Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have a gateway M-series laptop that fell off the arm of my couch. Since then, it has worked fine except for the dvd rom. I can hear it working but it does not read the disc that is inserted. Is there any way I can fix this myself?

You probably need to replace the drive, buy a replacement drive the old one should come out if you flip the laptop over and unscrew where the drive is

Gateway GM5442 PC Desktop Won't Boot!


3 BEEPS -RAM

Guest Posts: n/a 01-24-2005 We had a power failure in the office this weekend. All the systems are back
up and running fine, except for the receptionists. It's a Gateway
Professional Series. P4 1.3 Ghz. It is giving me three beeps. No boot up
screen and no video source (monitor light stays yellow instead of turning
green). I looked up the beep code and it says three beeps means the ram
needs reseated. Which I have done several times. Also, I have just put in
one stick in difference seats. I have also reseated all the cards at least
three times. I have switched the jumper to try to boot into setup mode.
Nothing there either. Popped out the cmos battery and put it back in. No
good either.

Has all the ram been fried? The fan on the cpu is still spinning. The cd-rom
ejects. I can't hear the hard drive spinning. I guess I can swap the hard
drive for a different one.

Anything I'm missing? YEP

Dvd/CD RW+- not recognizing Dvd disk. CD is fine. Gateway GM5407E only DH16W1P161C on player. Vista Premium 32 OS


open the control panel and click on the system folder, then the hardware tab, then the device manager (you are looking for the cd/dvd rom drives).
When you find it right click on it and check all the tabs to make sure everything is working properly.

Let me know how it turns out and we can take it further if we need too.
