I need to buy a internal hard drive for a Philips Freeline LS2200. Can you advise me if I need a 2.5 or 3.5 inches?


The Philips Freeline LS2200 uses a 320GB SATA Seagate, 3.5 inch width harddrive. (7200RPM)
The usual desktop sized harddrive.

Due to the low costs of SATA desktop harddrives, I would recommend at least a 500GB unit,

Can I install the hard drive from one computer to another?


you open gateway and remove hard drive, then you open the compaq and remove that HDD then you install HDD from gateway power on and you should be good, you may have to reinstall some drivers but unlikely if all your periphs. are the same, the HDD is going to attached to a ribbon cable and will usually be under all other drives in machine

There are many ways to format your hard drive but i will tell the two ways.
  1. while you installing the os like windows xp,2000 it ask you to format the hard disk to install the windows operating system. It comes before the copying the files into the hard disk while you install the windows.
  2. Another way is formatting the harddisk is by seagate software like DM (Disk Manger) is comes with the harddrive or you can download the software from the seagate website for free. DM is the software for formatting . so you can format your harddrive by these software.

How to detect two IDE drives with same brand


You need to set one of the drives to be 'master' and the other to be 'slave'.
This is done by positioning jumpers on the back of the harddrives.
Pretty sure that on the drives is explained somewhere how to position the jumper, for several options.

Good luck,
Please post some feedback.

Re:System not booting


Hey, that a common problem if your harddrive is SATA

but first, check that your harddrive is seen by bios.
If not check cables, you can try reconnecting the cables incase seomthing isnt touching.

If hdd is seen and working

your going to need a SATA driver for your windows setup.
Il tell you more about that after you have checked the harddrive.

How to install second internal hard drive


Yes, you can use, Please see label attached to the harddrive for a jumper setting to become primary harddrive.

in the DVD rom there's also a label on it. but the most common setting is slave is in the center.

C S M -

c-cable select
s-Slave
M- Master
the jumper is set to center to become a slave.


the hard drive is should be a master

connecting to the other end of the IDE cable.
