Well you'd have to make it known which cable it is.

My gateway says "Check cable connection!PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel PXE ROM. No bootable device--insert boot disk and press any key". What should I do?

Sounds like the hard drive isn't getting power,the data cable to the drive isn't connected,or the drive controller on the motherboard is toast(I'm a novice tinkerer,not an expert).

My Engineer has lost the cable wire connecting the Hard Disk and the Mother Board of Intex M52G where can I find it.?

You can get one from a computer repair shop or computer parts shop.
There are 3 different types of data cables and it must match the type of hard drive.
Take you hard drive with you so the shop can see what type of data cable you need.

Either the data cable at its back is badly plugged in (refit the data cable correctly) or the unit itself is faulty - replace it, it cannot be repaired.

I have the same problem, i did try the external monitor it work i get an image,did try the flash light trick i could not see anything on the laptop screen can somebody help

The flashlight trick doesn't always make the desktop visible, so the trouble might still be just a bad inverter. But it's also possible the data cable from the motherboard to the display has completely broken. Sometimes they sever completely from flexing or because of rubbing against the hinge. Unfortunately, it's often not possible to get a data cable all by itself, just with a replacement screen. Compaq uses displays from several vendors, so your model may not have the same display panel as another. Using the wrong cable won't hurt anything, but the display won't work properly. The inverter board is the same, though; so if you haven't tried yet, you may want to replace it. It's not an expensive part and is available from several sources. Then the backlight should work, and if you still have no display you can decide whether to try replacing the display or the whole laptop.

Hard drive crashed!

if your hard drive crashed, then there is no way to repair it, and for your data the only way is to contact some laboratry like ONTRACK to do the data recovery but this is very very very expensive, so get a new hard drive.

When switching the machine, it takes long and

1. There is no electrical power to the disk-drive, i.e., a loose cable has become disconnected.
2. There is no data-cable to the disk-drive, i.e., loose cable.
3. The disk-drive's built-in electronics has failed.
4. The disk-drive's motor (that spins the hard-drive) has failed.
5. The read/write "heads" that move over the recording-surface of the disk-drive are "stuck" -- not moving when being commanded to.
6. Those "heads" have scratched a recording-surface, namely the part that contains the "boot" information part of MS Windows.

Those are the problems you could be encountering.

Now, the best "solution" is to take the computer to a qualified technician, for trouble-shooting, which may involve extracting the
disk-drive, and shipping it to a (expensive!) "Data Recovery Service",
who can repair your disk-drive just long enough to copy all your data-files to CD/DVD disks (or to a new disk-drive).

If you can perform the repair that I mentioned is your other post, then your data will not be lost. If you have to reformat and reload the system, or the drive has failed, then you will lose the data. The only way to retrieve it is to send it off to a retrieval company, and that;s expensive.

Pink screen

Dear LT user,

Your LT has one of the following 2 problems: Your LCD cable might be faulty OR your inverter board is malfunctioning.

The LCD cable is responsible for transfering "color information" or "screen data" from the motherboard to your screen. If this cable is faulty or malfunctions, it can result in a lot of appearances - in your case a pink screen.

The Inverter board is repsonsible for the "light" on your screen. If the inverter board is faulty or does not function properly, you might experience this issue.

If your LT is still under waranty, you can give it in @ the nearst HP Warany centre for repairs. If not ; HP parts are very expensive.

What you can also do, you could install an external monitor (LCD flatscreen) to your LT. Because the Flatscreen cable connects to your VGA port at the back of your LT, using an 15 pin blue connector , it connects directly to the Mainboard so it does not run over the LCD cable and thus will be a unit on its own.

Kind Regards,
