How do format a hard drive in gateway m460

You had better know what your going before you do this as it will erase the operating system too, making the disk unusable until you install the operating system again. Call Tiger Direct and buy an internal HDD adapter cable... it has a USB plug on one end and will allow ANOTHER PC to read it like a Flashdrive. Remove the HDD for our PC and connect the adapter. Using the other PC, format each directory separately, usually there are two: a C: and D:. You can also extract all the data files you have stored on the HDD BEFORE you reformat it. If you don't see files on the old HDD, use the START... type in "cmd"... then the old HDD name as listed in the other PC, for example, if it's Q:, use the command "CHG DIR Q:\" This will change to that HDD. Type in "TYPE DIR/W/P and all the directories should show up. If it's blank, you have a bad HDD and reformatting it won't help you. Buy a new HDD from Tiger Direct, at least 500GB at the fast spool speed. Have you original Genuine Windows CD-Rom ready and the key code and install it in your good HDD.

I have a gateway M305CRV with a HDD password that needs removed. Would prefer not to take it apart if that's possible, but if that's the only way so be it.

When you first turn on the computer then you change that using the bios menus. That's if you mean its a hdd password vs a windows. Also, you can try right clicking the hdd icon then choose properties. The security settings for it can be changed here.

My Gateway CX2724 will not install a fresh copy of XP on new Harddrive. HDD is a newly formatted, and the BIOS is set to recognize CDROM, HDD, and so on. The SETUP is still stating that it can not see the...

You need to go into the BIOS and change the SATA type to IDE and not AHCI. I had this same problem on my laptop. Once I switched it to IDE it installed XP no problem. I don't know if Vista or 7 work with it set to IDE mode.

Laptop won't boot after new hdd and memory upgrade

Re-seat the memory and the HDD connector. If no change try the mem modules one by one. If no change try it without the HDD connected to see if there is a problem with the new HDD.
