Question about Gateway 450ROG Notebook

1 Answer

Gateway 450ROG I got a gateway 450ROG off ebay for repair and everything is good on it, almost looks new, but the Hard Drive connector is broken off from the motherboard. All the pins are still on it, but when I go to put it on I have to push down on it and the screen will come on. The screen will not come on if this is off. Is there anyway to put this hard drive connector back on? Thanks...

Without a visual inspection it would be impossible to say. But it does sound like you will almost certainly need a new motherboard.

Gateway 450rog notebook cleaned hard drive and installed xp. need drivers installed for ethernet controller. do not have driver disk and looked on gateway support.??


I took a look out on Gateway's download site and found the usual drivers for your box.

gateway's download site

In particular here is the url to the network driver I think you are looking for

network driver

Hopefully you can use a friends pc to connect to this web site, download the driver onto a usb stick, and then take that to your laptop and install the driver.

good-luck.

Laptop won't fdisk or format hard drive.


Windows will not allow you to format the partition you're working from. You might have to use a third party software to format the drive then reinstall Windows. Gparted is a good program.

Laptop screen very dark


the screen is not a sealed unit... and the backlight and the lcd bulb can both be changed out...
I do it on a daily basis....

It is way cheaper to change out the lcd bulb than it is to replace the lcd display panel... Way CHEAPER

the results are the same
