Having problems with your Gateway 4525GZ Notebook ?

Gatewat 4525GZ Intermittenly cant find DVD/CD Drive

\015 I bought this computer that had been crashed. It would only get to the page that asked which type of startup ie: SafeMode, Prompt, Network, Normal. No matter what you chose it would restart.I entered the recovery disk and booted with cdrom at bios.This allowed me to get to dos. I formated and it prompted for a restart. I did and started to try to load windows and it now intermittenly will not find the Rom drive. I tried taking it out and reinstalling in case there is a bad connection and it helps somtime then will lose it again. Im not sure if its coincidence. Could this be the Rom drive or a problem with the MB\015

Answers :

I got similar problem to this one. the only diff. is it was saying hdd not installed. my chum's laptop was a Toshiba just abt a year old now... she brought it to me saying it crashed and she tried to installed it herself. but it doesnt complete its installation.. a message appear and says " installation will not continue because there is no hdd installed, etc..." bios setup detects the hdd 120gig.. so what was wrong with it... 1 week the laptop stays with me and i'm trying to figure out what possible error i'm not seeing... everything i checked and doubled checked cant find any hardware problem... guess what, i just changed my XP installer bought a new one.. i run installation again with that new OS the installation proceeds normally and finished under an hour later... your problem could be the same as i encountered. IMHO, why dont you try to install another OS and observe what happens next...

It can be 2 things... RAM, or Hard Drive. Sometimes that happends because the HD has a bad sector... Only way to solve the problem is to change HD. You can try to test the problem with Memtest86, and MHDD... you can find this programs in Hiren's boot CD... http://www.9down.com/Hiren-s-BootCD-9-7-54477/ download it, burn a CD and try to find the problem, in memory or hard drive.
