Question about Gateway MX6447 Notebook
I've diagnosed mine as a bad hard drive controller on the motherboard. Drive works in another laptop and another good drive won't register either.
Had similar problem on sony vaio. when power depressed, i could hear the cd drive turn a bit, the hard drive light blink once, and that's it. power light would remain on, but nothing else. I took it apart and resoldered all the main chasis grounds on the motherboard and shorted/resetted the board battery(memory/clock) and put everything back together and started up fine. got lucky i guess.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive boot up
test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty ?
even something as small as an electrical extension or a faulty fan lead can cause this problem computer needs all of the data and power to travel through every working device and to have an end for a computer to be able work properly:
a motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all electrical extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these devices are working
could be a dirty graphics card you might have remove the graphics card and clean the socket
also check your computer ram and cmos battery to make sure they are securely seated and the battery has plenty of charge:
hope this helps you
