Question about Gateway 450ROG Notebook
The problem could be one of these -
The hard disk needs reseating to make proper electrical connection.
The hard disk is faulty.
The BIOS has not detected the hard disk.
The hard disk controller is faulty
To determine the fault -
Reseat the hard disk and boot up the laptop.
Check the BIOS configuration - does it detect the hard disk. The BIOS may have a hard disk diagnostic, if so then run the diagnostic.
For a further hard disk test - remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If the hard disk is OK then this computer will detect it as an external hard drive and you can open the folders and files.
If not then the hard disk is confirmed faulty.
To get the Gateway working, install a new hard drive and install Windows, the laptop's device drivers and your programs.
