Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up thenremove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop andget them to test the RAM for you.

Are you sure the charger is the correct specs for your model? Check the label on the laptop and on the charger to be sure they match. The voltage and amps should be the same. Most importantly check the polarity which will be a graphic that looks something like this:


What that is telling you is if the center of the plug is positive or negative. The only thing that matters is that the pictures are the same. If you switch your polarity you will almost always blow out your power supply on the system board. Does the laptop power on or has it not worked since you heard the noise?

If it has not powers on odds are the specs are wrong on your charger and you might have damaged the laptop. If the laptop still works then it is possible the charger is providing too much power or malfunctioning. A laptop will work with a more powerful charger sometimes, but it is never recommended as it will create more heat and reduce the life time of the laptop system board.

If you mean by drive the hard drive, any 2.5" laptop hard drive will work. It must be ATA for this model. www.newegg.com is the best place to find computer parts for a good price. I just purchased a seagate 120gb laptop hard drive for this same model computer.

Check the connections to your hard drive and make sure the sata and power cables are fully connected. Then listen for the spinning sound. If your hard drive is not spinning it may be bad, or it could be an issue with your connectors, either way i would contact gateway for further support as it should be looked at.
