Gateway 450rog I decided I wanted to have a second hard drive -- seemed simple enough. I purchased the caddy and hard drive, read instructions on the internet. I understand that there are two ways of connecting the caddy - hot/cold. Well, being the risk taker I seem to be, I decided to not shut down my laptop.

Sir,

This is not problem with motherboard. u wont replace motherboard. When the laptop bootup press F8 they showing the list of harddrive(harddrive Number) that detected. If u show the second hard drive (i.e caddy) u need not to worry. Sometimes the OS wont recognize the external hard drive it is problem with OS itself so u just reinstall the OS it will be detected.

let me know if it helped or not


thanks
good luck

My HP Pavilion dv9005us has two issues which I cannot resolve. The wireless device is not even recognized or detected by the computer, and there seems to be an electrical problem where the lighted buttons at the top flicker on and off from time to time, which may also be linked to an issue where the computer will at times refuse to turn on after I press the on button and watch it all light up in response and immediately shut off. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.
