Question about Gateway SL1450-30145063 Notebook
Your Hard Drive is dead, time for a new one (but before you throw it out, be sure it was conencted tightly). (assuming you tried booting from abother a nother laptop's hard drive), if you tried to reinstall windows on it, then there is something wrong with the IDE (or ATA) controller in the laptop, you'll need a new motherboard. However if you just inserted the drive from the other laptop, just to see if it will boot up, theres a 99.9% chance that it will not work unless you format the Master Boot Record.
