There are no 18" Gateway laptops so I'd love to hear what you end up getting...

I got a problem. I just bought another drive to put in my gateway fx 7805u to use to store movies on and the device manager sees it but it not showing up under computer. I have tried searching everywhere and the only thing I come up with is raid. I would like it to be just another drive I can access. Is this possiable. I know with my desktop I can. Any help would be awsome.

You have to format it or the OS wont recognize it. Go to start and right click on Computer and select Manage. Computer management will open, in the left pane select Disk Management. You'll see your new HDD there. Right click on the drive, format it and assign it a drive letter (optional)

Ok guys I have a couple issues.... is there any way one of you can rip your recovery disc and put up the iso ? Also is there any way to get rid of the bios password? I called gateway and they basically think i am talking about the windows logon . I tried taking out the cmos battery for days ...and its still there. I tried some bios programs but they didnt work. Any help would be appreciated.

What do you need the recovery disk for? When I got my Gateway I immediately requested an OS disk and I don't even know where the recovery disks disappeared to. Isn't it just the default gateway install with the OS, drivers, and bloatware? I would suggest downloading the drivers and just installing the OS from a clean source, reusing your key of course.

As for the BIOS, you can usually clear it by removing the CMOS bat and all other power for 1 minute. If that doesn't do it you'll have to contact Gateway, unless you know of a BIOS reset jumper on the motherboard...
