    Nope, not what I meant.
    Thanks though I appreciate your response nonetheless.
    Physically, remove the CD Rom from this Gateway M250 laptop.

    The CD Rom drive.

  • areagan2 Dec 16, 2008

    Tired the back side.
    I removed the screws that would seem to hold the CD Rom drive (only two) to no avail.

    I'm thinking, access to the CD Rom drive is most likely from the top.
    I most likely wrong since I've never had a reason to remove a CD Rom drive and my chances of being wrong are favorable.
    I actually hope someone with some experience with Gateway Laptop's but specifically a M250 Laptop can/will help.

    The net seems limited or I'm not Googling my search correctly, on a solution/resolve. There was a "how to" access the CD Rom on a Toshiba laptop, but that did me no good.

There should be some screws or clips directly on the drive when looking at the bottom of the laptop. Some laptops (Sony certainly) require special tools to remove certain retainers. Once the screws are removed / clips unclipped, the drive should slide out, possibly you'll need to open the tray and gently pull that to unseat the drive itself. The replacement drives connectors and fitment should also provide awareness of how it's connected to the laptop.

Remove cdrom drive


Removing the cd rom drive will not make your computer start up. Or are you saying the cd rom drive will not start up? CD rom drives are very sensitive on the disks they read. Most of them have a problem reading some of the discs that someone created on another computer. Make sure you're trying to read store bought discs.
Removing the cdrom drive is very simple. Turn the laptop over and you will normally see a screw with the icon of a circular cd on it. remove that screw then you can grab the cd rom unit by the door and pull it outl

Tsstcorp cd dvdw ts-l633a scsi cdrom device can't read the driver or it is corrupt. I am getting error code 39


Using Device Manager, look to see it laptop is sensing the presence of the cd-rom. (if it is not on the list, try removing / rebooting / and then reinstalling cd-rom) If it shows on the list, click to open it's properties and then delete the drivers for cd-rom (this will cause the laptop to reload the drivers on the next reboot) if it still doesn't work, go to micosoft updates and try to update the drivers there. If it still malfunctions, then the cd-rom may be faulty. Try replacing it with another cd-rom and see what you get.

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.

Removing faulty cd drive.


if you look right abovce the keyboard you will see a strip that needs to come off ok then you will see 3 screws and one of those screws holds the keyboard in that needs to come off
also after you lift the keyboard from the slot it is in then you will see the cd rom there syhould be a screw on the back of the laptop that is holding the cd rom in place ok just remove the screw and slide out the cdrom ok and just put in the new cd rom and put the screw that holds it in and then replace the keyboard and the screws for that and then replace the strip and you are finished now just power it up and it should recognize the cd rom ok i hope that this is a fixya for you best regards mike
