Okay, I am now OFFICIALLY at Wits End

I have a Gateway Desktop that's gone bonkers on me. I wake up one morning and turn it on, and what I get is:

"Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device and press a key"

That's all it does. I don't have a reboot disk for it, and from watching all the youtube repair channels everyone suggest that I open it up and check all the wiring. I've disconnected the HDD cables and reseated them, I've disconnected the CPU cables and reseated them, Ive checked the BIOS configuration to make sure the 1st choice was to boot from the HDD, and nothing works

I even tried using the HHD from another computer to see if that would solve it and I keep getting the blasted same thing.

What gives?

Good job. If you could go back in time about 25 years you could probably make twice minimum wage with those skills

You're the reason why that fucking indian spends the first two to three minutes asking "there should be a mouse located somewhere, can you see it" and "is the power turned on, have you tried pressing the power button"
