How do I nremove the cover on a Gateway 200arc to replace the DVD drive..... Thanx


Looking at it from the bottom with the dvd drive to your right look for a screw about five and a half inches or so from the right hand side will either be in the middle line of the dvd drive or offset to oneside or the other. remove it and gently pull on the dvd drive or use an old credit card to pry it out till the connectors release. Then slide the replacement drive into place, and put the screw you removed back in.

No operating system found, gateway 200arc


Presuming its not the worst (your hard disk has failed) quite often this is the simplest of things...like you have left a USB stick in...these are often bootable and so the computer tries to boot from them fist, and then doesnt bother trying your propper hard disk next..hence fail.
also check if you mahine has a floppy disk drive there is none in it.
other than that.
check that your bios recognises it.
by which I mean usualy on startup it offers you an option to go into setup.
[f1] or sometime [del] or whatever.
go into there ensure that your HDD is recognised by the system and check its listed in boot order also (only change these if its not one of the simpler problems above)

Gateway 200ARC goes to "Last Known Good Configuration" screen


try reseating the dvd drive and then go into the BIOS to be sure that the drive is being recognized. Actually go into the area of the BIOS that shows the name of the dvd drive that it recognizes.

It it does recognize the dvd drive properly then try other boot cd's. It still may not recognize them.

If so try another known good dvd drive in the laptop and if you have the same problem then take out the hard drive and then see if the system will boot up off of the dvd drive then. If it still doesn't boot then the motherboard is bad.

If it does boot then that means the new hard drive is bad and shorting out the dvd drive controller on the motherboard and the hard drive would need to be replaced.

Hope this helps clear up things for you and sorry for not responding sooner.

My 200ARC notebook/laptop will not power-up I have replaced the battery but it just won't turn on HELP!


If you replaced the battery and still no go it's probably your motherboard. You can try reseating the memory but if you're not getting any life out of the machine then for sure it's the motherboard.

Gateway 200arc broken hinges


Solution #1 is not accurate. You can find a good number of replacement hinges on Ebay for around $40. The repair is not difficult and can be done yourself :)

Hard drive loked beacuse master password


ahhh..that's intense...the password, if it's not in your personal brain memory, is lost forever. You might need to have the drive re formatted, and start all over again.
