SOURCE: dvd / cd rom not recognized on my computer list

1) Go to Control Panel. Open the System Icon.
2( Click on Hardware Tab, then click on Device Manager.
3) The device manager will list all of your hardware that is on your computer.If you see a yellow? mark oryellow ! mark next to your DVD/CD rom drive,simply click on it then click Repair. It also may tell you that it is not recognozied. Follow the directions.
4) If you do not see this in your Device Manager go to Add Hardware in your Control Panel which is next to your Add/Remove Programs icon. Click on Add Hardware and it will scan for all hardware.
** This should take care of your problem.If not then somehow the actual connection in your tower has come loose. If so you must open your tower and look for a loose wire going to your DVD/CD rom drive.
*** Please let me know if this corrects your problem.Simply email me(Phil) at: philw19642002@yahoo.com

SOURCE: how do i remove the back of my gateway zx6961

Yikes, an all in one. You're on your own with that one. Just make sure you never buy another all-in-one of anything. They're nothing but an accident waiting to happen.

SOURCE: I cannot get my Gateway zx6961 out of safe mode, I've tried pressing f12 like it says,and going to c drive and doing a system scan on reboot but nothing I've done has worked yet. Need help,

Boot with a Win 7 disc, and choose Repair Your Computer. Then use Startup Repair option.


If this does not work, use the Re-install Windows option. This should install on top and not wipe out.


A free legal Windows image can be downloaded. Check the MS Product Key sticker for what version your system came with. You may have to use your key. IT MUST BE THE SAME VERSION


Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64bit.

Gateway zx6961 will not power on


These machines are not designed for normal Users to fix. You will probably need to take it to an expert. Be sure to tell them if you have files on it that you do not want to lose. If it will cost more than a new machine, just ask them to save your important files to CDs or DVDs and give them to you so you can copy them to another machine.

Dvd-rom sd-616E driver no longer recognized by


Reboot the computer and go into the BIOS, see if its recognized in there, if its not recognized then you'll need to turn the computer off and unseat and reseat the cable and the power connector to the dvd drive. Then turn on the computer again and go into the BIOS, if the dvd drive is still not recognzied then you'll need to replace the drive.

If the dvd drive is recognized in the BIOS and not in windows then you'll need to go into the system restore in windows and choose a date the last time the computer was working, it will restore your computer back to this date and reboot. At that point it should recognize your dvd drive. If it doesn't then your OS is corrupt and you'll need to wipe out the drive and restore your computer back to factory defaults.

If the pc isn't recognizing the hardware the main reason this happens is that you need to install the proper drivers.
