It's really simple..turn over the unit..find the cd drive..trace your finger about 1/3 of the way along the middle on bottom..you should see a single screw.remove it..then on face of cd, should be a release button..press it..should slide right out.

I have a gateway laptop (no cd, preloaded) Keep


Your missing the file from the nt detect application on the C: drive You will need to obtain a good copy of windows or find an OS that you can work around it with. I would try using Ubuntu as a live session disk and replacing the corrupted nt detection files from a disk or website.

this might help you

Sounds like a bad hard drive. Back up all your data.

My gateway laptop will not display anything except the name GATEWAY. I was instructed to purchase an operating system cd, now that I have the cd to load it on the laptop I discovered it does not give me...


it shows the hard disk of your laptop is un-detectable. check the hard disk connector/power, if u can or consult a technician for the same. if it does. then put the system disk in to cd drive and boot from it.

My gateway laptop dvd player keeps ejecting my cd's or dvd or ejects on it own.


Are you pressing your arm/hand up against it after your push it in?
If not I would contact GateWay you may need a repair.

Gatway Support/ Tech chat is the way to go just tell them the issue and they will tell you what needs to be done.

You have GateWay FX right?

If so the warranty is still in effect so repair is free

I have 2 Gateway laptop computers and in one of them the CDROM Drive got fried. I would like to replace it with the one from the other laptop. How do I exchange them?


Before beginning, review electrostatic discharge (ESD) precautions. Disconnect the power adapter, the modem and network cables, and remove the battery before removing the hard drive bay cover. Remove the RAM door whichi s secured by one screw. Now loosen the two hard drive screws and pull the DVD/CD-RW drive from the laptop. Replace the cover before restoring power or reconnecting the modem and network cables.
