Having problems with your Gateway Solo2300 200MMX Pentium, 200 MHz (2500952) Retail Processor Upgrade ?

I have a gateway solo 2500and missing something

\015 It is missing whatever hooks the hard to the computer. Is this caddy what does it? or is there cables or ribbons also inaddition to this caddy??\015

Answers :

Are you talking about the hard drive? If so, some have a ribbon cable, they are referred to as IDE cables or ATA, you can get one at any computer store. To check to see if this is the cable you need, look on the hard drive, there should be one slot with 40 pins, and another smaller slot with 8 or so pins and another with 4 large pins. If it has the 40 pin slot, it uses the IDE cable, the larger 4 pins are where you hook up the power cable from the power supply. If you dont see the 40 pin, you may see two straight black bars, with a small 90 degree bend at the end of them, that would be a sata cable that you would need.

Dim Screen First, I know little or nothing about a Gateway laptop. However, I am looking at a used Gateway Solo 1400. The screen is so dim it is useless.
