the new hard drive has to be Formatted using the format command. look up dos format command or a utility program. then you have to reinstall Windows ?(whatever you had i guess) on the pc. any drivers disk for that pc needs to run after you format the hard drive and before installing the Windows operating system. exactly how depends. go on the HOW TO search site to find the exact steps -
A memory dump or the blue screen on start-up with the memory address as you mentioned is telling you that there is a problem with hardware - it could be you new hard drive - try making 2 partitions on it and remember to do a full format and not a quick format, I would also be looking at your ram and making sure it is ok. I have come across many times where a computer has been working ok with the old ram but after formatting and reinstalling it would crash at about 36%.
i think you got the wrong disks man, nothing to do with the motherboard.
a clean installation it is recommended to this service at least once every 8 months, it wipes all your hard drive from data, programs, bugs, errors and viruses this will 100% solve your problem guaranteed. for xp, insert the xp installation disk restart the computer and a message will come up asking to press any key to boot from cd. once you do that "i mean you press a key" then a blue screen will load then asks you to press Enter to install xp. 1. press enter 2. select the partion and press enter 3. select continue "it warns you to delete files" 4. select format "quick" 5. now let it do the rest and follow instructions 6. when the installation is finished you'll notice its like new again, some computers will need drivers which you can get from manufacturer website. download and install them. that's it but for a detailed information click here
Buy a new harddrive and install a new OS on it make sure your old harddrive is disconnected after the new hard drive is working properly then reconnect your old harddrive and u will have all your files back unless the old hard drives crashed completely
When you start up computer press F12 to force computer to load from CD/DVD rom . Once it detects cd follow on screen instructions. If for some reason it doesn't work then try another cd , might need cleaning or try another CD/DVD rom if you have more the one in you system.
Is this still under warranty? If not then you'll just need to buy another HDD (hard drive device) and connect that one where the old was. Re-install XP or Vista. Conact Gateway or go to the Gateway web site to see what was hardware was supported for your system.
HDD IDE/EIDE or SATA/SATA II OS XP or Vista
After you find out the info just install the new HDD, and install the OS. I only recommend doing this since you can't even get into the Safe Mode. When everything is back up and running you can also re-attach the old drive to what is called Slave or CS (cable select) this is more automatic process. Then you'll be able to recover any data missing that you need that was on the older drive.
you have two solution available first option is installing windows xp by xp cd put the cd in cd drive and boot from it and choose to install windows on the c drive the same drive that has your old widows but you have to choose not to format the partition which will ask you to delet the windows folder and reinstall it BUT !!!!!!!!!! you have to be carfule with this option dont choose to format the partion you have to choose keep the partion otherwise you will loose the data
secound option is to open the the pc case and take out the hard drive and then connect the hard drive to another pc by usb ide cable take all data you need and save it
