Question about Gateway Solo 5300 Notebook
Gateway SOLO 5300 was working fine until I installed a driver for the sound wrong. Laptop has not booted up again since.I went into bios and set everything back to factory settings,I got a BSOD message that i looked up and it said it was "unmountable volume'. I am not able to use the cd drive nor a usb floppydisk. Can anyone help me?
Unplug, remove battery, plug in, reboot, start tapping F-8 repeatedly, select safe mode with networking. Uninstall the Audio adapter, download the drivers for Win XP here: http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/search.asp?st=pn¶m=3500728

first thing to try is the manufacturers diagnostic software.if that doesn't work try the ultimate boot cd
http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/ it is free and has a lot of utilities for hdd diagnostics. if you still can't get a definitive answer i would say you have a faulty logic board.

you need to check the specs on your gateway to be sure your laptop firmware can accept the 500G hard drive (might be too big for it to see). I would first check for any firmware updates from the gateway website first and any notes that they can provide to you.
Another point is the kind of hard drive you are looking at. Is it an SATA drive? PSATA? EIDE? This also needs to be clarified to be sure you have the right kind of drive. You can verifi\y that you system can see the drive by looking in the CMOS screens to see if it sees the drive. I suggest you start there and check for updates to the firmware if you do not see it in there (CMOS). Thanks!
