    If you do not know where it's located or how to fix/replace it, I would advice you to get a person with electronics knowledge to look at it.

If you see the Fujitsu HDD model#: MHU2100AT. under BIOS setup, that means the HDD is there but the operating system is not loading up. Try the following:

1. Run System Recovery (turn the computer ON and press the F11 key simultaneously) - take note that this will erase everything and you'll start from scratch.
2. If you have a Recovery Discs, press F12 simultaneously upon boot-up and choose to boot from the CD/DVD drive
3. If a System Recovery Window came up (see image below), then proceed and wait until it restore Windows.

If you don't get an image similar to the screen above, and you get an error like PXE Error Media State Media Disconnected, or 0x000000E or "An I/O Error occured" - this is a sign that your HDD is already failing and needs to be replaced. If you're still under warranty, call gateway support at 1-800-846-2000.


Good luck.

Sonar is working erratically. Loses bottom and flashes. Anything to do other than replace the transducer?


I have a very similar problem. Unfortunately my boating season is over until next May. I found I was at software rev 2.30 and should be at 3.40 Some of the software updates were to resolve sounder problems.

My Garmin GPS 498 stopped locating sattelites. How can I fix it?


Power off the Garmin unit. Press on continuously the upper top left corner of screen and then power on the unit by pressing once on the Power button. You should be prompted to clear all user data, or asked if do you really want to start up in maintenance mode. Press "Yes" to reset (warning: all data will be erased and lost, so backup before proceeding) or enter maintenance mode. I hope this helps. Good luck

My Garmin 498C will not show the contore of the bottom or give me a depth reading. The GPS works and will show me charts but, not the sounder option though.


You need to check to see if the depth sounder transducer is connected or functioning. It might be turned off, the connectors may be bad or the transducer is bad. I don't have the 498 manual in front of me but I think there is a test function under the setup menu. I'd check my connections (the usual suspect) then run that.

Garmin tech support is pretty good/quick. So don;t be afraid to give them a call.

I think the transducer is down too low. Raise it up so that the center of it is in line with the bottom of the boat.
