No one seems to be selling that particular part anymore, which laptop do you have? The Gateway Solo 9300? You may have to try to find an upgrade that's compatible as far as the motherboard connection is concerned.

Solo Series 9300 components are here.
Solo Series 9300VE components are here.

If you don't have a Solo 9300, you can look up your laptop model on Gateway's website; newer models can be found here and older models, also called "Legacy Notebooks," here.

Gateway 550mx booting

If it's detected in Bios then it's either a Laser pick up issue, i.e. no longer able to read content of a disc OR the Disc itself isn't bootable. It just depends what exactly happens with a message or not happen when looking for boot files on disc.

Says i have a power calibration problem on a gateway 5480E ..what can i do to correct.


I see that you are having issue with power on the system and the error is a power calibration issue is that correct?

Was there any brand new device added into the machine before this issue happened?

Make sure that the Power supply for the machine has a capacity that can carry and make all the device on the machine run if it will have shortage issue then you will likely have an error as such and may not let other devices work properly on your system/machine.

If no devices were added and was working fine previously then you can check the power cables inside the machine, see if there are lose power cables inside make sure all of the power cables are properly connected and not lose.

I see the issue is with the CD-RW/DVD-ROM on the Machine right, if that will be the case then open the tower and see the power cable connection of the CD/DVD drive and see if it is still connected properly or possibly lose.

I believe this is a desktop Machine right, See this link, this will have all the detail information on how to remove or replace a part inside your Gateway machine .

For proper and correct part and it's compatibility got to the Gateway website or call Gateway.

I hope that this will help.

Have a nice day,

My DVD is not working , i think has problem in the lens. whrere should i got repaair

Combo DVD /CD R/W drivers can be purchased for approx. $50 I doubt you can get it repaired and if you can get it repaired it most likely would cost more than a new DVD/CD drive.

Hello: my computer won't burn a cd. It says to connect a burner through my wmp.

Thank you for your question.

The first step you need to take is to ensure that you have a CD Burner attached to the Computer. Open "My Computer or Windows Explorer" and check under computer heading if the CD/DVD has RW behind the entry. This confirms that you have a Burner in place and the computer is seeing it as such.

If not you will need to have someone with the skill to check the initial BIOS (or "Google" a video) of the computer, where it checks what hardware it has attached and set it properly.

If indeed you have a burner in place it may need to have its drivers updated and you can connect to Gateways home site to obtain updated drivers for the burner. I have provided a link for you, on the homepage, select your Region/Support/Drivers and Downloads, then update your driver.

It should then be good to "go", if not, possibly you would need to have the Drive checked as it might be damaged. If it is under warranty, make arrangements with the dealer/seller you purchased it from.

Kind regards

Would you please take a moment to vote, I use the feedback to assist in answering further questions.
