I picked up a gateway pc to refurbish and resell. Got it home and one thing after another. The onboard IDE controllers are out. There is a pci dual ide controller installed. The computer will not boot up. I have resolved several issues already by clearing the cmos and starting over. It detectes the hard drive and there is power but not boot. It does not detected the cd rom, but there is power to it. I have moved the ram and replaced the ram. Reseated the on board battery. I can get to the screen asking for safe mode, last known, etc screen, but after any seletection it reboots. I probably know the answer, however I would like a second opinion. I am very hardware and software inclined, but I think I am going through burnout with this one. I do not like something to whip me well not mentally anyway. lol.... I also have a sense of humor. sorry.
