My Gateway GT5404 Freezes


1. your hard drive may be at what is called the "end - of - life"
2. I suggest that you try to backup important files if you can get into the pc screen again.
3. PC freezing is sometimes due to a failing power supply, a failing hard drive, and or a depleted CMOS battery.

Hard drive status: faild model: WDC WD2500JS-22NCB1 is there a way to check this drive


You can open the device manager and see if it says "this device is operating correctly" ...go to start, right click computer, Manage, and then on the lh side click device manager. You can also go into setup when your computer is booting (this is your bios) and see if there are hardware tests in there...many bios's have a hard drive test in there. But, if you got an error that says your hard drive failed...your hard drive is more than likely crashing if it's not gone yet, I would back it up. Usually they get a SMART failure before they are actually gone. Yes, the detection programs now detect certain hard drive failures, and can detect a failing hard drive before it's all the way gone...this is very helpful because it gives you time to save your data.

I have a gateway Profile 5. when i cut it on


My understanding is that when you power on your PC, the POST is succesful, but then the system hangs.? If i am correct. There are several reasons this may happen.

1) Boot record corrupt
S) Reformat the harddrive and re-install operating system / replace hard drive

2) General Hard drive failure but boot record instact
S) Replace Hard drive

3) Operating system inoperative
S) Re-install operating system

Most pre-built systems come with recovery disks, you may try this as a solution if available.

When replacing a defective hard drive, or partialy inoperable hard drive, a good policy is to change the drive to slave, and install the new drive as master, this way any data you may be able to recover, can be done after the new hard drive is installed, and an operating system is installed on the new drive.


(POST = Power On Self Test)

Profile 4


Download some free hard drive testing software, like seagate tools,from:  Seagate.com  or another had drive manufactor. They run from a disk w/o windows . If the hard drive checks out try reinstalling the system. Another quick test , for conformation is to hook up you monitor to anther computer just to make sure it is not the monitor. It rarely is.

MY GATEWAY PROFILE 4 ISSUES A PROBLEM WITH THE HARD DRIVE.


Bad news. Your hard drive has had a SMART failure and subsequently crashed. If your data was important, I would get the computer to a skilled professional as soon as possible. Ideally, you can get them to make an image of your drive. That will get you back to right before the crash. If they can't do that, there are data recovery places like gillware.com that can help you out for a flat fee.

Hard disk failure


What exactly does the error say?

The safest thing to do is to stop powering up the hard drive. Get a new hard drive and adapter cable to pull the data off the old hard drive (secondary) and onto the new hard drive (primary) after the new hard drive has been formatted.

If you don't feel you can safely do that, you may want to seek the assistance of someone who can or a company that provides hard drive recovery services.

A hard disk failure error typically indicates the hard drive has (or is about to) fail and become useless.
