Having problems with your Gateway 505GR PC Desktop ?

When i try to power it up it just makes a clicking sound


Answers :

Open the side of the case and locate your hard drive. Pull the red-yellow-black power cable from the hard drive and see if you still hear the clicking noise when you start the machine up. If you don't, i believe your hard drive is toasted.
