the notebook, it can be a bit expensive in terms of labor. The part is less than $10 on ebay and is readily available. You can download the service manual and break down the notebook yourself and take just the mb and new adapter to the shop and save some money. I don't recommend attempting to soldering on the MB yourself

2) If you don't need portability as much as just being able to use the laptop at home, then purchase an xb2000 expansion base from craigslist and power thru the docking port on the side. Be sure and confirm that the adapter is included with the purchase as some owners may have discarded it since their particular model didn't need it.

3) If you can manage to get an XC1000 cable for a reasonable price off ebay or craigslist, this is a portable option. However, as they stopped making these All-In-One media cables a while back, those who have them know their value and command a pretty hefty price. I personally would rather pay a computer repair shop a $150 before I pay some person who capitalizes on my misfortune.

4) I am in the process of confirming this least expensive solution but I don't see why it wouldn't work.
-- adapter from the xb2000 expansion base (you can pick these up cheap or free)
-- xc2000 all-in-one media cable ($35 - $50)
-- 120w power adapter for Presario R4000,R4100, R4200, and Pavilion ZV6000 (oval shaped multi-pin connection required.) Note: The original lower wattage adapter will not work. ($25 - $30)
Although this solution may cost a little bit depending on how creative you are, you can sell your old power adapter to offset the cost of the new adapter AND you can sell all 3 for what you paid when the laptop dies completely.

5) the paper clip trick has been known to solve a few problems where the connection in the socket is the problem

Ultimately, you can purchase a MB and replace it your self, the MBs run around $150 and you can use the service manual to break down the notebook. However, this is only a recommended solution if you have video problems since breaking down the laptop is just time consuming and the soldering of the power adapter is cheap
