Look on your computer for a sticker with that number ... it should be on the case somewhere.

I need a driver for my backpack DVD +- RW model number 224010. Lost my installation CD and now have a new computer that doesn't recognize the drive


If you are using Microsoft, have you tried using the driver search tool? When Windows says it does not recognize a drive via pop up, click it to have the option for windows to search for the drivers online. If that doesn't work, you can manually search for drivers, which can probably be found on Micro Solutions' website. If the PC cannot detect any drive at all, then odds are the installation was incorrectly done.

First you will need to register at gateway, I took the serial number you provided and gateway has no record of it, once you register it, you should be able to purchase the recovery disks. I'm including the link:
https://secure.tx.acer.com/RCDB/Main.aspx?brand=gateway&sn=0000000000 you need to register in order for this link to work, that serial number has to be in gateways system, once it is you can order recovery media. Hope this helps

Have been directed to find my Serial number for my Gateway deskto


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. The serial number is usually located on the top, left, right, or back panel of the computer. The serial number is printer on a black sticker with white lettering.

Also see this link for Serial code location--

Gateway Computer Serial Code Location

Also see this link for more info--

Gateway Computer serial location

And if you are unable to locate the serial code anywhere then right click on My computer icon on desktop, then click on properties and from there you will be able to see the serial number from there.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Missing drivers for Gateway desktop DVD drive. manufacturer's website useless.


I recognize that you've previously visited Gateway's support site, but I recommend trying again at the follow page. You can choose your exact desktop from this list:

http://support.gateway.com/support/drivers/ddaStep.asp?platform=10021&st=browse

You should be able to find the driver for your DVD drive there.

If not, you can open the computer case, find out what the manufacturer of the DVD-ROM is and go to their site to find the necessary driver.

Also, have you tried using the "Update Driver" utility in Windows? You can manage drivers from within the Computer Management console of Windows.

1. Right-click on My Computer and select Manage.
2. Then select Device Manager.
3. Expand CD/DVD-ROM drives.
4. Right-click the drive and select "Update Driver"

--Good luck!

Looking for info on m/bGATEWAY DX4800


Go to the Gateway website and search under "Support" - Downloads. You can enter your computer details or your serial number and find drivers and manuals. The manuals should have a schematic of the motherboard that is in your computer. If you use the Serial number or production number method to search your will get the precise manual for your exact system.

Desktop Machine Stopped Recognizing CD/DVD drives


Hello. CD and DVD drivers pretty standard these days. Generic even. You can go buy CD and DVD drives all day long and install them and they will come right up in Windows.

My latest was a Blue Ray / DVD by Sony because I wanted to watch and copy Blu Ray content (which I own copies of for sure...)

Anyway I did a search on your issue and it seems to be pretty common one. It's never happened to me (knock on wood) but perhaps there some special bad thing you have to do - or virus that you have to get - that mangles the Windows Registry or such. The top article was on Windows XP I believe ... but there were more.

Installing a DVD driver


Simply go to Device Manager, delete the entry for your DVD drive and reboot your PC. The OS should automatically install the needed drivers. Usually DVD and CD drivers. The built-in drivers from the OS should suffice.
