Here is a picture of the hard drive caddy itself. http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-GATEWAY-SOLO-2500-LAPTOP-HARD-DRIVE-CADDY-ADEAL_W0QQitemZ6863173195QQcmdZViewItem

You see that hole in it towards the front?. If you look underneath the laptop you should see a tray that looks like that with a screw in it. Just take the screw out and the whole caddy should slide right out.

Got the computer second hand the previous owner used a dell recovery disk how can I use the gateway recovery disks to get it running?


You insert the disks with the computer powered off. Then power the computer on and it should boot into the recovery and offer you options. Choose the option to reset the computer to how it was when it was new. It will take a while to wipe the hard drive completely. Then it will install the Windows version originally installed. It may reboot up to twice while doing that - you shouldn't have to do anything. It will also install any software utilities which Gateway put on the computer (some of which may be bloatware which encourages you to subscribe to services - consider uninstalling some of that and downloading your own free ones). That's it - really simple! Let us know how you get on please.

you will probably need to make such a CD using software freely available from the internet.
Recommneded example programs are Acronis TrueImage and Macrium Reflect (can't remember if these are free though)
Search for 'Easeus' and 'clone' for another

Gateway pentium 3 boots to where it displays cdrom drive infromation then it pops up a blue window asking for a pass code. What is the code it requests or cause of problem?


Sounds like a bios password thats only thing it can be pre-boot screen. If its a desktop you can dislodge the bios battery for about 3 minutes if its a laptop your kinda screwed. If you can prove ownership of the laptop then maybe Gateway has a master password work around.

Where is my cmos battery. Gateway Solo 2500


You will have to contact the vendor as most all notebooks have a security chip for holding the password unlike a desktop where you can just pull the battery. With the security chip pulling the battery is not an option for almost all laptops out there.

Gateway gt5404 reads no bootable device pc seemed to siow down some then went black was after micro. soft update ? unpluged twice pulled batt. reconected it worked set clock back worked awhile went black...


Any hard disk that makes clicking or metallic noises is faulty, especially when POST error message no bootable devices detected.
To confirm go into the BIOS setting and see if the hard drive is detected, if it cannot detect the hard drive then it is definitely faulty.
Replace the hard drive and install Windows on the new hard drive to get the computer working again.

My Dell C640 laptop freezes normally just some few minutes after booting


When the laptop freezes up on you does the keyboard or anywhere on the top cover feel very hot if so check to see if the fan is even blowing, if it is blowing then its possible there is dirt on the heatsink fan that is blocking the air flow and thats causing the overheating. You would need to take apart the laptop to get to the cpu heatsink to remove all the dirt.

if the fan isn't running at all then you would need to get a new fan.

If the fan is running and there is no dirt or debris near the heatsink then that means the motherboard is not reglulating the voltage properly and the motherboard needs to get replaced.

if nothing is feeling very warm or hot to the touch and the system is locking up then the hard drive may have bad sectors and the hard drive would need to be replaced.

I have a gateway solo 2500and missing something


Are you talking about the hard drive? If so, some have a ribbon cable, they are referred to as IDE cables or ATA, you can get one at any computer store. To check to see if this is the cable you need, look on the hard drive, there should be one slot with 40 pins, and another smaller slot with 8 or so pins and another with 4 large pins. If it has the 40 pin slot, it uses the IDE cable, the larger 4 pins are where you hook up the power cable from the power supply. If you dont see the 40 pin, you may see two straight black bars, with a small 90 degree bend at the end of them, that would be a sata cable that you would need.
