Question about Gateway MX6440 (6585) PC Notebook
How do you open gateway MX6440. No audio. Bootup shows sound check fail "check Cable" . Can't open to check cable.
Typically, a computer tries to "boot" from several devices:
1. 3.5-inch diskette
2. internal CD-ROM
3. internal disk-drive
4. USB memory-stick
5. network (if a "boot-server" can be found on the network)
6. external diskette
7. external CD-ROM
8. external disk-drive
So, in your case, either
* the "boot-order" _EXCLUDES_ your disk-drive,
* your disk-drive is not connected,
* your disk-drive is connected, but is "dead" (not responding)
Not being able to boot from the disk-drive, your computer probes, via the network, for a "boot-server". Finding none, your computer reports, in a strange way, that "network cable is not connected to a boot-server".
So, the "check cable" means that the Ethernet cable between the network-port on your computer and the boot-server may be "unconnected".
What this could mean is that your disk-drive is "dead".
Take the computer to a qualified technician, for more trouble-shooting.
