Your PC isn't really old at 8 months. Most systems can be upgraded with more memory, a faster processor, larger hard drive, new hardware, and the list goes on. Are you running Windows XP? Windows Vista, is the latest OS from Microsoft, but I understand that XP is still supported. I guess the short answer would be to ask yourself: does it do what you need it to do? For example, I upgraded from my previous PC when I decided to do more stuff with DVD editing, and my old PC was a bit too slow to handle the higher speeds needed for editing video files to DVD's. You might as mentioned ealier in my post inquire about upgrading your PC instead. Figure out the costs, and then compare the costs with those of just buying a new PC. Then after comparing both options make your decision based on what you feel best meets your needs. PS: I still run Windows ME on an Intel Celeron 750 mhz laptop; for what I use it for it still works okay...BNG

My hard drive was dead and wasn't recognized by the computer, it didn't even start, just a few clicking noises, which according to some of the experiences is the same as a DEAD Hardisk. Anyways, as I read that sometimes this happens as a result of a hit, well, I wacked my HD as a last hope for it to recover its "memory" (as in the movies) and believe me or not, it worked! I don't know if this might help yours, but it saved mine! 
The way I did it was like this: I started the pc and when the HD started to run and I heard a couple of clicks, I hit it against the table while in vertical position (assuming that the arm of the HD might slightly move better that way) one time, and then when the spinning and the first click was heard agin I hit again. After that I heard the typical searching sound of a HD, and you can imagine I started to pray that what I heard wasn't my anxiety sound (if it has any). Now I am a firm believer in the old trick of whacking the old TV to get the vital signal back! 
Good luck to you too!

Hello, my name is Thomas, im not quite sure that matters but, i bought a new WD hard drive about 4 months ago, after i bought a 160 GB hard drive a few years back. I'm very pleased with WD hard drives and...


Externals can be a pain. Mainly because of their casings that can cause failures to happen for no apparent reason. If your warranty will be expired and/or the drive is not showing in "Computer Management - Disk Management" I would suggest removing the casing from the external and plugging the hard drive you've extracted from the case into a desktop.

If the drive is still not recognized after being installed into a desktop I would look into data recovery. My personal favorite data recovery software is Knoppix which is an OS(linux) booted from disk.

Iomega 320 external hard drive computer wont recognise


Probably not the right answer for your problem. Mine is an external 1 TB Simple Drive. Mine wouldn't respond at all. I unplugged the power cable from the back of the hard drive and replugged it in and instantly it worked (with the computer and hard drive plugged in). I had tried rebooting the computer, plugging/unplugging over and over into the computer and that didn't work.

Board I was told is dead how or where can one go to get it tested


You can get a new motherboard and use your old hard drives. If you are a novice computer builder I suggest you have a shop do it.

The BIOS is software used by your motherboard only, and not related to your problem at all.

Depending on how much the shop charges it may be cheaper to buy a new computer and put your existing hard drives in the new computer. The programs will have to be reinstalled, which may be impossible if you don't have the discs anymore. The data is safe on the hard drives until you can bypass that problem.

Probably blown capacitors, the 19" widescreen uses 6 16V 1000uF
Do you have a soldering gun? Its not that hard to fix, get the capacitors on ebay for $6-$8 with shipping.

Laptop Gateway mx8711


Gateway laptop is really ****.
I bought Gateway MX8711 in March 2007, after 6 months i use it...the hard disk failed.
Gateway replaced a new Hitachi hard disk for me but not more than 8 months and it failed again.
Gateway told me that i have no more warranty because the repair warranty is only 90 days.
I bought this laptop and use it not more than 2 years, the hard disk was failed twice.
Usually Hard disk manufacturer provided 3 years warranty for the hard disk. The manufacturer year of the hard disk is May 2007....they should able to help because the har disk not more than a year being used...but they don't. This is really bad customer service and not fair to the buyer.
I will not buy any Gateway products anymore....i swear.
