My computer will not load windows, how do I remove a CD from my Gateway GZ7112


there should be a tiny hole under the drive door for ejecting the drive manually by pushing a small enough metal object in it such as a small screw driver. This will eject the cd. Thanks, Cody

Tsstcorp cddvdw ts l633p error code 19


Code 19 means there is a driver conflict such as two devices trying to use the same resources.

Try this - Control Panel - Device Manager - CD/DVD - double click the device - Driver's Tab - click
Update Drivers (this will likely do nothing) - then RIGHT CLICK the drive - UNINSTALL - REBOOT
this will refresh the default driver stack.

Normally the above will fix that issue if not work your way down through these even if you have done
them before.

DVD/CD don't work any more, not recognized by the computer. Driver is missing? Windows Vista


Hello,

Try to go this website gur.in, click registry tweaks and on the Tech domain registry look for Restore missing CD drive. Just run it and allow. After that restart the laptop. Check if CD/DVD drive is back and test a disc.

Hope it works!

Cd drive wont eject


Try ejecting it through "My Computer". Right click on the drive and select "eject". If you can't locate the drive, then it's probably missing the driver.

Cd/dvd driver


Hi

cd/dvd drive doesn't require drivers at all, the drivers come with windows and if you are missing or corrupt drivers on the cd / dvd drive then

try this:
http://www.fixya.com/support/r548399-fix_non_working_cd_dvd_shows_in_device


if that doesn't solve the problem then use the windows cd to install windows to the computer again and start over or use the restore cds to restore the computer.

Hard drive driver problem


Hi,

It is possible that your hard drive is a SATA and therefore not readily readable by 98, XP but surprised not even by Vista. In any case, since you would still prefer to run XP (due to other software compatibility issues), pls press F6 when prompted by the XP installer. Additionally, you would need to have ready in a floppy the appropriate SATA drivers for your motherboard. They maybe downloaded from the motherboard manufacturer's website or possibly in the installer/driver CD that came with the PC.

Other than the above, it is also possible that you may have some issues with the availability of XP drivers for the other devices for that computer specially if it is branded.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Ntldr is missing


seems your MBR is damage. but you can repair it if only you can boot in windows cd and entering in the recovery console.

To run the Recovery Console from the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD-ROM, follow these steps:
1.    Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.

Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.
2.    When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
3.    If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.
4.    When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
5.    At the command prompt, type this commands one at a time.

FIXMBR  C:
FIXBOOT  C:
COPY [CDDRIVE]:\I386\NTLDR  C:\
COPY [CDDRIVE]:\I386\NTDETECT.COM  C:\
BOOTCFG  /rebuild


6.    To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

no warranty...you use on your own risk :)
