Any hard disk that makes clicking or metallic noises is faulty, especially when POST error message no bootable devices detected.
To confirm go into the BIOS setting and see if the hard drive is detected, if it cannot detect the hard drive then it is definitely faulty.
Replace the hard drive and install Windows on the new hard drive to get the computer working again.

Gateway GT5404 when cut on it says No bootable agentPXE base code(RXE-2.1 build 0.95) what does this mean? Can I fix the problem?


It is saying it can not find a hard drive with a bootable partition to boot up with. it may have lost the boot sector (which can be repaired) or you may have to reformat and reinstall the operating system.

If Windows, run the installation CD and select the option to repair. It may be able to help.

Gateway GT5404 Recovery Disk


The recovery disk is model specific and basically garbage. You'd be better off getting an install disc for Windows or another operating system. Many flavors of Linux are available and FREE.

My gateway gt5404 says no rgb signal what do I do


With 3 beeps, you are getting a Memory base read/write error, which means your RAM is having a problem.

You can try takng the RAM simm/dimm out and re-seating them back into the slots.

If the issue continues, you will need to replace the bad RAM
