SOURCE: 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.

Take the case sides off and your DVD will either be locked in with a spring loaded slide mechanism or it will be screwed in from either side of it.

I have A gateway dx4870 ub308. when i turn it on it beeps 4 times and even tbought the on light stays . on it won't do anything else

The hard drive or some other critical component may be failing, or just the OS or hard drive corrupted. If you have files that you do not want to lose, you could try this... Pull the hard drive out, and use a "USB Hard Drive Adapter" (available fairly cheap online) to connect the hard drive to a friend's computer, and save all the personal files (documents, pictures, etc.) you can to a folder on the friend's computer or an external hard drive. That way, at least you may not lose your files.
Then, you could try to do a Factory Restore on the computer, and if that works, copy your personal files back to your newly restored computer.

Why does my computer periodically reboot every few minutes? Confirmed - Not a fan/cooling issue Confirmed - Not a memory problem Confirmed - Not a virus

I would have said over heating but if you have tested for that I would still keep an eye on the fan to see if it is slowing down or switching of at the time it reboots.

Loads to a black screen with cursor only

This is one of 2 possible problems.

1. Faulty Hard drive
2. Corrupt operating system

if it's number 2, reinstalling your operating system will do the trick, but be aware you will loose your documents and all data.
Best option is to bring it to a computer technician so they can run a diagnostic test.

also a technician will more than likely be able to recover your data aswell.

I bought a new computer case and I want to use my mobo from my current pc. Gateway DX4870-ub318. I can't tell which pins to use for the power.

You will get better help at a computer repair shop than a component sales outlet. The same problem with two monitors suggests either bad cables or motherboard trouble.
