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.

Gateway laptop model# mx 6956 will not power on have new battery and charger all i get in 4 blinks from red light on front of computer


The blinking light means there is a fault, first think you can try is removing the battery and the power adapter and hold the power button down for at least 30 seconds, then reconnect the battery and the power and try turning it on.

If that doesn't work, then try taking the memory sticks out (should be behind a panel on the bottom of the laptop, held by a few small screws), then put them back in and try to start it up.

If neither of these things work, then there could be a more serious problem with the laptop that may require replacment of key components, which could be as expensive as buying a new laptop.

MY Gateway notebook 6510gz is always dyeing on me


You don't need a recovery cd. You just need to remove the hard drive and insert it into an external drive caddy. Then it will become just like an external hard drive. You can browse the drive to copy over your new files and then use the drive for backing up your new files in the future.

Disc consistency, dvd player not recognizing discs


Your cd/dvd drive is most likely failed. Possible controller problem but most likely dvd drive. Replacement is fairly straight forward but replacement may be a bit costly. I would search for sources for used / refurbished drives; contact me if I can assist you further.

Replacing dvd/cd-rom drive on gateway laptop


Depends - what gateway? the one you listed under?? Because the model you posted with already came with a DVD drive.

Reply with the model of your machine and i can probably find you help. Gateway usually has instructions on their site.

The instructions for the M305CRV are here.

That model can use pretty much any standard laptop CD if you dont mind the face not matching get a generic drive like the Sony CRX880a at
