I have a old gateway pc and I would like to install a Hard Drive from a Dell pc into it. Can it be done?

Swapping the hard drive from the Dell into the Gateway will not work because the Dell hard drive has been installed with Dell specific drivers and configurations.
When you install the Dell hard drive into the Gateway you need to wipe the hard drive and install a fresh copy Windows XP onto this hard drive and the Gateway device drivers etc.

My Optavision 9500 HD light will not come on when power up, it is not even a year old and doesn't get used often. So what does anyone suggest?

First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

Check the BIOS configuration to see if the hard disk is detected.
If it is not detected then most likely it is faulty. If you can boot up with a DOS disk and run FDISK and if FDISK cannot see the hard drive then it is faulty. Then you need to replace the hard disk.

Hello. It sounds like your external hard drive has crashed, or is getting ready to crash. If you can back up your data, you should do it now. If not, you should get your drive to a professional as soon as possible.

I'll monitor this thread. If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask.

I am replacing the hard drive in my Dell Dimension L866r

Do you have a floppy drive in the drive if so remove it. Also turn off your floppy drive or just remove it completely it could be bad sending false info to the main board saying there is floppy drive in the computer. Also try and turn the drive off in the BIOS

Compaq d540s hard disk upgrade

Jackwan -

Sounds like the boot record of the drive may be corrupt. When you runs the XP installation, you'll be given an option to start the Recovery Console. Go ahead and open that, should bring up a command prompt. At the prompt, type "fix mbr" (With the quotes removed). Select Yes or Continue when asked, and go through the repair process, then reboot the system and try installing Windows again.

You might want to check first, make sure the jumpers on the hard drive are set to Master, or Cable Select, and make sure the drive is connected as Drive 0 on the Primary IDE channel.

Hope this helps!
