Gateway dx300 hard drive


Gateway DX300 Desktop PC is a series.

Could be a Gateway DX300MC, or DX300QS, or DX300S, or DX300X,

http://support.gateway.com/support/supinfo/index.asp?pg=2&file=DX300series.html

Fortunately all models in the series use a SATA harddrive.

[ Gateway DX300X Desktop PC used as an example,

http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/DX300/1008555/1008555nv.shtml

In the list click on - Components
On this page scroll down to the bold subheading - Harddrives

All models came with a Western Digital harddrive, but it doesn't matter what the harddrive manufacturer is, that you use ]

What size in GB amount? Depends on what you want. I myself wouldn't go more than 320GB.
That is because your anti-virus program has to sift through the harddrive.

The larger the harddrive, the longer it takes.

For more capacity, I would install a 1TB harddrive into an external enclosure, and use it connected to the computer, with it's USB cable.
(It will also come with an additional external power supply)

But that is just me.

Bear in mind that a new harddrive has no Operating System on it.
You have to purchase a genuine copy of Windows, and install it.
(This is if your harddrive presently on that Gateway is bad)

[ Microsoft makes one Master disk. From it all GENUINE copies are made, and sold to the consumer ]

Why won't my gateway 700 s boot from cd


You need to open your from its BIOS page. The way you can do this is to restart it and once it starts up press the delete button repeatly until your BIOS page comes up.. From here you have to change what your comptuer boots from. Change it to boot from CD DVD rom first then the harddrive. once you have this done save and quit the bios and pop in your cd.

My gateway 500xl won't power on


The first thing I would try is connecting a new power supply. If you can borrow one from a friend/neighbor/family member/whatever that would be the easiest/cheapest thing to try first. Also make sure all the wires are connected to the right places and securely connected.

I have a Gateway 510xl and would like to upgrade the power supply


Changing out power supplies is not that difficult task. Upgrading to a 550 Watt power supply would be a good idea because it will give you more power than you need at the moment. You can google the power supply with the word problems with it and see what comes up. The main thing to be sure of when selecting a new power supply is to make sure that you get one with the appropriate connectors for your hard drive, motherboard and processor. For example if you have a SATA Hard drive then you will need a PSU that has SATA power connectors. Most newer power supplies (PSU) have these. The box should list what connectors it has.

No power


Did the service tech actually look at the computer? I don't know how anyone could make this diagnosis without doing some testing. It could be the motherboard but it could be something else too. I would first suspect the power supply. They frequently go bad. Test that.

Gateway 700XL, yellow light only when power is pushed on.


You are on the right track. First, swap out the power supply. That normally is the issue. If that's not the issue, verify that the power switch indeed is working. You can do that by determining which color wires are for the power switch, then hold a multimeter set to resistance on the ends of those two wires. When the button is pressed, it should go to zero. If not, then the switch is fautly. That is an unlikely scenario, however. If the new power supply fails to work and the switch is okay then the problem is the motherboard.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

My gateway 700 xl doesnt boot


Unplug the power from you 700xl and from you monitor. Try removing the cmos battery and reinstalling it. Then, plug everything back in and try restarting. If it continues to give you the yellow light, you may need to replace the CMOS battery, especially if it is more than two years old.

Another thing to consider is if your power supply is underpowered for the number of external devices you have plugged into it (i.e., cd, dvd, external hard drives, printers, pci cards, etc). Gateway installed very low powered power supplies in their 700xl desktop computers. Usually only around 250 watts maximum.

If you are replacing the power supply with another 250 watt maximum power supply, and you have a lot of external devices plugged in, you may need at least a 350 watt power supply....if your CMOS battery is not the problem.
