How to remove the dvd drive from gateway sx2801-01

I opened up the case to change the ram, the only problem is though, is that the DVD drive is covering 3 of the 4 ram slots, and the top screw for the DVD drive holder is less than an inch away from the ceiling of the case, how do I unscrew it in such a small space?

I want to upgrade the RAM, and when I opened the desktop the dvd is positioned over the memory slots. I CANNOT FIGURE OUT HOW TO REMOVE THE DVD TO SWOP OUT THE RAM


see if there the motherboard is secured onto a rack that can slide out of the casing. most newer computers have this feature. if not, you will have to unscrew the dvd drive from the casing to get to memory slots. unplug the drive, find the mounting screws, and remove the drive. remember to plug everything back up (power, interface cable, digital cable if present).

good luck.

How to remove dvd from gateway nv54


If you are asking about removing the dvd device itself, on the bottom of the case there will be a single screw that holds the drive in place in the case. This screw is marked by a circle with a small wedge taken out. Remove this screw, not turn the laptop back over and with a paperclip, open the paperclip and stick one end in the black hole on the door or bezel of the dvd player, this is an emergency eject button. When the tray pops out, pull the tray and the rest of the drive will follow.

Dvd player seems blocked


if this is a laptop, remove the drive from the laptop and try to put a paper clip in the little hole in the drive to open it manually, if its a desktop then do the same thing, but u dont have to remove the drive from the computer. if all else fails, buy a new one. a dvd burner in a desktop computer is only 40-50 bucks.

DVD ram not recognizing dvds/matshita DVD-RAM-UJ-85JS.


I too had the same problem, just take the DVD case out by unscrewing it from the bottom, then open the DVD case and jently clean the lens with a warm cloth. Put it back in and start your computer. It will work well.
