Yes. You will need to open up your case and check if the hard drive is properly connected. If it is, then you may have a dead hard drive.

I have A gateway dx4870 ub308. when i turn it on it beeps 4 times and even tbought the on light stays . on it won't do anything else


The hard drive or some other critical component may be failing, or just the OS or hard drive corrupted. If you have files that you do not want to lose, you could try this... Pull the hard drive out, and use a "USB Hard Drive Adapter" (available fairly cheap online) to connect the hard drive to a friend's computer, and save all the personal files (documents, pictures, etc.) you can to a folder on the friend's computer or an external hard drive. That way, at least you may not lose your files.
Then, you could try to do a Factory Restore on the computer, and if that works, copy your personal files back to your newly restored computer.

Check cable connection..! PXE-E63: Error while initializing the NIC PXE-MOF: Exiting Intel PXE ROM No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press any key


Hard drive is not detected. Change the Boot sequence in BIOS

1. To access the BIOS you must tap F2 or delete key upon turning the computer on
2. Try to look for the Hard drive if it is detected by BIOS if not got to step 6
3. Look for Boot Sequence or anything that is associated Boot
4. The Order boot of must be 1st: DVD Drive, 2nd: Hard drive, 3rd: Network etc.
5. Save the changes and Restart
6. If you still get the same message I suggest that you take out the hard drive and put it back in until it is detected in BIOS
7. If Step 6 did not work I think you need to replace the Hard drive

Trying to change out power supply on a Gateway DX4822-01. Can hear hard drive spinning, but not getting anything on screen. Unplugged it yesterday. Now wondering if one of the 4-pin needs top be...


Trying the easiest solution first - It sounds as if the power is getting to the hard drive, but the information is not getting to the computer.

Is the IDE/SATA cable attached to the hard drive AND the motherboard?

Are the connections tight?

Is one end of the cable reversed - does pin 1 on the hard drive correspond to pin 1 on the motherboard?

Are the jumper settings on the hard drive set properly - Master/Slave/Cable select?

Are you replacing an IDE hard drive (uses a wide thin ribbon cable) with a SATA drive (uses a narrow, fatter cable). Can your motherboard handle a SATA drive? Perhaps you are trying to install the incorrect hard drive?

My gateway profile 4 desktop will not power on. nothing happens when I push the power button. measured 12v at the computer end of power cord. switch look ok. worked fine yesterday.


Hi,

Remove the power cord and then take out the battery. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds, then plug in just the AC powercord and try turn the laptop on.

If it turns on let it boot into the operating system and then shut it down and put the battery back in.

Hopefully this will resolve the problem but if it doesn't turn on again with the battery in there is a problem with the battery.


Post back if you need more advice.


Good luck.

Computer will not boot


Does your pc make a different noise than usual when you turn it on? If it sounds like clicking (loud) then your hard drive has crashed. You will need to replace it.

Download some free hard drive testing software, like seagate tools,from:  Seagate.com  or another had drive manufactor. They run from a disk w/o windows . If the hard drive checks out try reinstalling the system. Another quick test , for conformation is to hook up you monitor to anther computer just to make sure it is not the monitor. It rarely is.

MY GATEWAY PROFILE 4 ISSUES A PROBLEM WITH THE HARD DRIVE.


Bad news. Your hard drive has had a SMART failure and subsequently crashed. If your data was important, I would get the computer to a skilled professional as soon as possible. Ideally, you can get them to make an image of your drive. That will get you back to right before the crash. If they can't do that, there are data recovery places like gillware.com that can help you out for a flat fee.
