Question about Gateway CX2724 Notebook

1 Answer

I need to change the SATA on the BIOS of my gateway CX2724, but when I go into the System Setup (F2), I cannot go down to the SATA section. What can I do to change this? Right now, this PC is trashed, as it started the restore, then stopped.

Do you have a new drive installed in the system right now. If not you need to change the drive and it should detect it automatically. If you have it install and it is still not detecting it you need to go into the bios and select auto detect or auto for it to find the drive on its own. The reason that you may not be able to access this setting is that auto detect is already activated. Hope this helps with your issue.

Gatewat CX2724 original HD died (Hitachi 100GB @5400RPM) I just installed a brand new WD 250GB @7200RPM. Since I didn't have the original recovery disk I'm trying to install a full version Windows XP...


if you have a new hard drive you will have to install the windows operating system from an external source such as a cd drive
go to bios --boot settings and change from 1st boot hard drive to 1st boot cd
install the win os and then you can install the rest
when finished go back to bios and -boot and change back to 1st boot hard drive

I installed a Western Diginal SATA 1.5TB in my Gateway GM5084 PC and now it's in a loop at boot and won't boot Windows. I go into BIOS and disable SATA and all is fine. Any ideas?


From what you wrote, it sounds like Windows is trying to boot from this new drive instead of your old drive (which has the Windows operating system on it). If this is true, then you need to go into BIOS SETUP and change the boot device priority so that Windows will look at your old drive before it looks at the new one. When you first power on your computer, start tapping the DEL key (on some PC's it's the F1, F2, or F10 key) until you get into Bios Setup. Then use the arrow keys to navigate to your boot menu and reset the boot device priority. (Normally your CD drive is set as the first boot device and the hard drive with your operating system is set as the second device.

The screen color is off on a gateway cx2724


It's probably hard ware related but we should try updating the video adapter driver to double check.

You can get them HERE.

Download, install, reboot. If the problem persists or if it occurs in the boot up bios screen it is for sure hardware related. In most cases the lcd needs to be swapped.

No, you do not need to install a new driver as long as that is the same sata hard disk tha used to work in your Gateway computer. Just boot into your windows xp installation cd and let the setup continue.

Should you need further assistance, please let me know.

You need to go into the BIOS and change the SATA type to IDE and not AHCI. I had this same problem on my laptop. Once I switched it to IDE it installed XP no problem. I don't know if Vista or 7 work with it set to IDE mode.

A new hard drive


The sata connector was probably disabled in the BIOS to prevent you from getting a missing drive error on startup before this was installed. Press F2 at the Dell Splash screen to enter BIOS setup, come down to Drives and change the setting for the sata connector to ON. When you reboot go back into the BIOS setup and it should report the Drive ID and capacity.
