Question about Gateway (M520HD80G) Hard Drive
Check the make and model of the motherboard, then log onto the motherboard manufacturers web site and download the relevant user guide. This should give you all the details you need.
A couple of hints, if its a laptop you'll need a 2.5 inch drive.
If its a desktop, a 3.5 inch drive.
Check the mother board for IDE or SATA interfaces,
If its got just the old fashioned IDE (PATA) interface that governs the type of drive you can use
if its got both, go for SATA they're bigger, Cheaper and quicker.
If you're going to use windows XP, the older PATA makes life easier.

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
